Light, space, style, luxury - and considerable historic character besides. Built in 1864, this unique wood-frame home is one of the earliest in Stuyvesant Heights. While the exterior flaunts singular Italianate charm with its original 2-car stable-like garage - the interior will surprise you with an expansive open floor plan, excessive light, modern styling and luxurious amenities such as HVAC, smart-phone temperature control, wired-in sound, new oak flooring throughout, and even a sauna. All new mechanicals and a new roof provide the luxury of peace of mind. Thoughtfully gut-renovated, there is not a wasted inch in this incredible 60' x 20' townhome. The parlor floor is a bright, open space that will welcome loved ones for casual gatherings or holiday festivities for years to come. A huge chef's kitchen with ample custom cabinetry and quartz countertops features two sinks, a six-burner Bertazzoni range, Miele wall oven, Viking refrigerator and dishwasher, wine refrigerator, and a sizeable island - perfect for cooking while basking in the sunlight that streams in through the oversized doors accessing the back deck and passage to the garden. A marble wood-burning fireplace is the centerpiece of the large living area withits pretty bank of windows overlooking landmarked Stuyvesant Avenue. A chic powder room completes this perfect entertaining space. Upstairs, the spacious master bedroom has a full-width private deck, built-in closets and en suite marble bath. Two more sizeable bedrooms, another full bathroom and a dedicated laundry area with washer and dryer round out convenient modern living. Up one more flight, the top floor features a substantial bonus room that can be used as an additional bedroom - or create the perfect office or playroom. Downstairs from the parlor floor is the finished basement with a lavish sauna and a full bath - a sanctuary for relaxation and decompression in the comfort of your own home. In addition, the basement is large enough to accommodate another recreation area, gym, or wine storage. Last but not least, the final gem is the secret garden extending 50 feet behind the garage for an oasis of privacy and outdoor fun. The garage and garden are on a separate 23' x 80' lot included with this offering. 329 Stuyvesant is ideally situated on lovely Stuyvesant Avenue just a few blocks from the Utica Avenue express A/C train - which will take you to downtown Manhattan in 15 minutes.
