Truly exceptional and absolutely stunning! This 4-bedroom, 2.5 bath 'smart' home with a fully finished rec room/home theater will take your breath away. Recently renovated from top to bottom, it is in pristine condition - no need to do any work before you move in. The renovation was done by a boutique developer with an eye for detail who spared no expense on the infrastructure of the house. No half-measure mechanical updates here: the plumbing, electrical, heating and cooling systems were entirely replaced by highly reputable contractors. New high-efficiency furnaces with chillers provide zoned central heating and cooling. The house has been fully insulated to save money and energy. Thoroughly renovated houses of this quality rarely come on the market. (Don't be fooled by houses that look updated but have ancient mechanicals or have had poor work done without permits)
The house offers four floors of varied spaces, all designed with great style. The main floor has a spacious, open plan living room, dining room, and kitchen. The kitchen has Carrara marble kitchen counters, a herringbone tile backsplash, a large island with room for four stools and a generous pantry-wall. There is also a half-bath on this floor. The patio door leads onto a cedar and ipe deck, looking over the magical, professionally landscaped backyard.
On the floor above are three bedrooms and a marble-clad bath. The very top floor feels like a private retreat. The entire floor is devoted to the primary bedroom and its spa-like marble ensuite bath with double sinks and a luxurious double shower. There are also built-in clothes closets and drawers and a skylight above the bed for stargazing.
In the basement is the home theater. This may become your favorite room in the house! The 65' OLED TV and high-end speakers provide a truly mind blowing audio/visual experience. You'll be surprised that this level of picture and sound quality are even possible outside of a commercial movie theater but they are, and the owner is willing to leave the system intact for the new owners.
This house also contains several smart-home features: voice-controlled lights, Nest thermostats, an extensive security system by Abode, an Arlo doorbell/cameras, and an irrigation system for the front and back yards controlled by smart timers. Supporting all of these smart devices is an Eero Pro 3-piece mesh network router that delivers more than 500mbps over wifi.
The lush backyard has a stone patio and several other zones for relaxing, hosting and playing. This lot is 120' deep instead of 100' so the yard, at 20'x60', is extra large. Plantings in the backyard and front garden were chosen to provide year-round interest. Need parking: It is possible to rent a spot on the block.
On the border between Kensington and Ditmas. Prospect Park and the Tennis Center are a short bike ride away. A few minutes from the Q train (Cortelyou stop). Local restaurants/ cafes include The Farm on Adderley, Mimi's Hummus, Purple Yam, Sycamore, Lea, The Castello Plan, and Qathra.
