413 51st Street is an elegantly designed townhouse on a tree-lined street in the heart of Sunset Park. Comprised of an upper and lower duplex, the house can be used as a single or a two-family home.
The upper duplex is awe-inspiring, created with form and function in mind. The parlor floor is 53' deep and can accommodate an array of living room/dining room configurations. A recessed, hardwood ceiling creates an even more open and natural feel. Custom coat/storage closets align almost invisibly between the stairs and the powder room. The room currently hosts a striking ten person dining table, milled from a downed Greenwood Cemetery tree - and is also available to the new owner. Beyond the dining area is the elegant kitchen outfitted with Pioneer cabinetry and Fischer & Playkel appliances. From the kitchen, the sliding doors, open onto a deck with stairs down to the private back yard. Seven year old bamboo provides seclusion and shade, evoking feelings of an island hideaway. Fully concrete and designed with a wraparound planter, it's the perfect place to host summer barbecues or simply escape the city without leaving your home.
Back inside and upstairs, you'll find three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and the audio/laundry room. The spacious front bedroom faces South and has four windows, flooding the room with light during the day and offering sunset views in the evening. This room features exposed brick, two double door closets and a recessed ceiling with dimmer lights as well as a pendant fixture. The middle bedroom, is enhanced by a recessed ceiling and skylight, and features a window and closet and comfortably accommodates a queen bed and furnishings. Next to this bedroom is the shared bathroom, also with a skylight. All the bathrooms in the house have been outfitted with Fresca fixtures, including their Pavia Shower Massage Panels, which elevate your everyday shower to a spa treatment. The laundry closet contains a Samsung VRTPlus Washer and Samsung MultiSteam VentSensor Dryer. Next to the W/D are the controls for the multi room audio system - powered by Russound.
Finally, the Master bedroom, an oasis of peace and tranquility, features a 12'4" ceiling; custom closets, recessed lighting and a center-piece light fixture. The en-suite bathroom has a double sink and a skylight. The North wall of the bedroom features double sliding glass doors that open to the balcony. The perfect place to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning sun.
The lower duplex is laid out in an open concept with a bright, barrel windowed bedroom in the front and a bedroom in the back, leading to the backyard. The kitchen has been outfitted with Whirlpool appliances including dishwasher. A set of wide stairs lead to the finished basement where you have this unit's second full bathroom; W/D hook up and ample space for a gym, play area or music room.
Located just a block from the R train and across the street from the brand new Sunset Park library, this is an ideal location for your new home.
In addition to this amazing townhouse, the seller has two reserved parking spaces around the corner that they are happy to pass on to the new owner.
