Welcome home. This lovely 2-family brownstone townhouse is nestled in the historic neighborhood of Sunset Park. The landmarked property features beamed ceilings, five fireplaces, intricate millwork, and a backyard oasis. The 20 x 45 home includes a sprawling owners' duplex on the garden and parlor floors that was completely renovated in 2015. The top floor features a large two-bedroom rental unit with tons of natural lighting. You will notice beautiful charm throughout the property, from the fireplaces, original fixtures, and moldings to the new cabinetry, tilework, and open space design. The critical element of the design was to bring in natural light from the garden. The renovation added structural steel beams spanning the home to open up the first floor and support the back wall of casement windows. The electric, plumbing, and heating systems are all new and efficient.

Step into the owner's duplex via the garden floor entrance, and you will notice New Hampshire tung-oiled white pine flooring throughout the living/dining room, kitchen, and parlor level. The bright kitchen includes Vermont Slate countertops, custom cabinetry, Bosch Dishwasher, Lieber Fridge, a refurbished 1930s antique stove, and an original cast iron sink overlooking the lush backyard and patio. The garden level also includes a 3/4 bath and a large full basement- which can be utilized as a rec space, office, or gym. The parlor level of the duplex has two large bedrooms, one full bathroom with heated flooring, and a stackable LG washer/dryer. The parlor floor features high ceilings, beautiful soapstone fireplaces, perfectly preserved woodwork, and tons of natural light.

On the top floor, you will find a sizable 2-bedroom/1 bathroom rental unit with two skylights and plenty of southern natural light. This floor is an excellent opportunity to generate rental income to cover mortgage costs or be used as an in-law suite. As seen throughout the home, this floor also boasts all the original details that make Brooklyn Brownstones so alluring.

The rear garden is an oasis from the hustle of the city. The large yard includes a mature fig tree, a Bartlett pear tree, and a wall of blackberry bushes. Blue hydrangea and pink azalea bushes brighten up this wonderful outdoor space. Plenty of room left over for your urban farm!

With the home conveniently located between Fourth and Fifth Avenues, you will have access to all of the shops, supermarkets, and restaurants Sunset Park offers. The R train is around the corner at 53rd street, while the N train is just a few blocks away with quick transportation to Manhattan, Barclays Center, or Coney Island. Further transportation options include the NYC ferry stop at the nearby Brooklyn Army Terminal (20 minutes to Wall Street/35 minutes to Rockaway) and ample CitiBike stations. Sunset Park, and its Olympic pool, are just a few blocks away and have one of the highest elevations in the city for sunset views of lower Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty. Several blocks to the West is the waterfront at Bush Terminal Park, a fun spot for picnics, strolls, and biking. Find cutting-edge shopping, nightlife, and Industry City, all within walking distance.
