This is that once-upon-a-time home that is rarely seen. You begin with a 20 ft wide, stately landmarked brownstone with many museum-quality details sitting on one of the best blocks in Brooklyn. It has been taken apart piece by piece, the original details lovingly restored, with modern conveniences and appliances. All this was done at the highest level of craftsmanship and care. Welcome to 486 1st Street!
The Garden level of this duplex residence contains three bedrooms, two baths, an office/flex space, and a private rear garden. The Parlor level contains the living room, formal dining room, kitchen, and powder room plus a south-facing deck.
When you enter through the stoop you are seduced by the high ceilings, the huge living room, and a quintessential parquet floored dining room with a mantled fireplace that makes you feel like you've been invited to dine with the Duke of Park Slope. The natural light-flooded kitchen just off of the dining room carries you through to a south-facing balcony that overlooks and descends down to the garden. This kitchen has everything a Michelin chef would want-the finest appliances, large and well-placed counters, abundant storage, and staying true to form with the promise that every consideration has been taken with this home- even the tiled floor is radiant heated. You can't help but think about all the epic entertaining and family dinners that will be enjoyed in this home; this dining room is exactly what an elegant brownstone parlor floor should be without any compromise.
The expansive living area, with thoughtfully restored details, achieves the tasteful balance of classic and original brownstone appeal meeting today's modern sensibilities. Complete with gallery-worthy wall-washed lighting, it is the perfect backdrop for you to bring your own decorating style and showcase your favorite art. The Garden level master ensuite exudes warmth and comfort with a built-in cedar closet, marble mantle, large windows, and a spa-like master bath with double sinks and once again- radiant floors. To the rear are two spacious bedrooms overlooking the tranquil garden and a flexible office/playroom or den in between. The second bathroom and the laundry are in their own area and perfectly placed for everyday convenience and simplicity. In the basement, you will find a handcrafted gated wine cellar and extensive private storage. The outdoor landscaped south-facing garden and patio offer opportunities to leisurely take in the outdoors, exercise your gardening skills and enjoy time with family and friends. Every mechanical system is at the highest level including multiple zone control with central AC and sleek Runtal radiators. The lower level entrance adds even another advantage to make life easy by offering a mudroom area to keep your home clutter-free. This residence is for those of you that yearn for the perfect luxury brownstone without wanting to have the maintenance, gut renovations and compromises that can come along with it.
