Breathtaking design meets elegant luxury in this thoroughly gut-renovated, jaw-dropping, five-floor townhouse in prime Brooklyn Heights. Featuring five bedrooms, two home offices, two outdoor spaces and an elevator, this exquisite residence caters to refined daily life and lavish entertaining with ease.
A majestic foyer introduces the 25-foot-wide townhome's superior finishes and fixtures: Dramatic millwork abounds, including ornate moldings, wainscoting and paneling. Soaring tray ceilings boast recessed and designer lighting. Inlaid and herringbone floors run underfoot. The home's thorough renovation included a new concrete-reinforced superstructure within the historic faade. The result is taller ceilings, outstanding stability and unmatched sound attenuation. The elevator is an oversized commercial-grade model with a double sliding-door - a rarity in private residences.
Off the foyer, an entry hall includes a powder room and coat closet. The formal living room welcomes graceful gatherings alongside a white agate gas fireplace and original storefront windows with custom shutters that provide the perfect combination of privacy and light. A dining room with banquette seating leads to the gourmet kitchen lined by a wall of windows and backyard views. Swaths of marble top the Scavolini cabinetry. A waterfall island/breakfast bar provides ample seating, a sink and a dishwasher. An integrated Sub-Zero refrigerator joins the gleaming Tuscany series Viking range and hood.
Step onto the large paved rear patio, trimmed in privacy fencing and planter boxes, for gracious outdoor dining and entertaining. There is ample area to create a yard for all seasons.
Ascend the grand staircase illuminated by a 40-foot chandelier or step onto your private elevator to arrive at the home's regal great room. A black agate fireplace acts as the stunning focal point, while three large windows frame treetop views over Hicks Street. A rear-facing junior suite offers a walk-in closet and an en suite bathroom. The windowed library provides the perfect space for working or studying from home.
On the third level, a full-floor owner's suite offers an east-facing bedroom and sitting area topped by a crystal chandelier. Two walk-in closets flank a gorgeous spa bathroom bathed in Italian marble and top-of-the-line fixtures. A freestanding soaking tub joins a rain shower for two, a cedar-lined sauna with LED lighting and speakers, a private water closet with a Toto Neorest commode/bidet, a double vanity and makeup counter. Offering outstanding security and safety, the owner's suite can also act as an impenetrable safe room with blast/ballistic-resistant walls and doors.
The top floor features another bedroom suite with a walk-in closet and private bath. Two more bedrooms share a sleek full bath outfitted with floor-to-ceiling marble, a bathtub and a frameless glass shower. Above, the home's spectacular roof deck invites lounging and entertaining alongside panoramic views.
Head to the finished basement to find an ideal mix of intimate gathering space and utility. A windowed and sunlit family room is the perfect spot for movie nights or play dates, or a place to just hang out with friends. Stow bikes under the stairs, and enjoy the convenience of three additional large storage rooms or space for staff. The large laundry room features a side-by-side washer-dryer and sink.
The dramatic finished roof deck with Trex decking offers endless options and sweeping views of Brooklyn and Manhattan. Located on a tree-lined block within the Brooklyn Heights Historic District, this home is at the epicenter of coveted Brooklyn living. You'll find beautiful open space in every direction, including the famed Promenade, massive Brooklyn Bridge Park and Anchorage and Cadman Plaza parks. The shopping, dining and services of Henry Street are just a block east, and transportation is effortless with 2/3, A/C, F, R and 4/5 trains
