This unique Brooklyn brownstone offers the best of the borough; vintage charm, modern amenities, and flexible living. Currently configured as a five story, three family home, this property has great bones and has received an extensive, multi-layered restoration.

The three bedroom, two and a half bath owners' triplex is a beautiful mix of classic brownstone interior and global contemporary design. A high stoop entry leads to a traditional parlor floor with restored woodwork, wood burning fireplace with marble mantel, and old world pocket doors. The kitchen, with custom bamboo cabinetry and a bi-fold glass wall system to the dining patio, is the heart of this home and generously outfitted for the home chef and carefree entertaining.

The garden level holds the sleeping quarters; a primary bedroom suite and two smaller bedrooms with shared bath. The primary bed's en suite bath is recently built with double vanity, soaking tub, separate shower and luxury fixtures. A glass bi-fold door system, similar to that found in the upstairs kitchen, leads directly from this large bedroom suite to a lounging patio and the private back yard. The two smaller beds, at the front of the home, are discreetly and smartly situated for sleep and play. These equally sized rooms, with restored pine floors and rough cut beams, share a common hallway and large walk-in closet. A secondary entrance to this level, under the stoop, provides easy gear/stroller access and underfoot radiant heat to warm those winter boots.

The basement has been fully renovated with eight foot ceilings (solid foundation here with brand new load-bearing beam). Included on this lowest level is a polished media room with radiant floor heating, separate laundry with an additional half bath, and a large room historically used as owner's office and wine/seasonal storage.

Above the owner's triplex is a fully renovated two bedroom floor-through apartment. This unit is currently vacant and can be leveraged for additional income ($3500~/month) or incorporated into the current owner's triplex to create a four story home. This apartment is very charming with hardwood floors, subway tiled bathroom, open modern kitchen, and an in-unit washer/dryer.

The top floor is currently occupied by a rent controlled tenant. This apartment is in clean but original condition with the exception of its bathroom, which has received a full renovation. Interested buyers should refer to state guidelines as provided by DHCR. The asking price on this three family home reflects a thoughtfully assessed value based on the RC unit.

This large property provides its new owners with an elegant turnkey home with potential for income and growth in one of Brooklyn's most desirable neighborhoods. Enjoy a vibrant community with some of Brooklyn's best restaurants, parks, and retail shops. Incredibly low real estate taxes and additional FAR of 850~ square feet complete this package. Please contact selling agents directly to arrange a private showing.
