Description:

Behind an immaculate and traditional brownstone faade lies a spectacularly renovated 2-family townhouse that will be loved by modern and traditional aficionados alike! Expanded in size just 3 years ago with the addition of a 2-story extension, and a new penthouse floor added to the top with cathedral ceilings and skylights, this 4-story home was reimagined with the utmost attention to detail. Sitting on an extra deep and rare 131 lot allows all floors to have excellent light, views, and privacy, and both its front and back yards are spacious, open, and manicured to perfection. Situated between Carlton and Vanderbilt avenues in prime Prospect Heights, you will also enjoy the vibrant and convivial Open Streets program, unrivaled dining, amenities, transportation and Prospect Park right outside your door. Use this home as a grand 5-bedroom, 4.5 bath one-family, or enjoy the income from a garden rental and still live large. Luxuriate in the warm herringbone oak floors throughout, modern baseboard reveals, central AC, high ceilings on every floor, skylights, new windows, designer lighting with dimmers, custom shades, custom closets, new roof, all new heating system, new brownstone faade and structural work, and a jaw-dropping sweeping staircase that allows the top floor skylights to bring light through all the floors. Enter up the dramatic stoop into a vestibule with modern Flemish tiles juxtaposed with exposed brick; the perfect entranceway to a triple parlor that takes your breath away. Boasting a stunning designer kitchen in the middle, a formal dining room in front, and a spacious and magical living room off the garden, everything is in the right place with an attention to detail rarely available on the market. You will never want to leave this floor, and nor will your guests. A wall of striking arched windows in the living room are the centerpiece of this swoon-worthy parlor floor, providing the perfect window to the oversized backyards that are unique to this one small block of special homes in Prospect Heights. The center kitchen will inspire and delight, featuring Snaidero custom wood and lacquer Italian cabinetry, a 9.5 long island wrapped in Blanco Negro marble with a waterfall edge, and includes not only extensive storage and room for 4 stools, but also a wine fridge and two Sub Zero refrigerator drawers. Opposite the island is a large honed granite countertop, an additional full wall of custom cabinetry, Sub Zero paneled French door fridge, a Wolf double oven and warming drawer, vented Wolf cooktop, and an extra deep sink with disposal. Cascading Dora glass clusters light the island and flood the kitchen with a warm and inviting glow. Handsome moldings complement the spacious formal dining room in the front, large enough to entertain a crowd and set back with over 20 of gardens from the street for intimate dining away from prying eyes. A powder room on this floor offers a whimsical combination of marble floors and Flavor Paper wallpaper. Head upstairs to a primary suite of massive proportions and practicality. Oversized windows flood the room with light all day, and dont miss the windowed dressing room that has been outfitted with custom millwork to accommodate even the largest wardrobe. An indulgent 5-fixture bathroom has been dressed in Porcenalosa marbleized honed tile with herringbone limestone mosaics and includes a freestanding tub, separate toilet room, oversized vanity with a double sink and an incredible double-sized glass-enclosed shower with a rainhead showerhead. An additional bedroom on this floor also enjoys its own ensuite bath complete with Anne Sacks Blue Celeste hexagon tiles and a glass enclosed shower. A full-sized vented washer and dryer completes the floor. The top penthouse floor accommodates two additional bedrooms and a full bath, and dont miss the vaulted ceilings and skylights. White penny tile juxtaposed with stacked gray modern tile is the absolute perfect marriage of modern and timeless. And of course, dont forget about the garden level. A spacious one-bedroom apartment enjoys exposed brick, a fashionable dark gray kitchen, and a stylish bathroom with barn-door hardware. The current owners have chosen to use this floor for their own guests and a home gym, but close one door and it becomes a great rental income or mother-in-law suite with a private entrance from the street. A clean and dry basement offers extra storage below the garden apartment and is accessible to the owners even if they do choose to rent the garden level. A vestibule with white-washed brick also allows the upper triplex owners to conveniently store bikes with easy street access. The oversized front and back gardens have both been thoughtfully designed to allow fantastic curb appeal in front, and great entertaining and play space in back. The possibilities for indoor/outdoor living are endless on this oversized lot and offer the perfect view both day and night. This house is quite simply the most perfect combination of fine design, high-quality construction, great indoor and outdoor space, amazing light, all in a location that cant be beat with every amenity you could ever crave in Brooklyn. And dont miss the B/Q at 7th Avenue, the 2/3 at Bergen St., and the C at Clinton/Washington for ease of getting around town.
