Property Description for 271 State Street
A Modern Classic! This carefully-crafted, twenty-first century interpretation of the classic townhouse at 271 State Street--one of the original 14 Townhouses--sits perfectly poised at the crossroads of the coveted Brooklyn Heights and Boerum Hill neighborhoods. Designed by renowned architects Rogers/Marvel, this single family home has over 3700 square feet and combines an expansive, double-height entertaining space and open layout with gracious family quarters that includes five bedrooms and four full baths. With 9 foot south-facing windows, an enormous 20 foot high north-facing glass wall, AND an 8 foot wide skylight, the heart of this home is flooded with sunlight, dramatically highlighting the home’s custom-designed wood and steel staircase, oak plank floors, and slate-surrounded wood-burning fireplace. The Bulthaup kitchen is spacious and has Basaltina stone countertops, Bosch double wall ovens, a 5-burner cooktop and Subzero refrigerator. Other modern amenities include zoned CAC, internal intercom, California Closets, black-out blinds and a thoughtfully placed laundry room on a bedroom floor.
On the master floor, you will find a generously proportioned bedroom, and luxurious ensuite bath. The bath is outfitted a white Calacatta Vision marble soaking tub, a teak double sink vanity and recessed medicine cabinets.
Adjacent to the master bedroom there is a 5th bedroom, currently being used as an office with custom storage and shelving.
The top floor penthouse currently doubles as both an office and yoga studio: sliding glass doors lead to landscaped south and north facing terraces with views sweeping over the rooftops of Boerum Hill. The garden floor has its own separate bedroom and full bath, ready to welcome any houseguest.
Featuring both an irrigation and a lighting system, the back garden is graciously proportioned with Foras designed Cor-ten steel planters and blue stone pavers making it an idyllic spot for entertaining: enjoy cocktails and dinner parties under the twinkling stars at night. If that were not enough, the basement has it all: over 9’ ceilings, a home gym, recreation space and additional storage!
271 State is ideally located on one of the best blocks in Boerum Hill; it’s both peaceful and verdant but just minutes from Manhattan. Conveniently located near A/C/F/2/3 trains and the Brooklyn Bridge and close to Brooklyn Fare, Trader Joe's, four health clubs, the Atlantic Terminal, Barclays Center, BAM and all the wonderful shops and restaurants on Smith Street, Court Street and Atlantic Avenue. This home is truly for the savvy urbanite!
