Come home to the quaintest cobblestone block in Brooklyn Heights and enjoy the fruits of someone else's labor. This charming 20' wide 2-family brick home (easily used as a one family), was masterfully renovated from top-to-bottom by Mike Ingui of Baxt Ingui just a few years ago. Incorporating the charms of yesteryear with the comforts of today, this home is ready for you to unpack and move right in without lifting a finger, or a hammer. Currently configured as a 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath owner's triplex with a garden rental, just open one door and you will have a 6 bedroom, 3.5 bath 1-family home. No matter how you choose to use this gem, the owner has full enjoyment of three distinct and manicured private outdoor spaces including a fully landscaped garden and two large decks with skyline and treetop views. The home has been outfitted with central AC, updated electric, new windows, and all new mechanicals throughout. An unexpectedly large laundry room and oversized pantry, plus a clean and dry basement is easily accessible to the owners without bothering the tenant, and also gives the owner additional access to the garden. And oh what a garden it is! Landscaped perfectly with trees and perennials in perimeter beds, and a large space in the middle perfect for playing and entertaining. This yard has more privacy than most as it backs up against an aged stone wall, preventing neighbors from looking in and adding to the charm and privacy of its unique lot.
Head up the traditional stoop to a beautifully restored brick fa ade and enter into the perfect parlor floor where the living room, dining room and chef's kitchen allow you to entertain and live your daily life all on one floor. An extension was added during the recent renovation, expanding the depth of both the garden and parlor floors, and lending your main living space a loft-like feel with floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors that allow the perfect flow from the kitchen onto an oversized deck with stairs to the garden. A timeless and accessible rustic modern design sensibility has been employed throughout this wonderful property, offering the new owners a friendly home with everything in the right place. Extra-wide-plank pine floors, a wall of custom millwork, industrial-chic light fixtures and a real wood burning fireplace with a honed granite fireplace mantle set a relaxed yet stylish tone. An oversized chef's kitchen awaits and includes custom white wood and glass cabinetry and built-in sideboard, professional stainless appliances, and a dramatic Carrara marble eating and prepping island as the centerpiece. Don't miss the oversized 48" Sub Zero fridge, a 48" Wolf range, Bosch dishwasher, an extra-large and deep undermount sink with a garbage disposal, and a custom poured concrete kitchen floor complete with radiant heat. A discrete built-in desk area sits across from the island flanked by an oversized pantry for easy access and maximum storage. Seat at least four people at the oversized island and still enjoy a large area in the center of the parlor for a capacious dining table. The front of this floor offers a convenient vestibule and coat closet, and a large South-facing living room open to both the dining and kitchen areas, perfect for a gathering.
Head up the hand-crafted wood and steel staircase to the Primary floor where an oversized South-facing bedroom also offers a soothing windowed ensuite bathroom and a vast customized walk-in closet. Slate and subway tiled walls and floors, a custom wood and stone-topped vanity, a glass enclosed walk-in shower, heated towel warmer and radiant heated floors promise a comfortable and spa-like experience. A second bedroom on this floor opens to a large landscaped private deck and offers the versatility of an oversized barn-door enclosure allowing you to keep it open or closed, depending on whether it becomes a 4th bedroom, home office, or media room. The accompanying deck overlooks your private garden and offers a welcome respite. The third-floor landing is flooded with light through a roof skylight, welcoming you into two sizable bedrooms with tree-top and garden views, and each with a double closet. The bathroom on this floor has been whimsically transformed through the magic of wallpaper juxtaposed with timeless mosaic walls and floors, and also includes an extra deep tub. Head back downstairs to the garden level which offers a spacious 1-bed apartment rental, or incorprate this entire floor back into the house and have two extra bedrooms, offices, a nanny or a mother-in-law suite.
Throughout this warm and thoughtfully-designed home you will also find through-the-wall speakers, Central Heating and Cooling controlled via Nest Thermostats, and all lighting on dimmer switches. And the location could not be more perfect! One block away is the waterfront, the Ferry, spectacular Brooklyn Bridge Park, dog parks, playgrounds, and two convenient parking garages. Near the shops, dining, and amenities of Montague St., Atlantic Ave., and the 2/3/4/5/R trains at Borough Hall. This home is the complete package.
