Property Description

Welcome to 5 Hampton Place, an elegant, newly-renovated two-family brick and brownstone townhouse located in the Crown Heights North Historic District on one of the most picturesque and well-preserved blocks in Brooklyn. This lovingly restored and modernized 18' x 46' home, on an 85' deep lot features approximately 3,396 square feet over four levels. The gracious 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath owners unit highlights 5-inch-wide hardwood oak flooring throughout, tall double-paned windows, a two-zoned HVAC system and a private garden. A well laid out studio apartment directly accessible from the street provides the flexibility for rental income or additional space for the owner.

Entering the parlor level through the charming foyer leads to an impressive open living and dining area creating a perfect space for entertaining. The stylish chef's kitchen is anchored by an expansive quartzite island leading to a lovely banquette with lower storage overlooking the terrace and garden. Custom cabinetry adorned with Rejuvenation hardware in brushed brass and an extraordinary floor-to-ceiling pantry wall provides an abundance of storage. Fully equipped with appliances by Sub Zero, Bosch, and GE Monogram, including a six-burner gas cooktop, dual-ovens and paneled Bosch dishwasher. The quartzite countertops are complemented with a unique backsplash design connecting quartzite and Portola-Roman Clay in a Mirror finish. The terrace is directly accessed off the kitchen with stairs leading down to the serene garden. The parlor is serviced by a discrete powder room tucked neatly underneath the main stair.

The upper floor features a hallway skylight and three bedrooms including a sumptuous king-sized primary suite with an oversized walk-in closet and a primary bathroom showcasing Nero Marquina stone floor tiles laid in a herringbone pattern complemented by White-Carrara stone wall tiles. The custom glass paneled shower is paired with an in-wall niche and matt-black fixtures by Kohler. The secondary bathroom features a delightful skylight, Mosaic Bianco-Carrara hexagon stone floor tile and Matt-White subway wall tiles. The bathroom is completed with a Swiss Madison porcelain vanity, a Kohler cast iron bathtub and Kohler fixtures.

The garden level offers an additional bedroom suite with a large walk-in closet and a windowed full bathroom featuring White-Carrara stone floor and wall tiles. The bedroom offers direct access to the private garden. The cellar level, one flight down, provides an open canvas affording the flexibility for multiple uses; a media room, gym, play area or home office.

Nestled within the urban oasis of Crown Heights, The Crown Heights North Historic District has been described as "among Brooklyn's most architecturally distinguished areas" and a "showcase for the work of architects who played an important role in Brooklyn's historical development." Residents will enjoy a plethora of neighborhood amenities - outstanding local shops, cafes and bars, locally owned retailers and just moments away from Brower Park and the Brooklyn Children's Museum. Conveniently located to mass transit with easy access to multiple train lines and the LIRR. A location that provides a unique feast of visual history, culture and charm is a gem that only Brooklyn is known for.

Crown Heights | Brooklyn

Quick Profile

Originally known as Crown Hill by the Lenape Indians that lived there, Crown Heights has evolved into a diverse neighborhood, occupied primarily by Hasidic Jews and one of the largest Caribbean populations to be found anywhere outside of the West Indies. 

Head over to Nostrand Avenue, one of the main West Indian commercial areas in the neighborhood, which is lined with stores that have been in those exact same places for generations, providing their goods and services to area residents. Kingston Avenue has similar commercial activities that support the Jewish community, and Franklin Avenue shows the most signs of change and gentrification, with an ever-expanding mix of yoga studios, coffee shops, and organic grocery stores that serve the influx of young professionals. No matter which of these areas you visit, you will find an interesting mix of businesses that you wouldn’t normally picture as existing side-by-side. It is all part of the cultural diversity of Crown Heights.

The neighborhood is bisected, from east to west, by Eastern Parkway, which is a beautiful, 3-mile-long boulevard lined with mature trees. This leafy oasis was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, famed designer of Central Park, the Biltmore Estate in North Carolina, and the U. S. Capitol in Washington, D. C.

You will find a mix of low-rise apartment buildings, large middle-class elevator buildings, brownstones, and some luxury buildings. Century-old architecture stands next to modern residential developments in a visually interesting mix of styles, much as the diversity of the residents exists. People who would not normally meet and mix are forging new pathways to cultural understanding by working, living, and playing together in the same neighborhood.
