Property Description

Introducing 516 Lexington Avenue! This exceptional townhome is custom designed with an expansive layout and meticulously curated composition. A unique combination of tasteful fixtures and seamless blend of textures and styles, creates a picturesque redefinition of modern living. The nearly 4,800 sqft home boasts generously-sized proportions, an entertainment room, and three private outdoor spaces (including an oasis-like roof terrace!)

516 Lexington Avenue is located in Stuyvesant-Heights near Herbert Von King Park - one of the fastest growing neighborhoods in the borough. The property is comprised as an owner's triplex over a ground floor duplex. This six-bedroom, four-and-a-half bathroom home is the perfect long-term end-user opportunity.?

Upon entry to the parlor level of this extraordinary home, your attention is drawn to a vast light-filled space. The generously-sized living room provides an open concept layout grand enough to accommodate a limitless multitude of interior possibilities. A beautiful wall-mounted fireplace serves as a stunning feature piece.?

The heart of the home, the kitchen, is revealed by passing through the formal living and dining space. Overlooking the garden,?this massive space of exaggerated proportion was custom-designed to showcase the epitome of Brooklyn living. The kitchen is comprised of a tasteful mosaic tile that lays effortlessly across the kitchen floor. This provides a perfect base for the duality between the white and green cabinetry accented by an array of gold hardware. Resting seamlessly atop the lower cabinetry is an elegant grey & white quartzite countertop with flecks of brown that add a layer of texture and elevation. White cabinetry continues up the walls on both sides of the kitchen and is pulled to the forefront by a small-scaled herringbone tile. A triplet of transparent gold-finished light fixtures hang above the kitchen island to provide the perfect lighting. The kitchen is completed with a high end stainless-steel appliance package including a Fisher & Paykel double-door refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher, a 5-burner Frigidaire stovetop, and a stacked Frigidaire oven & microwave.

Progressing to the second floor of the home, you'll find 3 bedrooms - including the primary bedroom and en-suite bathroom. The primary bedroom continues the theme of generous proportion to accommodate a king or California king bed as well as a sizable, customizable walk-in closet. The en-suite bathroom expresses seductive elegance and taste with a dark emerald tile covering the walls providing an intentional disconnection from the white and grey-veined tile floor. A light, wooden double vanity is the perfect mediator, providing a natural element highlighted by gold fixtures. The massive shower comes equipped with two shower heads, including a rainfall, and a floating deep-soaking tub. Passing the second full bathroom and ascending to the third floor of this triplex, is the 4th bedroom that also doubles as a large entertainment space with a small bar wall and half-bathroom. This room also provides access to the massive private roof deck overlooking Lexington Avenue. With break-taking city views, this is the perfect space to entertain.

The lower two-bedroom duplex is a massive garden-level unit providing an opportune income generating apartment with high rent potential to aid and offset your monthlies.

516 Lexington is located near an array of neighborhood favorites including L'Antagoniste, Saraghina, Peaches, Warude, Mama Fox, Zaca Caf , Crocus, Brown butter, Brooklyn Kettle, Burly Coffe, Peace & Riot, BK FIT, and many more. Access to the public transportation includes the Kingston-Throop C & Kosciuszko Street J trains.

Brighton Beach | Brooklyn

Quick Profile

Once known by the nickname “Little Odessa,” due to the large number of Russians and eastern Europeans that settled in the area, Brighton Beach is a delightful seaside town that has a lot to offer its residents. Take a walk through Brighton Beach and find a plethora of traditional ethnic restaurants offering Russian cuisine, as well as food markets where you can find the specialized ingredients to prepare these dishes in your own kitchen.

Brighton Beach provides a much calmer beach and boardwalk experience than nearby Coney Island, and you will find more locals than tourists at the locally owned markets, shops, attractions, and even at the ritzy nightclubs. The area was originally developed as a refuge for the wealthy, so they could flee the heat of the NYC streets. There were luxury hotels and even a racetrack at one time.

Now the area is filled with large apartment buildings, many offering ocean or boardwalk views. The area was immortalized by Neil Simon in his play, Brighton Beach Memoirs. If you walk through the neighborhood, you might get the feeling that you have been transported back to the New York of the 1930s, as the appearance of the neighborhood hasn’t changed all that much in the intervening years.

Living at or near the beach, which is free to the public, offers many opportunities for both relaxation and entertainment. City dwellers are rediscovering this little oceanside gem and are moving into the area in search of affordable housing and a more laid back pace of living. Although it might seem very far from the chaos and noise of Manhattan, there are two subways that make for an easy commute, so it is possible to work in the City and live at the beach.
