Property Description for 597 East 8th Street

This 4-bedroom, fully detached house with a huge rec room and 30 foot-wide backyard is truly special and stunningly beautiful! It was renovated from top to bottom less than five years ago and is in excellent condition - no need to do any work before you move in. The renovation was done by a boutique developer with an eye for detail who spared no expense on the infrastructure of the house. No half-measure mechanical updates here: the plumbing, electrical, heating and cooling systems were entirely replaced by highly reputable contractors. Nest thermostats power two brand-new high-efficiency furnaces with chillers that provide zoned central heating and cooling. The roof, windows and interior/exterior doors are all new. The house has been fully insulated to save money and energy. Thoroughly renovated houses of this quality rarely come on the market. The interior design features of the house are also exceptional: super-cool wallpapers, Schoolhouse Electric light fixtures, new rift and quarter-sawn oak flooring mixed with original antique floors, built-in shelving and closets, Caesarstone kitchen counters with waterfall edges and herringbone tile backsplash. The kitchen, dining room, and living room on the main floor form a large open space, perfect for family life or entertaining friends. The huge deck off the kitchen is ideal for grilling and outdoor dining. There is also a half bath and pantry on this floor. Upstairs are three bedrooms.The primary bedroom is a nice size with excellent closet space. The other two bedrooms are also large and exude charm. The bathroom has a double sink and a deep Duravit soaking tub. One more floor up is the attic space with the perfectly chosen wallpaper of golden swallows on the ceiling of the huge dormer. The fully finished rec room in the basement is perfect for watching TV, a guest room, home gym, and much more. There is another full bath on this level. The outdoor spaces are exceptional. The open front porch invites afternoon lounging on the swing. The enormous backyard has forever lawn and cedar fencing. It’s an excellent play area and offers room for urban farming too! Plants in the back and side yards are refreshed daily by the automatic irrigation system. The house has easy access to many amenities in Kensington and Ditmas. Prospect Park and the Tennis Center are a short bike ride away. The F/B/Q trains are a few blocks away.
