Enjoy the autonomy, privacy and scale of your own townhouse with a huge backyard, just in time for summer! Finally the quintessential rustic modern townhouse, at the crossroads of Boerum Hill and Cobble Hill, is ready for you to call home. Located just a half a block from the subways, Smith Street, Court Street, Atlantic Avenue, and every amenity you could ever imagine, this generous brick Federal-style home is the perfect blend of scale, creature comforts, convenience, historic detail, and wonderful light. Perfectly proportioned at 20’ wide 45’ deep on four floors, with a huge backyard and a full cellar for storage, this house lives currently as a 2-family with garden rental income, and an upper triplex with a deck and stairs to the garden. If you need more space, just open up the door and use all four floors for yourself and gain two extra bedrooms, a guest suite, or home offices and guest rooms downstairs. Head up the perfectly preserved stoop and enter a dramatic and light-filled double parlor floor with every historical detail intact. High ceilings, stunning plaster details, floor-to-ceiling windows, original marble mantles, and gleaming inlaid wood floors will ensconce you in the warmth of yesteryear, while the sizable and modern eat-in chef’s kitchen allows you to enjoy the luxuries of today. Designed and built for a cooking professional, there are endless custom cabinets for great storage, vast Umbrian stone countertops, a DCS professional vented range, French-Door fridge, Bosch dishwasher, and two glass doors that take you conveniently to your deck for convenient al fresco dining. The back parlor accommodates a large dining table and your large kitchen, so enjoy the front parlor for living and hanging out and experience the joy of entertaining guests comfortably in one large loft-like space. A magnificent garden acts as your backdrop and includes a grassy area and more formal beds for gardening. The upper two floors both offer sizable bedrooms and office space with phenomenal light, closets and storage space. Head upstairs on the handsome staircase complete with original mahogany newel posts and balustrades, to two additional floors, each with two oversized bedrooms and a smaller office area, and newly renovated spa-like windowed bathrooms. Five bedrooms in total not including the garden rental, and bathrooms that deserve your utmost attention. Gutted from top-to-bottom just under a year ago, both of these sunny and majestic bathrooms have been professionally designed with a suite of high-end fixtures, handmade Ann Sacks tiles, stones and marbles and are painted, as is the whole house, with Farrow & Ball paint. The 2nd floor master bath has been outfitted with a large custom-made double vanity, hex Carrara marble floor tiles, and an absolutely breathtaking Ming Green wall mosaic in the walk-in shower. The top floor bath enjoys a deep soaking inset tub with a wainscoted apron-front and Carrara marble tub deck, hand-honed gray subway tile, and a sculptural pedestal sink. Extra-large built-in linen closets in both baths allow you to find a place for everything. The one-bedroom garden rental is equally charming and includes a newly renovated French country farm-style kitchen with porcelain sink, a spacious living room in the front with honey-pine floors, and a quiet bedroom in the back. Garden access is easy for the tenant, but the choice of the owner. This wonderful home will be delivered vacant and requires no work whatsoever. All new Marvin windows, new washer and dryer, 2019 hot water heater and a gas boiler are some additional amenities.
