Description

This property is no longer available to rent or buy. This description is from September 18, 2015
Your search for a renovated Brooklyn Heights townhouse is over. 281 Henry Street is an absolutely stunning five-story, six-bedroom brownstone in the heart of the Heights. Every inch has been meticulously upgraded and designed to create a spacious and comfortable 5,000sf family home with dramatic living and entertaining spaces. Enter through the marble tiled vestibule where you can see all the way through the gracious and grand foyer to the incredible rooms beyond. A flexible center parlor room functions as a formal dining room, a reception room, or a gallery, graced by the stunning center staircase that rises to the private rooms above. The 25 foot deep living room accommodates multiple seating areas and has stunning bay windows with views of and access to the garden. A restored marble mantel anchors the room, and the original herringbone floors have been refinished to give the parlor a crisp, modern feeling. The brand new custom designed Bilotta kitchen occupies the front of the parlor floor, and includes a dining area framed by a huge window. The kitchen boasts floor to ceiling white lacquer cabinetry, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, two additional freezer drawers, a Miele dishwasher and a professional Viking range with six burners and grill. The top three floors of the house all have new 5-inch wide white oak floors, all new custom built closets, and all new windows. Because the staircase is in the center of the home, the living room and each of the bedrooms and dens enjoy the full width of the building. On the third floor there is an impressive office with extensive storage, a full bathroom and a den. Both of these rooms could be easily converted into bedrooms. The fourth floor houses a master bedroom, a stunning new sky-lit bathroom and a den. On the fifth floor there is another bedroom with an all-new en-suite bathroom, and an incredible family room. There is a brand new laundry room on this floor with new full-size washer and dryer, a sink and refrigerator. Currently configured as a single family home, there is a newly renovated garden level apartment perfect for guests, relatives or easily converted to a rental unit. The garden level has a private entrance, a bright new kitchen, updated bathroom, and a spacious bedroom with a door leading out to the garden. There is also a second laundry room with an abundance of built in storage. Lastly, the large cellar below has great ceiling height and a ton of extra storage.
