For the past six years the owners of this 20-foot wide four-story townhouse have meticulously restored and modernized a three-family home into a single-family brownstone beauty. Now, career opportunities call them away and their labor of love can be yours. The exterior, roof, skylights, windows, doors, electrical and plumbing systems are new. All 14 rooms (6 bedrooms, 3 1/2 bathrooms) feature zoned central heat and A/C. The kitchen, comprising half of the garden floor, has a dining area that can comfortably seat 10, 86 square feet of Corian counter space, dual-fuel convection range, and all of the other accoutrements of a high-end kitchen, not to mention Honey Maple Kraftmaid cabinetry, Australian cypress floors, and reverse osmosis water filtration system. This magnificent kitchen opens onto a lovely south-facing garden. The master bedroom suite comprises the entire top floor, including a walk-in closet that would make Carrie Bradshaw drool, soaking tub, heated Italian porcelain tile floor, in-ceiling surround sound theater system and many more stunning features. These improvements are balanced with many original details including pocket doors, parquet floors, tin ceilings, original plaster-work, wainscoting, and beveled mirrors. Located on a beautiful tree-lined street in the Crown Heights Historic District, 2 blocks from the subway, and walking distance to Grand Army Plaza as well as a bevy of newly opened restaurants and cafes, not that you would ever want to leave home.
