The most gracious home in Brooklyns best location. Built in 1899 and completely renovated within the last five years, this stunning Greek revival brownstone melds scale with detail, tradition with modern craftsmanship, style with comfortable living. The home is an extremely rare 26-feet wide and spans five floors, plus a full-height cellar. At nearly 8,000 interior square feet, it is one of the largest homes in brownstone Brooklyn. But unlike most townhouses, 374 Pacific is awash in natural light: it flows through the 10-foot-high windows of the front facade, a 3-story atrium cut through the center of the house, and a full wall of kitchen windows and doors facing south over the expansive private garden. There is nothing else like it. Through the entry foyer, hang your coat and proceed into the front parlor, at once grand and serene, with soaring 12-foot ceilings, working wood burning fireplace, European beech bookcases and herringbone oak floors. Connecting the front parlor with the kitchen is the gathering place and heart of the first floor: a large dining area perfect for dinner, homework, late night cards, or a bottle of wine shared with friends.For the kitchen, Brooklyn design firm Workstead created cabinetry of subtly gorgeous design, which anchors the space and provides copious storage. From the double glass doors in the kitchen, stairs lead to the oversized rear yard, replete with hedges, flowers and mature shade trees. One floor up, youll find the over 1400-square-foot master bedroom suite with its magnificent 22-foot-long bathroom with double sinks and glass shower stall, culminating in a garden view from the claw-foot tub. The master suite includes an expansive bedroom complete with seating area and wood-burning fireplace, walk-in closet, a study, den, and light-filled landing below the atrium. The third and fourth floors, encompassing nearly 2400 square feet, offer wonderful family space: a 260-foot south-facing terrace, family room with working fireplace, four bathrooms, three full baths, and a bright and spacious laundry room. 374 Pacific was designed as an owners quadraplex with a separate garden floor apartment. At 1430 square-feet, this gorgeous garden-level, 2-bed, 2-bath space makes for an exceptional guest suite or high-income-generating rental. Or it could easily be incorporated into the main house. Located on the most sought-after block in Boerum Hill, 374 Pacific has all of the amenities of Brooklyn living moments away: BAM, the new Whole Foods on Ashland Place, Barclays Center, endless dining and shopping options on Smith and Court Streets and Atlantic Avenue, plus a wide range of transportation options within quick walking distance: the B/D, N/Q/R, 2/3, 4/5, and F/G trains are mere blocks away, offering short, easy access to Manhattan---be downtown in 15 minutes. Deeded parking is available.
