Abundant light and airiness welcome you home in this 1,675-square-foot home's expansive upper level. In the spacious living/dining room, chic wide-plank hardwood paves the floors and exposed brick adds warmth. Entertainers and cooks will love the flexibility and
... convenience of the spacious open kitchen where glass-front cabinetry, stone counters, a moveable center island and stainless steel appliances provide effortless ease. A powder room and home office line the hallway of the sprawling 65-foot-long upper floor, and at the rear, you'll find a large and tranquil bedroom beautifully outfitted with a large closet and a wall of custom floor-to-ceiling built-ins. Enjoy direct access to the spacious rear yard and a well-appointed marble full bathroom just next door.
Downstairs, a sprawling tiled bedroom suite provides more delightful backyard views, a private full bath, an enormous walk-in closet and convenient in-unit washer-dryer. Just outside, covered in pavers and bordered by fencing and flower beds, the lovely private yard delivers an ideal space for outdoor lounging and entertaining. Either level of this roomy home could easily accommodate a third oversized bedroom without sacrificing space. And, tax abatement in effect until 2030 makes this stunning, expansive home an especially attractive opportunity in the heart of residential Brooklyn.
