Originally constructed in 1899, this newly renovated home is the perfect combination of high-end finishes, modern technology, and impeccable details, an honorable salute to its past.

This townhouse is a 19-foot-wide, four-story, two family Brownstone. The house features 6 bedrooms, 5 full bathrooms, 1 powder room, a large parlor deck, and expansive backyard garden. From the American Walnut floors to original woodwork, attention to detail can be found throughout this well-appointed home.

As you enter
... the owner's 4 bed 4.5 bath triplex, you are greeted by a mosaic tiled foyer and an oversized half-glass entry door. Stepping into a parlor floor, you realize the breadth of space as the 10-foot ceilings let the light radiate throughout the space. The living/dining area features a wood-burning fireplace. The kitchen features custom cabinetry and Caesarstone countertops as well as a farmhouse sink and a full complement of appliances including Viking refrigerator, Wolf six-burner stove, and microwave drawer. This eat-in kitchen is a chef's dream.

Upstairs you find four bedrooms and four full baths. The elegant master bedroom faces the serene backyard gardens and features three windows, a reading nook and large closet space. The five-fixture master bath is adorned with marble tiled floors, a tasteful double vanity, a glass-enclosed rain shower, and a deep-soakng tub. Down the hall, is another bedroom and classic second bathroom. On the third floor there are two large bedrooms each with a bright, skylit bathroom.

The private basement can be accessed through an interior staircase and is finished with tile floors. It can easily be transformed into a playroom, media den or artist studio. The separate garden floor two-bedroom unit can serve as an income-producing property or in-law apartment.

This masterfully reimagined townhouse is located in the heart of Bedford-Stuyvesant. You are moments away from great establishments such as Saraghina's, Peaches, and Simply Tommy as well as Von King Park. Nearby public transportation includes the J train or the Dekalb B38.
