291 Van Buren St was 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.

The townhouse is a two-family Brownstone and features 5 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, 1 powder room, a large parlor deck, and an expansive backyard garden. From White Oak 7-inch floors to thoughtfully designed molding and exposed brick, attention to detail can be found throughout this well-appointed
... home.

As you enter the owner's three-bedroom duplex, you are greeted by a mosaic-tiled foyer and an original glass door. Stepping into a 40-foot parlor, you realize the breadth of space as the 10.5-foot ceilings let the light radiate throughout the open floor plan. To the left, a formal living room area with a wood-burning fireplace offers a great space for entertaining. To the right, a large dining area and thoughtfully designed powder room. In the back, your kitchen features a three-seat island, custom cabinetry, and casement windows over the farm sink looking out to the backyard. With a full complement of appliances including Viking refrigerator, Wolf six-burner stove, wine refrigerator, and microwave drawer, this kitchen is a chef's dream.

Upstairs you find three bedrooms and two full baths. The elegant master bedroom faces the serene backyard garden and features three windows and a dual closet. The master bath is adorned with marble tiled floors, a tasteful double vanity, and a glass-enclosed rain shower. As you head down the hall, you pass the complementary second bathroom adjacent to two comfortable bedrooms.

The private basement is finished with textured tile floors and can easily be transformed into a playroom, home office or artist studio. The separate garden floor two-bedroom, two-bathroom unit can serve as an income-producing property or in-law apartment.

This masterfully reimagined townhouse is located on a beautiful, tree-lined block in the heart of Bedford-Stuyvesant. You are moments away from great establishments such as Santa Panza, The Wilky, L'Antagoniste, Saraghina's, and Peaches as well as a beautiful new park, Jesse Owens playground that features an outdoor pool, basketball or tennis courts. Nearby public transportation includes the J trains or the B38 at Dekalb or Lafayette. Additionally, as you may know, the acclaimed Coop School is now on Marcus Garvey and Gates.
