This newly renovated pre-war home offers a thoughtful combination of high-end finishes and original details, a seamless marriage of past and present.

The single-family brick is approximately 2200 square feet and features 3 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, 1 powder room and expansive backyard garden. From hardwood floors to beautifully finished decorative fireplaces and exposed brick, attention to detail can be found throughout this well-appointed home.

As you enter the home, you are greeted by an open concept
... layout. Stepping into a 45-foot parlor, you realize the breadth of space as the tall ceilings let the light radiate throughout the open floor plan. To the right, a formal living room area with a decorative fireplace offers a great space for entertaining. To the left, a large eat-in kitchen area and thoughtfully designed powder room. In the back, your kitchen features a three-seat island, decorative fireplace, custom cabinetry, and a large casement window looking out to the backyard. With deep sink and a full complement of stainless steel appliances and pantry, this kitchen offers more than function it is a gathering space to break bread.

Upstairs you find two bedrooms and two full baths. The elegant master bedroom faces the serene tree-lined street and features two windows and a double 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 the comfortable second bedroom.

The private garden suite can be accessed through an interior staircase or the front of the house. It is perfect for a guest or inlaw suite, currently set up as a studio space with full bathroom and great storage. Alternatively, this level can become the master suite thus offering separation from the bedrooms upstairs.

And finally the dug-out basement is finished with a concrete floor and is currently set up as a gym space; however, it can easily be transformed into a playroom, home office or artist studio.

This masterfully reimagined townhouse is located on a beautiful, tree-lined block in the heart of Crown Heights. You are moments away from great establishments such as Mayfield, Chavel's, and Glady's, as well as Prospect Park and the Brooklyn Museum. Nearby public transportation includes the 2/3, 4/5 & A/C trains, and JFK is a short 20min drive.
