~Understated Elegance~

NEW TO MARKET: Quintessential Brooklyn brownstone located on a beautiful tree-lined street in the highly sort after and recently Landmarked area of Prospect Heights. This circa 1901 brownstone sits on a 17' x 131' lot, sprawling near 3100 SF over four floors and currently configured as three separate residences, the garden level and top floor apartments offer full floor 1 BR layouts, and the parlor & middle level are duplexed creating the ideal owners residence. With a versatile layout this could either be kept as is or easily reconfigured as a single family home.

A recent extensive restoration truly sets this home apart. Whilst being updated to include many modern day amenities, the elegance, grace, and charm have been meticulously preserved, as you enter the parlor level lobby, spectacular craftsman details immediately catch the eye, the hand carved door motifs and mirror surround really must be seen to be appreciated.

Follow the spiral stairs to the upper level with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, of which the master suite is nothing short of breathtaking, this exquisitely designed bathroom has a cast-iron claw foot tub, glass waterfall inspired sink, and crystal chandelier. This residence also has 4 wood-burning fireplaces that have been stripped & restored to their original detail, and slimline A/C units on both levels.

The garden level apartment could either be left as a second rental unit or easily combined to triplex with the owners residence. The same high quality renovation continues throughout this 1BR apartment and the enormous bathroom features a large soaking Jacuzzi tub that is the perfect place to relax and unwind. However, if you prefer to be outdoors the backyard and garden itself are even more relaxing, this tranquil garden provides an ideal spot to sit and let the days pass by, it also functions as the ultimate entertaining area and is the perfect spot for that 4th of July BBQ.

On the top floor you have the option of further expanding the primary residence or reaping the rewards of a great 1BR rental unit.
