This ultra spacious Brooklyn brownstone offers the perfect mix of historic detail, open loft like space, modern amenities, and best of all, flexible living. Originally configured as a four story, two family home, yet currently being used as a three family, this property has great bones and fantastic income potential. Spanning over 3,300 square feet with an additional 828 square feet available in the basement, the possibilities here are endless!
The two bedroom, two bath owners' duplex is filled with beautiful original woodwork, a pier mirror, 10' ceilings and two decorative fireplaces. A stately stoop leads to a traditional parlor floor where the kitchen with its custom wood cabinetry anchors a light filled dining room in the front and a wide spacious living room in the rear. Two oversized floor to ceiling glass doors provide extra light and open up to a wonderful terrace with access to the lush extra-deep 48' garden filled with bamboo and mature trees creating a sense of magic and privacy.
Downstairs, on the garden level, are two spacious bedrooms and two bathrooms. The primary bedroom suite has direct access to the garden and is quiet, sunny and bright. The second bedroom, at the front of the home, offers privacy with its very own marble clad en-suite bath. A secondary entrance to this level, under the stoop, provides easy gear/stroller access and a mudroom area.
Upstairs are two floor thru apartments that easily work together to create an airy upper duplex, or function as two individual floor thru apartments, perfect for rental income, guests or a home office. Finally the house could easily be converted to a single family should one desire or two extra large duplexes, both with outdoor space. The ceiling height is stunningly high throughout the house lending a loft like feel to the home.
