Beautiful single-family townhouse in the heart of the sought-after neighborhood of Cobble Hill. Set on a tranquil, tree-lined street, 269 Warren Street is a wonderful example of a tastefully restored 19th-century home. Cherished by the same family for close to 20 years and because of its beauty featured in film, television, and documentary productions.
With 3,678 square feet of interior living space, plus a full cellar and a beautiful mature private 1,040 square foot rear garden, there is plenty of space to call home.
Lovely garden frontage with original ironwork fencing and a rarely seen garden gas lamp. Enter through the restored double doors at the top of the stoop, to the open parlor floor with 11' ceilings, decorative restored ceiling moldings, original floors, and a sweeping mahogany staircase. The front grand parlor room features the original pier mirror between the floor-to-ceiling windows and an original restored working fireplace with an Alabama marble surround. The rear parlor room has three large windows overlooking the mature lush garden and yet another marble fireplace surrounded by built-in bookcases.
At the garden level, with its own separate mudroom entryway under the stoop, you will find a separate dining room with a Connemara marble mantle working fireplace and original parquet and inlay wood floor. The kitchen has multiple built-in closets, all modern appliances (Viking stove, Miele dishwasher, Liebherr fridge/freezer), and a Carrara marble side counter with reclaimed wood floating shelves above, as well as a central wooden butcher block island. A half bathroom can also be found at this level. From the kitchen, you can enter out into the garden. Mature shrubs and plantings, two paved al fresco dining areas, and a winding pathway make this garden oasis very special. There is also a full cellar floor below the garden level, with tons of storage and room for a workout space.
The second-floor master wing features an oversized front bedroom facing the picturesque tree-lined street, with a sitting area, wood-burning Alabama marble surround fireplace, and a wall of built-in closets. The master bathroom has a large walk-in shower, double vanity with Carrara marble top, and porcelain tiled floor. On this floor is another garden-facing bedroom, that can also be used as a study, with a full bathroom and multiple closets.
On the top floor light floods in through the skylights above, onto the open rec room with a separate built-in study area and a full chalkboard wall for endless fun. The two spacious bedrooms on this floor, one looking out onto the garden and one onto treetops of Warren Street are of equal size with bright large windows, custom closets and are separated by a Jack and Jill bathroom with double vanity, bath, and shower overhead. The large, windowed laundry room with a utility sink can also be found on this floor.
Located equidistant between the many dining and shopping options of Court Street and Smith Street, with easy subway access, this is a coveted Cobble Hill location.
