Comfortably situated on the most desirable stretch of Ocean Parkway at the border of Gravesend and Sheepshead Bay and just moments from Brighton Beach lies this nearly 10,000 square foot Colonial styled home.
Articulately customized in the finest finishes of marble, granite, wood and lacquers, this massive residence is truly one of a kind. The home is touched with limestone accents and finished in two-tone stucco and an authentic green Terracotta style Spanish roof.
Immediately upon entry, one is greeted by a grand multi-level art-nouveau staircase accented by artisan wrought iron panels finished with newel posts. Above this, a substantial dome skylight allows natural light to permeate all three levels and a Vienna imported, hand-etched, crystal chandelier. The stunning tile inlay marble entry is flanked by living and dining spaces and encapsulated by a barrel ceiling supported by decorative, candlestick lit sconces and accented by traditional wainscoting. This room subtly leads to a kitchen equally apt for large families and entertaining.
The main kitchen, one of two within the home, offers two sets of each essential appliance. The equally practical and pleasing space is finished in Shaker style maple cabinets, finished in granite tops, follow the contour of the picture window at the sink. There is also a separate family room adjacent to the main kitchen, separated by the entry hallway.
Built to accommodate many, of the five bedrooms, most notable is the Master Suite. Unrivaled in size, the bedroom features a front facing French-doored balcony, and skylights on motorized shades. It has been finished in classical style with panel moldings and a cathedral ceiling. The integral 5-fixture master bath, which includes a bidet and elevated soaking tub, is clad entirely in marble with inlays and finishes of crotch mahogany.
Second to this is the library and bedroom on the third floor. Fitting as well adorned guest suite, the library is herringbone floored in rift and quarter sawn white oak inlaid with mahogany and practically appointed with built-in bookshelves.
The lower level is full-height and finished in radiant heated tile. Boasting a game room, a second full kitchen, more than ample storage and a commercial food-grade walk-in cooler, this area is truly an entire living floor.
The added practical conveniences within the home are innumerable, but include an elevator serving all floors, a walk-in commercial grade refrigerator, central vacuum system, interior and exterior radiant heating, and an outdoor kitchen.
