Description

An exceptional 4-story classic for the discerning buyer — restored with style, sophistication and relentless attention to detail, adding in all the comforts of modern living that make this “home”.


South-facing for maximum light, this grand sandstone has it all from central air conditioning to a lusciously landscaped garden. The 2-family home is configured as a triplex over a garden rental which allows for luxury living with rental income — all on one of the most beautiful blocks in Stuyvesant Heights.
As you approach this Romanesque/Renaissance Revival beauty — designed by Isaac D. Reynolds & Son in 1891 — observe that every exterior detail is intact and in great shape. The wrought iron fencing and rusticated double-arched windows are an elegant foil for the ornately-carved cornice and fluted columns of the door-surround.
Upon entering you’ll immediately notice that the extensive wainscoting, fretwork, mouldings and fireplace mantels have all been meticulously refinished to emit a pale-oak glow. Somehow this lends a modern tone to the Victorian character. The pale oak floors, while original, reflect this contemporary tone as well.
In the front parlor there is a very special mantelpiece with an unusual scrolled palm leaf design, while the mantel in the rear parlor features a mustachioed gentleman who'll oversee your family gatherings. The kitchen has been classically designed with white shaker-style cabinets and marble countertops — in 5 years you will be just as happy in your kitchen as you are now. The appliances are by Fisher & Paykel, Miele and Bertazzoni.
Upstairs you’ll find the master suite which can be used as 2 separate bedrooms, 2 more fireplace mantels, and a particularly charming wainscotted bath with claw-foot tub. The pass-through area sinks are fully original with built-in cabinetry, marble sinks, beveled glass mirrors and tiger oak details.
At the top level there are 3 more bedrooms, 2 more fireplaces and a classic marble and tile bath which perfectly straddles traditional and contemporary styling.
This home was lovingly and sensitively restored to a level of understated but unmistakable elegance by an owner with exemplary taste. We can't wait to show you this very special, very unique home.
607 Jefferson is a short walk down lovely Stuyvesant Avenue to the express A/C trains Utica Avenue stop. Enjoy nearby eateries such as Saraghina, Mama Fox, George Andre, Skal Brooklyn, L’Antagoniste; see world-class jazz at Bar LunAtico, enjoy cocktails at Casablana and grocery shop at Halsey Traders.
