A gut-renovated 2-family townhouse boasting an array of high-end fixtures and finishes, 47 Herkimer is an exemplar of contemporary Brooklyn luxury and charm. Every inch of this one-of-a-kind house, from plumbing and electric to wood framing and insulation, has been thoughtfully restored.
Features of the home include a gorgeous brownstone façade, a brand new roof, a pair of new hot water tanks, extended WiFi, a video intercom system, integrated security cameras and alarm sensors, three skylights, a trio of restored marble fireplaces, high-end Pella windows, custom closets with built-in shelving, a finished cellar, a state-of-the-art HVAC system from Daikin, a fenced-in backyard with integrated sprinklers and a water/electric access point, a stunning owner’s triplex with 5-inch walnut flooring and a sky lit walnut staircase, and a garden level rental unit which can be used as an in-law suite.
The 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom owner’s triplex opens into an expansive, open-concept living room, dining room, and kitchen. The living area possesses a wood-burning fireplace, while the kitchen flows out onto a tiled porch and is equipped with custom inset cabinetry, Caesarstone Statuario Buvo countertops, a farmhouse sink, and a suite of fully-integrated high-end appliances from Wolf, Sub-Zero, and Miele. All three bedrooms lie on the second and third floors of the home. Each bedroom has private closet space and an attached en-suite bathroom with in-floor heating. Additionally, two of the bedrooms have fireplaces and two of the en-suites have towel warmers. Finishing the third floor is a sky lit office/study that can also be used as a playroom or additional living space. The cellar has storage closets, tiled flooring, and access to the backyard.
The garden level rental unit has new flooring, 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, a separate entrance, and an open-concept living, dining, and kitchen area. The kitchen features new appliances and sleek countertops, and the spacious bedroom has a walk-in closet, an additional reach-in closet, and easy access to the home’s full bathroom.
47 Herkimer is situated at the nexus of Bedford-Stuyvesant, Crown Heights, Clinton Hill, and Prospect Heights. It is just steps from a number of restaurants, cafes, bars, and shops, and is around the corner from the A/C/S subway lines and the LIRR.
