Nestled in one of the most charming blocks in Cobble Hill is 166 Amity, a 25’ wide townhouse of unparalleled elegance with a rare three exposures and an extra-deep, South-facing yard featuring a disappearing heated pool and hot tub. This 4-story home is a serene oasis with the light of a corner house but the quiet privacy of a mid-block residence. Meticulously preserved original details meet state-of-the-art technology for the perfect balance of old and new.

The chef’s kitchen on the garden level is the heart of the home. Equipped with an antique Garland stove, custom teak wood island, Energy Star Appliances, reclaimed wood pantry, and a working fireplace, this kitchen is ready for festivities and entertaining. Adjacent is a media room with pocket door and custom-tiled powder room, as well as an expansive breakfast sun room overlooking one of the most spectacular backyards in Brownstone Brooklyn. A lush garden and blue stone patio make up a 1,440 SF backyard shaded by a heritage Wisteria canopy. With one turn of a key, the patio opens to reveal the smartphone-controlled, eight-person hot tub and an adjustable-depth, heated lap pool with resistance jet.

The parlor floor is a luminous open space, ideal for entertaining. With sunlight streaming in from two North-facing and four West-facing windows, this expansive floor features two working fireplaces (one wood, one gas), and original pocket doors for optional separation of living and dining area. Adjacent to the dining room is an artisan-crafted cocktail room with a reclaimed French teak wet bar and a wall of Southern windows overlooking the backyard. A powder room with reclaimed Vermont barn wood and a formal entry way round out the parlor floor. The third floor master suite is every homeowner’s dream, with an elegant black marble fireplace, two Northern exposures and a large cedar walk-in closet. The luxurious master bathroom has an oversized waterworks tub beside a gas fireplace, as well as a steam shower, Italian lava tilework floors, a second washer/dryer and floor-to-ceiling French doors that lead to an expansive 300 SF terrace. A nursery or home office room completes the floor. The light and airy fourth floor feels like a tree-top getaway with two more bedrooms, a full bath with custom tiles, and a huge loft-like second living/work/sleeping space with original wood beams and moldings, 11.5’ ceilings, and skylight with kitchenette and large closets.

Other notable features of this special home include plentiful basement storage, a geothermal well, radiant heat floors, central air conditioning, double glazed windows, a rooftop solar panel system, Smart Home system, Lead abatement certificate and custom artisan construction throughout. Conveniently located on a beautiful tree-lined block near the F and G trains as well as the charming Court St. shops, this home provides a truly unique opportunity to own a meticulously crafted masterpiece of Brooklyn history. This once-in-a-lifetime home is not to be missed!
