Description

This unique, spacious and light-filled home needs to be seen in person to be believed. Renovated from top to bottom with the highest quality finishes throughout, it is the perfect opportunity to move to pastoral Windsor Terrace and enjoy an upper duplex with amazing light, 3 bedrooms, 2.5 renovated bathrooms, central AC, all new mechanicals, a designer kitchen, all on an extra-deep lot with an incredible garden. The garden level offers a high-income producing one-bedroom rental for help with your monthly expenses, or keep it for yourself and enjoy an extra bedroom and entertaining space. At over 2400 SF on three levels, there is flexibility and space to spare with no work required.Situated on a scenic block overlooking the trees and greenery of Greenwood from every window in front, and a huge backyard in the back, you will experience privacy and quiet rarely for sale in Brooklyn. Leave your shades open and let the sun shine in all day long! A mid-century modern design aesthetic at every turn provides the perfect backdrop for whatever taste in interior design suits your fancy. White oak floors, a blackened steel and wood staircase, casement windows, and a clean and spacious kitchen with a curtain wall of glass that flows to the oversized garden are the ideal. Entertain all on one floor, including a powder room, and then head outside to a spacious deck for the perfect indoor/outdoor life. A stunning Italian-style kitchen has been imagined in white lacquer and fumed oak cabinetry, white Quartz countertops, a suite of Bosch appliances including TWO wall ovens and a five-burner vented cooktop, and loads of custom cabinetry with storage for every kitchen appliance and utensil. Head upstairs to unexpectedly high ceilings, three sizable bedrooms, including a stunning master suite with a large bathroom outfitted with a double vanity, great storage, a large walk-in glass enclosed shower, and the perfect combination of oversized gray tiled floors and handmade subway-tiled walls. The secondary bath will charm with its black penny-tiled floors and oversized white subway-tiled walls. Enjoy a cohesive design throughout this home that includes soothing and stylish black, gray and white materials interspersed with the warmth of light natural woods and design-within-reach lighting. Even the rental is designed as an extension of the upper duplex, allowing you to live on all three floors with no disruption of the aesthetic. Should you choose to rent the garden level, expect no less than $3,000/month without even sharing your garden.Additional features include super low taxes of only $281/month, a full-size vented washer and dryer in both units, a multi-zoned sustainable heating and cooling system, a set-back front yard for privacy, oversized solid doors, bronze hardware, and great closets and storage throughout.This quiet and small-town like neighborhood is easily accessible to Manhattan via the F/B and Q trains, in addition to the G train to Queens and other parts of Brooklyn. Enjoy the serenity of Prospect Park and Greenwood, in addition to the District 15 schools. Exciting restaurants, bars, shops and amenities in every direction.
