Description

This magnificent property is one of the Crown Jewels of Cobble Hill. Standing proud on one of the most coveted blocks in Brooklyn, built 25’ wide on an extra deep lot with an extension on the first two floors, the sheer scale will amaze. Tucked away on famed Strong Place, a charming and quiet Mews within a few blocks to every amenity on Court and Smith Streets including grocery stores, health clubs, parks, restaurants, daycare and schools. This masterpiece has been restored from top-to-bottom with an elegance and attention to detail on every floor. Come home every day to a stunning brick Federal Style townhouse with gracious proportions, every luxury imaginable, a fully landscaped yard, central heating and cooling, 5 stately bedrooms, 3 full baths, 3 powder rooms, radiant heated floors in the kitchen and full baths, and a fully finished cellar perfect for a playroom or media room. Original and restored historic details are the perfect backdrop to the finest quality modern upgrades, offering the perfect study of old school elegance and modern luxury. The sunny garden level has been masterfully transformed into a casual everyday living space complete with one of the largest designer kitchens you have ever seen in a townhouse, and conveniently located off the garden for easily accessible outdoor entertaining. Transition from inside to outside through expansive glass doors that bring in light all day long. Indulge your chef skills in a kitchen complete with a suite of classic walnut custom cabinetry that has been designed with storage and practicality in mind. Pantries, cabinets, drawers and loads of counter space at your fingertips have been strategically designed around Viking and Sub Zero appliances and ample counterspace. The extension on this floor allows enough space for a large dining area in addition to a spacious living room, powder room, mudroom and convenient laundry room with oversized vented washer and dryer. Head upstairs to the sophisticated parlor floor and prepare to be amazed. Loft-like in scale with 11’ ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows in front and large bay windows in the back, this elevated space also includes an extension allowing for a discrete wet-bar with its own fridge, sink, and storage. Historic details abound lending a warmth to this dramatic floor, including crown moldings, walnut floors, ceiling medallions, plantation shutters, and re-built modern marble mantles, lending the space a stylish sophistication. A moody powder room is the perfect stop for guests. Take the wide and flowing staircase, with its perfectly restored mahogany newel posts and banisters up to the bedroom floors where you can comfortably reside at the end of a long day. An oversized master bedroom with a windowed dressing room, and trophy master bathroom await. Perfectly appointed with stunning touches throughout including grass-cloth walls, remarkable chandeliers and window treatments in the bedroom, and a master bathroom with soothing travertine floors and walls, a deep soaking tub, large glass-enclosed walk-in shower, double vanity and separate toilet room. The windowed dressing room has been customized throughout with hanging space, drawers and endless shoe storage and shelving. On the same floor is an additional ensuite bedroom perfect for guests and includes a light-filled bathroom complete with marble floors and walls and a glass-enclosed shower. The top floor has two equally oversized bedrooms, each with their own customized walk-in closets and incredible treetop views and light. A third bedroom makes the perfect office/nanny room/guest room. All three bedrooms share a large luminous bathroom with double vanity, great storage and a tub/shower combination classically designed with a modern twist from white subway tile. There is even an additional w/d hookup should you desire a 2nd set on the top floor. The elegant staircase takes you gracefully and easily to the roof where a buyer could add a roofdeck with partial harbor views and amazing privacy should you desire. If this isn’t enough, the cellar has been excavated and completely finished, offering ample ceiling height and a whole extra floor for a media room, playroom and storage. The original arches have been restored and add an architectural element to a space that often goes unnoticed. In this home you will really enjoy the cellar as an extra floor of hang-out space, including a charming powder room. As you can imagine, every mechanical element of this home has been upgraded. Windows, roof, façade, heating, cooling, electric and plumbing are all of the finest quality and have been perfectly maintained. An extra-large backyard with rustic charm has been hardscaped with blue-stone pavers for easy use and maintenance, and also includes spacious perimeter planters with irrigation to allow for year-round planting possibilities and a constant green view from your rear windows. This is a rare offering and will be shown by private appointment only.
