Description

From Sid & Jess, With Love. A 10-year restoration of a classic Brooklyn Brownstone to its original glory: 452 43rd St. is a timeless, forever home. This perfectly proportioned 20 foot wide brownstone sits on a historic tree-lined, park block, just steps to the iconic stone entrance to Sunset Park. Alongside painstaking and artful restoration, Sid & Jess made thoughtful upgrades throughout for modern living. * 3,000+ SF over 3 stories plus a semi-finished basement on a 20 x 100 lot * Smartly configured as an 4-bedroom 2.5-bath owner’s duplex over a lucrative 1.5-bedroom, 1-bath garden rental * Original architectural details throughout: massive original front doors with carved pediment, working pocket doors, oak floors with mahogany borders, 4 fireplace mantles, intricately carved wood banisters, wainscoting, exquisite built-in cabinets, even hinges and knobs are original * An energy efficient home: solar panels which reduce the average electric bill by almost 90%, air-sealed triple pane skylight that opens for ventilation, and insulation throughout * Additional modern amenities include: mini-split air conditioners throughout, built in speakers, recessed lights throughout * Spacious chef’s kitchen with custom built-in banquette, breakfast bar, stainless steel appliances, vented rangehood. (The garden apartment also has a vented rangehood!) * Deck off the kitchen leads to an enormous landscaped backyard, sustainability designed with eco-friendly materials, salvaged slate stair treads, season-long flowering plants and south-facing dedicated edible garden * 2.5 blocks to the R train at 45th St, or 7.5 blocks to the express N or D train at 36th St for a 15 minute ride to Union Square. * Zoned for school district 15 This gorgeous home is at the crossroads of 3 of Brooklyn’s most vibrant and high growth neighborhoods: Sunset Park, Industry City and Greenwood Heights. A short stroll up the block lands you on 5th Ave, Sunset Park’s main commercial strip where you will find all your daily necessities, a full service supermarket, green grocers, and delicious eateries for all budgets. Enter Sunset Park which covers 24.5 acres of greenspace including a recreation center, playground, and a well-maintained enormous public pool. There’s no shortage of family fun at nearby Industry City, which has become a weekend hotspot. You can try all kinds of global cuisine in the food court, keep the family entertained with the arcade, indoor mini-golf, trampoline center, winter ice-skating or summer concerts in the courtyard, shop the artisanal boutiques, and admire local art. For a quiet respite, continue southwest to Bush Terminal Park, a cozy and serene spot with tide ponds, sports fields and views of the Manhattan skyline. The nearby ferry takes you to Manhattan and the Rockaways. Or go north to Greenwood Heights which is anchored by historic Greenwood Cemetery, one of America’s most beautiful, with 478 acres of rolling hills, reflective ponds and meandering paths. Already a cultural hotbed, plans currently underway will bring Sunset Park to a new level with a “Made in NY” campus that will serve as a hub for fashion, film and television production.
