Description

PRICE IMPROVEMENT! Gracious and inviting from top to bottom, this handsome Neo-Grec brownstone has been lovingly renovated and restoredan effortless marriage of old-world elegance paired with chic, thoughtful design. Situated on coveted Monroe Street on the cusp of Clinton Hill and Bedford-Stuyvesant, this legal two-family home is currently configured as a single-family residence. Up the stoop and through the vestibule an airy, sun-splashed front parlor is graced with high ceilings and classic turn-of-the-century accouterments, including an opulent pier mirror. The entry foyer boasts original woodwork, a 12' high ceiling with original plaster crown molding, and designer light fixtures. A serene living room features one of six decorative fireplace mantels, plaster medallions, and an intricately detailed alcove flanked by closets with large wooden doors, and oversized windows overlooking the tranquil rear garden. The living room flows seamlessly into a gracious dining room through fluted wood columns with foliate detail. Original wood plank floors, wainscoting, and woodwork dazzle throughout, while multi-zoned ducted central air conditioning and high-end lighting and fixtures add modern elements to this distinctive residence. On the lower level, the vestibule and below-the-stoop entrance lead to a comfortable family room. Both form and function unite in an elegant, state-of-the-art chef's dream kitchen that leads to a backyard oasis with a paved patio and seasonal plantings. A gastronome's delight, the kitchen boasts a bounty of bespoke cabinetry, butcherblock countertops, a sleek built-in marble baking slab, a substantial center island housing one of two Shaws Original handcrafted sinks the second, a deep farmhouse style sink, sits beneath the garden windowsand an additional pot filler faucet above the range. Top-of-the-line appliances include a six-burner red Viking range with a grill, griddle, and two ovens, a built-in Gaggenau double-door refrigerator and freezer, a Thermador drawer microwave, an enormous pantry, and a Bosch dishwasher. This floor is completed by a vented LG Tromm washer-dryer, a half bath with luxe finishes, and a full, high-ceilinged basement below. One flight up from the parlor floor is a master suite with ample storage and dual walk-through closets leading to a lounge and large windowed bathroom that is tastefully renovated with hexagonal tile floors, a 12" rain shower with a separate handheld shower, a classic frameless black shower door, a modern marble double sink over a navy blue vanity, and complementary brass hardware and fixtures. A skylight crowns the top of the staircase on the upper floor where there are two sizable bedroomsa huge two-room rear-facing bedroom with a remodeled, windowed en suite bath, and an additional king-size bedroom in the front with a linen closet off the hallway. This gorgeous townhome is nestled on a quiet side street just a short distance from the best that Clinton Hill and Bedford-Stuyvesant have to offer.
