Description

Once in a while an amazing, perfectly appointed and unique luxury home becomes available. 37 Sidney is just such a place. This grand, elegant, 1846 Greek Revival is now an impeccably renovated Passive House standing mid-block on a beautiful, tree-lined street in the heart of the Brooklyn Heights Historic District.

37 Sidney Place is a 23 ft wide townhouse, featuring six bedrooms, seven full + two half bathrooms, multiple outdoor spaces- including a landscaped garden and two terraces. A smart, Passive House system integrates all 7040 sf of the home, spread out over six levels, 64 ft deep on the parlor and garden level, and sits on an extraordinarily long, 135 ft lot.

An elevator with bronzed mirror cab connects all six levels with ease.

Along with an advanced air ERV filtration system, the super insulated, air-tight construction allows for a more energy-efficient and near silent home. Triple pane windows reduce heat gain/loss while the ERV system extracts air toxins and allergens in the home 24 hours a day, filtering in new fresh air with a moderate humidity level. The air insulation and sealing, combined with a consistent humidity level, create a quieter, energy efficient and ideal environment.

The grand stoop and restored facade strongly stands on this quiet, two block, one way street. The Calacatta Vagli entry vestibule draws you in to the home with its subtle, warm tones. Excellent light flows through oversized, triple glazed windows, accented by 11.5 ft loft-like ceiling heights and gracious proportions throughout. A keen mix of tradition and modernity is on full display in the layout of the parlor floor. The majestic living room is centered around the custom Nero Marquina mantel with wood-burning fireplace that comes with an airtight door to maximize efficiency and exclude fumes. To the left is the custom, ascending, full house side stair that brings down light from its double skylights. Adjacent to the living room is a moody wet bar with ebonized oak and Calacatta Vagli backsplash that leads to the dining room. An integrated wine refrigerator and ice maker is at your fingertips. A powder room with integrated Belgian Bluestone sink is discretely tucked in off the side hall.

The dining room's vaulted ceiling is complimented by the built-in sideboard with open display shelves above. The grand chef's kitchen comes with dramatic Calacatta Macchia Vecchia stone, Lacanche gas French range with electric oven, a paneled Gaggenau ref/freezer, double integrated dishwashers, full height pantry + additional coffee bar with 30" Sub-Zero drawer ref/freezer and custom cabinetry. The oversized island is the kitchen's resting point. The magnificent marble backsplash echos the gesture of the trees visible through the wall of glass with Zola lift and slide door with motorized shades and retractable external door screen. Natural light pours in from this wall as well as from the triple glazed skylight above. The oversized sliding door seamlessly connects to the terrace and down the cascading stairs to the beautifully landscaped garden, featuring a host of nature's bounty and multiple seating areas.

Gaining light from the cascading kitchen stair as well as a wall of windows, the garden level great room lends itself to spreading out and entertaining at all times of the day. The new, curving stair to kitchen emphasizes verticality, connects the main living zones and optimizes the view through the skylight above. An extra-large Zola lift and slide door with motorized privacy shades and retractable exterior screens leads out to the back patio and yard. A small wet bar is tucked into the west wall and a powder room with a custom Calacatta Viola integrated sink is around the corner. An au pair suite, mud room with a secondary laundry featuring Meile w/d and storage finishes out the garden floor. Under the stoop storage is de rigueur, as with all townhouses, with a monitored, remote controlled latch system for easy, secure package delivery.

Out back is your own, extra deep, 75 ft, nature preserve with a large old growth London Plane and Norway Maple adding history to the space. Bluestone pavers, luxury turf and custom cedar privacy fence help define the space in new ways. All landscaping, including potted plants and window boxes, have automatic irrigation systems.

The full-floor primary suite features an east facing, primary bedroom with a 250 sf full width terrace that gives you a bird's eye view of the yard's flora and fauna. A luxurious bath with heated floors, 5-fixture bath wrapped in Calacatta Vagli slabs and ebonized oak vanity, steam shower with heated floors and bench, integrated speakers, and (3) showerheads + hand showers, large cast iron soaking tub, and separate W/C with smart Toto toilet with SensoWash. Off this bath is the extra-large walk-through closet. The front study offers a sizable workspace or bedroom with en suite bath with Arabescato Violet stone slabs and Cle zellige tile and its own walk in closet.

Two large bedroom suites with walk in closets and a laundry room fill out the floor above. Each en suite bath is detailed with Arabesacto Violet stone slabs and Cle zellige tiles. The laundry room is fitted with high-capacity LG units and a Sub-Zero under the counter beverage refrigerator.

The crowning floor is bathed in light- with two triple glazed skylights above the stairs and a full ceiling of east facing, triple glazed passive skylight from Germany with motorized exterior shade for privacy and solar shading above a great room, ripe for exercise or creative expression. This space can be seen as an out-cropping for the two bedrooms below. The front "treehouse room" has a romantic, pitched roof with two dormers and ample space to spread out. A Jack-and-Jill bath with triple glazed skylight comes with Arabescato Violet stone slabs and Cle zellige tiles is shared between these two rooms.

Take the elevator five stories down to the expanded, excavated cellar. This floor comes with a new slab with vapor barrier and insulation and features a gym room with custom mirrored storage cabinets, full bath with cold water bucket shower, custom Calacatta Vagli integrated stone sink and sauna room equipped for infrared or traditional sauna install. Completing the luxurious amenities of this floor is a refrigerated wine room with custom steel and glass insulated enclosure, providing everything needed within the confines of this incredible home.

37 Sidney Place is conveniently located only minutes from Manhattan and steps from Brooklyn Heights' finest cafes, restaurants, and shops. The Promenade, Brooklyn Bridge Park and Cadman Plaza Park are close by, and local public and private schools and public transit can be found in every direction, including the 2, 3, 4, 5, A, C, and R trains.
