Description

70 Conselyea Street

Adorning a picturesque block on Conselyea Street, in Williamsburg, this red brick federal style home exemplifies the artistic heritage and cultural fabric of this fabled neighborhood. This residence has just been meticulously renovated and restored with beautiful modern finishes, yet retains its original character and pedigree.

Historically significant with its warm red brick and hand carved & restored Cornice, this light and airy 20 foot home on a 86 foot lot circa 1898 boasts 5 bedrooms, 5.5 new bathrooms, a top-of-the-line custom kitchen garden level, a splendid planted & irrigated garden, 2 gas fireplaces, original period details including the restored original double entry doors and a fully finished lower level retreat complete with a screening area and wine bar.

Let's begin the tour!

Enter on the garden level and unload in your efficient mudroom and find the coziest of dens waiting for you complete with the original butlers pantry and bar. The centerpiece of this warm room is the gas fireplace with handsome slate mantle. Every detail was carefully considered including the addition of the home's Lutron lighting system, Sonos Stereo throughout, 5 zone heating & CAC as well as security cameras with remote access.

The chefs kitchen is traditionally on the garden level and beautifully appointed with custom millwork, designer lighting, and a suite of the very finest appliances including an iconic Le Cornue stove and hood, built in Subzero and 2 paneled Miele dishwashers and an under counter microwave for your convenience. The hardwired oversized snack and beverage pantry is the ultimate luxury for hiding your espresso station and stand mixer. This level is home to a new full bathroom and has the access to the bluestone leafy garden with its extensive lighting, mature boxwoods, topiaries and outdoor grill.

Up one level to the gracious parlor with soaring ceilings, lovely tall windows with shutters and a pair of slate mantles. The formal dining room resides on the parlor and has its own catering kitchen/bar with a Bertazzoni range and a third Miele paneled dishwasher for easy entertaining. A chic and convenient powder room is tucked away on this floor offering privacy for guests. The formal living room is simply magnificent with its 10.5 foot ceilings, restored original pocket doors, and a pair of matching Angelo Lelli Style handcrafted imported Italian light fixtures. The centerpiece of the room is the gas fireplace with slate surround.

Up one more flight to the kiddos quarters! Large and quiet bedrooms and guest rooms galore await with new porcelain and ceramic bathrooms. One of the two is outfitted with a secondary full sized stacked laundry unit.

The primary ensuite on the 4th floor is a relaxing sanctuary with 2 new marble bathrooms, a sitting room, 2 dressing rooms completed by a trio of authentic matching Sergio Mazza "Pi" pendants. Magnificent tree top vistas with cinematic light with distant Manhattan views offer peace and quiet on this top floor.

The finished basement is another special environment complete with toasty radiant floor heat, a screening room for movie night and an indulgent full bar and snack area. A full laundry area complete with sink and oodles of storage completes this amazing lower level.

Creature comforts at 70 Conselyea include all new plumbing and electrical, CAC, 2 remote controlled gas fireplaces, new Marvin windows and all with shutters, new hardscaped and landscaped front and back gardens with irrigation, 2 brand new kitchens and 5.5 new marble bathrooms.

Lastly, we think the generous ceiling heights in this beauty are very special:
Parlor floor: 10'5"
3rd floor: 9' 5"
4th floor: 9'3"

This fantastic location offers both amazing dining & shopping and the "G" and "L" trains just one block away.
