A gut-renovated freestanding mansion nestled on a spacious corner lot in Cypress Hills, 500 Jamaica Avenue blends a one-of-a-kind layout and façade with an incredible array of luxurious fixtures and finishes. Features of this sublime two-family home include gorgeous hardwood floors, recessed lighting, several private outdoor spaces, central heating and cooling, a finished attic and cellar, a charming corner turret, several bay windows, a spacious laundry room, and an income-producing rental unit.
Past a gracious front porch the 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom owner’s triplex opens directly into an expansive, open-concept living room, dining room, and kitchen. The living space spans the entire width of the house while the dining area transitions seamlessly into an immaculate eat-in kitchen. The kitchen is equipped with a marble waterfall peninsula, marble countertops and backsplashes, custom lacquer cabinetry, and a suite of high-end stainless steel appliances.
All three bedrooms sit on the second floor. The enormous master suite stretches the length of the house and possesses a south-facing bay window, a massive closet, a private balcony, and an immaculate en-suite bathroom with a mosaic tile floor, a huge vanity, and a glass-enclosed walk-in rain shower with built-in shelving and a frosted window. The second and third bedrooms each have private closet space and share access to a pristine full bathroom. In addition the second bedroom has access to a private terrace. Finishing the owner’s triplex is a luminous attic as well as a cavernous cellar. Both can be used as additional living areas, play rooms, workspaces, or extra storage.
The income-producing rental unit is a cozy 1-bedroom, 1.5-bathroom duplex that has its own entrance. The upper level contains an open kitchen and living space while the quiet bedroom resides on the lower level.
500 Jamaica Avenue is situated across the street from the lush confines of Highland Park and Lower Highland Playground. It is just a few blocks away from all the restaurants, cafes, shops, and markets that line Fulton Street and Atlantic Avenue. The J and Z subway lines are just a short walk away, and the Q56 bus line stops right in front of the house.
