Built in 1910, like many of the grand homes in this part of Brooklyn, this Victorian-style brownstone has been through many lives over the past century. Originally built for a well-off turn-of-the-century family, over the decades it had been converted to a four-family house. A century’s worth of quick renovations and hasty paint jobs had covered up most of the home’s original grandeur. After purchasing the home, the owner set out to revive as many of the original details as possible. No detail was spared as this glorious brownstone once again showcases meticulous craftsmanship and period details such as restored crown molding, decorative ceiling pendants, wainscot wood paneling, and splendid trim/door details throughout. 

The chef's kitchen features custom maple cabinetry, chrome hardware, Caeserstone quartz countertops, and a full suite of high-end stainless steel appliances including a Bertazzoni 6-burner gas range + hood, Bosch 24" bar handle dishwasher, Sub-Zero fridge, and wine cooler. Downstairs, you'll find a bonus basement kitchenette with an under counter stainless steel beverage center perfect for entertaining. All bathrooms sparkle with chrome accessories and granite/marble countertops, while the master bath holds an extra surprise-an underscore bubble massage air bath to melt away stressful days. All fireplace mantels and surrounds have been refinished and restored, continuing to excite the eyes and share the history of this home. The only thing separating you from your beautiful backyard is a floor-to-ceiling NanaWall that can be opened to let the outdoors in.
