This is restored and updated move in already house with secure Parking, three zoned central air conditioning a wood burning fireplace and so much more! On one of the most beautiful, convenient and yet quiet blocks in Crown Heights.
This south facing brick & limestone bow fronted house has a large welcoming front terrace for the ultimate stoop sitting; the center front door opens into a large sunny full 20' width of the house living room, with a sweeping stair case down the right hand side and a wood burning fire place on the left hand side.
The living room has a wide opening through to the dining room with a large bay window overlooking the rear garden as well as original built in china cabinets.
The kitchen is beyond the dining room and there is a rear entrance from the kitchen to another large terrace for breakfast and supper in the warmer weather. Steps down from the terrace and your parking is right at your back door; move the car out for larger Parties etc. in the summer.
The ceilings on the Parlor floor are 10' high, there is much original detail including restored original parquet floors, high baseboard moldings, the original china cabinets, wood molding around all the windows and doors with the original brass hardware. Tucked behind the main stair case beside the dining room there is a laundry room/ bathroom with steam shower.
Up stairs are currently three bedrooms, and two full bathrooms. The master bedroom has a large terrace off the rear and an en-suite bathroom. The second bathroom on this floor is a family bathroom. There is a huge walk in (walk through) closet between the two large bedrooms in addition to extra closets in each room. The ceilings are9'6" on this floor.
The finished basement with direct front and rear exterior entrances as well as the interior staircase has a full bathroom with claw foot tub and separate shower as well as a wet bar, kitchenette. It has been used as a separate guest suite, a home office as well as a family room or recreation room, the ceilings in the finished basement are 7'6" high, the floors are acid stained concrete with a wax finish, the original stone walls have been sandblasted and finished. There is also a small work shop and plenty of storage.
The neighborhood: I have enjoyed living in this neighborhood because of the wonderful neighbors, the "Mom & Pop" shops where you can find good quality Organic provisions, fresh baked bread, dry cleaners, tailors, pharmacists, wine shops, hardware stores etc. And all with in easy access to the rest of the City with the 2, 3, 4 & 5 trains and it is so convenient to have a car with your own safe, secure parking space at your own back door waiting no matter what time of day or night you come home; press the button the gate goes up, drive in press the button, your home.... So it makes it so easy to enjoy so much more of the City; restaurants from Sheepshead Bay to Astoria or Manhattan or Park Slope etc. when you know you have your parking space waiting just for you!
And all this just one express stop from Barclay's Arena, The Brooklyn Academy of Music. 10-15 minutes walk to Prospect Park, Lincoln Terrace Park (Tennis) Brower Park & the children's Museum, The Brooklyn Museum, the Botanical Gardens etc. and just 30 minutes to midtown on an express train!
