Perfectly located on a highly coveted tree-lined street in prime Bay Ridge and just minutes to the waterfront, this sprawling and private home has all you could want: a gracious layout with expansive rooms; gorgeous light throughout from oversized windows and four exposures; rich pre-war details and high ceilings; original stained glass; convenient split a/c units for cooling in every room; and an oversized garage with lengthy private driveway. 

With 6 bedrooms and 4.5 baths, the immaculately maintained home is over 5100 square feet in total and has a nicely elevated entrance on an oversized lushly landscaped 50' x 109' lot.

The side hall entry opens to a welcoming foyer and grand first floor that is a highlight of the home. Its South-facing double living area is a true stunner, sun-drenched by 15 windows including South-facing bay windows. The space is accented by a classic arch and beautiful original herringbone hardwood floors with inlay borders that continue through the large formal dining room, ideal for entertaining. 

The eat-in kitchen is complete with a cheerful breakfast nook, abundant storage and granite countertop space, integrated Sub-Zero, wall oven, and cooktop stove. A corner office/den and powder room are also found on this level.

A wide staircase with stained glass windows lead to the serene and airy second floor, which offers treetop and open sky views from every window. The spacious en-suite primary bedroom runs the full width of the home and has its own dressing room and windowed bathroom with tiled shower. 

The second largest bedroom sits in the tranquil rear of the home, with lovely light from a corner bank of windows. Another spacious bedroom and full bath are also on this level. The third floor offers 3 more whimsical bedrooms with original ceiling coves and arches and full bath.

The lower level has 8.5' ceiling height and widows on all sides and further expands the living space, featuring a spacious fully finished recreation area, laundry room and bath as well as abundant storage and utility areas. 

The secluded wrap-around yard makes outdoor living a breeze with a lovely lawn area, patio and established plantings and trees. 

Improvements include updated electrical within the last 5 years, replaced water main, well-maintained mechanicals, new top floor windows, new full alarm system, recently redone driveway, among others.  

This exceptional and meticulous home has an unbeatable location and is surrounded by the neighborhood's most stately and exclusive properties and provides easy access to a wealth of local amenities, shops, diverse dining options, waterfront parks and promenade, and transportation options.
