Ideally located on one of the most coveted blocks in Bay Ridge, this renovated barrel-front home is an exceptional find that seamlessly blends rich pre-war features with modern upgrades.
South-facing and flooded with natural light throughout, this gem has stunning original details: inlaid parquet floors; impeccable woodwork; pier mirror; pocket doors; coffered ceiling; built-in cabinetry; textured wallpaper; fretwork; wainscoting; ceiling, floor, window, and picture molding; and stained glass windows, among others.
The extensive renovation includes: central A/C and heat, gut renovated kitchen and baths, new rear windows, and recently updated mechanicals and roof.
The expansive parlor level is truly the centerpiece of the home. With its high ceilings and bay windows, the living area is a sunswept sanctuary that leads to a dramatic dining room highlighted by gorgeous preserved details. A completely redone open chef's kitchen anchors the space. It features radiant heating, abundant storage space and honed granite countertops, large island, stainless KitchenAid appliances, and wine fridge. A convenient powder room can also be found on this floor.
Integrating indoor/outdoor living, sliding doors in the kitchen open to a garden oasis with deck, dining and lounging areas surrounded by established flowering trees, shrubs and perennials -- just in time for long sunshine-filled days.
The bright and airy upper level is lit by a stained glass skylight and has 3-4 bedrooms. The primary bedroom spans the width of the house, includes a separate sitting/office area as well as a walk-in closet, and has bay windows and treetop views. The fully-renovated spa-like bathroom features modern tiles, large walk-in shower with rainfall head, ample storage and its own skylight. There are two additional bedrooms on this floor -- both light and quiet overlooking the rear garden -- including a large second bedroom accented by an original exposed brick wall.
With its own private entrance, the finished basement has abundant storage space and a laundry area as well as a recreation room that's ideal as a home office, media room or play space with original tin ceilings, full bath and mini kitchenette. Also located on this level, the mechanicals have been updated and are in excellent condition.
With an exceptionally convenient location, the home is located on an idyllic tree-lined street, only a couple blocks from the nearest subway, and minutes to vibrant greenspaces, waterfront parks and promenade, a wealth of local shops, restaurants, and commuter ferry.
