- Wood-burning fireplace
This charming and serene South Slope 8 room townhouse has been restored withan eye for detail. This is a legal 2-family, now used as a beautiful one-family home. Original wide-plank pine floors and tin ceilings shine throughout. The bright living room and the formal dining room each have their own brand-new wood-burning fireplace with period-appropriate exposed brick. The home has 2 beautifully renovated full baths. The kitchen and adjoining laundry (all with new appliances) overlook a large sunny garden perfect for alfresco dining. The third floor has 2 full bedrooms, and the parlor level has a large office/den that easily could be used as a third full-sized bedroom. Ample closet space on each of the living floors plus a full basement provide plenty of storage. This home's curb-appeal is unsurpassed, as recent renovations include new paint on the clapboard and wood trim front, a custom iron fence and security gate, and a beautiful new blue-stone patio. This house is steps to the F train and to 5th and 7th Ave restaurants and shops! Save the date; first showing will be at the open house on April 17th.
Brooklyn was once its own city, and still has a proud, independent, we’re-the-best-place-to-live vibe.
There’s certainly a residential experience for every taste. Brooklyn Heights is a classic suburb, with a half-mile long Promenade, 19th-century townhouses, and small co-ops. Along with the Heights, neighborhoods like Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, and Park Slope make up an area known as “Brownstone Brooklyn,” and their row houses often boast historical detailing, high ceilings, and fireplaces. Single-family houses abound in Brooklyn also, in neighborhoods like Ditmas Park, which has one of the largest groups of Victorian houses in the country; Flatbush, which has Colonial Revival houses with large lawns, and Mill Basin, where it’s possible to buy a waterfront single-family with a swimming pool. To the south, the peninsula of Coney Island has four neighborhoods — Brighton Beach, Coney Island, Manhattan Beach and Seagate — that are all about beaches, sun, and sand.
