194 MacDonough Street is ready to sell.

You'll be wowed upon entering this landmarked two-family townhouse. It's not just the meticulous, top to bottom renovation. It's not just the grand proportions including high ceilings, wide rooms and over-sized windows. It's the seamless weaving together of a little old and a lot of new, with a Zen-like, Scandinavian simplicity. It's the transformation of dark, 19th century details into a bright, airy and breathtaking space. It is, in fact, nothing quite like you've seen before in the neighborhood.

The house is both unique and turnkey. Built in 1887 in what is now Stuyvesant Heights, 194 MacDonough Street is a four story, two-unit landmarked brownstone built 20' x 45' with an extension on a 100' lot. The parlor floor features most of the restored 19th century details: the original, carved fireplace mantle and pier mirror, fretwork window casings with plantation shutters, and lovely sliding pocket doors with their original hardware (and the key!). Then the 21st century takes over with a sleek, minimalist aesthetic. The contemporary kitchen, with dining that easily seats ten, is outfitted in Subzero, Miele, Bosch and Thermador, with an oversized Kohler farm sink and a massive pantry. A lovely slate terrace off the dining area leads down to the garden.

No two baths in this house are alike, each designed with its own, unique yet neutral patterns and materials. The second floor can be used as either a floor-through master suite with vast sitting room or two separate bedrooms. All bedrooms are spacious and bright with plenty of closet space and lovely new trim. Four working fireplaces have been completely renovated and grace nearly every room in the house. Laundry is on the third floor, and all floors, including the immaculate white oak floors throughout the living areas as well as every full bath, are radiantly heated and individually zoned. Likewise, concealed, ducted central air conditioning is separately zoned for each room.

Also atypical is the spacious garden apartment, designed not as an afterthought, but with attention to detail. The massive open kitchen has a checkerboard feel to the cabinetry and a complete stainless appliance package. There is a vented washer dryer, a large spa bath with huge sink and luxurious vanity, a working fireplace in the large bedroom, and a private slate terrace, all details that will maximize income. With annual taxes of $4,443, that won't be difficult.

Even the basement has been described as "beautiful." Behind the scenes, you'll find two new, dedicated boilers and energy saving hot water heaters, and two separate gas meters. The house has been insulated for sound and pre-wired for FIOS, cable, wi-fi, and cameras. All fans and vents exhaust out. The doors are solid oak and oversized. In short, there is nothing left here to do but enjoy the fabulous renovation.

194 MacDonough Street is on one of the most picturesque brownstone blocks in the Bedford Historic District. It’s two blocks from the C train at Kingston-Throop and a short walk to the A express at Utica or Nostrand. Stuyvesant Heights offers easy access to some of New York’s best restaurants and clubs. This very special house is for the discerning home buyer who appreciates luxury and comfort, and a lucrative rental unit, or the investor who targets only the highest quality properties with plenty of upside.
