IN CONTRACT. Designed by an architect for her family, the renovation of this 1100 SF (plus full basement) home is understated but sophisticated, textured and narrative-rich. Everywhere you look you find something strangely beautiful with a fascinating backstory: The front facade is clad with charred hemlock (an ancient Japanese wood treatment called ‘shou sugi ban’). The floors are forest-salvaged butternut from Vermont. The rear facade is clad with reclaimed corrugated steel from an old barn. A 100 year-old muscat grape vine grows in the backyard.

In contrast to the reclaimed materials, however, the electrical and plumbing are brand new, as is the zoned heating and cooling. The new kitchen is outfitted with marble counters, custom cabinets and open baltic birch shelving. In the living room sits a classic Danish wood-burning stove. On the top floor are two bedrooms, each spacious and bright. An open space lit by a skylight serves as an office or nursery. The slate floor in the bathroom is warmed by radiant heat. In the basement you will find a washer/dryer, plenty of storage space, a second bathroom with shower and room for a workshop or crafts studio.

The Gowanus neighborhood has a lot to offer: Nearby restaurants include Fletcher’s Brooklyn BBQ, Runner & Stone, The Pines, Littleneck, Bar Tano, and Four and Twenty Blackbirds, famous for pie. Whole Foods is within easy walking distance, as are the F, G & R trains. Don’t miss this house. When architects design for themselves the renovation is often done to exacting standards and the result is exceptional. This house is definitely exceptional. FIRST SHOWING APRIL 12.

Additional features of this property include: Charming Wood Stove (working), New windows by Pella, Nest thermostats, Properly vented range hood, Built-in Baltic Birch shelving throughout house, Smart and effective drainage system, Central air, New roof, and Backyard flowering apple trees and grape vine.

Sandwiched between Carroll Gardens and Park Slope, Gowanus has become one of Brooklyn's most popular neighborhoods. Every week it seems like a new restaurant, bar or hot spot is opening in the area. The once empty warehouses are filling with artists' studios, music venues, and artisanal businesses. In short, Gowanus has become a new creative enclave. It also has excellent connections to the rest of the city through the D, N, R, W, F and G lines.
