Welcome home to this delightfully classic townhouse, tastefully renovated with a spacious and flexible layout. The two family currently being used as a one family is the ideal combination of original details and modern updates. The charming entry foyer is a perfect example of this: antique chinoiserie wallpaper and original decorative tiles in the outer foyer are complemented by updated lighting and herringbone tiles in the inner foyer for a first impression that is both charming and refined. The large living room is flooded with light, thanks to the large bay window, and the home’s unique position overlooking the start of E 4th Street. In addition, an oversized opening to the entry foyer has further added to the spacious feel of the room. Just beyond the living room lies a cozy den with a lovely decorative fireplace. This room opens up to the formal dining room, which features a delicate tin ceiling and oversized original windows overlooking the quaint back patio. Off the dining room is the kitchen, with ceramic subway tiles, butcher block counters, dishwasher and a brand new 5 burner range by Verona. A full bathroom completes this floor.
Upstairs, off the light flooded landing is the large master bedroom also boasting a lovely tin ceiling with a full dressing room attached. The room next to the master used to be the second kitchen, and all plumbing is still intact should one wish to revert the home to its original two family layout. This room is currently being used as an artist’s studio, although it could easily be converted to a spa like en suite master bathroom, or an additional bedroom. The large front bedroom enjoys the light and charm of the bay window, and has another interior room attached that is currently being used as a playroom, but could also easily be made into another bedroom. A full bathroom and a small side room, great for a home office or nursery complete this level.
On the basement level of the home, one finds a fully finished and windowed space currently being used as a rec room and guest room. This level is also home to a full laundry room, storage space, workshop, and a full bathroom, and since it has a separate entrance would also work well as a potential au pair or in law suite. The home has lovely hardwood floors and custom rugs throughout, as well as restoration hardware and other showpiece lighting.
The Windsor Terrace location is supremely serene, yet far from sleepy with a plethora of dining options and quaint cafes on nearby Ft. Hamilton Parkway and Prospect Ave including: Le Paddock, Brooklyn Commune, Della, The Adirondak, Butterfunk Chicken and Hamilton's. In addition, the F&G trains are just two blocks away, as is popular Greenwood Playground and some of the prettiest parts of Prospect Park lay right beyond the Vanderbilt entrance, a mere four blocks from your door!
Additional features of this building include: Wired for stereo and cable & internet.
