Enjoy the best of all worlds in this newly renovated and restored approx. 3200 SF two-family home at the crossroads of two culturally and historically rich neighborhoods; Crown Heights and Prospect Lefferts Gardens. Tucked away on quiet block across the street from the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens and Prospect Park, and just a block to the Express subway lines, this home offers an owners duplex with great space, light, original details, a fantastic garden AND a high-income rental with its own private terrace to help you pay your bills every month. Enjoy a home with every bell and whistle including central AC, windows on three sides, designer kitchens and bathrooms, a formal dining room, separate living room, and even an eat-in kitchen in both the owners duplex AND the rental. This is an incredible opportunity for anyone looking to buy their first townhouse and relish the opportunity to live large both inside and out, for way less than the price of a two or three bedroom condominium in the area.
Sitting amidst a row of handsome brick townhouses that are distinguished by large bay windows in front facing South, the curb appeal alone will lure you in. Even better is the fact that this home is built extra deep on every floor, with an entire side of windows that afford you a more loft-like townhouse experience and less interior stairs. Sitting on a 23 x 100 lot, the house itself is 20 x 55 feet on the first and second floor and offers over 2200 SF of comfortable living. Enter the main floor of the duplex into an oversized living room large enough for formal dining as well. The middle of the floor consists of a windowed and sunny eat-in kitchen. The back offers three bedrooms with a full view of the incredibly charming and landscaped garden. Two renovated full baths make this home incredibly comfortable.
Head downstairs to a grand and wide-open English basement and laundry room with fully vented washer and dryer. With its two walls of windows and a full bathroom, this floor could easily be divided into additional sunny rooms as suit your needs for office and guest space, a music room, a media room, and/or a workshop or art studio.
The top floor has been artfully transformed into a 3-bedroom rental apartment with a windowed laundry room and home office, and an equally sunny and fabulous center windowed and eat-in kitchen. A terrace off the living room is perfectly situated and allows your tenant to enjoy outdoor life, and guarantees that you will never have a vacant apartment.
Attention to the smallest details is the hallmark of all of the finishes throughout this lovely home. Kitchens feature Samsung Smart Home appliances including a 5-burner vented range, custom white cabinetry, gray and white quartz countertops, and subway-tiled backsplash. A custom pantry offers additional storage and the perfect serving space for home cooked meals. Bathrooms have been finished in a soothing palette of blues and grays and include oversized porcelain tile and charming penny rounds.
