Imagined and designed by a husband and wife architectural team, 194 16th Street is a newly constructed, single family townhouse built with the utmost care and craftsmanship. Conceived to maximize light and air the home exudes a serene energy, and is the perfect oasis from city living. Upon entering, one immediately notices the beautiful satin finished, white oak, wide plank hardwood floors found throughout the home. The cozy living room features two oversized windows, offering excellent light, while a built-in "fireplace" nook gives a focal point to the room, as well as access for hiding TV cables. Beyond the living room lies the massive kitchen. Built to be the heart of the home, this open room features vaulted ceilings, as well as jaw dropping floor to ceiling windows opening up to the backyard beyond. A perfect space for entertaining, there is plenty of room for a large scale dining table or choose a smaller dining set to leave room for conversational seating. An eight foot long breakfast bar overlooking the garden easily seats four, and is a dreamy place for morning coffee or a glass of wine at the end of the day. The kitchen features a full suite of Bosch stainless steel appliances, including a drawer microwave, exhaust hood vented to the outside, and an oversized Blanco 28" sink. Handsome Quartz countertops and backsplash lend an air of luxury, while custom straight grain red oak kitchen cabinets with built-in double waste basket, half-susan corner cabinet, silverware and utensil organization systems, and a double pantry provide plenty of storage. The backyard extends your living space with a patio right off the kitchen, and the large grassy yard and trees create the perfect setting for play or relaxation. Up the stairs, the first landing takes you to the master bedroom suite featuring a spa-like en suite bathroom with Riobel fixtures, a separate water closet with Toto toilet, custom vanity with double sinks, a linen closet and an oversized walk-in shower with built-in bench, natural light panel and dual shower controls. A few more stairs lead you to the second landing where one finds a large laundry closet with full-sized side by side Whirlpool washer and vented, gas dryer, as well as plenty of space for linen and laundry storage. The second bedroom is also tucked away on this landing, also with its own en suite bathroom, and a walk in closet. Its remoteness from the rest of the home also makes it an excellent in-law suite or home office. Up the stairs on the third floor are two more large bedrooms, another beautifully designed full bathroom, and three skylights!The home was built brand new from the ground up, and features a brand new three zoned central air and heating system with three separate condensing units for cooling and three gas fired, split system furnaces. New steel frame walls were built independent of the party walls, creating superior structural integrity and sound proofing. Extra insulation was also added to the entire envelope, including the roof, making the home extremely energy efficient. Adding to this are the brand new Marvin integrity casement windows found throughout, which are also known for their superior efficiency. The home has fully engineered sprinklers, a brand new roof, and new fire resistant Hardie fiber cement siding. The 16th Street location provides excellent subway access with the R train just two blocks away at Prospect Ave, and the F&G just seven blocks away at 4th and 9th Streets. The Park Slope Armory YMCA is just three blocks away, and neighborhood favorites such as Sidecar, Prospect Bar & Grill, Piccoli Trattoria, Buttermilk Bar, Athena, OS Cafe and Have a Nice Day Play Cafe are all right around the corner! The home is currently zoned for PS 10.
