This is a tremendous opportunity to own a triple-mint, two-unit, three-story townhouse located on a beautiful tree-lined street in Bedford-Stuyvesant. The home is a perfect model of modern convenience wrapped in the elegance of a classic pre-war brownstone. The extensive renovation of this turn of the century historic home has produced an impeccable owner’s duplex with 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths, a separate renovated garden apartment, a finished owner’s cellar that can be accessed from the garden level, and a beautifully designed garden area with three distinct and private outdoor spaces.

As you enter through the Italianate archway, past the inviting living room with original mantle, large dining room area and powder room there is a bright, airy and masterfully decorated chef’s kitchen, re-imagined for both glamorous entertaining and every-day cooking, with custom shaker-style cabinets, a spacious breakfast bar, white quartz countertops and open Calcutta marble shelving thoughtfully designed with new state of the art appliances including a Miele dishwasher and refrigerator and Bertazzoni 6-burner range with hood, that are all beautifully blended.

The owner's duplex has swoon-worthy details like soaring ceilings, sunlight pouring in from over-sized windows, exposed brick walls, wide plank dark cherry Brazilian hardwood flooring, built-in bar with marble counter, central A/C, new LG washer/dryer with dry clean feature and all updated original styled molding throughout.

The chic, glossy black lacquered bannister leads to the third floor with a blend of original prewar details and modern renovations. On the north end is a large master bedroom with custom built in black lacquered shelf’s and closet storage and an en-suite spa-like bathroom with waterworks tile and shower. In addition, two other large bedrooms and an additional bathroom on the south side of the home with new and vintage lighting fixtures and fitting throughout the home. No detail has been spared throughout this smart home. The multi-zone central climate control, plumbing, electrical, flooring, windows and doors have been replaced and upgraded thoughtfully with an eye on design for modern living.

The backyard is a 1200 square foot masterpiece, completely redone and built-out with all new with irrigation and lighting systems. The parlor floor terrace is equipped with a lovely trellis and planters complete with perennial plants and herb garden overlooking a garden deck with large eating and barbecue area. A privacy fence was added with custom pergola with wisteria tree and there is a third sitting area with a flagstone patio and additional storage under the steps.

The floor-through garden rental is step above the rest with tasteful design, large open kitchen plan, great counter space with white quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, overlooking the spacious dining and living area with wide-plank, dark-cherry Brazilian hardwoods. The 1 bedroom, 1-bath, apartment has great closet space and a hallway toward the rear that leads to the master bedroom that has a bird’s eye view and access to the flagstone patio and plush garden area.

202 Van Buren Street is surrounded by the classic serenity of Brooklyn brownstones and the energy of a culturally diverse community with superb dining, craft cocktail bars, homemade marketplaces, and destination hangouts. Local favorites include Calaca, Saraghina, Stone Fruit, Pilar, Corner Grind, Speedy Romeo, Mixtape, Doris, Black Swan, Clementine Bakery, and Glorietta Baldy and St. Andrews playground. This property is ideally located 0.5 miles from the J,M,Z stop at Myrtle Ave offering convenient access throughout Brooklyn, Manhattan and Queens.
