This 1901 exceptional renovated brick townhouse sits on an oversized 20' X 100' property located on a quiet landmarked block in the South Slope, just a block and a half from Prospect Park in one of Brooklyn's most-sought-after iconic neighborhoods.
This expansive 3-story residence accommodates large family gatherings, indoor-outdoor living and full-time work and learning from home functionality. With four bedrooms, four baths and an English basement, the townhouse is zoned as a two-family. Currently configured as a one family, the home was thoughtfully renovated by an award-winning architect for easy conversion with income potential as a pied a terre with a first-floor or upper duplex rental.
Renovated to meld period details with a simple, elegant contemporary design, the home has a flexible floor plan that highlights the original building's exceptional width. Long bay windows at the front and dramatic open-walled window (Nana Wall door system) access to a broad rear deck flood the vast first-floor open concept living-dining space with natural light. A high-end chefs eat-in kitchen, with hand-painted Shaker-style custom cabinetry, offers plenty of storage. A center-island with bar sink accommodates kitchen prep plus seating for four overlooking the sumptuous garden just beyond the poured-concrete deck, added in 2014 as a foundation for a future extension or conservatory. The deep lush garden is bathed in all-day sunlight afforded by the lot's unique northern, eastern and western exposure. The slate patio makes this outdoor room ideal for 4-season living with impressive open-sky views. There is a renovated shower stall bath with heated floors off the living space on the first floor.
A Mitsubishi Split air system provides all-season comfort with both cooling and heating. The house also features new electrical, an electronics closet in the living room with an in-wall speaker system, walnut flooring (LV wood) and all walls plastered and painted (Farrow and Ball) with trim added.
Up the sweeping center stair to the second floor, 2 large rooms for sleeping or working from home open onto a central lounge area for in-home entertainment. Custom-designed French doors separate the lounge/media room from the rear study/sleep room. A full second kitchen can easily convert to a 2nd laundry room or combined with the second-floor full bath to make a luxurious spa-style bathroom.
The top floor features a massive master bedroom, a marble-tiled ensuite bath with a soaking tub, rain shower, ceramic-tile heated floor and Kohler fixtures, and walk-in closet. A renovated marble-tiled hall showered bath serves the south-facing 4th bedroom/office.
The spacious full height finished English basement has a separate under stoop entry with a windowed play recreation space, ideal as a media room, office or study. Tile and cork flooring installed. This floor also features a second walk-in closet, laundry and storage space for off-season and bulk.
385 14th offers the privacy of townhouse living paired with the luxury and ease of nearby exceptional dining, shopping, and entertainment options: Nitehawk Cinema, Historic Greenwood Cemetery, Park Slope Armory YMCA fitness center. Zoned for PS 107.
