Back on the market!Get in and see this house asap!This historic Brooklyn townhouse, dating to 1920, is a newly restored two-family home set on a quiet tree-lined block in Sunset Park. A recent renovation has rehabbed both the exterior, featuring a classic stoop, attractive window shutters, and a decorative cornice, as well as the interior, with beautiful hardwood floors and high-end finishes throughout. Spanning 2,860 square feet, along with an 883-square-foot rear garden and a small front yard, the home includes a sprawling owners duplex that runs the full length of two floors plus a finished basement, while the top floor is a two-bedroom rental unit. Located in the heart of one of Brooklyns most rapidly developing neighborhoods, the townhouse is near both express and local train stops, providing easy access to Manhattan.
The main garden level of the duplex features an open floor plan consisting of a very large living room with a decorative fireplace, a spacious dining area, and a huge open kitchen. The new kitchen is outfitted with lots of custom wooden cabinets, Silestone countertops, a tile backsplash, and stainless steel appliances including a microwave and dishwasher hookup. There is also a pullout pantry and a separate breakfast nook. Gleaming floors and recessed lighting run throughout this level, which also includes a full bathroom with a large walk-in shower and Kohler fixtures. This level provides direct access to the spacious garden, a serene outdoor area with a covered terrace and manicured flowerbeds, offering plenty of space for outdoor dining, BBQs and entertaining. The yard is pitched with two drains to prevent flooding; there is also a water hookup and plenty of outlets.
The parlor level of the duplex includes two spacious bedrooms with oversize custom closets and large windows filling both rooms with lots of natural light. There is also a luxurious bathroom with a whirlpool Jacuzzi soaking tub, stall shower, dual Kohler sinks, and Spanish tile flooring. Finally, the duplex has a finished, heated basement that can be used as a den, office or guest bedroom, as well as a separate laundry room. The basement was recently upgraded with moisture-blocking flooring and has a pump to prevent flooding.
The top-floor rental unit has also been recently renovated and consists of a large living/dining room and adjacent open kitchen, one sizeable bedroom, a smaller bedroom with a private entrance, and a full bath. This legal two-family home has been recently equipped with a new roof, boiler, mechanics, pumps, and a hot water tank for each unit.
Sunset Park is a diverse Brooklyn neighborhood known for its historic 19th-century homes and quiet neighborhood ambiance. A wide array of restaurants are found nearby on 5th Avenue, while the N express train is a few short blocks from your front door, with transfers to all subway lines available at Atlantic Terminal, just two stops away.
