45 State Street, Brooklyn, NY, New York 11201. This spectacular Brooklyn Heights convertible four-bedroom, three-bathroom townhouse melds historic bones and meticulous renovations to create an inviting contemporary home with rarest of all Brooklyn amenities - an attached private parking garage!
Set within a former storefront building with two attached carriage houses, this fantastic 3,420-square-foot home is a truly rare and unique offering in one of the world's most revered historic neighborhoods. Windows and private outdoor space surround the home on all four exposures, and with no neighboring buildings fronting the same block, there's an unprecedented atmosphere of space and privacy. Inside, you'll find fine finishes, architectural details and wealth of both gracious entertaining spaces and peaceful private quarters. Arrive on the first floor - either from the front door entry or from the garage - and take in a fantastic open plan great room level lined with windows, closets and built-ins. Exceptional millwork, molding and hardwood floors set a stylish tone, and chefs will flock to the premium open kitchen (described as "eye candy" in a StreetEasy mention) filled with cabinet and pantry space, a large spice rack, and an army of top-notch appliances. A whimsical dumbwaiter transfers meals and dishes between here and the second floor where you'll find a large dining room and living room. French doors and oversized terraces open this level completely to the east and west, while the fireplace, powder room, and closets add charm and convenience.
Upstairs an enviable full-floor master suite occupies the entire third story. The sizeable walk-in closet attends to wardrobe needs, and the en suite bathroom includes an enormous soaking tub, separate glass shower, double vanity, radiant heat floors, and heated towel rack. On the top floor, two more bedroom suites each feature spacious closets and well-appointed private baths of their own. Originally designed with three large bedrooms on this level, the current owners combined two bedrooms to create an oversized bedroom/playroom/tv area. The layout could easily and quickly be reverted back to a four-bedroom arrangement without sacrificing light or space.
Located in the revered Brooklyn Heights Historic District, this extraordinary home is surrounded by world-class dining and breathtaking, waterfront outdoor space. Beloved Adam Yauch Park is steps from your front door. Take a stroll along the famous Brooklyn Heights esplanade or head to massive Brooklyn Bridge Park, featuring a near-endless list of recreation and attractions. Transportation couldn't be easier with nearly every subway line in the city within 10 minutes or less, including R, 2/3, 4/5, F, G and A/C trains.
