122 Amity is a rare 26' x 100' brownstone condominium located in the heart of Cobble Hill's historic district. Unit 1, an incredible triplex, consists of the parlor floor, garden level, lower level and private backyard. Totaling approximately 2,685 interior square feet plus 1,393 exterior square feet, this property presents an opportunity to experience all the best parts of townhouse living without the upkeep of an entire building. Low monthlies and unparalleled scale make this renovated home a unique opportunity in one of Brooklyn's most coveted locations.
Upon entering the property from either the garden or parlor level, immediately you get a feel for the dramatic width. Built 26 feet wide and 100 feet deep, the parlor is a masterpiece in townhouse architecture. Featuring 12.5 foot ceilings, two wood burning fireplaces, original moldings, preserved arches and plasterwork, gorgeously restored floors and pocket doors and both southern and northern exposures, this room is pure magic. Anchored by large 8 foot tall windows on one side, the grand parlor consists of elegant living and dining areas and a newly gut renovated eat in kitchen with a stand-alone island. Subtle gray millwork with bronze hardware and accents create a warm and inviting kitchen that blends seamlessly with the original details which have been meticulously restored. There is also a newly renovated powder room on the parlor level.
Off the kitchen is a massive private south facing garden which spans the entire 26 feet of the house. The backyard at 122 Amity has been completely updated to include new decking and bluestone, new pergola, new fencing covers, all new perennial plantings connected to an irrigation system, new lighting and a new staircase connecting the parlor deck to the garden. Live large amongst the bucolic private gardens of this stunning block between Amity and Congress Streets. You are flooded with light all day and surrounded by towering mature trees, cherry blossoms, Japanese maples and magnolias.
The garden level features three bedrooms, a mudroom, tons of storage and two full baths. The primary bedroom features a stunning black marble fireplace, a brand new walk in closet, two north facing windows, a limestone bathroom with separate tub and walk in shower, new lighting and floors, and complete privacy from the second and third bedrooms.

The entire garden level features new hardwood floors, carpeting, lighting, and redone closets.
The lower level was completely finished and built out by the current owner, and features brand new vented laundry machines and a laundry room, a wine cellar, a newly renovated powder room, tons of additional storage and enough space to create a home office, playroom, home gym or guest room. Seven foot ceiling heights and fully ducted central A/C and heat make this lower level versatile and valuable.
