History meets contemporary in this gorgeous 1872-built, landmark brick Italianate townhouse that's been impeccably restored and renovated to perfection. The handsome 2-family, 4-story gem in prime Greenpoint, Brooklyn boasts 3,100 square feet of elegant living quarters as well as a 750 square foot basement that expands the usable space even further. Occupying the residence is a wonderful 4 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom plus den/home office triplex, and a garden-level one-bedroom rental generating excellent monthly income. Generous outdoor space optimizes the allure with a private deck and large amazing rear patio and grassy yard.
While the home was completely renovated and modernized in 2017, wonderful period details abound and were fully restored to preserve character. Distinctive classic elements include 2 original wood-burning fireplaces, 2 original marble mantles, original plaster moldings, ceiling medallions, wall coverings, staircases, wood shutters, front doors, and etched glass in the entryway. The discerning buyer will just as much appreciate all the modern features incorporated such as high-end finishes and fixtures throughout the stunning interiors, a new roof with 2 new skylights and original stained glass, all new electrical and plumbing, new HVAC systems (triplex and garden apartment has their own) with central air/hot air gas heat, and whole-house high speed CAT-6 internet wiring.
Beyond a forecourt, the gracious front stoop with original balustrade accesses the main floor of the triplex which is perfect for entertaining. A grand living room with wood-burning fireplace connects to the brand new chef's kitchen appointed with custom cabinetry and breakfast nook, a Danby marble and reclaimed wood island, and premium appliances (6-burner Wolf range with grill, Wolf double ovens, Sub-Zero fridge, and Miele dishwasher). Step out to the new steel/bluestone deck through a new window/door unit at the rear of the kitchen to enjoy a coffee or cocktail, or down to the bluestone patio in the backyard for alfresco dining. Also on this level is a lovely powder room for guests.
Level 2 of the triplex offers an inviting front-facing family room with triple windows and a charming wood-burning fireplace for relaxing. Additionally on this level is the spacious primary bedroom suite with a big and fabulous walk-in closet, and spa-like bath with heated floors, a towel warmer, and glass-enclosed shower. On the 3rd story you'll find 2 more comfortable bedrooms, a den/office for working remotely, plus a full laundry room, full bath with heated floors, and roof access. What's more, you'll have direct access to the cellar/rec room for extended living space!
With its own entrance, the garden apartment is an ideal rental with a tasteful living room, marble mantle, new eat-in kitchen with granite countertops and GE stainless steel appliances, sizable bedroom, and new bathroom with heated floors.
Topping the appeal is the great location only 3 blocks from the subway and minutes to beautiful McCarren Park and Greenpoint's newly developed waterfront area. Come experience 131 Noble Street today!
