Move right into this country estate in the city! Rarely available semi-detached brick property on the prettiest block in Crown Heights. Enjoy three-exposures, a huge wraparound garden, your very own parking space, central AC, and a 4-story light-infused museum-quality renovated home with no equal. Originally the rectory for the nearby Anglican church, this neo-Gothic mini mansion has been updated throughout but still retains incredible original details. Experience a piece of history through the fully restored arched windows, inlaid floors, oversized Piers mirror, Greek columns, plaster moldings, stained glass transom, and the stunning brick faade and gabled roof. A private paved alley takes you right up to the back of the house where you can park your car and easily unload your groceries and take them right into the kitchen. Three exposures all look out onto your very own front, back and side gardens, all masterfully landscaped with perennials, grass and hardscaping. Head into the magnificent home through a glass sunroom with a lovely slate floor that doubles as a mud room. A central foyer greets you upon entering the parlor floor, along with a dramatic center staircase that includes a mahogany newel post and banisters. The living room has the perfect proportions for oversized furniture and the current owners have juxtaposed mid-century modern lighting against a light historical backdrop including the oversized Piers mirror and columns. On the other side of the foyer is a formal dining living room with wainscoted walls, plus a curved window seat for yard-gazing. Enjoy the best of all worlds; the rich textures of bygone details within a light and modern framework. A fully renovated open kitchen includes white, gray and glass cabinetry, stainless steel professional appliances, a backsplash of subway tile, white Quartz countertops, and a built-in banquette breakfast nook. This L-shaped kitchen offers great storage and work space, and even includes a large prep island. Situated perfectly between the dining room and garden, you can easily entertain whether it be indoors or out, all year long. Old growth English Plane and Magnolia trees define this distinctive three-sided yard that also offers hardscaping for a dining area. You will truly forget that you are in the city. The next floor up offers two large bedrooms PLUS an unexpected office space. A full bathroom with a window and the classic NY finishes includes white and black hex tiles, a pedestal sink and cast-iron tub. The oversized front bedroom is a dramatic space with bay windows, while the back bedroom offers a full yard view. The top floor is currently being used as a master suite and includes another bedroom with bay windows looking into the neighboring treetops plus a newly renovated full bath complete with cast iron tub and penny tiles that separates this room from two smaller bedrooms in the back. One has been magically transformed into a walk-in closet, and the other that now lives as an office, but also makes a great nursery or guest bedroom. Skylights on this floor bring light down the entire staircase all the way to the parlor. The garden level has been fully finished and offers a multitude of options. In the back is an enormous laundry room with cabinetry and a utility sink, including an oversized vented washer and dryer. In the center of this floor are the mechanicals and ample storage space. The front has been transformed into a fantastic media room, home office, play room or, with the addition of a newly renovated full bathroom, make this a great nanny or guest suite as well. This truly is a home that has it all. Sitting pretty on one of the single most beautiful blocks in Brooklyn, with easy access to the great shopping and dining in both Prospect Heights and Crown Heights. Enjoy Franklin, Washington and Vanderbilt avenue amenities, in addition to Brower Park, The Childrens Museum, Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Museum and the Botanic Gardens. A new Union Market is easily accessible on Eastern Parkway too. One block to the 3 train and three blocks to the 2 and 5 express trains.
