Beautiful Landmark Boerum Hill 1855 townhouse in a coveted Dean Street location. This townhouse had been renovated by the current Architect owners for use as their ideal home to enjoy their art, fine dining and gardening. It's an elegant 2 story (3 floor) brick home with great front ironwork, refinished brick facade, classic cornice, and a lush South facing rear yard. The dogwood tree in the front yard lights up the whole neighborhood with its spectacular bloom. It's now vacant, and READY FOR YOUR UPDATES! When you enter under the stoop you'll find the formal dining room with 2 windows over the front garden, a beautiful black marble fireplace mantle (working!), and space for a large dining table and formal dining room furnishings. This whole floor is finished in subtly rendered Venetian plaster, lending an elegant air. From the Dining Room you pass through to a fully realized Chef's kitchen with a wall of windows overlooking the rear garden. This is the real deal, featuring a full sized Viking range with 4 burners, griddle and two Ovens. Above is an industrial quality Viking hood that vents outdoors. There is a full sized Viking side by side refrigerator, double sinks, Miele dishwasher and vast counter space featuring a center island with plenty of seating. For your convenience while cooking or dining, you will enjoy the working fireplace, a wine fridge in the pantry around the corner, and plenty of shelves for your cookbooks. As you head up the updated staircase to the Parlor there is a convenient coat closet in the hallway, and a full bath. The three-parlor layout is just stunning with amazing restored crown and ceiling moldings, warm pine flooring, and 3 marble fireplaces (one works, and the mantle in the rear room is especially elegant). This open layout stretches from the rear of the house with 3 windows to the front with 2 windows flooding all the rooms with light. The configuration of the space allows you to use the 3 sections of the parlor in any way you choose or use it all together as unique lofty space. There is a small deck and trellis over the garden. On the top floor are two very large bedrooms and one smaller hallway room. The rear room is used as the principal bedroom, featuring a working fireplace, 2 windows over the garden and a large well-designed walk-in closet. The full en-suite bath features a very large space with tub, shower and skylight. The front room is currently used as an office, and is well suited to be a bedroom. It's an elegant space with high ceilings, 2 windows over Dean Street and plenty of closets plus an elegant mirrored mantle. The hallway room is set up as closet and storage space and could be perfect for a nursery or office. The South facing garden right off the Kitchen is a real oasis, with great privacy and excellent South and West light. The Cellar has decent ceiling height, lots of storage space, laundry, concrete floor, and features restored brick pillars. There is a cellar stair to the rear yard. The mechanicals are all in good working order, with a gas boiler providing steam heat. The location of this home is excellent. It's right in the middle of the Boerum Hill Landmark District surrounded by beautiful homes and leafy streetscapes. This is a highly walkable neighborhood with lots of shopping, dining and entertainment options. Transportation is amazing, with F/G/A/C/2/3/4/Q/R/N and LIRR all within a few blocks. Don't miss this amazing opportunity.
