Situated on the charming storybook corner of Clinton and Kane, this mint 20' wide single-family townhouse offers the perfect combination of scale, soaring ceilings, modern amenities and streaming light in a unique corner location. Dripping with curb appeal, the house is surrounded by landscaped front and side gardens framed with beautiful ironwork. Up the dramatic stoop and through large wood and glass doors, you will find a vestibule with mosaic tile that leads to the double parlor, which accommodates a formal living room and formal dining room, each defined by ornate woodwork in a neutral palette, ten-foot ceilings and an abundance of light from the seven oversized windows that punctuate the space. Off the dining room, the butler's pantry, with its cerulean blue cabinetry and antique mirror panels, provides a wet bar and wine refrigerator for elegant and easy entertaining. A stylish powder room, original woodwork, built-in bookshelves, detailed molding and a working wood-burning fireplace completes this stunning floor. Downstairs on the garden level, you will find a separate entrance under the stoop into a mudroom entryway. Perfect for day-to-day living, this floor is the heart of the home, with an open layout and wonderful flow between the dining area, kitchen and garden. Exposed beams lining the ceiling, a working wood-burning fireplace and a kitchen designed for the premier chef make this floor the perfect space for gathering. A 4-burner with center griddle Viking range stands as the centerpiece of the kitchen amongst custom cabinetry and is flanked by top-of-the-line appliances, including a Sub Zero fridge and a Miele dishwasher. Custom brass hardware, rich wooden countertops, a floor-to-ceiling pantry and a custom built-in desk add form and function. The dining area, which easily seats eight, is defined by a custom Edelman leather banquet and Atlas built-in brass and wood shelving. This multipurpose room opens to the rear garden, which is notably private, has intricate brickwork and mature landscaping, including roses that bloom with color all spring and summer. A powder room completes the garden floor. There is also a full cellar floor below the garden level that has the potential to be a gym, wine cellar or playroom and house the fully updated mechanicals. On the third floor, the primary suite is luxurious and sublime, with beautiful sunlight shining at all times of the day. The oversized primary bedroom has two exposures and a wall of floor-to-ceiling outfitted closets. An ensuite windowed bath has views over the garden. Overlooking Clinton Street, on the front of the house, is a stylish library with wonderfully detailed ebonized wood built-in bookshelves and a marble-clad, working wood-burning fireplace. Timorous Beasties wallpaper adds sophistication to this perfect room. The mahogany staircase leads to the top floor which glows with natural light from the skylight and eight oversized windows. This aerie has two bedrooms of equal size, with treetop views over Clinton and Kane Street and a shared windowed bath. A third smaller bedroom adds flexibility for a myriad of configurations, and there is a sunny laundry room with custom built-in cabinetry, a sink and refrigerator. Sundrenched with its three exposures and endless original detail, including wainscoting, marble mantles, pristine hardwood floors and impeccable attention to detail in every corner of this Cobble Hill home make this a rare offering. Cobble Hill is a coveted neighborhood in prime brownstone Brooklyn filled with idyllic tree-lined streets. It is known for its deep sense of community, local favorite shops, fantastic restaurants, specialty grocers, butchers and artisanal bakeries. There is also close proximity to public transportation, Brooklyn Bridge Park and highly sought-after public and private schools.
