Even from the outside, this stunning property has the stately old world charm of a Brooklyn townhouse. But it has been carefully restored to include the luxury of modern living.

The bones of the unit may be over 100 years old, but the interior is modern and made to entertain. The dramatic architectural staircase is drenched with natural light from skylights above it. Touches of natural wood contrast against strong black finishings for a clean and artful design.

Continuing into the kitchen, the open concept space plays off of the full glass wall to completely open and brighten the space.
The modern kitchen has everything from top drawer appliances to custom oak cabinets. When hosting, caterers can prep in the back kitchen for a clean living space during a party.

The second floor has a spacious and open media room with a long built in cabinet to keep the electronics hidden. Enjoy the game or the view from the full glass windows.

Whether you are gearing up for a movie night, or wanting to give guests a quiet place to sit and catch up, this is the perfect second gathering space on the second floor.
There’s also an alcove with additional built ins for a private and organized home office.

The elegant bathroom has a clean cabinet design, touches of black, and glass walls for a room that feels luxurious and relaxing.

Wake up on the third floor with a private view to the backyard. Glass walls and natural light make for a beautiful open master bedroom.

The spacious and lush backyard easily brings the party outside with over two thirds of the door sliding open for a full walkout main floor.
