In contract.Serene. Peaceful, Gracious. Stunning. Inside and out for this three story single unit townhouse. Lots of interest so holding a mid week open house. Bring architect, mother, mayor, whom ever to help you make the final decision. Conveniently located right off Nostrand Ave., there is great transportation, local shops and hip restaurants in every direction. North Crown Heights is the place to be, and this serene house is the jewel of the block. It offers classic details, modern updates, all within a wide open and spacious floor plan.The present owners have styled the home with the ultimate in contemporary chic while retaining much of the original detail. The mechanicals have been updated, and the finishes/fixtures have all been appropriately chosen with the ultimate in designer taste. The limestone exterior boasts one of the most gorgeous carved "Italianate" designs in the neighborhood, originally built around the turn of the 20th Century. From the historic blue stone front stoop pavers, to the large arched windows, to the simple cornice- this house is a design showstopper. The double parlor has a huge living room with a pier mirror, and pocket doors leading to an amazing rear extension for more entertaining, home office, or just closed off to use as bedroom. The wide plank floors have been refinished with a light contemporary feel accented by the black/white open skylight-lit staircase. Decorative original fireplaces with lovely mantels remain on each floor. The ground floor features the original gorgeous dining room and contemporary spacious eat-in kitchen. Walk directly outside into the most beautiful garden oasis featuring sitting areas, specialty plantings and a raised entertainment area all ready for summertime al fresco dining.The top floor has 2+ amazing bedrooms flanking an inner space with a skylight for a home office, den or other uses.
