This unique Cobble Hill home will instantly get the attention of history buffs. Built within a converted Romanesque Revival church constructed in the 1880s, this three-bedroom home at The Landmark at 58 Strong Place was designed by top local architecture firm Baxt Ingui Architects. Asking $2,600,000, the 1,855-square-foot triplex takes full advantage of the building’s unusual layout, creating loft-like spaces for privacy and ease of living.
From the front yard, a private entrance–a 10-foot-high arched door–opens into the dining and kitchen area beneath 15-foot-high ceilings. The apartment is currently configured as a two-bedroom home with an eat-in-kitchen, living room, and bonus family room. With an architect’s guidance, you could easily create three bedrooms.
The dining room and adjacent sunken living room are accented by custom millwork. Oversized mahogany windows keep the space filled with light. Some 21st-century design and technology details include lighting by Flos, handmade barn door hardware, and a multi-zoned heating and cooling system with smart thermostats.
In the kitchen, white Shaker cabinetry lines the walls–a custom steel library ladder allows easy access to upper kitchen shelving–for plenty of storage. Beneath historic clerestory windows, a dining and prep island with black granite countertops anchors the space.
The primary bedroom is on the lower level as well. Features include two big closets and oversized windows. The primary bath boasts black slate floors, Carrara marble walls, an oversized tub, and a glass-enclosed shower.
Upstairs is a second bedroom–and a huge second living area overlooking the kitchen that can be easily converted to a third bedroom. Also up here are a home office space, and a real laundry room with a Miele washer and dryer. The second bathroom is framed by limestone floors and travertine walls.
Building perks include a virtual doorman, a full-time super, a mail and package area, and common outdoor space. Public transportation is steps away on Smith Street, and all of your Cobble Hill favorites are within a few blocks.
