When we first saw photos of this four-story home located at 416 Pacific Street in historic Boerum Hill what came to mind was beautifully planned opulence. On the market for a whisper under $5 million, every room is full of rich fabrics and textiles with no detail left to chance. Less than two years ago it was sold as a two-family residence for a little over $3.3 million, but the current owner masterfully transformed it into a magnificent single-family home, and though it is easily convertible back to its previous form, we can’t imagine giving up a single piece of the square-footage.
The parlor level takes your breath away with floor-to-ceiling windows pouring sunlight into its over 400-square-feet of luxuriousness. Whether hosting a party for a few dozen of your closest friends or cozying up with your favorite book next to the marble wood-burning fireplace, this lovely space boasting 11-foot ceilings is the heart of the home and the one where we’d spend much of our time.
But don’t count the kitchen out as the room where the fondest memories will be made. A true gathering spot, the modern chef’s kitchen features stone counters, top of the line appliances, and plenty of counter space. The custom banquette is perfect for casual dining and doubles as a homework counter or simply the place where friends and family congregate to enjoy each other’s company.
Occupying the entire third floor is the incredible master suite. Bigger than many city apartments, it includes two separate and fully updated bathrooms, a massive bedroom, and the most amazing dressing room featuring custom millwork, mirrors and more closets, drawers and storage space than one could dream is possible—almost enough room for Imelda Marcos to house her infamous shoe collection!
Perched on the top floor you will find three lovely bedrooms—two of which are large enough to easily be master bedrooms in their own right—and each outfitted with California Closets and custom hardware.
The ground level’s media room features another wood burning fireplace, a custom wet bar with wine fridge, and beautiful woodwork making it yet another cozy retreat to stretch out and relax with your guests. This level also features a fifth bedroom, which can double as a home office. Even the basement is fully renovated, boasting a large and well-lit recreation area in addition to lots of storage.
As gorgeous as this home is inside, we bet you’ll be spending plenty of time outside surrounded by mature trees and plantings on the private terrace off the parlor level and the large pavered patio off the garden level. And when you decide to venture away from your lovely abode, some of the best restaurants, bars, cafes, and shops are a quiet tree-lined stroll away.
