Located on a tree-lined block in Brooklyn’s Kensington neighborhood at 214 East 9th Street, a short walk from Prospect Park and near the Beverley Road Q subway, this single-family townhouse is the picture of considered design. Framed by turn-of-the-century bones, the home’s four floors–including the fully-finished basement–have been given a modern renovation that’s as livable as it is pretty. The four-bedroom house is for sale by its owners–professional designer/developers who have lived in the home since purchasing it in 2015 for $780,000.

On the main floor, an open layout provides the perfect space for entertaining. The living room, dining room and kitchen are on this floor, and all are bathed in light from a glass wall that overlooks a lovely deck and garden.

The crisp, white kitchen is, as the listing promises, a cook’s dream, with a nine-foot-long island lit by a skylight overhead providing plenty of prep and storage space. Custom appliance choices include a Fisher & Paykel refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher and Bertazzoni gas range.

Behind the scenes, no expense has been spared on mechanical updates with new plumbing and electrical, central heating and A/C. The house has been newly insulated and has a new roof and energy-star windows and doors. Quality additions like floors of rift and quarter-sawn white oak, an Abode security system, an ipe deck, cedar fencing and nest thermostats are all present and accounted for.
