Yes, this is actually a Manhattan residence, not a Brooklyn pad in disguise. The renovated single-family brownstone is located just a block from Central Park and is brimming with charm.
The cozy and familiar home has an owner of practically 50 years who has updated the interior with modern comforts like radiant heated floors, but it’s details like decorative fireplaces and stained glass accents that make this place truly special.
The garden level has a contemporary kitchen with direct access to a private meditative garden. The front and rear parlors are separated by pocket doors, and both areas have built-in shelving for storage. There’s also an adorable little alcove marked by an arched doorway, adding some character along with functionality to the space.
The home also features a master bedroom with a beautiful bay window and a walk-through closet that leads to a second bedroom. Unfortunately there’s no real en suite master bathroom–in fact, the only bath on the entire floor is closer to the second bedroom. So, we vote to use the second bedroom as a home office to create one big third-floor master suite.
While you take over the third floor, your children or guests will have everything they need on the fourth floor (maybe even too much for the kids). There’s a kitchen and dining area, a living room overlooking the street, and two bedrooms/office spaces. According to the floor plan, this level also has roof access.
