Singer and songwriter Santi “Santigold” White—best known for her singles “Creator” and “LES Artistes,” and more recently her video “Can’t Get Enough of Myself” which featured cameos by Jay Z, Pharrell, Olivia Wilde, amongst other A-listers—has just listed her stunning Bed-Stuy brownstone for $1,950,000. White originally purchased the property back in 2010 for just $775,000, meaning if she can make a sale, she’ll walk away with quite a tidy profit. With that said, the home at 786 Putnam Avenue should have no issues drawing in buyers. In addition to offering generous quarters as a “one-of-a-kind 2-family brownstone, currently used as an extra-large one-family residence,” plenty of lavish details make this home a standout.

While the space has seen a thorough renovation, many of the structure’s original details remain, including five working fireplaces, a mahogany staircase, parquet wood floors with inlaid designs, original window shutters, stained glass windows, original wood wainscoting and sliding pocket doors. Extra high ceilings also add to the air of the entire home.

Modern upgrades include central air conditioning and a large kitchen that has been decked out with a Thermador stove and custom cabinetry. A lush garden with a stone patio is just outside the kitchen, making this a dream home for anyone who loves to entertain.

The parlor bedroom comes just as steeped in ornamentation and boasts one of the aforementioned wood-burning fireplaces, as well as custom built-ins and an en suite bath with a very deep tub.

The master bathroom is also quite a sight, boasting top-to-bottom Italian marble, a skylight, a clawfoot tub, double shower and double vanity. There is also a massive dressing room with another wood-burning fireplace on this floor that can be turned into a bedroom.

Currently one of the smaller bedrooms is being used as a nursery, but has the perfect dimensions for anyone who wants a home office.
