Situated in the heart of the Boerum Hill Historic District, this brick townhouse at 122 Bond Street was built in 1852 but was recently renovated to include the best in modern living. At the price of $3,250,000, the single-family home provides 2,340 square feet of living space including three bedrooms and a full finished basement. There’s also a lovely rear garden that rounds out this perfect family residence.
The main entrance is on the garden level, where you’ll walk into an entryway with a heated monogrammed tiled floor.
From there are the dining room and open kitchen. A painted wood-burning fireplace does double duty as a decorative element. The kitchen has been outfitted with custom symphony blue and white lacquer cabinetry, quartz countertops with a waterfall edge and matching sheet backsplash, an integrated french door Sub Zero fridge, vented Wolf range, Miele dishwasher, and an undermount sink complete with a garbage disposal and instant hot water.
Throughout the home, you’ll find walnut-stained white oak floors, ductless AC/heat, and a smart home system by RTI Automation including lighting and multiple sound zones.
Even the powder room on this floor is impeccably designed, featuring mosaic tile floors, black wainscotting, and Flavor Paper’s famous Brooklyn Toile wallpaper. Every bathroom in the house is equipped with radiant heat floors.
French doors off the kitchen lead to the landscaped and irrigated backyard, which features new bluestone and a unique mural by Miami-based street artist Jona Cerwinske.
Upstairs, the original parlor floor entryway (which retains the original parlor door and transom above) would make a perfect home office nook. In the main living space, the home’s classic details like original moldings and medallions are on full display. The wood-burning fireplace with the restored original marble mantle highlights the space and is flanked by custom built-in shelving.
Through sliding glass-paneled doors is what’s currently used as a playroom. This space also features custom built-ins including a window seat with storage beneath. There’s a full bathroom on this level, as well, and it’s adorned in Carrera marble with a fun wallpapered ceiling.
On the top floor, which gets great natural light from a hallway skylight, are the three bedrooms and another full bathroom.
The finished basement has radiant heated floors throughout and boasts another full bathroom with a stand-up shower, tons of storage space including a walk-in cedar closet, and a laundry closet with an LG washer and vented dryer. As the listing says, there are tons of options for this space, like “an additional living area, guest quarters, music room, or home office.”
Some of the larger improvements made on the house in recent years include a new roof, electrical system, plumbing, copper gutters, and a freshly pointed facade. It’s located in the heart of the charming neighborhood, right near some of Brooklyn’s best restaurants and cocktail spots like Rucola, Grand Army, French Louie, and Mile End (to name a few), as well as the shops of Atlantic Avenue and almost all the major subway lines.
