A labor of Love! One of a kind – your own garden level floor-through condominium with a private townhouse-size back yard (800 Sq. Ft.) in an 1890 brownstone, one of five Queen Anne style row houses originally designed by Amzi Hill. One Bedroom and a den/office, one bath. The den/office is currently used as a second bedroom. Very low maintenance too!
A lovely front yard and a private entrance leads to a home that was reconfigured and gut renovated in 2014 with extreme care and thoughtful planning. The list of custom curated new elements is too long and is available upon request.
The most striking improvement is the opening of the kitchen to the living room, creating a larger living space with access and views to the huge outdoor area with a covered patio, room for a grill and a new lush landscaped garden. The covered patio feels like an additional room. Integrated home office desk and cabinets
The new kitchen has Calacatta marble island, countertops and backsplash. A large farm sink with polished nickel bridge faucet. GE appliances. Wine fridge. Custom maple cabinetry.
The new enormous bathroom has radiant heated floors and porcelain tile, Carrara marble counters with double vanity and separate tub & shower. Custom maple cabinetry.
New full size washer/gas dryer.
A new Mitsubishi cool/heat mini-split system with 36,000 BTUs was installed in 2020.
Other upgrades include: Dedicated own gas line from the street. Completely rewired electric. New interior and exterior doors & windows. ADT security system. Fully integrated surround sound in the ceiling in LR and hall. Soundproofing insulation in ceilings and walls.
