Architecturally renovated from top to bottom with the finest materials and attention to detail, this truly special 22 wide corner home, located in the Greenpoint historic district, is a design gem, perfectly blending modern style with the homey comforts of its historic past. Designed and owned by an architect and an interior designer, both well-noted for their high-end residential interiors, they have created a cool combination of modern wallpaper, innovative tile design, and custom millwork that co-exists perfectly with the original painted wide-plank rustic floors, tin ceilings, original mantles, deep window seats, and charming shingled faade.

A legal 2-fam., used as a single fam., it features 4 floors of light-filled living space with windows on three sides, and a lovely lush garden near the best amenities this charming neighborhood has to offer. Parks, award-winning restaurants, grocery stores, health clubs, bars and art galleries, are just outside your door. Built in 1866, this fully restored Federal-Style home now features an elegant parlor floor with formal dining, a large living room with a real wood-burning fireplace, and a windowed chefs kitchen straight out of Dwell magazine. It includes a fully concealed Sub Zero Fridge, Bertazzoni range, Miele dishwasher, marble countertops and stunning custom cabinetry fashioned out of cerused white oak.

The second floor offers two spacious bedrooms, a windowed library, and a full bath. Your master suite haven awaits on the top floor and includes a massive windowed dressing room with custom built-ins throughout and a master bathroom unrivaled by anything you have ever seen in Brooklyn; heated floors, polished nickel Waterworks fixtures, Carrara marble, and a huge walk-in shower w a floating glass wall and deep soaking tub. Enjoy the sunsets from your top floor oasis, or head back down stairs to the finished and windowed garden level, complete with the original stone hearth and restored beadboard wainscoting, new black slate floors, and a real mud room perfect for all season storage.
