There is no better address in Brooklyn then tree lined Remsen Street, at the foot of the Brooklyn Heights Promenade, offering gorgeous Manhattan and river views. A classic Greek Revival home, an expansive 26 feet wide, sitting over 7700 square feet, and replete with beautiful detail ? plaster moldings, fireplaces, gorgeous stained glass skylight atop, to name a few. This home is in impeccable condition, renovated to include all modern conveniences within a classic townhome. This home can be rented fully furnished with the extraordinary antiques throughout, or unfurnished, as you prefer.
Dramatic in scale from top to bottom, the parlor floor offers soaring ceilings, plaster crown moldings and ceiling medallions, leaded glass doors opening onto a rear terrace, and two fireplaces. A small service kitchen is large enough to host the most festive dinner parties in this home?s dramatic dining room.
The garden floor houses the main kitchen, modern in style, fit out and scaled for serious cooking. Gather around the fireplace or kitchen table with family. Move nimbly from inside out to the spacious back yard, leafy and green with seating area to dine al fresco. This floor also offers a comfortable family room and powder room. The cellar houses mechanicals as well as an oenophile?s dream ? an enormous wine cellar situated between the homes masonry supporting arches plus an adjacent wine tasting room, also perfect for intimate dinner parties.
The master bedroom floor offers two additional fireplaces, one in the oak paneled den and another in the master bedroom, which overlooks the tranquil garden. A walk-in closet and windowed, modern ensuite bathroom with shower and tub, complete the master suite. Spacious bedrooms and 2 bathrooms sit one floor above, and the top floor of the house provides a glorious surprise. To the front of the house on this floor, is a fully finished screening room where it is all too easy to settle in and watch a movie, or enjoy the skyline view out the window. A glass enclosed studio space or office completes the interior space. But step out to the terrace and up the stairs to your dramatic and comfortable perch above it all. With sweeping river and skyline views and plenty of room to relax and take it all in. Fireworks, stargazing, or for a Friday afternoon glass of wine to finish off the week while the sun sets across the water. This is the home above all others.
