Brooklyn house description

This sunshine filled 1860s house was completely renovated one year ago as a one family home, with lovely details. Situated on a 20x100 foot lot the house is 2400 square feet and includes a 100 square foot deck off the kitchen and another off the garden level. Both decks overlook a large garden extensively planted with cutting flowers and a raised bed with organic vegetables.

The garden level has 2 offices, a full bathroom, and a large den. The den has a large television and a wrap around couch that pulls out into a queen size bed. The second floor has a large cooks kitchen with marble counters, stainless steel appliances, and Miele dishwasher. There is a large outdoor deck off the kitchen, visible through a wall of windows. The eating area connects to the living room where there is a wood burning fireplace. The whole floor is bathed in golden light from the southern facing windows. Up a winding staircase to the third floor, there is a large skylight above, allowing natural light to flow to the floor below. This floor has 2 large bedrooms and an alcove for writing, reading or sewing. There is a washing machine and dryer located in a linen closet. Each bedroom has a large closet. This floor also has a full bathroom with a window looking over the garden and a large soaking tub.

It is a great house for writers and artists; the light and quiet is inspiring. It is also a great house for kids as many activities can be going on at each different level. There are no other families or apartments in the building assuring complete privacy.
