About this Property
Dynamic developers Dahill & Bunce have perfected the modern interpretation of a classic Brooklyn brownstone. The landmark renovation of this 1882 Neo-Grec townhouse results in a three-bedroom, 2.5 bath upper triplex with a separate garden level apartment totaling approximately 4,000 SQFT, plus a renovated cellar. This 20-foot wide townhouse with an extension and an additional top master floor sits on a 100-foot lot with five private outdoor areas throughout.<br><br>The highlights of 158 Halsey are the meticulous details, and the millwork is the absolute star. Hallways and stairs are wrapped in European high gloss Curmi wainscoting panels with a hand brushed treatment. Naturally finished doors at the parlor level are fabricated from book-matched fumed white oak with hand-brushed raised panels. Doorjambs, surrounds, casings, cast plaster rosettes, corbels, wood pediments and crown molding profiles are all lovingly designed in-house by Dahill & Bunce. Throughout, floors are fumed rift-sawn white oak with walnut borders and detailing.<br><br>The parlor floor imagines a lifestyle of cooking, entertaining and leisure. Kitchen cabinets and the island incorporate jewel-box design elements crafted in a dark fumed white oak veneer with touch latch drawers and doors.
