About this Property
Welcome to 225 Kane Street, a stunning, 25' wide, single family townhouse on one of the most desirable blocks in Cobble Hill. 225 Kane checks all the boxes of what you are looking for in a townhouse: width, grandeur, a large garden that backs onto other gardens, original details and above all, a beautiful, tree-lined street in one of the quintessential neighborhoods of Brooklyn.
On the parlor floor, you enter a grand expanse meant to impress. And it does... with ceilings that are almost eleven-feet high, marble fireplaces and a surfeit of original Victorian detail like the pier mirror on the front wall and decorative ceiling moldings throughout. This room can go grand with its pocket doors thrown open to host a large party; or close the pocket doors and it can become the ideal backdrop for intimate book reading, small group gatherings or sipping an aged single malt in front of the wood-burning fireplace. All through this house, you can feel the presence of lives well-lived.
Moving on to the garden floor, you come upon the heart and soul of the house. A formal dining room large enough to host a sit down dinner party can be warmed by yet another wood-burning fireplace. A passageway connects the dining room to a huge, well-appointed kitchen that's a dream come true for the serious cook. Designed by a professional chef with a restaurant-grade vent and a large, marble topped island that is big enough to have a name, this inviting eat-in kitchen is comfortable enough for casual dining. During the daytime, golden light from the sun room filters in through the adjacent sun room. This sun room has a glass ceiling, and a double door that leads to a deliciously designed garden. Who needs a farmers' market when you've got plenty of room to grow your own?
On the upper two floors, you'll experience a bit of deja vu: both floors have similar configurations with a large bedroom at the back with views of the garden, and then two bedrooms facing the front, giving the house a total of six bedrooms. A full bath is at the top of the stairs on each floor.
The cellar houses the mechanicals, washer/dryer and provides ample storage. Towards the back is a unique circular feature thought to once be a cistern.
