About this Property
One of a kind 1899 impeccably renovated two-family masterpiece

This magnificent Landmarked, corner brownstone is guaranteed to exceed all expectations. Situated on a lovely tree-lined block at the corner of Macon Street, 1 Verona Place is an awe inspiring home crafted with the highest quality finishes and state-of-the-art execution. Developers Dahill and Bunce have again joined forces to create another exceptional Bedford-Stuyvesant home. They have completed a meticulous gut-renovation while maintaining the historic facade and staying true to the original architecture and spirit of the neighborhood. The workmanship, materials, construction and design are unparalleled and apparent throughout. The conversion includes: the installation of 25 Landmark approved, Jeld Wen windows, rift sawn white oak hardwood floors with walnut inlays, custom designed and milled moldings, window and door trims, handcrafted marble gas fireplaces, solid 2 1/4 inches thick wood doors, a rebuilt hand-brushed staircase, a turfstone garden, a private driveway, high-tech mechanical systems and a complete restoration of the facade, cornice and the surrounding original wrought iron fence. On a beautiful corner lot stands the impressive, towering facade. Round the corner, go up the grand staircase and enter the solid Mahogany door, designed in the original Neo Grec style. Through the vestibule and into the elegant foyer, you will find a modern rendition of the original staircase, completely rebuilt and hand brushed in black lacquer.

On the parlor level is an open kitchen and dining area which is flooded with natural light through corner windows. A marble gas fireplace creates the perfect ambience on a chilly morning or for an intimate dinner party. The chef’s kitchen has been hand-crafted with the highest quality fumed white oak cabinetry and statuary marble countertops. Paneled Thermador appliances seamlessly meld into the thoughtful design as well as an elegantly tucked away wine fridge. Off the kitchen, step down into your a private turf stone garden, ideal for outdoor dining.

The formal living room sits on the opposite end of the parlor floor. With nearly 11 foot ceilings and a charming bay window, this is the perfect retreat to entertain your guests and showcase your art. Accessed through remarkable 2 ¼ inch solid oak pocket doors is a jewel box powder room complete with impressive pedestal sink and stylish Flavor Paper wallpaper . Continue up the staircase, adorned with tailor made, 36 inch wainscoting to your master level featuring a master bedroom complemented with gorgeous treetop views. A custom walnut walk-in-closet is an added luxury. The windowed corner bath has been tastefully renovated and paired with stunning teak details and a mixture of polished and honed marble to beautifully reflect the light. A stall shower with Carrera Sanctuary modern brick tiles, dual sinks and Hansgrohe fixtures complete this special master bathroom. Also on the second floor is a quiet and sun-filled den with your second gas fireplace. Set with a stunning, hand-made walnut bookcase, fitted with LED lighting and bronze glass shelving, this corner oasis functions as a flexible living space perfect for den, sitting area or 4th bedroom.

On the top floor are two additional large bedrooms. The shape of the rooms gracefully follows the lines of the elegant Mansard roof and with two exposures, each bedroom is filled with spectacular sunlight. The bedrooms are separated by a luxurious windowed bath fit with deep soaking tub, stall shower, dual Mark Newsom sinks, and hex tile marble flooring . A vented out washer/dryer hook-up is also on this floor and situated behind gorgeous solid wood, black lacquer doors.

On the garden level is a second unit - a one bedroom duplex plus rec room- outfitted with the same high quality finishes found throughout the home, a perfect income producing rental or additional space/guest quarters for an end-user to utilize.

1 Verona Place is a unique opportunity that boasts over 3900 square feet of elegant living space with private parking, garden, multi-zone central heating and air conditioning system and best of all a painstakingly detailed renovation that is sure to live up to expectations of the most discerning buyer.
