On a lovely tree-lined block, 353 State Street is part of a modern row house development finished in a pleasant neo-Georgian style. The semi-detached, four-story, two-family red brick home has a high stoop, mullioned windows and arched front door.
It’s set up as a quadruplex over a garden-level floor-through apartment. On the top of the house, set back so it is not visible from the street, is a rooftop penthouse with terraces fore and aft.
The penthouse aerie features a charming pavilion-like space with a wet bar and ample space for entertaining. A state-of-the-art elevator connects to all the owner’s levels from the cellar to the penthouse.
At the top of the stoop is a bright, spacious great room with a fireplace. It leads into an equally light-flooded Scavolini-designed eat-in kitchen with double freezer, double dishwasher and other high-end appliances.
A bay window overlooks the garden, and a door opens onto a stair leading down to the lovely landscaped garden. There is also a powder room on this floor.
Upstairs, a pair of bedrooms and baths flank the elegantly detailed and windowed stairwell. Two more bedrooms, including a huge master bedroom with tree-top views and elegantly appointed spa like bathroom, round out the fourth floor.
The income-producing garden apartment is finished to the same standards and offers a roomy one-bedroom layout with a sleek open kitchen and a sweet windowed dining area. Below, a beautifully finished cellar contains utilities, storage and space for a rec room, art studio, wine cellar or gym.
Amenities throughout include individual room zones for central AC and heat. State of the art construction and insulation maximize energy efficiency and comfort, and landed the house LEED Gold status.
The well-proportioned garden can be accessed via stairs from either the sunny eat-in kitchen or finished basement. It features a unique and private walkway to a garage where parking can be rented, making groceries and luggage far less of a hassle than usual. The seller is offering to pay for a year of parking.
The neighborhood is a stretch of handsomely preserved brownstones adjacent to some of Brooklyn’s best dining and shopping, as well as Barclays Center, the Brooklyn Academy of Music and the vitality of Atlantic Avenue. The A, C, G, 2, 3, 4 and 5 trains and the LIRR are nearby, making this a commuter’s dream.
See it for yourself at an open house this Sunday, February 10 from 2 to 4 p.m.
Myrel Glick, Martha Ellman and Elavia Bello at Douglas Elliman have the listing. The home is asking $4.19 million.
