This recently renovated townhouse at 1051 Hancock Street in Bushwick offers luxurious features and finishes as well as outdoor space on four levels, from backyard to two terraces to finished roof deck. The vintage red brick exterior has a modern stoop and large, multi-paned windows.
The spacious, 3,200-square-foot home is configured as a duplex over a garden-floor simplex. There are 14-foot ceilings, clean lines and abundant space indoors and out. Finishes include marble and wide-plank white oak flooring.
The townhouse benefits from Smart Home technology, including energy-efficient LED lighting, a live camera/video intercom that is accessible via smartphone, central heating and cooling, and SONOS in-wall speakers that connect to a wall-mounted tablet.
The open-plan living area in the owner’s duplex consists of a great room and kitchen with exposed brick decorative fireplace, modern staircase with built-in storage, and oak-paneled ceiling with recessed lights.
The large kitchen features subway tile, white Shaker-style cabinetry, Ceasarstone countertops and stainless steel appliances. The latter include a five-burner range, kitchen island with sink, and a Samsung French-door refrigerator and dishwasher. There is also a powder room on this floor.
The second floor has its own terrace in the back, with a stairway leading down to the garden. The owner’s duplex has an abundance of outdoor space, with another terrace off the master suite on the top floor and a staircase leading up to the roof deck.
There are three bedrooms — two of which can accommodate a king-sized bed — and two full bathrooms on the top floor.
The en suite master bath is a study in relaxation, with white Carrara marble tile throughout, an oversized double sink and vanity, and rain shower with massage jets. All three bedrooms have walk-in closets, and a washer/dryer is conveniently located in a hall closet.
The ground-floor apartment has its own private entrance and two bedrooms, and the potential to generate a high rental income.
The home is close to the J and Z trains at the Halsey Street stop, and a variety of eateries and other venues, including the Platform Bar, Anda Lucia Bar, The Wilky, Toad Style Restaurant, Macdonough Café, Covert Coffee, Image Gallery and Stale Mater Gallery.
Listed by Jessica Peters and Stephanie O’Brien of Douglas Elliman, the townhouse is asking $1.649 million.
