Beautifully renovated and restored brownstones are a dime a dozen in Park Slope and Carroll Gardens, but the single-family housing stock in gentrifying Crown Heights has yet to see the same kind of demand. Most townhouses for sale in the neighborhood are multi-family buildings or homes that need some serious work, but is that ready to change? This 3,600-square-foot home at 834 Lincoln Place has just hit the market for $1.25 million. The owners spent the last six years renovating the 20-foot wide, four-story home to create a single family residence with five bedrooms, three and a half baths, a home office, and a landscaped garden.
The makeover restored the original pocket doors, parquet floors, tin ceilings, wainscoting, and beveled mirrors and completely upgraded the windows, doors, roof, facade, and electrical and plumbing systems. The brokerbabble details the design elements:
The kitchen, comprising half of the garden floor, has a dining area that can comfortably seat 10, 86 square feet of Corian counter space, dual-fuel convection range, and all of the other accoutrements of a high-end kitchen, not to mention Honey Maple Kraftmaid cabinetry, Australian cypress floors, and reverse osmosis water filtration system. This magnificent kitchen opens onto a lovely south-facing garden. The master bedroom suite comprises the entire top floor, including a walk-in closet that would make Carrie Bradshaw drool, soaking tub, heated Italian porcelain tile floor, in-ceiling surround sound theater system and many more stunning features.The townhouse isn't set to break records in the neighborhood?it's not even the most expensive home on the market in Crown Heights?but it's one of the only move-in ready single family homes available. Do you think it will fetch its full asking price?
