Elegran Real Estate

159 6th Avenue

Just off Saint John's Place in the heart of North Slope, this expertly renovated two family, 21 foot wide brownstone offers incredible details and style in the most perfect of settings.

The attributes of this townhouse are many. Enter the parlor floor of the owner's triplex to an oversized living room dining room with wood-burning fireplace, one of two working fireplaces in the home. All of the woodwork and details have been restored and the 11 foot ceilings serve to enhance the overall space.

The kitchen affords all of the high end amenities: custom cabinetry and hardware with Viking stove and Miele refrigerator and dishwasher and the all-important wine fridge. An enormous center island provides abundant casual setting and prep space. There is also a banquette surrounded by additional storage for larger gatherings. A wall of windows and french door with large transom window above extends the living area to a generous terrace with the stairs down to the lushly planted garden (irrigation and drip-system for plants) complete with dogwood, hydrangea and a lovely herb garden. One of the rare qualities is the open exposures this townhouse provides with views south, west and north through to the gardens of Lincoln and St. John's Place. Also on this floor is a powder room which is expertly tucked away off the kitchen.

The third floor of the house provides an oversized master bedroom with separate dressing room and so many closets/storage space. This room with lovely decorative fireplace and mantle and a lovely en-suite bathroom overlooks the tranquil gardens. The bath is appointed with Hans Grohe and Duravit fixtures and basket weave and penny round marble tile. There is both an oversize stall shower as well as a deep soaking tub. The two front rooms on this floor offer a very spacious family room/study also with a working fireplace, beautiful mantle and a additional bedroom which can also be used as a home office or for guests.

Up to the fourth floor there are two generous bedrooms one currently used as a playroom, again there are spacious closets between both rooms and two full baths The first with stackable washer/dryer again with an oversized tub also with basket weave marble and white subway tile. The second bedroom which would be perfect for an In-law suite also has a stall shower with similar marble tile accents and white subway tile. Again, as on the third floor of this home, the sixth and final bedroom can be used for guests or as a study/office.

All systems have been updated/upgraded including plumbing and electric and new wide planked oak floors throughout. The triplex affords central AC and heat with ten separate zones. There is recessed lighting and custom fixtures throughout as well as a large skylight on the top floor which floods the house with light. The facade was completely restored in 2017.

As the house is 21 feet wide the generous proportions allow for a two bedroom rental on the first floor overlooking the garden This unit is also in mint condition(the house will be delivered vacant). Currently rented for $3,500/mth. This floor has garden access and many of the same custom features found throughout the rest of this wonderful home.

The location is so convenient to the shops and restaurants along 5th and 7th Avenues and to the Q as well as 2/3 subway lines. Just moments to the Botanic Garden and wonderful Prospect Park.
