Gorgeous Brownstone in the Heart of Brooklyn Heights!
283 Henry Street is an absolutely stunning 5-story, 6-bedroom brownstone with a rear garden, exquisite original details, and a rich storied past. This stately home is located on a lovely and carefully maintained tree-lined block, in the heart of the Brooklyn Heights historic district. With its vintage gas lights, waterfront vistas, and famous Promenade, Brooklyn Heights has a mystique that is unlike anywhere else. This imposing edifice at 283 Henry Street offers 6 perfectly proportioned bedrooms, and 4 bathrooms, all of which instantly convey a feeling of spatial luxury. Has been utilized as a single-family house for over 40 years. Perfect for entertaining, the magnificent parlor floor is spectacular in size and graciously opens up to a dramatic living room with high ceilings and breathtaking original stained glass windows. Many an elegant soiree has been held on this floor. Set on the opposite side of the living room is an impressive high ceiling sitting room/library. The parlor floor is enhanced by a regal curving staircase with a dark wood banister that rises to the uppermost level of the house. The 3rd floor is another masterpiece with a sumptuous master bedroom with expansive windows overlooking the serene garden below. A sizeable master bathroom separates the sprawling master bedroom from a gorgeous high ceiling sitting room/2nd enormous bedroom. There are 4 large roomy, light-filled bedrooms on the top two floors, with each floor containing its own bathroom. Fireplaces figure prominently throughout the home as do European style crown moldings. An overabundance of closets assures that there is no absence of storage space.
The garden floor is composed of an ideally suited den, a beautiful mirrored dining room with a chandelier and, for the inner chef in you, a vast chef's kitchen that includes a new Verona double oven, Whirlpool refrigerator, and a new Samsung dishwasher. There is a center island as well, for chopping and prepping. The kitchen affords a separate dining area that looks out to the garden. This verdant outdoor space is idyllic for repose, whether to relax with a cup of tea or to just observe the changing seasons.
A huge basement with washer, dryer, mechanicals, and tons of space for storage is on the very bottom level. Owner/broker.
