An idyllic expression of townhouse living, this light-filled Neo-Grec brownstone has been carefully adapted to modern sensibilities while retaining its original grandeur. Built c. 1880 by prolific Stuyvesant Heights builder Charles Isbill, this 2-family house is configured as a single-family, spanning 4 stories and approximately 3,400 SQFT on a 20x100 foot lot. Atop its grand stoop with original newel post and railings, find a double parlor with two original wood and tile mantels, 11 ft ceilings, and a pier mirror augmented by a full bath. The renovated kitchen on the garden level features a Bertazzoni range, Fisher and Paykel refrigerator and Silestone quartz countertops. Off the kitchen, find a deck with a lushly planted, landscaped garden steeped in natural light. A below-stoop entrance, library, and full bath complete the garden level. The second floor provides two bedrooms featuring original marble mantels and a full ensuite bath wrought in Calcutta marble. An additional third floor of open studio-loft space with a full bath and ample storage tops this thoughtfully renovated home. 408 Macon Street is move-in ready, with updated mechanicals throughout, a new cast iron gas boiler, and new chimneys. The immaculate cellar is completed by a laundry room and powder room. Located in the beautiful Stuyvesant Heights historic district and off Lewis Avenue, neighborhood amenities abound. Peaches, Saraghina, LunAtico, Mama Fox, Skal and more are at your doorstep. The A and C trains are just blocks away at Utica Avenue, providing express service to Manhattan.
