559 Monroe Street
Originally constructed in 1905, this newly renovated home is the perfect combination of high-end finishes, modern technology, and impeccable details, an honorable salute to its past.
The townhouse is a 20-foot-wide, two family Brownstone with approximately 2850 square feet and features 5 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, 1 powder room, a large parlor deck, and expansive backyard garden. From wide plank American Walnut floors to original shutters and exposed brick, attention to detail can be found throughout this well-appointed home.
As you enter the owner's three bedroom duplex, you are greeted by a mosaic tiled foyer and an arched beveled glass door. Stepping into a 42-foot parlor, you realize the breadth of space as the 10.5-foot ceilings let the light radiate throughout the open floor plan. To the right, a formal living room area with wood burning fireplace; mahogany stained windows boxes; and beautiful molding offers a great space for entertaining. To the left, a large dining area and thoughtfully designed powder room. In the back, your kitchen features a three-seat island, decorative fireplace, custom cabinetry, and Carerra marble countertops. With farmhouse sink and a full complement of appliances including Viking refrigerator, Wolf five-burner stove, wine refrigerator, and microwave drawer, this kitchen is a chef's dream.
Upstairs you find three bedrooms and two full baths. The elegant master bedroom faces the serene backyard gardens and features three windows, a reading nook, and large closet space. The master bath is adorned with herringbone marble tiled floors, a tasteful double vanity, and a glass-enclosed rain shower. As you head down the hall, you pass the artistically tiled second bathroom adjacent to two comfortable bedrooms. All the closets are outfitted with rods and shelving and the bathrooms are finished with Toto toilets.
The private basement can be accessed through an interior staircase and is finished with textured tile floors and exposed brick columns. It can easily be transformed into a playroom, home office or artist studio. The separate garden floor two-bedroom unit can serve as an income-producing property or in-law apartment.
This masterfully reimagined townhouse is located on a beautiful, tree-lined block in the heart of Stuyvesant Heights. You are moments away from great establishments such as The Wilky, L'Antagoniste, Saraghina's, and Peaches as well as three local parks that feature playgrounds, basketball or tennis courts. Nearby public transportation includes the A/C & J trains or the Halsey B26, and JFK is a short 20min drive. Additionally, as you may know, the acclaimed coop school will be moving close by to the corner of Marcus Garvey and Gates.
