145 Saint Marks Avenue

$3,850,000 145 Saint Marks Avenue, New York City, NY 11238
Built in 1901, 145 St. Marks offers the rare opportunity to own a piece of history set along one of the most desirable streets in the heart of Prospect Heights.

Conscientiously renovated and lovingly restored by the current owners, this 20 ft. wide, four-story, elegant home offers the perfect blend of period specific brownstone living with modern convenience. From gorgeous restoration of the original Mahogany millwork and oak flooring throughout to the addition of central heating/air, solar roof and integrated sound system as well as updated plumbing, electrical and new Jeld-wen wood framed, double insulated windows, no portion of this home was left untouched.

The parlour floor of the residence is entered via a gracious formal entry leading into a double depth living area featuring impressive 11 ft. ceiling heights, wood burning fireplace and meticulously reconditioned, double width doors.

An open plan kitchen brings chef caliber attributes together with contemporary design. Featuring a seven burner Wolf Range with dual ovens, custom white lacquer, frosted glass cabinetry and a central prep island clad in black Italian marble, the seamless transition to an expansive formal dining room and walk out terrace proffers the ultimate in entertaining opportunity and family/friend gatherings.

The luxuriant private quarters provide four generously proportioned bedrooms spread across two floors, three featuring cast iron, decorative fireplaces. Graciously designed with built in cabinetry and an offset, king sized bed nook, the primary bedroom offers spaciousness rarely experienced in these homes. The two full baths, featuring radiant heated flooring, and large laundry room round out the upper two floors of the home.

Nestled within the picturesque backdrop of the adjoining homes' gardens, the beautifully landscaped yard, replete with maintenance free Kentucky bluegrass replicated lawn, raised planter bed surround and blue stone patio, provide utmost privacy in an idyllic setting for relaxing at home escapes.

Currently configured as a legal two family, the garden level one-bedroom apartment provides a perfect space for live in family members, an income opportunity or may be recaptured, along with the cellar, to expand the already spacious main living quarters of the floors above.

The exterior of this elegant Italianate brownstone presents graceful period details from its original facade and stone stoop adorned with cast iron railings to its channeled cornice.

This historically significant home is steps from Prospect Park / Grand Army Plaza, Brooklyn Museum & Botanic Gardens and Barclay Center as well as the dining and shopping establishments that make this neighborhood the most desirable throughout Brooklyn.
