A ONE-OF-A-KIND TOWNHOUSE

194 MACDONOUGH STREET | STUYVESANT HEIGHTS

I am so thrilled to be representing this one-of-a-kind, two-family townhouse with Pamela Wolfe (my Corcoran partner on this listing). Built in 1887, and now a landmarked home on one of the most picturesque brownstone-lined blocks in Brooklyn’s Stuyvesant Heights, it has undergone an unprecedented restoration and renovation that gives me pride of home when I show it. The design intent was to return this townhouse’s grandeur while also giving the new homeowners luxurious, modern day living.

What I love most is the perfect blend of historic and modern. With reverence paid to its historic past, many of the 19th century details have been meticulously restored, including 5 working fireplaces with carved mantles and pier mirrors, plantation shutters, fretwork window casings, pocket doors, and ceiling medallions. One of the most stunning aspects of the townhouse is its stately proportions which just cannot be seen in photos unfortunately. With its 9′-11′ ft ceilings throughout, wide rooms and over-sized windows, the entire home is filled with natural light and feels expansive.

The townhouse is set up as an owner’s upper triplex with five bedrooms, 3.5 baths, a terrace and backyard, as well as, a one bedroom garden level apartment with private terrace.

The kitchen clearly has a clean, Scandanavian aesthetic – my favorite design element being the wood cabinets and island that integrate so nicely with the historic window casings. Three of the bedrooms have wood-burning fireplaces (one of them in the sitting room of the master suite). A truly beautiful and luxurious feature!
