Located where Brooklyn Heights meets Boerum Hill and Downtown Brooklyn, 267A State Street is a four-story modern, bright townhouse with three bedrooms + den, four bathrooms, play and media rooms, and expansive sun-lit entertaining spaces. Built in 2007 as part of Abby Hamlins award-winning 14 Townhouses, this home has been beautifully maintained and is in pristine condition. The facade of the home is white brick with copper accents, and in its 3,760 square feet combines dramatic, double-height entertaining space in an open plan layout with gracious bedrooms and modern bathrooms. Daylight floods the interior through 9-foot south facing windows, a 20 foot north facing glass wall, and a huge skylight above the wood and steel stair. At the garden level is a den that can easily be closed off as an additional bedroom with an adjacent bathroom, along with a huge Bulthaup kitchen featuring a gorgeous honed Basaltina island, five burner Bosch range, double wall ovens, and a tremendous amount of storage. Adjacent to the kitchen is a stunning dining room with a double height wall of glass and 20 foot ceiling height, all facing the garden. Sliding glass doors connect the landscaped backyard with the kitchen and dining room for outdoor dining and entertaining. The parlor floor has an incredibly lofty feel with three huge windows spanning the front living room, and a gorgeous second seating area centered around the wood burning fireplace. This lovely room overlooks the dining room below with views out to the garden. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms (one en-suite) and a large laundry area are on the third floor. All bedrooms occupy either the south or north end of the home, with a bright wall of windows across the width, and provide plenty of closet space. The master suite occupies the fourth floor, with a South-facing terrace on the opposite end of the floor. A dressing area from the bedroom leads to the master bath, with its deep soaking tub, double vanity and Carrara marble throughout. This floor also boasts a huge skylight drawing light into the entire house. The basement, with nearly 9-foot ceilings, has been finished into a truly functional and flexible space, with a media/playroom and a separate home gym. This historic block of State Street is an incredibly convenient location, near all major subway lines at Borough Hall and Jay Street/Metrotech, highly regarded restaurants and shops including Brooklyn Fare and Dekalb Market Hall, and all the new shopping, entertainment and dining destinations at City Point.
