Brooklyn Brownstone

This month’s episode of Move In or Move On brings us from these petite, affordable homes out west in Palm Springs to this gorgeously grand Brooklyn brownstone townhouse here on the east coast. Originally constructed in 1910, this Brooklyn brownstone is newly renovated with high-end finishes, modern technology, and impeccable details that honor its past. It still has the original staircase, which is a thing of beauty — check it out in my Instagram video that I made in partnership with StreetEasy. The 2820 square feet property is a two-family Brownstone, is on the market for $2.175million and features five bedrooms, three full bathrooms, one powder room, a large parlor deck, and backyard garden. Let’s kick off the tour… streeteasy Brooklyn brownstoneParlor Living Room

The moment I stepped inside this Brooklyn brownstone I could feel the sense of space and natural light, thanks to the 20-foot-wide foot print, 10.5-foot high ceilings and 47-foot parlor off a mosaic tiled entryway. There’s a wood-burning fireplace (hello!!!), mahogany stained windows boxes and beautiful molding throughout. The dining area would be a dream for entertaining, don’t you think? Speaking of entertaining, let’s check out the kitchen because it’s a dreaaaaam!streeteasy Brooklyn brownstoneChef’s Kitchen

OK, for most of us New Yorkers, a kitchen of this size (and quality!) really is a dream. There’s a three-seat island, custom cabinetry, and Caesarstone countertops (love!). There’s also a farmhouse sink (which reminded me of the one in our beach house kitchen) and stacks of high-end appliances like a Viking refrigerator and Wolf six-burner stove. Oh, to have an eat-in kitchen like this is in the city!streeteasy Brooklyn brownstoneMaster Bedroom Suite

Just like downstairs, the upstairs features the gorgeous 7-inch wide white oak floors, As well as the master, there are two additional bedrooms (with another two on the ground floor that offer a perfect income producing opportunity) and a full bath. The elegant master bedroom looks over townhouse’s the private garden through three large windows which also afford the space with lashings of natural light. I looooved the marble tile in the master bath, not to mention the oversized rain shower and deep-soaking tub. What do you love about this Brooklyn brownstone?

  1. I agree with you that the kitchen is the standout. The video on Instagram was fantastic, congratulations on the great work Will.

  2. Loved the video. Your point about the staircase is v.true, I hate it when developers rip features like that out.

    Great job as always Will!

    Markus 🙂

  3. I think I need to rethink my “I’ll never move to Brooklyn” motto 😉

  4. Hey Will, I just came across your blog yesterday! Love it, I’m always looking for new design tips and inspiration. I noticed you’ve included the farmhouse sinks a couple times now. No surprise – they keep trending up! It’s hard to tell from the photos, but both look to be a Shaws original farmhouse sink. Interesting history they have. They are made from the same mold, in the same factory in Lancashire, England, as they were when first unveiled to the public in the late 1800s. We have a collection with them but also the Nantucket sinks that are inspired by the classic cottage style of Cape Cod, I know you’ll love

    I love the post, and you’ve gained a new follower. Can’t wait to see what kind of bright ideas you have next.



    P.S The slider image on the beach house is super cool!
