Can a home exude a shimmery glow and still be tastefully understated? Absolutely 724 Decatur radiates just that. Built in 1895 in the Renaissance Revival style, and now restored beautifully and respectfully keeping its character and history alive while injecting chic modernism for livability and peace of mind. Live the lux-life in your 3 bedroom duplex while collecting rent from the spacious garden apartment. The triple-parlor floorplan features five original mantles, three sets of pocket doors, handsome crown molding and medallions, pale oak parquetry and strip flooring, original window and door trim and these historic details are all the more gorgeous supported by new plumbing and electric, new windows, new roof and new kitchens and baths and much, much more. Entering the foyer, the original graphic-patterned encaustic tile floor is showcased. Once inside, the stairwell, decorative newel post, wood trim provide warmth simply and beautifully. The interior woodwork has been stripped and refinished to a pale mahogany hue, and the original parquetry floors have been given new life without sacrificing their lovely patina. The pocket doors leading into the front parlor have unusual asymmetrical glass panels almost deco-like, but the main focal point of the room is the original columned mantle with overmantle. A cased opening leads into the center parlor; just like in 1895, the front parlor is currently used as a formal entertaining space while the center parlor is a comfortable lounge. Another set of pocket doors leads into the rear parlor to the south-facing dining room. With a second original columned mantle bathed in sunlight, this room will be a place memories are made. French doors to the rear deck and garden further bring the outdoors in. Just off the dining room is the modern, yet thoroughly charming kitchen. The bespoke cabinetry is British Standard by Plain English, painted their classic Broken White but can be brush-painted to suit. The countertops are honed Carrera marble with an apron-front sink, and butcher block. Beautiful form and function are indulged with the black Lacanche Cormatine Dual Fuel range featuring an electric convection oven and gas cooktop. It's a chefs dream along with the integrated Leibherr refrigerator/freezer and integrated Bosch dishwasher. Finally, located just off the kitchen but with just enough privacy is the guest powder room. A restored JL Mott sink and bronze base makes a room that is too often an afterthought, a true feature. JL Mott manufactured the Cadillac of sinks in its day and the new custom brass hardware adds distinctive 21st century flair. Heading upstairs there are three bedrooms and two full baths where the architectural detailing are as intact as they are on the parlor floor. Each of the large rooms has its own original mantle, ceiling medallions, wood window and door trim, and original floors. The primary suite encompasses the two front rooms separated by a set of pocket doors. The ensuite bath is built for two, featuring a custom marble vanity with double sinks outfitted with brass Waterworks hardware. The huge double shower features twin brass rain shower heads, and radiant heated marble hex floors will keep you cozy all winter. The secondary bath features yet another restored JL Mott sink with custom brass hardware and a restored clawfoot tub. The spacious garden unit is a fully renovated open floor plan. The last of the five mantles is the focal point of the large living/dining room. New French doors lead into a good-sized bedroom with exposed brick, and the all new kitchen includes rich blue cabinets, an integrated dishwasher and butcherblock countertops. Beyond the kitchen is a bonus room that is large enough to be used as a second bedroom, office or mud room and features new French oak wood flooring. 724 Decatur Street is located at the east end of Bed Stuy at the border of Bushwick, minutes aways from the JZ train and a short stroll to the AC and L trains. Saratoga Park and Marion Hopkinson Playground are each three short blocks away. Enjoy the best eateries, bars and shopping of both neighborhoods such as Sonora, Lady Moo Moo, September Caf, The Tiny Cupboard, Maya Fusion Caf, The Evergreen, Love Nelly, Little Skips East. Several grocery stores, an organic market and other daily conveniences are all within a block or two from home; plus a plethora of shopping on Broadway
