Available for the first time in over 50 years! Step back in time as you enter 281 President Street, an exquisite two-family, four-story brownstone with 8 bedrooms and 3 full baths, overlooking Carroll Park at the intersection of Cobble Hill and Carroll Gardens. Built with the highest level of construction in 1899, this 20'+ by 48' home stands out with its pristine classic brownstone facade and preserved pre-war details which appear at every turn: high ceilings, parquet floors, original pocket doors, elaborate crown moldings, and stunning marble mantels. Enter up the classic front stoop through an expansive vestibule with marble tile floor and pier mirror into a picturesque foyer and parlor level. The living room stuns with 12 foot plus ceilings and intricate crown moldings and bathes in glowing southern light. Just off the kitchen, similar elements of pre-war character can be found in the formal dining room with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the back garden below. Stairs from the kitchen lead you down to an expansive private yard. The beautiful original banister will lead you up the staircase to the third floor where you'll find two spacious bedrooms each with a walk-in closet, an additional flexible room bedroom/office, and a full bath to complete this level. The south-facing bedroom enjoys sun all day as it overlooks the leafy trees and scenes from the park. The unusually high ceilings continue through this floor and onto the fourth floor of the home. Two more spacious bedrooms, a third smaller bedroom/office, and a full bath await. The north-facing bedroom's exposed beams follow the roofline and offer extraordinary views of low er Manhattan. As does the roof! The garden apartment, with its private entrance under the stoop, has two bedrooms and a very comfortable living space. Access to the garden is just off of the second bedroom. Both the boiler and hot water heater have been updated, and the roof is in great shape. 281 President Street is the classic Brooklyn brownstone you have been looking for Please reach out to us to schedule a private showing.
