Welcome to 255 Stuyvesant Ave – A Limestone like No Other! A rare Pre-War 19th Century Townhome Impeccably Restored for Modern Living Historic turn-of-the-century glamor beckons in this exquisite two-family luxury limestone townhome originally built among a row of charming houses in 1893 by prolific builder, E. H. Bishop. Every inch of this three-story, 4,635 sqft house has been painstakingly restored and renovated while keeping most old-world details intact or recreated to match the original design. Highlights include beautiful original inlay wood floors, pocket doors, pier mirrors, regal ceiling molding, dark mahogany woodwork and wainscoting, stained glass accents, ceiling medallions, and two stunning wood-burning fireplaces. The home also has brand new electrical and plumbing, double-insulated thermal break windows, brand new ducted zonal HVAC system, dimmer light switches throughout and two hot water heaters with an efficient recirculating system. Situated on one of the most sought-after blocks in Bedford-Stuyvesant, the home’s chic limestone façade with carved octagonal bay windows conceals pristine interiors suited for grand entertaining, intimate lounging, and everything in between. In addition to the beauty of this home the layout was designed for optimal functionality. The owner’s triplex has 4 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, a powder room and 2 sets of washers and dryers (including one in the basement exclusively for the homeowners) The grand west facing PARLOR floor boasts 10’6 ceiling, with an open living and dining room that can be separated with the alluring original pocket doors allowing you to close out the kitchen area when entertaining. The parlor floor includes Visual Comfort chandeliers and sconces perfectly placed throughout the home. The immaculate designer kitchen leads out onto a large private deck and is adorned with a huge eat-in island that stands 7.5 feet by 5.5 with marble countertops. The island features additional storage space and a wine cooler conveniently located close to the deck allowing you to easily grab a refreshing bottle of wine as you entertain guests on your deck and backyard. The kitchen also features a bevy of custom cabinets, a built-in pantry, a pot-filler, and high-end appliances including a 7-burner ILVE gas stove and griddle. This is a true showstopper kitchen at its finest! The SECOND floor is dedicated to a lavish primary suite with a king-size bedroom chamber, a home office, and a windowed en-suite bathroom, inspired by Vanessa Hudgens bathroom that was featured in Architectural Digest. The sanctuary creates a calming presence the moment you step in. The bathroom includes a working wood fireplace, double sinks, a touch less toilet with bidet and heated seat functionality, a freestanding 55" stone soaking tub, and a glass-enclosed walk-in rainfall shower with Brizo body jets. The THIRD floor contains three additional bedrooms and two large skylights allowing for optimal light. One bedroom has a full en-suite bathroom while the other two share a sizable additional full bathroom. If that’s not enough, you have a fully finished excavated basement with vinyl floor and over 7’0 ft ceilings with beautiful, exposed brick arches. Also in the basement is a beautifully designed speakeasy room, which would be a great way to unwind after a hectic day. The 1-bedroom, 1.5-bathroom GARDEN floor apartment is perfect for hosting guests and long-term relative stays or generating rental income. The unit includes a powder room, washer/dryer and access to a spacious backyard with exceptional privacy.
