    New Price $2,350,000 OPPORTUNITY KNOCKS. OH Wed 10-16 5-6pm By Appt. Only Grand, Glamorous, Restored, Serene and Great for Live/Work. 4 Story - 2 Fam Townhouse with a Loft-Like Feel....and huge garden. 686 Greene Ave is a unique combination of a Historic Brownstone and downtown loft living....offering you the best of both worlds. Situated on a lovely tree-lined street in Bedford Stuyvesant, a quintessential Brooklyn neighborhood, this home offers 3600 sq ft for living plus huge basement space. It is also across the street from Herbert Von King Park (one of the first parks in the history of Brooklyn, with a design submitted by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux) and in close proximity to transportation, shopping, cafes and restaurants. This is not your Cookie Cutter run-of-the-mill home. This dramatic and spacious home was renovated 10 years ago by two Brooklyn Artists /Designers on the cutting edge of design as an Owner's Upper Triplex plus hi-income 1 BR garden rental.....both units with access to the backyard. The Upper Triplex is a truly elegant and loft-like space with 4-5 Bedrooms and 2.5 baths. The parlor floor is an expansive Living Room plus Formal Dining Room and Country Style kitchen with custom-built 6 ft. soapstone sink & sideboard. Right off the kitchen is a huge sunny deck and stairs down to a lovely landscaped backyard with a tree and hammock for those lazy naps in the shade, as well as a lovely sunny sitting and planting area. Hi ceilings, big windows, lots of light, hardwood floors, gorgeous wood detailed bannister. Meticulously restored woodwork throughout including reclaimed wood floor and exposed beams. The upper two floors offer 4 good sized Bedrooms, plus a home office which could be a 5th Bedroom, 2.5 bathrooms plus a Great Room which could be a Media Room, Art Studio, Yoga Studio, or Work-At-Home Office space. The master bath is a truly luxurious space also custom-designed and built by the artists/owners. This Triplex was rented at $10,500 a month and will be delivered vacant. On the Garden Level.....there is a spacious and renovated 1 BR income producing apt. which could remain separate or be incorporated into the rest of the townhouse. This bright and spacious apartment has a huge open LR/DR/Kitchen area with great indoor-outdoor flow. 686 Greene Ave. is close to great restaurants like Warude, Boca Santa and Madame Poupon. Cafes such as Sincerely Tommy, Brooklyn Kettle and Little Roy Coffee. Neighborhood grocery stores include Ideal Food Basket and Healthy Organic Market. Easy street parking, and only a short distance to the G train. You won't find any other houses as tranquil, comfortable and easy to live and work in, especially if you need a large home + office space. Unique - Historic - Eclectic.
