Townhouse: 221 79th Street, Brooklyn NY 11209, Bay Ridge Townhouse
SHOWINGS BY APPOINTMENT Bay Ridge, 221 79th Street Brooklyn, NY 11209 is an incredible, fully renovated 4 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath fully detached home that offers an ideal blend of old world details, modern conveniences and a touch of history.
To begin, at 2472 SF, this home is an incredible value offering twice the space of a comparably priced condo or co-op in Brownstone Brooklyn or Manhattan.
Built circa 1920 on a 3800 SF lot, this fully detached three story home with private heated driveway and climate-controlled garage is truly a great find. Originally constructed as a Dutch Colonial, the exterior facade has been completely redone to a Tudor-style finish with high quality Pella windows, new insulation and welcoming front porch. This luxurious 20’x50’ home has a formal entry foyer, living room, formal dining room with working fireplace, eat-in-kitchen, 5 bedrooms (currently configured to 4 + media room), 3.5 bathrooms and a recreation room in the basement.
Walk up the expansive covered porch and enter the beautiful entry with restored original woodwork, stained glass, crown moldings, plaster ceiling medallions, built-in settee and original double-sided staircase that greets you like a work of art.
To the left, enter the fully restored parlor floor with formal living room and a dining room featuring original hardwood pocket doors, working fireplace, original cupboards, stained glass and woodwork. Just behind the dining room to the right is a lovely powder room with penny tile floor. To the left you will find a modern eat-in kitchen with granite tile floor, stainless steel appliances and granite countertops, blending beautifully with the rest of this home’s original charm. Through the back door lies a deck overlooking a lovely backyard that has a built in Solaire BBQ, refrigerator and sink, a garden, and plenty of space to spread out - perfect for entertaining family and friends. You can even pick your own peaches, nectarines, figs and persimmons from your fruit trees!
The second floor includes 3 generously sized bedrooms each with beautiful hardwood floors and amazing custom designed cedar lined closets, a media room that can act as a 4th bedroom, and marble bathroom with a beautiful claw foot soaking tub and separate stall shower.
The third floor is a master suite - the crème of the crop. This space offers a complete sanctuary from the outside world. This lovey suite includes a gas fireplace, wet bar, office nook, 2 walk in closets, 2 additional closets, built-in Bose sound system, ceiling fan, master bath with double vanity, soaking tub and separate stall shower. What else? Sit on your private balcony, read a book, listen to birds chirp, toast some marshmallows on your fire pit, or do nothing at all. This is your respite from a busy life.
In the basement you will find a full laundry room, the 3rd bath that includes a rain shower with steam room, Jacuzzi whirlpool bathtub and a thoughtfully designed recreational room with a mahogany and marble bar that rivals an Upper East Side hotel lounge.
Completely rebuilt and restored features include: · Heating system replacement · Complete flagstone and mortar façade replacement · Slate roof · Pella windows · Raised roof · 3 zone Central Air · New appliances · New boiler & water heater · New plumbing & electric · Solid cherry wood doors, restored baseboards & casings throughout · ADT security system · Separate video surveillance system, managed by smartphone or TV · Built in Bose music system · Custom Hunter Douglass window treatment · Large capacity washer and dryer Still not enough? In this home hides a very important part of 1970’s New York pop culture history. 41 years ago a young John Travolta sat in the very same dining room and begged his annoyed dad not to touch his hair! Yes, correct. This is the very home the movie Saturday Night Fever was filmed back in 1978. And, while much of the house has been restored and renovated the main floor still remains intact. Perhaps if you listen carefully in the quiet of the night you, may just hear the Bee Gee singing ‘Stayin’ Alive’.
Bay Ridge is a wonderful, diverse neighborhood with great restaurants and shopping. Besides its fun pop culture history, this home sits on a beautiful tree-lined street, located just off of Third Avenue with easy access to transportation. The R train 77th Street is 3 blocks away. The X27 Express bus stops at Shore Rd and 79th Street with the first stop at Battery Place in lower Manhattan. The NYC Ferry at the 69th Street Pier takes approximately 40 minutes to Wall Street, stopping in these Brooklyn locations: Bay Ridge- Sunset Park – Red Hook- Brooklyn Bridge Park Pier 6- Dumbo Pier 1- Wall Street.
