Grandeur of yesteryear meets its contemporary match at 29 Schermerhorn Street. Masterfully restored and impressive in proportions, this single-family home in New York City’s oldest historic district – Brooklyn Heights – spreads its landmark beauty across six stories.
The home’s resplendent facade subtly envelops the exquisitely curated living experience within. The stately narrative of the home’s 5,660 square feet (of which some 830 below grade) as if foretells the luxury that awaits inside, where the lines between the classic esthetic and the modern-day finishes nimbly blur into a wholesome treat for the visitor and dweller alike.
Start your day luxuriating in any one of the 360 degrees of spectacular views from your rooftop patio. With age-old treetops, Verrazano Bridge and the Statue of Liberty at your beck and call, descend down to greet your guests or family on the topmost two floors of your home. Four individual bedroom suites and a laundry facility to support them occupy the floors above the very inner sanctum of your home further below.
The third floor is reserved for not only the master suite, but also for the sensational views of the garden brought in by oversized windows that bathe the level in sunlight. The master bath echoes the overarching design sentiment of the home’s lower levels through the tasteful use of Carrara marble. At the end opposite of the master suite is a smaller room, the daily purpose in life of which can span anywhere from a bedroom to a private office, sitting room, library, drawing or dressing room – entirely up to you.
The parlor-level’s ornate entryway unlocks the view of one of the elegant fireplaces that dot 29 Schermerhorn. The level effortlessly conveys the grand sense of scale deployed by its pre-war architect. Framed by soaring ceilings, large and open, the level hosts two seating areas and a spacious dining room equipped with a wet bar – a necessity for a willing (or even reluctant) entertainer. Allow your inner entertainment guru to develop and furnish these spaces as it suits it best – reception areas, front parlor, dining room, as noted on the floor plan – are but suggestions.
The garden level is reserved for a state-of-the-art chef's kitchen that seamlessly flows into the open exterior, as if inviting the garden in. Finished with white Carrara slab marble countertops and backsplashes, the kitchen incorporates into its plentiful offerings a stainless steel Viking 8-burner gas range, built-in wall microwave and single unit electric/convection, wine cooler, and side-by-side Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer.
The basement layout is just as remarkable as the rest of the home’s. The ceilings are over 8 feet in height, crowning five closets, bathroom, and a sizeable laundry room. The common area affords this level a potential for an exceedingly quiet home studio, office, media room or a multi-purpose recreation space. Despite the level being a basement, its large windows invite in the natural light. Finally, radiant heated floors, top-of-the-line video security and central air conditioning, zoned separately on each floor, are sure to delight that practical creature that resides in you. To end the tour of your new home, perhaps with a glass in hand, take the elevator up… and let the history become one with the present while you revel in the glorious sun setting down on New York City.
