Set on one of Greenwood Heights' best blocks, this three-bedroom, two-bathroom house is a delightful surprise in a historic neighborhood. Fully gutted and renovated in 2005, this 1901 house is updated to suit the modern Brooklyn buyer and is move-in ready with beautifully landscaped front and back gardens and interiors that feel like home.
The parlour floor features an open kitchen with butcher block countertops, wood cabinetry, a large island, and stainless steel appliances including a dishwasher, overlooking an inviting dining area for eight and an open living room. Sliding glass doors lead to a deck with steps down to the lovely garden, tastefully landscaped with hardy greenery and a paver path - creating the perfect balance of beauty and easy maintenance. The main level also includes a bathroom with shower and two-story skylight.
Upstairs, the master bedroom has an oversized skylight and Juliette balcony overlooking the garden, lending an airy, indoor-outdoor feel. With ceilings reaching 13' at the highest point, the effect is dramatic. The bath is spacious and skylit, outfitted with slate tiles and a luxurious soaking tub. Across the hall, two conjoined secondary bedrooms have a fun clubhouse vibe.
The house also features radiant floor heating, an efficient on-demand water heating system, thru-wall AC units, a fully vented large capacity Whirlpool washer/dryer, several skylights and front and back gardens. Last, an unfinished basement can be accessed from the front of the house or via an interior staircase- perfect for a workshop or extra storage.
Greenwood Heights is a quiet, community-oriented neighborhood that has recently been in the spotlight with a wave of small new condo developments. Rowhouses and small restaurants and shops still dominate the streetscape, but single family, updated houses are extremely rare. 277 21st Street is located just six blocks from the R train and minutes from both Prospect Park and Greenwood Cemetery - two of Brooklyn's largest green spaces. Mom-and-pop style businesses abound - some neighborhood favorites include Southside Coffee, Tin Cup Cafe, Lot2, Jeatjet, Freddy's Bar and Backroom, Sea Witch, and Korzo. Insulated yet vibrant, Greenwood is a neighborhood you'll quickly grow to love.
