A brand new two-family townhouse boasting contemporary finishes and an income-
producing rental unit, 199 Halsey Street is a chic portrait of contemporary
Brooklyn living. Features of the home include a lovely redbrick façade,
gorgeous hardwood floors, central heating and cooling, in-unit washers/dryers,
a finished cellar with a powder room, a sublime owner’s triplex, and multiple
outdoor spaces including a deck, a balcony, a rooftop terrace, and a lush
backyard with new fencing and an integrated sprinkler system.
The owner’s triplex has 5 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, and begins on the parlor
floor. Beyond a tiled entryway foyer, the home flows into an open, floor-
through living room, dining room, and kitchen. The kitchen leads out onto a
deck that overlooks the backyard and is equipped with an eat-in waterfall
island, sleek marble countertops, a subway tile backsplash, and a suite of
high-end stainless steel appliances from LG.
The second floor contains the master suite, a laundry closet, and an
additional bedroom. The master has his-and-hers walk-in closets, and a
pristine en-suite bathroom with double sinks, a step-in shower, and a separate
soaking tub. The second bedroom has a large reach-in closet and direct access
to a windowed full bathroom. The remaining three bedrooms sit on the third
floor. Each has private closet space and share access to a windowed full
bathroom. One of the bedrooms has an attached balcony, and another has a
charming sky light.
The garden level rental unit has 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, a separate entrance,
a laundry closet, and an open-concept living room, dining room, and kitchen.
The all-white kitchen is equipped with an eat-in peninsula, sleek countertops
and backsplashes, and a suite of LG stainless steel appliances. Each bedroom
has a large reach-in closet, and one of them has access to the backyard.
Situated in Bedford-Stuyvesant, 199 Halsey Street is just a half-block from
all the restaurants, cafes, bars, and grocery stores that line Tompkins and
Marcy Avenues. It is across the street from Potomac Playground, and is about a
