Welcome to 78 S 3rd Street, a counterpoint to the cookie cutter big building condos built for everyman. This labor of love was designed and built for the discerning homeowner looking for something special, unique and extraordinary.
On this quiet side street in the middle of everything – townhouse living meets bespoke, boutique condo ownership. Our subject property on this under the radar block has already had her 15 minutes of fame – previously featured on Million Dollar Listing; this AIA award-winning trophy home awaits her next caretaker. That kind of ‘Been There, Done That” pedigree runs with the property – bragging rights like this are yours to pass on when you eventually sell your home. Effebiquattro doors with custom, imported handles signal quality and a high regard for design before you even set foot in your home. No corner was cut and no detail overlooked: five zones of high velocity central air with minimal ductwork, radiant heated solid oak floors; large capacity LG washer and vented gas dryer; in ceiling audio, KitchenAid in sink disposal. NEST smart home technology and double paned low-e windows lower your energy bills. The roster of fixtures and finishes is a Who’s Who of usual suspects (Sub Zero, Miele) and notable names from Monza and Milan, Italy. Your kitchen is a case study in Italian design. Thoughtful, optimized layouts offer pleasing proportions that just feel right – 21 feet of north facing frontage yields a floor plate wider than your average townhouse. Every square inch feels so much bigger when you have front to back lines of sight that extend 58 unobstructed feet, from the front of your living room to your rear window, and visually into the backyard. All square footage is not created equal. Full height sliders in your bedroom showcase south facing exposures for sunsets and bridge views. A completely detached building means no party walls and a window in every room. Your dividend is extra privacy and ambient daylight all day long and a second bridge view — 1,144sf of full floor living has never felt so grand, expansive and private. Nearby green space abounds: tend your veggies around the corner at hidden gem Berry St Community Garden. Domino Park, a six acre oasis of waterfront recreation and Brooklyn's answer to the High Line (brought to you by the same award winning designers), is down the block. Within a 30 minute walk is more than 100 acres of local parks, playgrounds, green space, and waterfront. Around the corner, PS 84 features Pre-K thru 8th grade education and dual language learning. Sunday in Brooklyn and 12 Chairs remain open. Misi and Tacocina are back in action. Need a special date night? Double Michelin Star Aska takes reservations. Centrally located to the JMZ, ferry, and newly reopened L train. Zip Cars, Citbikes and Revel scooters all nearby. While peerless quality, craftsmanship and design are this home’s selling points, low cc’s of $360 and monthly taxes of $164 makes this a value play as well.
Guided 3D tour walk thru available. In person showings by appointment.
