If you have dreamt of having water views from the comfort of your very own Brooklyn Heights townhouse, then 10 Remsen Street promises to be a game changer. This magnificent townhouse situated on the cul-de-sac at the end of Remsen Street, across the street from the Promenade, is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to delight in water views while also enjoying over 5000 sf of living space in a 21' wide 5-bed, 4.5 bath townhouse with a roofdeck that features panoramic views of Manhattan and the East River. No expense was spared in the renovation of this home, designed by brownstone Brooklyn's renowned architect, Brendan Coburn. It promises to please buyers looking for perfectly proportioned light-filled rooms, with every modern amenity already put into place by the current owners, and the added WOW factor of water views from every room in the front of the house. Fully updated both inside and out, you will need only bring your decorator to make this generous home your own.

The aesthetics will appeal to lovers of old and new alike, and make the perfect backdrop for whatever style you fancy. Lending the kitchen a modern farmhouse vibe, the chef's kitchen on the parlor floor features 14' ceilings and blue/gray Shaker-style cabinetry. Paneled appliances include only the best: a 48" SubZero Fridge, Miele dishwasher, Thermador double oven, a Blue Star range and SubZero wine fridge. A quartz island and countertop offer incredible prep space, complemented by a white-mosaic backsplash. The kitchen offers space for grand entertaining and overlooks the garden through floor-to-ceiling bay windows. Head into the front parlor where city views come into focus through oversized windows that bathe the room in the warmth of sunsets. Sit your guests around a gas fireplace with modern appeal and old-world charm.

The layout of this home is perfection. Enter on the garden level into a mud-room, perfect for seasonal clothing and stroller ease. A guest bedroom and bath are situated away from the upper floors for privacy, and a large family room in back is perfect for a playroom with easy access to the yard. Keep the toys downstairs while you entertain on the parlor floor. Above the parlor floor is a lavish primary suite with a bedroom in back with garden views, two huge walk-in closets, and a sitting room and study in front. The primary bath offers a spa-like experience with its windowed glass-enclosed walk-in shower, double sinks, Travertine countertops and Bisazza mosaic floors. Head upstairs to the kids' floor where two sizable bedrooms both come complete with great closets AND their own accompanying studies. A Jack and Jill bath designed in Carrara marble is accessible from both bedrooms, offering each occupant their own vanity and lavatory. The laundry room on this floor makes doing chores a breeze. The next floor up features another generous bedroom/closet/study setup in back, while the front has been transformed into a magnificent sitting room, capitalizing on the best views in the house! The full bath shares a skylight with an adjacent wet bar with refrigerator drawers, dishwasher and icemaker for easy entertaining. A dramatic wood and steel staircase takes you up to the roofdeck through a windowed bulkhead. And of course, the view from the roofdeck is a front seat to the best fireworks' displays in all of the borough.

Timeless materials have been employed throughout and include stunning wood floors and staircases, a rich array of marbles, solid-core doors, Sugatsune nickel hardware, elegant moldings, and a suite of Danish modern lighting throughout from such classic designers as Louis Poulson, Le Klint, and Flos. Updated mechanicals include plumbing, electric, windows, shades, roof, and multi-zoned heating and cooling. The house has also been wired with internet, cable, speakers, Sonos amps and a music server. The garden is accessible from the kitchen AND the garden level, and thoughtfully planted with perennials. Near public and private schools, Montague Street, Brooklyn Bridge Park, and Atlantic Ave. Amenities.
