848 Union Street #2
Welcome to a truly family size living space that fills all your requirements: a classic brownstone duplex that speaks to your aesthetic, a super spacious layout, and a most convenient location!
First, the curb appeal: on a handsome tree-lined residential block, step up the newly power-washed stoop, a stoop that is yours alone as only apartment #2 enters here. Pass through original wooden doors with bevel edge windows, an entry foyer with original tile floor, a second original door opens to the entry hall and stairwell, this is the original high ceiling parlor floor, with professionally polished oak parquet floors starting here and continuing throughout the duplex. Immediately on your left is a long coat closet with dedicated space for boots and sport gear, and shelves overhead. Pocket doors open to a front parlor, a gracious living room with triple bay windows looking out onto the front garden; the center parlor serves as a formal dining room with plenty of space for holidays or any day, and plenty of light from the living room on one end and from the south facing kitchen window on the other. The spacious kitchen is so convenient, right behind the dining room, with a new Fisher&Paykel fridge tucked inside the doorway, for easy access to both kitchen and dining. Two rows newly refurbished white cabinets, glass front upper cabs, stainless steel sink, Whirlpool dishwasher, and GE 30″ gas range with convection oven. A hallway runs along here so you needn’t walk thru the dining to reach the kitchen, and vice versa, and on the opposite side of the hall is a full bath with a spacious walk in shower, with safety glass sliding doors, a tasteful pedestal sink, high ceiling and south facing window up above. There’s a linen closet here and also off the hall is an 8 × 10 bedroom with closet and south facing window perfect for your nanny or granny. Captive to the kitchen in the extension is a quiet private 9 × 12 room with two south facing windows, a perfect home office or studio.
Up the handsome wooden stair to the top floor, an original sky light graces the stairwell, and a hall runs front to back so you can access each room independently of the next. In the front is a large room with triple bay windows looking out onto the street, a room that works wonderfully as a sitting room/library/den, and next to it in the front is a hall room bedroom; in the center of this floor is a Queen sized bedroom with a double closet and south facing window, and behind this room in the extension is a quiet cozy 9 × 12 captive bedroom with a closet and two south facing windows. Across the hall is a huge bathroom with a fully refurbished original claw foot tub under a skylight, just imagine, and a pentagonal corner walk-in shower, a gracious pedestal sink, and a linen closet in the hall right outside the door, and a large separate laundry room, with side by side washer and dryer, a large and deep laundry sink, and a counter top for properly blocking your delicate items. There’s a door that closes and a window onto an air shaft so your laundry will benefit from natural light and air!
Stylish ceiling light fixtures and wall sconces in every room throughout both floors, and by the way, the parquet on this floor have ornate borders, something you don’t see everyday!
Electricity, heat, air conditioning, and cooking gas included in rent!
Your dog and cat are welcome here!
