About this property
170 Herkimer was originally constructed in 1901. This newly renovated home is the perfect combination of high-end finishes, modern technology, and impeccable details, an honorable salute to its past. This townhouse is a two-family brownstone that features 6 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, 2 powder rooms, a large parlor deck, and an expansive backyard garden. From White Oak floors to original doors and exposed brick, attention to detail can be found throughout this well-appointed home. As you enter the owner's five-bedroom triplex, you are greeted by a welcoming foyer and an original door. Stepping into a 42-foot parlor, you realize the breadth of space as the 10.5-foot ceilings let the light radiate throughout the open floor plan to the full glass wall at the rear of the house. To the left, a formal living room area with a decorative fireplace and beautiful molding offers a great space for entertaining. To the right, is a large dining area and thoughtfully designed powder room. In the back, your kitchen features a three-seat island, decorative fireplace, custom cabinetry on both sides of the room, and quartz countertops. With a farmhouse sink and a full complement of appliances including a paneled refrigerator, Thermador six-burner stove, and microwave drawer, this kitchen is a chef's dream. On the second floor, you will find two bedrooms and one full bath. The elegant primary bedroom faces the serene backyard gardens and features three windows and a large walkthrough closet. The primary bathroom is adorned with a decorative fireplace, marble tiled floors, a tasteful double vanity, and a glass-enclosed shower room with a stand-alone tub and two rain shower systems. Toward the front of the house, is an office-sized bedroom, and in the hallway, you find an oversized laundry closet with a vented washer and dryer with space to add a linen closet. The top floor of this home has three bedrooms and two beautifully tiled bathrooms with skylights that are flooded with natural light. The private basement can be accessed through an interior staircase and is finished with textured tile floors and a powder room. It can easily be transformed into a playroom, home office, or artist studio. The separate garden floor one-bedroom unit can serve as an income-producing property or in-law apartment. From the built-in sound system to the original fireplace mantle and exposed brick, this home offers a perfect blend of new technology and original charm. This masterfully re-imagined townhouse is located in the border of Bedford Stuyvesant, Clinton Hill, and Crown Heights. You are moments away from great dining establishments such as Peaches Hot House, Uotora, Furman's Coffee, and David's Brisket House as well as Brower Park and St. Andrew's Playground.
