266 Stuyvesant is a true nod to the rich, iconic cultural and architectural history of Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. Located on one of the most sought after, tree lined stretches of Stuyvesant Heights, this home represents the penultimate Brooklyn brownstone living.
Designed and built by Anzi Hill, father of Neo-Grec, 266 Stuyvesant is a perfect example of the pivot away from the previous, more fussy Italianate style. Pairing Neo-Grec with the new Aesthetic Movement of the time, Hill ushered in a more globally minded, pared back take on the row house and solidified a fresh new era in societal architectural and interior design sensibilities.
A century later, Hill’s astute design choices meld perfectly with the modern updates and finishes found inside of 266 Stuyvesant. Both worlds blend together effortlessly and provide a beautiful window into Brooklyn’s rich architectural history along with a keen eye for modern living.
At 20’x 45’ and just under 3500 generous square feet, 266 Stuyvesant is a two family with four spacious floors. The property is set up as a three bedroom plus bonus owner’s triplex over a one bedroom garden apartment. Both units have direct access to the backyard and eastern/western exposure with every room receiving ample natural light throughout the day.
Original details abound including Intricate, stripped wood moldings that adorn the parlor floor reminiscent of traditional Balinese woodwork and a beautiful nod to the global trend of the time. Unique wood and tile mantles and original wood floors can be found throughout along with several intact pocket doors and many pristine ceiling medallions.
266 Stuyvesant is a thoughtfully modern, design forward home that melds perfectly with the architect’s original vision making for a truly distinct property. Handpicked pasta tile and marble bathrooms, custom kitchen cabinetry, waterfall countertops and timeless, high end appliances and finishes round out this standout home making it a true standout and a must see.
A short jaunt to many cafes, bars, restaurants and grocery stores. Saraghina, Passion Fruit, Secret Garden, Trad Room, Halsey Market and Lunatico to name a few. A/C/M/J/Z lines, all easily accessible and 20 minutes to Manhattan.
