A four-story brownstone was converted from a three family into a contemporary single family residence by Lang Architecture, located in Brooklyn, New York. The original details were carefully retained and restored, while the back wall refinished to integrate floor to ceiling and wall to wall steel windows. The first level offers an office and den area with views out to a lovely garden. The second level which is the main entryway reached by a staircase from outside. Upon entrance you will notice a grand parlor featuring a living room with a custom window seat at the front of the house, with a large window facing the street. This looks like a nice, cozy little nook for curling up to read a good book! Beyond this space, at the back of the home is a beautiful, sunlit kitchen, showcasing floor to ceiling steel windows and a door that leads out to a brand new steel balcony, overlooking the garden.
Curving its way up to the bedroom levels is a beautifully restored, fine wood period staircase. The master bedroom en-suite overlooks the street, offering a restored fireplace, perfect for those chilly winter nights. The upper level houses two children’s bedrooms. There is one shared bathroom featured on this level, designed with white ceramic subway tiles and gorgeous cast iron light fixtures.

What We Love: The kitchen breakfast area for starters. Just take a look at all that natural light filtering through, what a great way to start your day! Loving the bench seating as well, perfect for extra seating when guests come for a visit. The preservation of the beautiful staircase that winds its way up through the levels is also swoon worthy. So many wonderful details in the beautiful townhouse. What do you think? What do you love most? Share with us your thoughts in the comments section below.
The master bathroom features custom steel and wood partitions that infuses warmth into the space and complements the marble slab and tile.
