Bask in architectural beauty and tranquility in this meticulously updated gorgeous garden-facing, two-bedroom, one-bathroom co-op with en suite bath potential in a historic Fort Greene building.
This exceptional home welcomes you with refinished floors, soaring 12-foot-tall ceilings, handsome millwork and delightful views overlooking the rear garden's blooming magnolias and dogwoods. Relax or entertain in the spacious living/dining room surrounded by southwest facing windows. Historic carved casements flank the extra-tall windows, and concealed brick here could easily be re-exposed, if desired. The updated open kitchen impresses with wood cabinetry, a new maple butcher block breakfast bar and upscale stainless steel appliances, including a five-burner gas range, built-in microwave and dishwasher.
Sleep soundly in the majestic primary bedroom where coffered ceilings are joined by ornate moldings and grand paneled wainscoting. A corner display case is ideal for books or artwork, while the adjacent projected bay makes for a wonderful home office or sitting area with privacy and blackout shades at the windows. Two massive, custom California and walk-in closets complete the space. The secondary bedroom boasts treetop views, custom closet, automatic blinds and a roomy closet, and the adjacent full bathroom offers gleaming subway tile, marble vanity and contemporary fixtures. A custom full length hall closet adds additional storage to the well-planned layout. This home's extensive updates include fully keyless entry thanks to electronic door locks, updated fixtures, dimmer switches for all lighting, new high-end ceiling fans in both bedrooms and new aesthetic radiator covers. This home is currently configured with one bathroom, but adjacent walk-in closets offer the opportunity to add a second bath (proposals acquired).
Situated within the Fort Greene Historic District, 26 South Oxford Street is a beautiful cooperative resulting from the 1893 combination of two separate buildings constructed decades earlier. Montrose Morris, one of the most respected architects of the day, oversaw the melding of buildings and added a stunning limestone façade featuring classical ornamentation. Residents of the well-run boutique building enjoy solid financials with no assessments, a newly refinished basement with dedicated resident storage, laundry room and bike or stroller storage under the stairs. Pets are allowed with board approval.
