Contract Signed

Designed by one of the borough's finest 19th century architects, George P. Chappell, 5 Arlington Place is a grand and stately four story, two-unit, 20' X 45' Renaissance Revival style brownstone built in 1887. This exquisite home was recently restored from top to bottom to maximize every modern convenience for the discerning buyer while preserving its extensive original interior and exterior details. The new layout is superb, with desirable owner's five bedroom, 3.5 bathroom upper triplex and a high income one bedroom garden rental below. All mechanicals are new, including ducted HVAC, boiler, plumbing, electric and brand new windows; including fully restored period stained glass on multiple floors. Fully renovated with integrity and style, 5 Arlington is the rare opportunity to buy a turnkey Brooklyn dream home without any compromises.

Entering from the beautiful brownstone stoop, you are immediately swept away by the dramatic and wide parlor floor with a stunning central staircase and unique center hall. The whole house is dripping with original details, including restored plasterwork and beams, restored doors, window casings and fretwork, restored stained glass windows, and six original fireplaces mantles. The front parlor is an elegant living room centered around a gas fireplace with room for entertaining and relaxing. In the back parlor is an incredible and well-designed chef's kitchen with extensive custom cabinetry and multiple seating areas. It is built around a six burner Wolf range with a huge kitchen island and room for a large dining table, and a huge custom glass door which leads to the back terrace and private landscaped garden. One flight up is a small powder room, home Office or nursery, and the most luxurious master suite comprised of a giant full width bedroom with working gas fireplace and a dreamy 10' x 9' double walk in closet. En suite is a massive five fixture master bathroom with free standing two person tub and indulgent radiant floor heating. The top floor, with it's incredible 11' ceiling height houses three additional bedrooms, picturesque exposed original beams, two full baths, and a laundry room. On the fourth floor you will find a newly built staircase which leads to the exceptionally special landscaped roof deck with plumbing, lighting, and speakers. The breathtaking views span the Manhattan and Brooklyn Skyline - It's the perfect place to kick back or throw a party!

The Ground Floor rental unit has a private entrance accessed from under the front stoop. It has been redesigned to maximize rental income and renovated to the same high level of finish as the upper floors. The central kitchen has beautiful cabinetry, full sized appliances and tons of counter space, the living room and bedroom are huge and full width, and there's plenty of storage throughout. A coveted washer and dryer round out the amenities to appeal to a broad market of tenants or use by the owner and their guests. A small rear extension houses the marble bathroom, and a glass door lead to a small private patio garden. The full-sized & finished basement level has 7.5' ceilings and is accessible to both units (the upper triplex has the option to keep the basement private or share it with the garden apartment). There is space for all the mechanicals, a wine storage room, a screening room, or any multitude of uses.

Arlington Place, located in the famed Bedford Historic District, is one of the prettiest and smallest of the tree-lined "place" blocks of Bedford Stuyvesant. Recently converted to a one way street, thru traffic is almost non existent. The bespoke block is a moment away from the Nostrand A & C trains, which brings you to Lower Manhattan in under 15 minutes. Clinton Hill, Crown Heights, and Prospect Heights are all closeby, along with cafes, restaurants and shopping on Bedford and Franklin Avenues & Brooklyn beyond.
