They say that life imitates art, and such is the case at 535 1st Street, a bespoke 5-story townhouse located on a prime landmarked block in Brooklyn's Park Slope.

Commissioned by the award winning Leroy Street Studio and recently featured in Architectural Digest, this exquisitely crafted residence represents a tour de force in engineering and modern design and will please your senses at every turn with grand proportions and superb luxury details throughout . Built in the British Regency style, the stately limestone mansion with bowed front has been completely re-imagined, removing floor areas in the rear of the building to create dramatic double-height entertaining levels, each with soaring ceilings that showcase the owners extensive art collection. Walls of floor-to-ceiling movable glass connect you to nature, while fully irrigated planters and green roofs terrace up the rear facade echoing the garden at every level. More than just a home, this unique property is an immersive sensory experience that exceeds all expectations!

From the moment you enter through the street level stoop and gaze up at the sculptural modern staircase, you know you've arrived someplace special. The journey begins on the garden level entertaining floor where you'll find an incredible chef's kitchen, open dining area and a sunken media room with direct access to a magical landscaped garden. Designed by a professional chef with the ultimate functionality in mind, the restaurant-quality kitchen is "line-cook ready" with its impressive 18-foot center island clad in Imperial Danby marble. Endless custom-milled cabinetry fulfills all of your storage needs, while a handsome Blue Quartzite backsplash adds warmth and elegance to the room. Appliances are of the finest quality and include multiple SubZero refrigerators and freezer drawers, a 60-inch Wolf dual-fuel range with professional hood, and a 100-bottle Subzero wine refrigerator. All of the fittings are by Kallista including a wall-mounted pot filler and a dedicated faucet that provides filtered flat or sparkling water on demand. The open dining area easily accommodates 10-12 guests while nearby, Corinthian granite steps lead down to the sunken Media room with a wall of beautifully constructed oak bookshelves and an inviting gas fireplace. The entire room is surrounded by floor-to-ceiling movable glass walls that lead to the large, professionally landscaped garden with multiple seating areas, mature trees, fully-irrigated flower boxes and a large outdoor kitchen for the ultimate entertaining experience.

Continue upstairs to find the spectacular Living room with its soaring ceilings, gas fireplace and gallery-like walls with custom lighting ideal for displaying art. This remarkable room segues into an open library which features the home's signature sliding windows providing maximum natural light and a continued connection to the outdoors. In the library, every detail has been carefully considered and installed, with a custom oak ceiling, a wall of floor-to-ceiling bookshelves and bespoke parquet flooring laid in a cubist pattern evoking an Escher painting. The luxury continues in the sumptuous screening room, an intimate space with soundproof curtains and surround sound speakers providing the ultimate audio-visual experience. Overhead, a lacquered cobalt blue ceiling drenches the room in dramatic color, while a jewel box powder room is decorated with a glossy blue resin sink and ombre wallpaper by Calico.

Every inch of this incredible home has been custom crafted and curated with the utmost luxury and comfort in mind. From the extensive millwork, to the hand selected hardware, to the luxurious silk stair runner that embraces every tread, no expense was spared! And of course, you'll find all the amenities you would expect in a home of this caliber including multi-zoned heating and cooling, a whole-house air filtration system, a separate laundry room, a mud room entrance with dumbwaiter elevator and a state-of-the-art home automation system compatible with your smartphone, putting all lights, shades, temperature, audio and visual at the touch of your fingertips.

535 1st Street is a true masterpiece created over a four-year period by the esteemed architectural firm Leroy Street Studio whose bold vision and stunning design speaks to modern living at its most elevated level. Literally thousands of hours went into the planning and implementation of the design along with the requisite approval process resulting in the ultimate turn-key experience. Truly beyond the beyond!
