494 Warren - a grand, 20-foot-wide Greek Revival-period townhouse on a leafy, tree-lined street in historic Boerum Hill with a lush, enchanting backyard with peach and cherry trees, grape vines, and blueberry and raspberry bushes.
This stately legal 4-unit residence, currently configured as a 3-unit home, features an owners triplex with central air that spans the finished basement, garden-level and parlor floors. The inviting parlor features high ceilings, built-in shelving, and a bright, airy floor plan ideal for entertaining and spacious living with large, open living and dining rooms, one bathroom and a windowed kitchen. Dine, barbecue or just enjoy some respite on the spacious deck which leads down to the gardens. The backyard is also host to a large, weather-proof vaulted walk-in shed that can be used for additional storage. The garden level contains a second bathroom with a jacuzzi tub and separate shower, 2 bedrooms and a small bonus room, while the finished basement features a large recreational room and a spacious laundry and ironing room.
The top two floors each feature full-floor, spacious, separately metered Junior-4 apartments, with side rooms that can alternatively serve as a nursery, study, walk-in closet or spare bedroom.
The property is an ideal investment for a developer or home owner that may wish to expand, as it has an additional 1,721 of unused buildable square feet with R6 zoning according to city records (subject to building codes and restrictions).
Close to the vibrant and trendy restaurant and shopping district on Smith Street and the Barclays Center, this quiet one-block stretch of Warren Street remains isolated from noise and traffic and maintains a wonderful sense of community. It has close proximity to the F & G subway lines at the Bergen Street station and the 2,3,4,5,N,Q,R,D,B lines at the Atlantic Barclays Center station entrance on 4th Avenue and Pacific.
While this classical residence reminiscent of old Brooklyn has been tenderly cared for by its owners, the future of 494 Warren beckons as it continues its journey through time into the borough's 21st century renaissance.
