Property Description

Welcome to the Thomas L. Bennett House originally built in the 1870's by Architect Frederick Junius Sterner for the Child family. This 17' wide brownstone is the equivalent of a 5 story building today due to the addition of a 1387 square foot cottage on the first floor. Both structures are now condominiums and fully renovated. This is truly a one of a kind listing and a fabulous opportunity to enjoy city living in comfort and style.

Today, the main house blends the best of traditional prewar and modern upgrades. There are sound proof windows throughout the entire home. The elegant parlor floor is a jewel with high ceilings, moldings, a wood burning fireplace, beautiful wood floors, a large bay window facing south, central air conditioning , a charming powder room and a full windowed kitchen.

The third floor has two very large bedrooms each with a wood burning fireplace, lovely molding, high ceilings, beautiful wood floors, open sunny views, an enormous linen closet and a full bathroom. There are thru the wall air conditioners in each room.

The fourth floor is configured as a formal study with a wood burning fireplace, beautiful wood floors, a large bedroom and two full bathrooms, a vented washer dryer and thru the wall air conditioning. The top fifth floor with thermostat controlled air conditioning and a gas fireplace transports you into an entirely different reality with a modern renovation offering everything you would want in a kitchen, dining room, den and terraced oasis. Top of the line appliances include a fully vented Wolf gas range, Miele dishwasher and microwave, a Subzero refrigerator, and a built-in large Thermador wine refrigerator. The middle island has storage, ample seating, a double sink and dishwasher. In short, no expense was spared; this house has it all.

The cottage apartment, which has a gated private entry is completely renovated in a tasteful and modern aesthetic. There is central air conditioning, soundproof windows, two beautifully designed and crafted bathrooms, a terrific kitchen with a new washer dryer, a wood burning fireplace and a delightful patio space with Trex flooring. The patio can be accessed through beautiful French double doors located in the hallway or the back bedroom.

The beauty of this package sale is that it offers a flexible lifestyle; one can live and work here luxuriously, create wealth through income or have a gorgeous second space for friends and family to enjoy.

The basement which can be accessed by either home has dry storage. All mechanicals are updated and inspected annually. The roof is in very good condition. Both condominium units are in ready move in condition. There are no violations or open permits. This is not a landmarked property. 152.5 is zoned as a community facility and 152 is R8B zoned.
