Description

An utterly modern yet warmly rustic retreat, 141.5 Nelson Street has one foot in the woods and the other in the city—right in the heart of brownstone Brooklyn.

Gut renovated in 2013, this four bedroom, 3000+ square foot, four-story townhouse is a beautiful meeting of materials—grainy live-edged wood set against original brick and contrasted with smooth polished concrete, glass, and steel. The home is brimming with a designer’s vision yet remains relaxed, inviting, and casual. The result is an alchemy of style and comfort, luxury and simplicity.

Enter the parlor level and step into an extended, elegant living area with a wood-burning fireplace, unique herringbone wooden inlay floor below and Workstead light fixture above. A second wood-burning fireplace warms up the open, brick-lined kitchen with its vast island and farmhouse sink, Wolf and Subzero appliances, open knotty-wood shelving, custom cabinetry, and brick backsplash.

As you make your way into the dining area, prepare to stop in your tracks—and cast your gaze upward. The back of the house is a soaring, double-height glass-and-steel wall that rises nearly 20 feet into the air and frames the lush trees beyond. Dining by these windows is like hiding in a glass treehouse with a Pelle bubble chandelier floating above.

If you’d prefer to take your meal outside, swing open the double French doors and step onto your terrace—or take the stairs down to the serene backyard with built-in benches, professional grade gas grill, prep area, and sink.

A sky-high brick wall and a powder room with a wood farmhouse door complete the first floor.

On the second floor, follow the original wide-plank pine floors to a family room awash with light from the back wall of windows, and a terrace overlooks the rear yard. A gas fireplace, exposed beams, exposed brick wall, and built-in bookshelves with thick, wood shelving make this room perfect for family movie nights by the fire. Two bedrooms, two full baths, and laundry finish off this floor.

The third floor is an aerie among the treetops. This quiet, bright, calming space has a large master bedroom with built-in wood shelves and an extra-wide-plank reclaimed wood floor that give the space a luxe cabin feel. A private 150 square foot terrace is a lovely spot for sipping morning coffee and reading the paper.

The master bath is something to behold. A large skylit space with a glass-doored water closet, plus bathtub and steam shower, will streamline the morning routine—or let you sink into a hot evening bath while gazing up at the stars. At the front of the house is a closet that redefines “walk-in.” At 15’8” x 9”, this windowed room—with a balcony! and an outdoor shower!—will make dressing up or kicking off your shoes for the night a sheer delight.

There’s only one thing that could improve upon 141.5 Nelson—a high-income one-bedroom rental unit on the garden level. This well-laid-out space includes an office, full bath, dishwasher, and backyard access.

Central air and radiant heat, open cellar, and paid parking across the street make this home as easy and complete as can be. Tucked into historic Carroll Gardens, yet a moment's walk to Frankies 457, Prime Meats, Buttermilk Channel, Court Street Grocers, and so very much more, 141.5 Nelson is amidst all that makes Brooklyn what it is, and just four short blocks to the F/G train.,An utterly modern yet warmly rustic retreat, 141.5 Nelson Street has one foot in the woods and the other in the city—right in the heart of brownstone Brooklyn.
