About 165 Diamond Street

If an HGTV producer gave you a blank check to re-do your townhouse and start from scratch, the ideal end-point would be a home not unlike this one: a thoughtfully laid out floor plan, utilizing every square inch. A grand common area with front to back lines of sight, extending through the wall of windows, brings the outdoors inside. This 18x49’ three story, two family townhouse is an owners’ duplex over a garden apartment rental, situated on an 18x100’ lot. Built circa 1901, it was gutted to the sticks and tastefully renovated in 2014 – all 2,646 gorgeous square feet. The parlor floor is an open concept living room/dining room/island kitchen with a wall of slider windows that extend the room visually to the deck and down to the yard. Exposed beams and brick adorn the kitchen. A Carrara marble waterfall island allows you to orchestrate dinner like a maestro and then hold court with your party guests. A ½ bath water closet is tucked under the staircase, as is a clever storage closet. Above are three beds and two baths (one en-suite to the master, separated by the walk-in closet – a sky lit rainforest shower/soaking tub and radiant heated floors provide a spa-like vibe). A third skylight, bordered in stain glass, illuminates the staircase and the hallway study. Stain glass accents are repeated in the foyer transom. Below is a market rate tenant in a one-bedroom garden apartment. The home owners have gotten numerous inquiries from location scouts -- a lucrative perk of living near TV sound stages. The home has already had a cameo in Blue Bloods.Your Yard -- All Decked Out! From the elevated deck, take in your morning coffee and watch the grass grow. Or enjoy a second mimosa in your pajamas -- no judgments! This is your private, tree-shaded yard. Your sanctuary, like Superman’s Fortress of Solitude. Your 0.018 acres of manicured green! The ideal spot for a longneck beer on a long summer day. To what highest and best use will you designate your lawn? Laps in a kiddie pool? Horseshoe wagers and lawn darts? Practicing your croquet? An archery range for junior? Pin~ata birthday parties? Mix and match to design your summer triathlon. Sorry, tree house and tire swing not included. The theme inside: light and height, with modern unfussy fixtures. Central air keeps you cool like Fonzie. • Bosch appliances, Kohler faucets, Lacava sinks, Toto toilets• Walnut hardwood will floor you and your guests.• 11’ ceilings • A quarry of Carrara marble – the kind from which Michelangelo sculpted his David – was used to tile and counter the kitchens and bathrooms – even in the rental. Your home is conveniently located in central Greenpoint. Cafe Grumpy is steps from your stoop -- grab a latte to go on your way to McGolrick Park farmer’s market. Five Leaves restaurant is less than five minutes on foot. So is Slick Willie, Scalino, Le Fond, and El Born. Five minutes further are The Bounty, Dar525, and McCarren Park. Yogis rejoice at Lucent Yoga Studio one block away. Grab a late night work out at the Greenpoint YMCA -- they never close! Walkable to more than 95 acres of local parks, playgrounds, green space, and waterfront, it’s no wonder Greenpoint is a most sought after destination for Brooklyn home buyers.
