Prospect Heights Brownstone

Posted on Wed, 25 May 2016 by midcenturyjo

The restoration of this New York Brownstone saw floors replaced, windows reinstalled, doors rebuilt and all the boring but very important services updated. It had been a wreck but in the hands of Brent Allen Buck of Brooklyn-based Buck Projects the late 19th century building became a home again, its Italianate features restored to their former glory while a new focus was placed on modern open plan living. Think mod cons with a mid century collection of furniture and all the while the beautiful old bones grounding it all. “Approached with sensitivity, today can rise to be the equal of yesterday.”

I love the outside. The rest is too bland for me. I think it's the flooring; it looks cheap. 🙁

FLS says:

Love the spare, clean style. I'm ready to move in.

Kiki says:

Wow! Absolutely stunning! Every single detail, I'm ready to move in too! 😉

Love this house. OK a couple of pieces of furniture look a little uncomfortable, but I love the whole light & airy look with the light wood floor. That bathroom is now my new dream bathroom.

Jared Hayden says:

Owning a mint piece of historic real estate like that is like the holy grail to many New Yorkers. I've seen what the years, sub-dividing and circumstance can do to those houses, and I think they did a superb and thoughtful job of bringing it into the present.

Packing my bags as I write. Amazing place.

Maggie says:

It looks so relaxing and I just want to pad around all day barefoot on those soft smooth looking wood floors. Mattress on the floor though, not so much…
