Let's explore each part of the property in more detail:
When you enter 663 Putnam, you immediately notice the 19th-century moldings paired with modern light fixtures and marble detailing. You are greeted by an expansive living and dining parlor floor, flooded with natural light and soaring ceilings over 10 feet high. As you pass through the cozy dining room, you enter a sprawling and gorgeous kitchen renovated with top-of-the-line appliances and a chef's kitchen, ideal for entertaining and hosting next year's New Year's party! The kitchen opens up to a private deck with a barbecue grill and a dining area for al fresco dining, offering a delightful outdoor space overlooking your landscaped backyard garden.
One flight up are two spacious bedrooms, each with a matching ensuite white marble bathroom. Both rooms have ample closet space and each has its own fireplace. This floor features modern hanging light fixtures, crown moldings, oversized windows, and white brick fireplaces, which provide the nuanced charm that makes this Brooklyn townhouse feel like home.
On the third floor is the beautiful master suite, where sunlight pours through the double-pane, black-framed windows onto your white oak herringbone floors, which lead to an ensuite sky-lit marble bathroom with his and hers sinks, a deep soaking tub, and an oversized rainfall shower. Through the master bathroom is a home office, which can be used as a fourth bedroom, library, or den. Behind the library is an oversized, walk-through, windowed closet.
The 1,000+ square-foot garden unit is a floor-through, bright studio with a renovated bathroom. This unit features original hardwood floors paired with top-of-the-line Bosch kitchen appliances.
The 756-square-foot private garden has a 155-square-foot deck off the main kitchen that is accessible from both units. However, should the future owner desire, the space can easily be divided to include private outdoor areas for both units.
The 734-square-foot lower level has nearly 7-foot-high ceilings and houses a washer and dryer. The open studio space, currently dedicated for use by the owner's triplex, is perfect for a home gym, screening room, or playroom.
663 Putnam is located in close proximity to some of Brooklyn's best pizza and Italian eatery Saraghina, Michelin starred L'Antagoniste, Peaches Restaurant, Beso Bar, and many cafes, and shops along Malcolm X Boulevard, Lewis Avenue, and Halsey Street. Nearby subway lines A and C Train at Utica Ave make a fast commute to and from Downtown Brooklyn and Manhattan.
