Property Description

As soon as you open the front door of 78 Rogers Avenue on to the hand-laid penny tile entryway, you know you’re somewhere special. This single family home, just off Crown Heights’ cool and bustling Franklin Avenue, has a perfect blend of preserved original detail and clever custom upgrades, courtesy of architect Luki Anderson of Studio Officina. <p> The living room, with its beautiful tin ceilings and vintage woodwork, leads onto the huge dine-in kitchen with an encaustic cement tile floor and plain-sawn white oak cabinetry built by local craftsman Robert Burke. Directly off the kitchen is the deck, running the full width of the house and overlooking the garden. <p> Up the balustraded staircase, bathed in natural light from the top floor skylight, you have the primary bedroom with built-in closets and a skylit en suite bathroom with beautifully tiled floor. The second (also skylit, with yet another beautifully tiled floor) bathroom serves another two equal-sized bedrooms, one with its original fireplace. <p> The garden level is currently a working artist’s studio and home office, but will make a perfect fourth bedroom, with another full bathroom, and a living room with a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding doors that open onto the landscaped garden. This private back yard has a patio large enough for lounging and outdoor dining, and the curated perennial plantings and mature trees create a tranquil oasis. <p> 78 Rogers has been fully gut renovated, with all-new copper-piped plumbing and all-new electricals with a power upgrade. The full-height, cement-floored basement houses a washer and dryer, and a new gas boiler and water heater. The main beam and columns have been replaced, the joists replaced or reinforced, and the brickwork repointed. <p> This one-of-a-kind townhouse is located in the heart of Crown Heights, where you can savor the culinary delights of nearby restaurants like Colina Cuervo, Cafe Rue Dix, Chavela’s, and Two Saints, with Brooklyn Children’s Museum, Brower Park, and excellent shopping also close by. Transportation options are the 2, 3, 4, and 5 trains at Nostrand Avenue, the B45 and B49 buses, plus multiple Citibike docking stations. <p> First open house this Sunday by appointment, 12pm-1:30pm.
