Welcome home to 233 12th Street: a beautiful, fully renovated, three family brick townhouse currently being used as a gracious single family home with an in law suite occupying half of the top floor. The home underwent a comprehensive, high end renovation in 2022, with a focus on energy efficiency, including a new high efficiency VRF heat pump system for heating and cooling, new Anderson A Series Casement Windows with custom wifi enable shades, a new roof with spray foam insulation, and new moisture resistant perimeter insulation throughout. In addition, the home received all new plumbing and electrical wiring with new wifi enabled Lutron lighting controls, and stunning new interior finishes including all new moldings and doors, refinished hardwood floors, sculptural modern lighting, and high end kitchens and baths, while still keeping elegant original details intact.


Up the stoop, new mahogany outer doors welcome you into an elegant entry foyer where the original wood paneling and encaustic tile pair beautifully with stylish new wallpaper and lighting. Once inside, recently rebuilt stairs accentuate the original banister and stunning newel post. At the front of the parlor level, a floor to ceiling bay window drenches the oversized living room in glimmering Southern light, further highlighting a stunning reclaimed marble mantle with exposed white brick behind it. Past the living room is the dining room offering plenty of space to host your next dinner party. The adjacent kitchen is also awash in light, opening up to the spacious backyard beyond. The tasteful kitchen renovation features all new appliances, including a Bertazzoni gas range, vented hood, Bosch dishwasher, and reverse osmosis water filtration system with insta hot. A large center island provides a place for people to gather, while ample custom cabinetry ensures you have room for everything. Aleanza Quartz counters and backsplash finish the space with a clean and serene look. A full bath completes the floor
One flight up, is the vast primary suite, complete with a sitting area, space for yoga and a full dressing room offering room for even the biggest fashionista's wardrobe. The expansive en suite bathroom features an oversized shower with double shower heads, and book matched Calacatta Vagli marble slabs with linear drainage system. The handsome double sink vanity offers plenty of room for storage, while Vola fixtures from Denmark, and Venetian plaster create a truly luxurious retreat. A separate water closet houses a Toto Neorest Toilet/Bidet. At the front of this floor is another large bedroom, with another charming bay window, and a sunny home office. A large hall closet can also be found on this level.

On the top floor, one finds another large bedroom and home office in the front of the home, identical to those immediately below. In the back, one finds a charming, one bedroom apartment, perfect for use as an in-law or aupair suite, or guest suite for visiting family or friends. Or simply use as an additional den or media room! The apartment features a newly renovated kitchen and bathroom, living and dining, and a bedroom, as well as several large storage closets throughout. The home also has a full basement, with a section that is semi finished, as well as separate storage and mechanical rooms. There is an additional full bath in the basement as well, and a new full sized GE washer and vented gas dryer in the laundry area. The basement also offers direct access to both the front and back yard, as well as interior access. The home has been fully wired for internet and most electronics are wifi compatible, including the hardwired smoke detectors, ADT security system Ring doorbell and Sonos recessed speakers on the parlor level. In addition, the entire home was repointed by the prior owners in 2015.
