A Grand Cedar Street Brownstone is Ready for a New Journey


Originally built in 1890, this stunning 2022 new construction by Wolff Contracting and Development is in a space all its own and big on impact.

The expansive living room is crowned by the restored original coved molding with 11’ ceilings and the elegance of the restored staircase. The floor-to-ceiling porcelain fireplace centers the room with an abundance of light from a wall of windows.  A full wet bar installation with custom cabinetry opposite the glass and iron lift carries the eye to the dream kitchen.

Professional grade, the kitchen is anchored by an oversized 14-foot porcelain island with a lower seating section of custom-cut walnut wood creating an exceptional gathering space. The hood and upper cabinetry are covered in brass. Dacor range, refrigerator freezer and herringbone pattern hardwood flooring. The frosted glass treatment allows light and keeps privacy intact. 

The crisp white coffered ceilings over fully customized cabinetry fill the space on the next level. Millwork and built-ins are the room's focal points with the powerful use of stone at the fireplace surround and paper accenting the walls. The room has abundant light with full-length windows. A large landing and seating area allows for easy flow with the beauty of the staircase, framed glass doors, custom cabinetry and the glass lift. A full suite with a beautiful bath featuring white porcelain with gold inlay treatment.  

The primary level features a unique slab installation at the fireplace with beautiful views from a wall of windows. The primary dressing and spa-level bath areas are exceptional and artistry is on display. The large and bright dressing and closet area sparkle. Every inch of this space is unique. An additional suite and elegant bath finish this floor.

Offering a front and rear outdoor space is the next level. A wall of glass opens to the front outdoor space featuring remote overhead sun protection, a fire pit, a grilling area and a glass separating wall. Turf and stone finish the edges and add a landscaped yard feel. The restored and protected cupola is a nod to the history and significance of the neighborhood and home. The rear outdoor space is fully turfed and positioned at the perfect height to shield from any power line views.

The rooftop experience in both front and back is such a rare find. The Cupola adds a wonderful nod to the history of the home - Broker

On the lower level, local artisans delivered a fluid and bright experience throughout. The free-form pattern floor is unique and carries into the full space. Including a full-height glass wine cellar for 300 bottles. The front space includes a full-size murphy bed and has refrigeration, a dishwasher, storage and framed glass doors. Easy to finish as a separate apartment/suite.
