Polhemus, 96 Amity Street - Cobble Hill, New York


The Polhemus Townhouses are composed of eight individual addresses on coveted Amity Street, a location that reflects the epitome of Brooklyn style, charm and convenience among the magnificent historic brownstones and carriage homes of Cobble Hill and Brooklyn Heights.
This magnificent 20' home features custom inlay at entry, eight-inch-wide plank solid fumed oak hardwood flooring with radiant heat, framed door passages and architecturally crafted millwork reflecting a chevron motif. Residents and guests have the luxury of exploring the six levels by way of a spiral stairway or the private elevator with woven-pattern millwork.
A culinary work of art with an oversized cooking island and a layout designed for entertaining, the gracious, open layout accommodates a custom built-in banquette and an Entertainment Pantry with an integrated wet bar and an under-counter double-drawer beverage refrigerator. The chef's kitchen is outfitted with state-of-the-art, integrated Gaggenau appliances, including refrigerator and freezer, gas cooktop, dual-wall ovens, dishwasher, and microwave drawer. The culinary island is finished with Supergrey quartzite countertops and includes a stainless steel under-counter wine refrigerator.
The great room defines modern drama, enhanced by 20-foot ceilings, eight-inch-wide plank solid fumed oak hardwood flooring with radiant heat, and two-story window walls that overlook the private garden. The mezzanine level, with an optional custom built-in marble and oak bar, expands the entertainment space with room for a grand piano, art library, and a screening room. Outside, a lawn of one's own, featuring gracious proportions, large enough to accommodate an outdoor kitchen, a fireplace, cabana-style seating, and an alfresco dining table. Surrounded with teak and stone pavers, the private garden is warmed by the southern exposure and seamlessly connected to the two-story Great Room. A hallmark feature is the base of the elliptical staircase, providing an intriguing backdrop to an optional custom built-in marble and oak bar. This level includes a guest bedroom with en suite bath, ideal as an in-residence office or staff accommodations.
The master retreat, an indulgent full-floor sanctuary that includes a windowed six-fixture master bath experience, features a freestanding Maggia deep soaking tub, separate double showers, and a fully appointed dressing room, all stylishly finished with Danube marble floors and vanity tops, hand-cut gunmetal mosaic tile walls, and custom-designed pendant lighting in a satin nickel finish. The 17-foot wardrobe runway connects the bath to the oversized master bedroom, with a sun terrace, overlooking the parlour-level garden. Elegantly swathed in Black Absolute porcelain tile floors with Stone Grey accent walls, the windowed secondary bath overlooks Amity Street and features a Kohler deep soaking tub and a Duravit wall-mounted toilet. The powder room, inspired by nature, is the focal point of this sleek jewel box with eight-inch-wide plank solid fumed oak hardwood flooring is the textured Nublado-tiled accent wall and the custom wall-mounted vanity with a Nublado marble vanity top.
Luminous with natural light and accessorized with dual terraces, the atelier may be one of the most coveted private entertainment spaces in New York City. The Atelier layout offers the flexibility to customize the experience with a wet bar, dining table, lounge furniture, and even leisure pursuits including billiards or ping-pong. The terraces are pre-wired for electricity, allowing for an outdoor cinema underneath the stars.
The unique characteristics of The Polhemus Townhouses extend beyond the design, reflecting the ingenuity of innovative planning and the desire to create a true community that offers an array of full-services. At the foundation of each townhome is a Concourse level offering immediate access to the Underground Mews, which features a private garage space for each home and a paved lane offering sheltered access to the Beaux-Arts landmark Polhemus Residences.
