If you're looking for a turnkey, stylishly renovated townhouse in brownstone Brooklyn (and have several hundred thousand dollars for a down payment), this Cobble Hill listing checks all those boxes and more. Listed for $4,600,000, 293 Warren St. has four bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, and lots of deluxe touches. 

The owners renovated in 2013, replacing every wall and floor, as well as the wiring and plumbing systems and the roof. They also installed new windows and soundproofing. The new floors are wide-plank European oak, and there is custom millwork, molding, and trim, plus a Nest thermostat. 

The garden floor includes a mudroom, a sitting area, and a chef's kitchen. The kitchen has a breakfast bar, a Viking six-burner stove, granite countertops, a wine chest, and recessed lighting. Bi-fold doors open to a tiered garden with bluestone pavers, landscaping, lighting, and an irrigation system. 

The parlor floor has a separate foyer, and the living room area has a custom-milled mantel, a fireplace, built-in shelving, and large windows offering a view of the garden. This level also has a powder room and an elegant center staircase with a skylight.

The bedrooms are on the top floor, and the master has a walk-in closet with a dressing room and a spa-like bathroom with marble walls, a granite floor, and a soaking tub. The washer-dryer is on this floor as well.

The neighborhood is hard to beat in terms of convenience and recreation. The house is two blocks from the F and G trains at Bergen Street, and the Borough Hall station is a short walk away. Shopping options nearby include Trader Joe's and Union Market, and there are lots of bars and restaurants in the area.
