According to listing agent Helen Chee, “the only thing that’s cooler than the home’s whimsical details—floral wallpapers, striped marbles, and even gold leaf finishes—is that the owner did everything herself. It’s a true reflection of her personal style and love of the space.”
The bold brownstone is nestled in Brooklyn’s hip Bed-Stuy neighborhood, and the singer and her young son have called it home for the past six years. With a price tag of just under $2M, we’re guessing this one-of-a-kind abode won’t sit on the market for long.
The dramatic living room offers extra high ceilings, stained glass windows, wedding cake plaster ceiling fretwork, and a fireplace with imported Italian marble and gold leaf accents.
The dramatic dining room features authentic wood wainscoting and window shutters, as well as a mahogany fireplace, decorative ceiling, and raw silk wall covering.
Of the home’s four bedrooms, the master includes an original built-in wardrobe with decorative archways, while the parlor-level guest room offers baroque wallpaper and a marble wood-burning fireplace.
The insane en suite master bathroom boasts floor-to-ceiling imported Italian marble finishes, skylights, double vanities, and a decadent clawfoot soaking tub.
Just off the master suite, a smaller room (with another wood-burning fireplace and custom storage), is the perfect place for an office—or, in Santigold’s case, an adorable nursery.
In addition to a backyard garden and flagstone patio, the swanky spread includes a mahogany staircase, sliding doors, parquet wood floors, and a full basement (for extra storage), too.
