Searching for a place with some good cooking vibes? Look no further than this Brooklyn townhouse, which was deemed perfect for filming a new cooking show, “America’s Best Home Cook,” hosted by chef Bobby Flay. The show pits “home cooks” in weekly competitions to determine the best in America.
The Bedford-Stuyvesant home, located at 44 Monroe St., Brooklyn, N.Y., 11238, is all exposed brick and stone walls with an open floor plan that centers, of course, around a spacious kitchen.
The building was constructed in 1899 and was recently restored, adding another three stories to the original dwelling. The listing notes the home’s capacity for entertaining -- which is likely why producers of Flay’s new show picked the property. According to Prudential Douglas Elliman director of PR Ashley Murphy, the home is being rented by the Food Network until the end of November.
After that, the townhouse is up for grabs for $1.65 million.
Besides a chef-worthy kitchen, the home has herringbone wood floors, exposed beams with walnut molding and a dining room closed off to the kitchen by glass French doors. Measuring 2,400 square feet, the home has 4 bedrooms, 2 baths and a generous terrace.
The listing is held by Jerry Minsky of Prudential Douglas Elliman.
According to Zillow’s home affordability calculator, a monthly payment on the home would be $5,751, assuming a 20 percent down payment on a 30-year mortgage.
