Property Description

Timeless elegance, generous proportions, and graceful flow characterize this corner pre-war two-bedroom co-op with three exposures. A gracious entry foyer with a coat closet can function as a dining area or study and leads to the kitchen and airy living room. Entertain with panache and live in comfort in the cavernous and inviting jazz-age sunken living room with two windows letting in ambient light and tranquilly overlooking the courtyard. A gastronome’s delight, the Tuscan-inspired open-plan windowed kitchen has been tastefully renovated with granite countertops, tumbled travertine backsplash, stainless steel appliances, including a dishwasher, five-burner range, above-range microwave, and Fisher & Paykel bottom-freezer refrigerator, ample maple cabinetry with contemporary hardware, and a breakfast counter with space for two stools. Oenophiles will appreciate the built-in wine refrigerator. A sleek Scandinavian Asko washer-dryer housed in the kitchen is a welcome addition (with a nominal monthly water usage surcharge).

Replete with two separate bedrooms, two closets, including a linen closet, and a stylish bathroom, the bedroom wing is located down the corridor. The voluminous master bedroom offers dual oversize closets and two exposures with three windows and can accommodate a king-size bed along with furniture with plenty of room to spare, and the roomy, cheerful, and comfortable southwest-facing second bedroom is perfect as guest quarters, nursery, study, or library, offering a closet, two exposures, and adequate space for a full or queen-size bed. The bathroom has been timelessly updated with subway tiling and stylish accouterments including a Duravit sink and Toto toilet with a soft-close lid along with a glassed-in shower/soaking tub and the original built-in metal clothes hamper. Traditional pre-war details include pristine original parquet and hardwood flooring, plaster moldings, and high ceilings. Wiring for an ADT security system is in place.

Constructed in 1925, the stately pet-friendly pre-war building welcomes residents with lush landscaping and offers a part-time evening doorman, an elevator, communal laundry facilities, a tremendous communal courtyard and picnic area, storage (with a waitlist for an additional charge), complimentary bike storage, and a helpful and convivial resident superintendent. Nestled amid the opulent architecture of majestic Eastern Parkway in the heart of Prospect Heights, the sought-after building rests directly across from bucolic Mount Prospect Park (the borough’s best kept secret) and is a short distance from the finest culture and recreation that Brooklyn has to offer, including Prospect Park, Grand Army Plaza’s Saturday Greenmarket, Brooklyn Museum, the Brooklyn Public Library, Prospect Park Zoo, the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, and more. Enjoy effortless commutes with the 2/3 at Grand Army Plaza, 2/3/4/5 at Brooklyn Museum, and B/Q at 7th Avenue at your fingertips. The shops, cafes, restaurants, and conveniences of Vanderbilt, Flatbush, and Washington Avenues are within close proximity, as well. Zoned for PS 9 at present.
