It is hard to miss the imposing stone edifice of this circa 1850 Gothic church regally situated in the heart of Brooklyn Heights, But it is what you see when you step inside that makes this stunning home truly special. The twin oak doors of a private entrance open into a gracious foyer punctuated with a grand curved staircase. The church, now home, was converted into a coop in the 1970's for 10 exclusive owners. The ground floor of this corner duplex features a powder room with custom Cole & Son wallpaper, complete with a Bosch stackable washer/dryer. The centerpiece of the combination living room dining room is its slate framed wood burning fireplace, capped by hand hewn timber beaming. Immense stained glass windows face west and illuminate the space with soft jewel tones, creating a unique sense of calm and beauty. Truly unique,,,truly special! Off the living room is a bright, sunny, windowed galley kitchen with scraped wide plank oak flooring and first-rate appliances including Bosch and FisherPaykal. The aforementioned winding staircase, with its curved mahogany rail and wide polished treads, ascends past more illuminated jewel tone glass to the second level. There you find a balcony area over the staircase, which has been turned into a home office. The gracious master bedroom, (once the church's choir loft), features the most striking architectural element of the entire home: a great Gothic window which extends from the floor and arches dramatically to the ceiling above. The master bedroom features an en-suite bath decked out in custom imported Moroccan tile. A second bedroom features large closets and an en-suite bath. Central air throughout. Located just steps away from two of the city's most sought after private schools, and several major subway lines.
