Create a Three or Four Bedroom in this Clinton Hill-Border 1500sf Penthouse Duplex Condo with Outdoor Space & Super Low Carrying Charges
A true 3 or 4 Bedroom is a rare animal these days and luckily this oversized 1500sf 2 bedroom Penthouse can be easily modified to create a 3 or 4 bedroom/3 bath unit. The apartment is unusal and beautiful in that it resembles more of a Tribeca warehouse loft than a typical Brooklyn apartment. It has the classic attributes of an industrial loft: soaring 15 foot ceilings, a huge expansive 28 foot "Great Room" first floor with a wall of five foot high windows, original factory wood floors, and last but not least, exposed brick walls and exposed massive ceiling beams. The great room on the first level is where one could add more bedrooms and even another bath so your bedroom count could be 3 or 4 in total, (see attached potential layouts in floorplans) .
The present layout is a split 2 bedroom/2 bath with an en suite master bedroom and bath upstairs and the former dining room is being used as the second bedroom downstairs. The living area on the first floor is all open and includes a 15 foot kitchen, a large 28 foot by 21 foot living room with enough space for a separate large dining table and home office. The kitchen is a true chefs kitchen with Wenge cabinetry, tons of cabinets, prep space and an 8 foot center island with a white caesarstone-type countertop. Appliances are the stainless steel Frigidaire Professional Series: side by side fridge, a 32 inch stove and dishwasher. There is additional storage in the 10 foot pantry behind the kitchen. The stacked washer/drier is located there and the Hvac for both air and heat, is in another nearby closet. Plus, there's a deeded storage space in the basement.The two baths are a clean and classic design and have white subway tile, slate mosaic floors and Duravit fixtures and fittings.The downstairs has a soaking tub whereas upstairs, it is a full bath with a shower.
Upstairs you can lie in bed and watch the sun rise: the master bed room has a 15 foot wall that's mostly glass leading out to the first of 2 roof terraces, measuring about 29 feet by 20 ft, about 600sf and then the 2nd roof terrace is up an exterior stair to that second 600sf area. They both are planked and have exceptional views including the Brooklyn Bridge and the Empire State Building.95 Lexington is the former Trolley Museum of New York and is a well maintained, and a well run established condo since 2008. There are 20 units and the apartment has low carrying charges of $1000 per month and real estate taxes are super low at $250 per month due to A J51 that will remain in effect until 2028. And, it is investor friendly, pet friendly and pied-a-terre friendly. And, 10 percent down is allowed.The building is located just steps off Classon Avenue , the official Clinton Hill border. You are close by to many of the local favorites restaurants like Speedy Romeo, Choice Market,The Finch, and Bedford Hall. The historic Frederick Olmstead & Calvert Vaux designed Fort Greene Park is a short walk away. Transportation wise, It is close to the G train at Classon Ave or the C train at Fulton and Washington Ave. Additionally, cultural happenings at BAM or antiquing at the Brooklyn Flea are nearby.
