Modern Living in Historic Crown Heights/Prospect Heights
Whether you are a new arrival, native Brooklynite, or something in between, you will appreciate the sleek design, cutting edge conveniences and unusual features of this home. The unique touches start with the entrance to the residence-the elevator opens right into the great room !
This modern, open concept living area is flanked by floor-to-ceiling windows with stunning natural light all day, and has plenty of room for living, dining and cooking. The kitchen has grey Caesarstone countertops and backsplashes, Bosch stainless steel appliances including a side-by-side refrigerator, European style white cabinet doors, and a newly installed garbage disposal. The kitchen's elegant, neutral design provides a perfect canvas for a variety of furniture and decorating styles in the living and dining areas. Plus, there's a private balcony with room to barbecue!
The king-sized master suite is to the right and features a walk through custom outfitted closet and en suite bath. The second bedroom is to the left on the other side of the residence, a nice privacy feature, past the second bath. Both baths feature Italian tile and radiant floor heating.
Need more? There's an efficient, in-unit Bosch washer/dryer as well as high-efficiency HVAC systems, which allow for individualized climate control in 4 separate zones. The great room accommodates two different temperatures at the same time! Housed in a boutique five unit condominium with very low common charges, building amenities include indoor bicycle racks, spacious storage units, wired for FIOS and finished roof access. There is a 421-a tax abatement until 2027.
Not to be missed, you're on the top floor -- the closest to the spacious, common roof deck hosting lounge chairs and dining area just one flight up. Owners can plant their own gardens or support the existing herb garden. The views from the roof deck, with the iconic Manhattan skyline to the west and the Brooklyn Museum of Art to the south, have to be seen to be believed.
Picture yourself coming home to all this after a full day exploring the vibrant neighborhood. Maybe you spent the day in Prospect Park or visited the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Had breakfast at the famed Tom's diner or dinner at one of the great restaurants on Vanderbilt, all within close proximity. If you must leave the area, the C train is a short 3 blocks away and you're into Manhattan in under 20 minutes. Next weekend you might spend the day checking out the trendy shops and restaurants up the street on Washington or close by on Franklin Avenue, maybe you'll take in a show or game at Barclays Center, just a few minutes away. Welcome home!
