Serene, beautifully renovated, and filled with natural sunlight, this sprawling 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom home is perched on a high floor of a coveted full-service elevator/doorman building on Plaza Street. Effortlessly blending traditional pre-war details with modern conveniences and style, this residence is a rare find.
A gracious dining foyer with a large coat closet and built-in shelving leads the way into an expansive and inviting living room with open views overlooking treetops along Plaza Street. The thoughtfully designed windowed chef’s eat-in-kitchen is outfitted with a huge walk-in pantry, stainless steel appliances, tasteful stone countertops, custom cabinetry, a built-in microwave, a dishwasher, and a tile backsplash. A hallway leads to a king-size primary bedroom with ample closets and wraparound corner windows. Both windowed bathrooms are a retreat, featuring stylish tiling, custom shelving, and upgraded vanities and sinks. A spacious second bedroom has been configured into two comfortable children’s rooms with a transom wall. The airy unit is graced with refinished inlaid parquet and hardwood floors, crown moldings, high ceilings, and designer touches that include contemporary lighting and hardware. The intuitive layout lends itself to entertaining and ease of daily living.
20 Plaza Street East is one of Prospect Heights’ premier addresses. The Art Deco building features a professionally landscaped circular courtyard and a grand lobby with full-time concierge services. Residents enjoy a renovated laundry room available 24/7 with an extensive lending library, a children’s play room/lounge, bike storage, the option of Fios or Optimum, and a fantastic live-in super who has served the building since 2003.
Across the street from the 2/3 at Grand Army Plaza and merely blocks to the B/Q at 7th Avenue, surrounded by an array of restaurants, cafes, boutiques, grocery stores including the new Union Market, fitness centers (such as Crunch and SoulCycle), and services, the location is ideal. A short walk brings you to Prospect Park, the main branch of the Brooklyn Public Library, the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, the Brooklyn Museum, and the weekend Greenmarket. Parking and Zipcars are available in the nearby Richard Meier building. This is a truly an exceptional place to call home.
