Located on coveted Plaza Street in a pristine Art Deco full-service doorman / elevator building, this apartment is on the 5th floor with South and East exposures. The living room and master bedroom windows face the front of the building, providing abundant Southern sunlight and unobstructed tree-top views of Grand Army Plaza and the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Arch.

This well-proportioned home features a large entry foyer (with built-in library), 9-foot-high ceilings, archways, moldings, and original/refinished ribboned parquet/hardwood floors. This home retains it's pre-war charm while blending seamlessly with a fresh, modern renovation. The sun-filled and oversized, corner master bedroom can comfortably fit a king-sized bed and ample furniture. The beautifully renovated, windowed bathroom features his & hers sinks, a customized double vanity with Ceasarstone countertops, Cifial thermostatic rainshower with handset and body sprays, Duravit tub, and lovely subtly textured Daltile. Equal care is given to the renovated eat-in-kitchen, which incorporates pure white Ceasarstone countertops, custom push-touch cabinets, a Bosch dishwasher and Kitchenaid range. This apartment boasts 6 ample closets throughout, including a large WIC off the entrance.

This pet-friendly building has a large, renovated and well-maintained laundry room available 24/7 with a huge lending library for residents, a children's playroom/lounge, personal storage cages, and bike storage in the basement. The same wonderful superintendent has lived onsite and served the building since 2003.

The location couldn't be better! Within steps of the 2/3 and a 5-minute walk to the Q/B trains, surrounded by an array of restaurants, boutiques, shops and services, right around the corner from a burgeoning restaurant scene on both Flatbush and Vanderbilt Avenues. A short walk to Prospect Park, the main Brooklyn Library, the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, and the weekend Greenmarket. Parking and Zipcars are available in the nearby Richard Meier building. This is a truly amazing place to call home!

NOTE: This apartment is a legal 1BR being effectively used as a 2BR, with windows and amazing sunlight in both bedrooms. The 2nd bedroom has served as a nursery for the past 2 years and can comfortably accommodate a child's bed with a dresser and chair.

More about Prospect Heights

More about Prospect Heights

While diminutive in size, Prospect Heights is home to some of Brooklyn's most renowned cultural institutions, including the world-class Brooklyn Museum, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, the Prospect Park Zoo, and the impressive Central Branch of the Brooklyn Public Library. Vanderbilt Avenue and Flatbush Avenue boast a dynamic selection of highly acclaimed restaurants, including Olmsted, Chuko Ramen, Morgan's Barbecue, and Geido, while Washington Avenue has a wide selection of lively bars, hip cafes and the legendary Tom's Restaurant - a beloved fixture in the neighborhood since 1936. On Saturday mornings, aspiring gourmets gather at the Grand Army Plaza Greenmarket to stock up on the freshest local ingredients. The quiet and leafy side streets offer a unique display of architecture with row after row of colorful townhouses and stately pre-war buildings along Plaza Street East and Eastern Parkway. Prospect Heights residents enjoy outdoor activities in both Prospect Park and neighboring Mount Prospect Park. This neighborhood is extremely accessible with access to multiple train lines and a major transportation hub at Atlantic Terminal. New housing development near the Barclays Center is spawning a sub-neighborhood of its very own called Pacific Park.
