Serene, spacious, beautifully renovated, and filled with natural sunlight, this 1.5BR/1BA (legal 1BR) is perched on the top floor of a coveted full-service elevator/doorman building on Plaza Street. Effortlessly blending traditional pre-war details with modern conveniences and style, this home is a rare find.

A gracious foyer with built-in shelving and a large coat closet leads the way into the expansive and inviting living/dining room with open corner views towards the Manhattan skyline and the now historic landmarked former public school 9 annex on the corner of Vanderbilt Avenue and Sterling Place. The thoughtfully-designed windowed chef's kitchen is outfitted with stainless steel appliances including a Thermador Professional range, a GE Profile dishwasher, and GE Profile side-by-side refrigerator, as well as tasteful quartz countertops, a double sink, custom cabinetry, a built-in microwave, and a subway tile backsplash. A hallway leads to the king-size bedroom with ample closets and two windows with majestic open views, including a wraparound window. The windowed bathroom is a retreat, featuring striking royal blue penny tiling, custom shelving, and an upgraded vanity and sink. Adjacent to the foyer is a cozy nursery or study with a closet and transom windows, partitioned with solid sliding opaque glass doors. 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 pet-friendly 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, personal storage cages, 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.

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.
