Timeless elegance, generous proportions, and graceful flow characterize this corner pre-war two-bedroom co-op with three exposures. A gracious entry foyer with a coat closet can function as a dining area or study and leads to the kitchen and airy living room. Entertain with panache and live in comfort in the cavernous and inviting jazz-age sunken living room with two windows letting in ambient light and tranquilly overlooking the courtyard. Inspired by the warm earth tones of the Tuscan countryside, the windowed chef's kitchen has been tastefully and intelligently designed with granite countertops, tumbled travertine backsplash, ample maple cabinetry with contemporary hardware, a breakfast counter with space for two stools, and stainless steel appliances that include a five-burner range, above-range microwave, dishwasher, Fisher & Paykel bottom-freezer refrigerator, and a built-in wine cooler that will be appreciated by oenophiles. A sleek Scandinavian Asko washer-dryer housed in the kitchen is a welcome addition (with a nominal monthly water usage surcharge).

Comprised of two separate bedrooms, two closets, including a linen closet, and a stylish bathroom, the bedroom wing is located down the corridor. The voluminous master bedroom offers dual oversize closets and two exposures with three windows and can accommodate a king-size bed along with furniture with plenty of room to spare, and the roomy, cheerful, and comfortable southwest-facing second bedroom is perfect as guest quarters, nursery, study, or library, offering a closet, two exposures, and adequate space for a full or queen-size bed. The bathroom has been stylishly updated with subway tiling and designer accouterments including a Duravit sink and Toto toilet with a soft-close lid along with a glassed-in shower/soaking tub and the original built-in metal clothes hamper. Traditional pre-war details include pristine original parquet and hardwood flooring, plaster moldings, and high ceilings. Wiring for an ADT security system is in place.

Constructed in 1925, the stately pet-friendly pre-war building welcomes residents with lush landscaping and offers a part-time evening doorman, an elevator, communal laundry facilities, a tremendous common courtyard and picnic area, storage (with a waitlist for an additional charge), complimentary bike storage, and a helpful and convivial resident superintendent. Nestled amid the opulent architecture of majestic Eastern Parkway in the heart of Prospect Heights, the sought-after building rests directly across from bucolic Mount Prospect Park (the borough’s best kept secret) and is a short distance from the finest culture and recreation that Brooklyn has to offer, including Prospect Park, Grand Army Plaza's Saturday Greenmarket, Brooklyn Museum, the Brooklyn Public Library, Prospect Park Zoo, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and more. Enjoy effortless commutes with the 2/3 at Grand Army Plaza, 2/3/4/5 at Brooklyn Museum, and B/Q at 7th Avenue at your fingertips. The shops, cafes, restaurants, and conveniences of Vanderbilt, Flatbush, and Washington Avenues are within close proximity, as well. Zoned for PS 9 at present.

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.
