Let the sun shine in all day long in one of Park Slope's loveliest historic buildings in this stunning and sprawling high floor two-bedroom (easily convertible to three) two-and-a-half-bathroom home featuring an expansive open layout, beautiful contemporary style, postcard views in nearly every direction and an ideal location in a rare full service cooperative, just inches from Prospect Park and Grand Army Plaza.
Spanning approximately 1,700 square feet, this loft-like residence has original hardwood floors, soaring beamed ceilings and tons of windows on three exposures that frame spectacular views over Grand Army Plaza, Prospect Park and the Lower Manhattan Skyline and East River. The private elevator serves the A-line exclusively and delivers you directly to your apartment, opening the door to discover a massive footprint with inviting separate living and dining areas featuring built-in custom closets providing ample storage and creating definition of space within the gracious home. Whether you're cooking for two or twelve, the fully renovated oversized gourmet kitchen elevates every meal with tasteful finishes including stone countertops and a double farm sink. The fleet of Thermador stainless steel appliances includes a vented six-burner gas range, French door refrigerator, dishwasher and a U-line wine refrigerator. Breakfast bar seating, a powder room and a laundry closet with an in-unit washer-dryer add even more convenience to this beautifully planned space.
Head to the private primary suite, sequestered away from the living space, to discover king-size proportions and mesmerizing views over verdant Grand Army Plaza from the built-in wide window seat. An oversized dressing area wrapped in custom closets neatly and stylishly attends to clothing storage needs, while a pocket door reveals a stunning windowed en suite bathroom with a walk-in rain shower and floating vanity along with additional custom storage with mirrored make up area. The spacious secondary bedroom features handsome built-ins and a ceiling fan along with a great closet. Across the hall, the guest bathroom is classically finished with subway and sea-blue penny tile surrounding a soaking tub with shower. Additional closet space and through-the-wall air-conditioning add comfort and ease.
