Your chance to live in one of Brooklyn's most incredible architectural masterpieces, the Polhemus Residences, with PRIVATE UNDERGROUND PARKING is here. This iconic French Renaissance building was reimagined just three years ago by BKSK Architects, and 4C is one of its most generously sized and stylish 2-bed, 2.5-bath units. Sitting at the Southeast corner of the building, this 1,616 SF apartment offers incredible light and rooftop views through oversized windows, and exceptional scale with 11' ceilings. This full-service building is in the best Cobble Hill location: a peaceful block close to the incredible shops, restaurants and amenities of Court St. and Atlantic Ave., as well as multiple transportation options and the magnificent Brooklyn waterfront.
Enter into the home's spacious foyer with coat closet and move into the main living area which offers the finest in finishes. The chef's kitchen features a Gaggenau appliance suite including a 5-burner cooktop, paneled 36-inch refrigerator, wine fridge, wall-mounted speed oven plus convection oven, and paneled dishwasher. Outfitted with custom wood cabinets in grey matte lacquer & plain sawn grey stained cerused oak, you will have extensive storage options including a pantry. Leather-wrapped Tanner's Craft nickel hardware, warm grey & brown veined 2" thick honed marble counters & Ann Sacks handmade subway backsplash tiles complete the package, while oversized Opal glass and mesh-covered pendant lights illuminate the space.
The generously sized living space easily accommodates both a spacious dining area and separate living room. A custom solid walnut built-in with multiple areas for media as well as your favorite books and object d'art will be the talk of the space, while your dining room comfortably accommodates a 60" round dining table and is punctuated with designer lighting that make any meal a must-attend event.
