The elegance of a bygone era, yet updated for todays discerning buyer: this gorgeous two bed (convertible three) two bath duplex in a brownstone mansion co-op is perfectly located directly across from Prospect Park. You enter on the parlor level through beautiful original mahogany pocket doors, one of four sets throughout the apartment. The visual impact of the nearly twelve foot high ceilings is immediate. Survey the living room with its picture and crown moldings and intricately detailed inlaid oak floors. Pass through another set of pocket doors, through the library area with built-in bookshelves, to the dining area and open kitchen with dishwasher and excellent storage. A third set of sliding doors, these with gorgeous stained glass, lead you to the master bedroom wing. The bay window, matching the bay in the living room, has oversized windows trimmed in the original mahogany woodwork that flows throughout the entire upstairs area. The Mitsubishi A/C ensures modern comfort, and built in storage ensures plenty of room for todays possessions. The recently renovated windowed en suite bath features a charming claw foot tub and a modern steam shower, with lovely marble tiles throughout. You may now descend the gently curving staircase to the lower level bedroom area, passing by more storage and another completely renovated, windowed bath with crisp subway tile and new fixtures. This level, which is convertible, is spacious and open and ready for multiple uses. In addition to the large windows looking out to the garden, two additional windows (currently covered) may be re-opened. (Please consult your attorney or architect for legal bedroom requirements.) A full sized washer and dryer sit in a separate closet large enough for a generous storage area. Additional modern conveniences include recessed lighting throughout, a monitored security system and a dedicated storage area in the basement. If the artistry of the 1800s coupled with the comforts of today speak to you, call for your appointment to see this truly special home.
