WATERFRONT, PENTHOUSE where PRIVATE OUTDOOR SPACE abound in this generous (2100ft combined) 2-bedroom,2-full bath, modern, brownstone PH with a jaw dropping 1000sf private roof deck with cinematic WATER VIEWS, iconic downtown SKYLINE VIEWS, and massive OPEN SKY views for as far as the eye can see. Located in Brooklyn's only distinctively uncrowded, waterfront neighborhood, where walkability and cycling are the safest in the city, restaurants are truly artisan, and pocket parks with community gardens create an urban small town feel, reminding us of all we adore about being a part of Brooklyn.
This lofty, sunlit home evokes a sense of peacefulness. The lush trees of Degraw rise to the oversized living room windows filling the view with blue sky, sunshine, and bright green treetops swaying in the breeze, while natural elements of whitewashed brick walls, true oak floors, and a graceful helix staircase to the roof deck create a tranquil flow. 10ft ceilings, a tremendous second story skylight and a top floor roof deck landing all add to the open, airy vibe. Plus being a PH in a low-rise community means protected and unobstructed views that give you a dazzling amount of sunlight and an unusual amount of privacy.
The entrance foyer has a large coat closet and there is built-in storage in the open living room- which flows to the dining space and is lit by the skylight above. The streamlined kitchen is fitted w ss appliances, sub-zero refrigerator, and wood cabinets from floor to ceiling. Additional cabinet storage can be found on the interior roof deck landing and in the dining area, which also has a clever built-in storageloveseat. Here you will find the first entrance to the sky high roof deck- dual points of access mean you or your guest can enter from inside the home or by the extended hallway staircase.
Ahhhh, luxuriate in this roof deck haven, made up of the entire top of the building- all exclusively yours and beyond perfect for every kind of entertaining one could think of. Summer cookouts, birthday parties, family reunions for 20 guests or more, bring it on. With a huge living/lounging space on the north deck, and a separate grilling/dining area on the south, there is plenty of room to bring everyone together in this landscaped oasis that receives both sun and shade throughout the day. Or perhaps you rather enjoy the quiet serenity this roof top provides, as you pick strawberries, tomatoes, mint, basil, or rosemary from the already established garden- while watching the sunshine shimmer on the waters of the Upper Bay. Either way, you will not want for a change of scenery with these mesmerizing views in every direction.
The second private outdoor space is in the terrace of the primary suite, accessed through sliding glass doors. This bright and roomy bedroom has large double closets and marble ensuite bathrm with soaking tub. The pin drop quiet second bedroom currently houses a queen and a twin bed- and is large enough for many different configurations. The windows of the home are noise/energy efficient and the central AC, NEST thermostat, video security, and vented W/D in its own closet, all elevate the convenience. Plus, the incredibly low monthly charges of only $908 just may have you singing in the streets.
