This magnificent loft-like three-bedroom apartment in a highly sought-after pet-friendly co-op is a rare find. Stunning corner-unit apartments like this one, with three exposures, lovely treetop views, and a brilliantly efficient layout, do not come on the market every day. This one is a must-see!
Enter into a gracious and practical landing area that is nicely hidden from the main space. There you'll find beautiful architect designed built-ins that will tidily store your things: a deep bench with tucked-away shoe cubbies, coat hooks, and a big outfitted closet. Opposite these is a sleek wall-mounted storage unit for stowing keys and mail. An additional roomy hall closet with three mirrored sliding-door panels is to the left.
Beyond the foyer wall is an enormous east-facing open-plan living/dining space that can be configured in many different ways to match your needs. A Haiku ceiling fan and a Plumen pendant chandelier grace its ceiling, and three large east-facing windows create a gorgeous wall-of-windows effect that lends a bright and airy feel to the room. Adjacent to this main area is a luxuriously stylish kitchen that has so many great features: lots of counter space, quartz countertops, a recessed nook to neatly house appliances, a big baker's island and a breakfast bar that both have tons of storage, a wine fridge, a handsome glass-bottomed stove hood, beautiful custom cabinetry, filtered hot and cold water, and recessed lighting. Off the kitchen, and opposite the main living space, is a spacious second common room that can be used as office space, den, library or media room.
Separate from the common areas are three bedrooms, two of which are each accessed through stealthy pocket doors that flank a hallway. Both of these light-filled rooms feature chic wallpaper, colorful chandeliers, and a whole wall of excellent custom built-ins that include a platform bed. The larger of these bedrooms has two exposures and an en-suite bathroom with a stall shower. The very bright primary bedroom has southern and western exposures and an extra wide closet that has frosted glass sliding doors and a built-in shelving system. Adjacent to the primary bedroom is a pleasant, windowed full bath.
This special home also has newly installed wide-plank oak flooring with cork soundproofing subfloor throughout and a spiffy dedicated laundry room with a side-by-side washer/dryer, storage, and a convenient surface for folding. Stylish details abound such as tasteful and unique light fixtures, Flavor Paper wallpaper in three rooms, and custom closet doors from Sliding Door Company.
Berkeley Square is a popular art deco co-op with exceedingly strong financials, no underlying mortgage, large reserves, and affordable maintenance.

The building has three full-time doormen, a live-in super, a full-time porter, a bike room, a well-designed common outdoor space, extra storage available for rent (possible waitlist), and parking in a gated adjacent lot for $75/month (waitlist). Close to Prospect Park and all it has to offer including the nearby LeFrak center, with ice skating rink in the winter, and roller skating and splash pad in the summer. One block from the B and Q trains at Church Avenue, and close to the revamped Kings Theatre, as well as all the amenities of Church Avenue and Cortelyou Road, including the year-round Cortelyou farmers market. It's also less than a mile from the Kensington dog run!
