This bright spacious turnkey home is awaiting you.
Currently utilized as a 2-bedroom, this quiet legal one bedroom corner unit boasts over 800 square feet of gut renovated style, storage and creature comforts.
Upon entering the foyer, you're greeted by hand-scraped hardwood hickory floors which flow throughout the apartment. The large entry closet is the first of five closets (including one walk-in) throughout the home; you'll never lack for storage.
The foyer flows into the sunny living/dining room, which is over 20' long and also lit by recessed dimmable LED lighting. The Western exposure features views of Downtown Brooklyn above the canopy of the property's verdant mature trees. French doors lead into the secondary bedroom, which also has a pocket door into the kitchen.
The kitchen is outfitted with a full suite of stainless steel appliances, wood grain full-height shaker soft-close cabinets/drawers (including a pantry), touch-operated faucet, glass subway tile backsplash and beautiful Caeserstone countertops. The kitchen is designed with a smart pass-through window breakfast bar.
The primary bedroom feels palatial at 200 square feet, with a double exposure (Western & Northern, with views of the East River & Williamsburg bridge) and two spacious closets. It can easily accommodate a complete king bedroom set and even a dedicated office space.
The bathroom is fully tiled & vented, like the kitchen. The Delta rain showerhead over the cast iron bathtub helps reinforce the spa retreat motif.
Baseboard heating, recently upgraded to a digital system, keeps you warm in the winter and wall A/Cs keep you comfortable in the summer.
While located on the 8th floor of the main building of the gated University Towers community [over 5 beautifully manicured landscaped acres covered in gardens], you'll lavish in the complex's amenities, which include 24-hour security/lobby attendants, package room, refurbished 24-hour fitness facility (for a nominal fee), newly renovated large laundry room off the lobby with modern card-operated wifi-enabled machines, secured on-site parking (spots available for rent or purchase), community room, children's playground, indoor bike storage, storage units (subject to availability), two live-in supers (plus handymen & porters), an on-site management office, shaded pergola & gazebo seating areas, and a lush BBQ area complete with four state-of-the-art gas grills & ample seating over two levels.
The cooperative just completed a multi-million dollar renovation of the exterior parking lot grounds, including state-of-the-art LED lighting, as well as replacing all the windows with custom-built double-pane xenon-filled tilt-in models. Next up, a renovation & modernization of the interior spaces (corridors, lobbies, community room, etc.). Since the cooperative is in fantastic fiscal health, all of these capital improvements were financed without the need to level any special assessments due to millions in the reserve fund. Additionally, there's no flip tax, and the cooperative has a uniquely generous sublet policy (and allows co-purchasing, gifting, etc.).
University Towers is located at the nexus of the best that Brooklyn has to offer in beautiful Fort Greene, bordering exciting Downtown Brooklyn. At your feet you'll have the DeKalb Avenue station which is the first stop in Brooklyn on numerous subway lines (B/Q, N, R), as well as a quick stroll to over half-a-dozen other train lines (A, C, F, G, 2, 3, 4, 5 & the LIRR). Within mere blocks you have the pristine beauty of Fort Greene Park (and its terrific farmers' market), the stunning architecture of the Fort Greene Historic District, the accessibility of the Manhattan Bridge, the excitement of the BAM cultural district, the convenience of retail & entertainment at Barclays' Center/Fulton St mall/City Point (Trader Joe's, Target, Alamo Drafthouse, DeKalb Market, Apple Store, Whole Foods 365, Wegman's, etc.), as well as some of the best restaurants & nightlife the borough and city can offer.
Board approval required. Sorry, NO PETS allowed. Agent/owner.
