Welcome to 195 Hawthorne, a 14-unit boutique condo building located in the heart of Prospect Lefferts Gardens. Unit 1S is a grand duplex with almost 1,000 interior sq ft, 55 sq ft private patio, a deeded parking space included, and your own private entrance, making this modern maisonette feel like your own house with the ease and convenience of condo-living.
Your private patio creates an oasis for you to bask in the south-facing sunlight over your coffee and the news, or enjoy a glass of wine and a favorite book as the sun sets. A big hit with pets, the patio creates prime opportunities for sunbathing, gardening, and happy hour celebrations.
Upon entry you are immediately impressed by the expansive 12 ft ceilings in a warm and sun-drenched home, compliments of the massive south-facing windows. The perfectly configured floor plan features your open living room, dining area, and kitchen (with built-in pantry), ideal for hosting and entertaining. The upstairs also features the 2nd bedroom with large built-out walk-in closet; it is a perfect space for a bedroom, home office, and/or guest room.
Just down stairs you can enjoy 9 ft ceilings and more big windows full of that south-facing sunlight through the light well. The space has been transformed into a massive private master suite complete with large built-out walk-in closet, GE washer and dryer (vents out) in a designated laundry closet, and powder room. This expansive suite is large enough to feature another home office or a fitness area (currently configured) while also providing ample closet and storage spaces.
The kitchen boasts refined details including Fisher and Paykel refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher, Bosch gas stove and convection oven, and a 155-bottle wine fridge. Custom light fixtures operated by the Lutron Casta smart dimmer system run throughout, as do stunning white oak hardwood floors. Both bathrooms include new, thoughtfully composed cabinetry, and the full-bath features a Duravit soaking tub. All of your modern upgrades have been thought-out and included.
This home is complete with a secure private parking space, located on-site, in the building's private parking, with easy access to your back entrance from the parking area. Just outside your rear entrance is a locked storage bin as well as private secured bike storage in a designated bike room.
Other building offerings include: outdoor rooftop lounge with gas grill, refrigerator, sink, and expansive views. Enjoy the darling garden and greenhouse (featured in the photography), gym, secure package room with virtual doorman, and a highly coveted tax abatement until 2033.
Anchored by Prospect Park, Prospect Lefferts Gardens offers a beautiful and charming neighborhood with easy access to all that Prospect Park has to offer: Brooklyn Botanical Garden, the Prospect Park Zoo, LeFrak Center, Prospect Park Lake, Carousel, and more.
