Say good bye to your old, cramped apartment and say hello to this bright and airy duplex condo with central air, 2.5 bathrooms, and approximately 1,500 feet on two beautifully sun-lit levels!

This beautiful home has space for everything in your life - and for all of the activities and people in your life too.

The first floor is a staggering 65 feet deep from front to back. Today's life style revolves around open kitchens for socializing and gathering and here the chef's kitchen opens onto a long, generous living room with space for dining and entertaining, and features stone counters, abundant storage and stainless back splashes. The stone topped kitchen island in the center feels heavy and solid, but it's actually movable to customize the kitchen to your needs.

Down the hall from the living room is the perfect home office with rustic French doors. Feel the magic of closing the door and enjoying the focus and peace. Home offices are for more than just work, they're a place to research, edit and create. They're a launching pad for however you want to explore the world. Or if you have a passion for closets you could transform this home office into a serious walk-in closet. (But you don't have to, there is already terrific closets space plus a walk-in closet downstairs!)

The master bedroom looks out over the garden and features a wall of built in closets and an en suite master bath with a sleek honed marble vanity. The Interior foot print of the master is a massive 18 feet wide, enough to divide it into a master plus kids room. It's a valuable option. From this beautiful master suite, sliding glass doors lead to a patio and down to the yard. The large landscaped yard is an oasis with raised beds, barbecue, lounges and seating that's usable a least 8 months of the year. It's the perfect place to entertain, host or just happily overflow when you need extra space.

The lower level is 50% above grade at the yard with big bright windows. It's the same generous width and size as the master bedroom and it has a real full bath with honed marble vanity. It's definitely not a compromise. A door from this level leads out to the beautiful yard that's always in view, and this level also has a true walk-in closet and the private laundry.

This home features central air and a long tax abatement with 10 years remaining. Also, the board of 197 Spencer previously undertook extensive upgrades giving this building enduring value and limiting future expenses.

Perfectly located on the border of Clinton Hill and Bedford Stuyvesant, this neighborhood is alive with easy transportation into Manhattan, and the joys walkable and bikeable Brooklyn-life including to-dos like Fort Greene Park, or the renovated BedStuy YMCA and to-eats like Black Swan, Stonefruit, and many, many more.
