A light-filled true 2BR loft in the pre-war Clinton Mews a historic shoe factory converted to residential in 1987 6H is the kind of uniquely New York beauty that doesn't come to market every day.
A rare penthouse among 78 residential lofts, 6H conveys with private rights to a massive section of the roof yes, that picnic-tabled playground is all yours! and an owner-designed gut renovation that has made the most of historic ceiling heights, oversized windows, and of course, expansive interior space. Every detail was addressed, from the sanded and refinished flooring to the upgraded EcoStyle hydronic radiators with sub-zoning and internal thermostat.
Entering through a wide gallery, you're met by a New York mile of storage space plus a laundry closet stacked with brand new stainless steel Whirlpool steam clean washer and dryer.
A dedicated dining nook gives onto a spacious open kitchen with Carrera marble countertops, Miele dishwasher, a massive Liebherr counter-depth over-under refrigerator, 5-burner professional DCS range, and LG over-the-range microwave/hood. Functionality and form have a happy marriage here, right down to the hardware. The double sink is equipped with a water filter, and the high gloss cabinetry and open shelving are fresh and appealing, all bathed in light from the massive northeast facing windows.
The open living room has been appointed with built-in bookshelves and mid-century styled workspace and entertainment center for a joyful mix of work and play.
A wide hallway (this one with added linen storage) leads to the bedrooms. The king-size primary en suite features a walk-in closet and an elegant bath with new fixtures including Hansgrohe raindance showerhead, Duravit toilet and Kohler sink. The second bedroom is generously proportioned and equally inviting as a spare or child's bedroom, home office, or studio, with vivid light all day long. The second bath has likewise been renovated and retiled, with a deep soaking tub.
With so much light and space, you may not often want to leave home but when you do, the building's common amenities include brand new elevators, on-site security, bike storage, a landscaped courtyard, a live-in super, and full-time porters. Maintenance is 55% tax deductible, and sales carry no flip tax. New windows, lobby and common area renovations are planned and will be financed without assessment from the building's healthy reserve fund. Ultra-convenient, gated parking is right out the back door and available for $177 per month.
Across the street from the Pratt Institute and its gorgeous sculpture garden, and a few blocks from Ft. Greene Park, BAM, Barclays Center, and City Point BKLYN, 372 Dekalb is a calm oasis in a storied neighborhood. Abundant green space, cultural outings, and delectable dining at local favorites like Evelina, Miss Ada, Imani, Speedy Romeo, Mekelburgs, Peaches, and Roman's (plus a newly opened Food Emporium just a block away) all means you'll never want to leave the neighborhood but if you have to, the G train is around the corner, and the A/C is just a ten-minute walk away.
