This delightfully sunny top-floor Kensington apartment on tree-lined Ocean Parkway is currently configured as a two-bedroom, two-bathroom home, but has the potential to be easily converted to a three-bedroom.
A spacious entryway that can accommodate a home office set-up leads to a large, airy living room whose west-facing windows frame an expansive big-sky view of the Brooklyn treetops and the graceful Verrazano Bridge. Just off this space is a recently renovated kitchen that has Silestone countertops, custom cabinets, a sleek counter-depth fridge, a charming farmhouse sink, and a handy pull-out garbage bin. There is ample counter and storage space plus a built-in microwave and a dishwasher.
The big, bright primary bedroom has an en suite bathroom as well as a great walk-in closet fitted with a built-in organization system. The second bedroom also gets wonderful light and has a generously sized closet with flexible built-in shelving.
This inviting apartment has recently refinished original oak flooring, convenient in-wall AC units, custom-fitted Smith and Noble cordless blinds, two huge entryway closets, and a windowed second bathroom.
The Dartmouth, at 399 Ocean Parkway, is a well-kept, pet-friendly elevator co-op that has a live-in super, a laundry room, a recently restored lobby, and a parking garage (wait list). Across from the dedicated bike path that runs along Ocean Parkway, the building is close to both the Q and F/G train lines and Prospect Park. Right off amenity-packed Cortelyou Road, home to the Flatbush Food Co-op, a year-round farmers market, and many dining options, such as Lea, King Mother, and Mimi's Hummus. Also nearby are Kensington's offerings, including a new dog park, Jaya Yoga, and restaurants such as Hamilton's and Thai Farm Kitchen.
