The Iconic Cobble Hill Towers were created by Alfred T. White to create a new model for worker housing in 1879. He was also an early benefactor of the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. Alfred was known to create home buildings with small returns and was known as Brooklyn's first citizen. Alfred was known for his philanthropy and social reform a true Brooklyn native! The 9 6 Story buildings face Hicks, Warren and Baltic Street and are architecturally unique. Decorative railings, red brick and a terrace on each floor. The buildings surround 2 large private courtyards! YES 2 courtyards! The courtyards are a great outdoor escape offering a place to read, catch some Vitamin D or have an awesome BBQ. I happen to love the Gazebo, a place to escape the sun and enjoy the twists and turns of the trees and vines; nature at its finest.
The walk up barely feels like a 5 story walk-up, the exterior staircase provides natural light and air flow, a terrace to pause and gaze at the night sky.
When you reach the 6th Floor the Manhattan views are amazing. You can also see Lady Liberty in the harbor. The terrace spans the front windows of your home allowing for home grown herbs or perhaps your favorite flower.
Upon entering you are in a very comfortable sized living room; the flow feels open and the large windows offer a nice view of the Freedom Tower and lower Manhattan. If you like to entertain there is plenty room for a table of 6, maybe even 8. The kitchen boasts an exposed brick curved wall and is fully equipped with a dishwasher and all stainless-steel appliances.
The 2 bedrooms each have a walk-in closet, YES even I had to take a double look. They overlook the courtyards allowing for a peaceful sleep.
Cobble Hill is home to so many amazing places to eat, the close proximity to ONE BROOKLYN BRIDGE PARK and the Subway make it a great place to call home. It doesnt end there; it is currently zoned for P.s.29 which is right around the block. Storage spaces for rent via wait list, bicycle room and laundry in building.
