At the iconic address mentioned in Jay-Z's "Empire State of Mind," this duplex is located in the lovely Boerum Hill neighborhood. Walk just 1/2 a mile to Fort Greene Park, around the corner to Whole Foods Market, or take the subway one stop to Prospect Park.
The unassuming entrance on State Street is equipped with a ButterflyMx entry system and mobile access. Inside and just up the steps, you'll find this brick townhouse-style complex with an oversized courtyard carefully designed by landscape architects at Terrain NYC. In the 6000 SF Archipelago green space, 560 State residents barbecue, store their bikes, and picnic under large trees strung with Edison bulbs.
Within boutique residence #9, Apt 9B is up just one flight of stairs. Enter into the generous living space lit by three over-sized south-facing windows with newly refinished solid oak floors and mid-century-style overhead light fixtures. The home has central air controlled by a Nest thermostat and the open kitchen with island features a high capacity refrigerator, garbage disposal, gas range, and granite countertops. Also within the first floor is a separate powder room and built-in workspace.
A staircase features additional storage underneath, as well as a shiplap accent wall and skylight overhead. Upstairs you'll find a full bathroom, large washer and vented dryer, and two generously sized bedrooms that face south. This home ticks all of the boxes and is also easily rented for profit. Enjoy the best of Fort Greene, Boerum Hill, and Park Slope all within minutes!
* Please be advised that the lobby is currently under renovation with a package room, interior bike and stroller storage, and personal storage lockers being added - this unit will have an assigned locker. Expected completion by the end of 2021. The assessment for this has already been paid in full and there are two entrances to the building.
