Garden views of Grace Court Alley await you in this lovely home at the Remsen, in the heart of Brooklyn Heights. Apartment 1G, located on the raised first floor, with the benefit of no elevator use needed, is a south-facing well designed one-bedroom, one-bath apartment. Its location in the rear of the building, overlooking the sunny garden and charming carriage houses, offers a quiet sanctuary full of natural light and the sounds of nature.
Architectural details are noted throughout, both appealing in style while full of functional convenience, thanks to renovations by a previous owner who was with Robert A.M. Stern. Recent upgrades to hardwood floors and crown moldings, enhance the beamed high ceilings and ample windows in every room, including the bathroom. The entrance leads to a nice sized foyer including a deep closet. The living room has plenty of space for both lounging and dining areas.
The windowed open kitchen, off the living room, has designer touches including sleek white custom cabinetry, Caesarstone countertops, concealed Bosch dishwasher, and high-end stainless steel appliances including Avanti gas range and LG refrigerator.
The hallway has a large double door walk-in closet conveniently across from the bathroom, gleaming with a white tiled, glass-enclosed, Riobel rain shower with handheld, Ronbow custom vanity, and a window for light and fresh air.
The bedroom is an entire living space, large enough for a king-size bed and multiple pieces of furniture; even room to create a home office. The multiple options for layouts will suit every need. A stylish yet functional ceiling fan and light create a finishing touch to the room.
