In a neighborhood renowned for its history and architecture, 70 Remsen Street remains a standout, notable for its attentive, full-service staff. Upon entering the revolving door to the lobby you'll begin to understand what makes residents want to stay.
Waking up each morning in this spacious 2 bedroom, 2 bath coop is always a pleasure. With the master bedroom situated at the rear of the building, and overlooking a quiet laneway, lined with low-rise carriage houses and mature trees, you'll first hear the delightful sounds of native birds courting each other as the sun rises and streams into your south-facing windows. Passing your adjoining and tastefully renovated bathroom via the short hallway to your open plan living room and kitchen, you'll notice that light is abundant throughout your home.
With two bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, and at opposing ends of the apartment, you'll find ample room for privacy, whether your needs run towards a home office, a guest room, or a dedicated second bedroom. And with the kitchen centrally located, you are never too far from the action.
Featuring a large island, granite counters and top of the line stainless steel appliances, you'll find creating meals a pleasure, and with everything from Trader Joes and Key Foods, Sahadi's, Fish Tales, Dellapietras, and the Farmer's Market at Borough Hall all close to hand, the perfect ingredient is within easy reach. And if pizza is your thing, you really are spoiled for choice here.
Whether you are off to work or looking for adventure, this is a home that delivers. Subway access is exceptional, with Borough Hall and its many lines close to hand, or walk/bike over the Brooklyn Bridge into Manhattan for work or leisure. And if recreation is the order of the day, you have Brooklyn Bridge Park just beyond the gorgeous Promenade. Make the most of the early mornings and beat the crowds. Wander through the landscaped gardens or simply take in the view from a well-placed park bench. You can watch the city come to life as ferries crisscross the East River or recline on a patch of grass to watch the clouds pass by overhead.
You'll know the right home when you see it. Just make sure you see this one before anyone else. The Remsen is pet friendly, has bike storage, communal laundry, full-time super and maintenance includes electricity.
