Spacious and modern first floor duplex with 18.5 ceilings that's nestled on a quiet block in Northern Greenpoint.
This mint condition convertible 2-bedroom, 1-bathroom duplex condo is the embodiment of Brooklyn modernity. The residence is currently configured as a 1-bedroom but can easily be converted into a 2-bedroom if desired. Features of this 803 sq ft apartment include beautiful hardwood flooring, southern exposure, high ceilings and double-stacked windows that allow an abundance of natural light. Just when you thought it couldn't get any better, this unit has one of only four coveted deeded private storage closets in the building.
The upper level of the home opens directly into a bright dining space that flows seamlessly into the fully loaded kitchen, which boasts custom white lacquer cabinetry, sleek Caesarstone countertops, a subway tile backsplash, garbage disposal, an eat-in peninsula and a plethora of high-end stainless-steel appliances such as a Fisher & Paykel Fridge, Samsung Dishwasher, and a Samsung 5 Burner stove (can be controlled from your smartphone). The bedroom sits adjacent to the dining area and features a pair of oversized, sun-soaking windows and a large reach-in closet.
The lower level offers great flexibility and is large enough to be used as a bedroom and a home office/recreation area. There is a full-size washer/dryer on this level along with a large walk-in closet. With its own separate entrance, the lower level has its own privacy without having to disturb residents in the upper level. The duplex is pet friendly and easily accessible for those who do not prefer stairs.
Enjoy an abundance of bars, cafes and restaurants all favored by locals. Sip and savor a cup of joe at Eagle Trading Company, Odd Fox Coffee or Milk & Roses. Indulge in delicious farm to table seasonal restaurants including Glasserie, Le Fanfare and Anella. Other renowned restaurants that attract patrons from the NY Metro area include Oxomoco, Chez Ma Tante, and Paulie Gee's. Let's not forget about Lobster Joint, the top-rated happy hour spot on Foursquare. Unique to Greenpoint, purchase your own handpicked organic and heirloom fruits and vegetables at a farm atop a three-story warehouse, Eagle Street Rooftop Farm.
