Perched high in the sky, at the cross-section of Downtown Brooklyn and Brooklyn Heights, is 96 Schermerhorn Street Apartment PHC: a well-proportioned one-bedroom one and one-half bathroom duplex in a premiere white-glove pre-war co-op in one of the most sought-after neighborhoods Brooklyn has to offer. Soaring 10’ and 12’ ceiling heights, sweeping south-facing views, hardwood floors, and outfitted closets run throughout.
The main level features 10’ ceilings, an expansive living room and dining area, a half bathroom situated off the entryway, pantry and coat closets, and a recently updated semi-open full-service kitchen with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and ample storage.
There is nothing better than duplex living for those who continue to work from home! The upper-level functions as a full-floor primary suite, replete with 12’ ceilings and ample space for a home office nook in various locations. The generously sized primary bedroom has an adjacent walk-in closet that can efficiently function as a home office or bonus room. The full bathroom is located directly off the second-floor landing.
Both levels can be accessed from their respective common hallways, making entry and exit a breeze when we need to head out the door in haste!
This almost 100-year-old building was designed for St. John’s College to serve as the campus’s primary building. 96 Schermerhorn Street was later used as the school’s Law School and, in 1981, was adapted for residential use. Amenities include a charming lobby with historical details, a full-time doorman, live-in super, oversized elevators, a central laundry room, bike storage, and a resident’s roof deck that captures views of Lower Manhattan, the Statue of Liberty, as well as the New York Harbor. Nearby access to the 2,3,4,5, N & R trains is located at the Borough Hall/Court Street station, and the A, C, F, & R trains at Jay Street Metro-Tech. The F & G trains are also nearby and are located at the Bergen Street station. Close proximity to Trader Joe’s, Court Street shopping, Smith Street and Atlantic Avenue. And don’t forget the Promenade and Brooklyn Bridge Park are virtually in your backyard!
Single-year assessment will run through June 30th of 2023 in the amount of $458.54 per month for elevator updates. Pied-a-terre NOT permitted.
