Located on coveted Plaza Street in a pristine Art Deco full-service doorman/elevator building, this home is a serene top floor oasis with southern and western exposures. This well-proportioned apartment boasts an impeccable architect-designed renovation that merges prewar detail with modern appeal.
Throughout this lovely home you will find 9-foot ceilings, archways, moldings, a charming arched built-in shelf, and original ribboned parquet and hardwood floors. The kitchen features a peninsula with storage and a built-in breakfast bar, stainless steel appliances, including a Delonghi stove and GE dishwasher, quartz countertops, a ceramic subway tile backsplash, white cabinets, undermount lighting, and a built-in microwave. Equal attention and care was given to the renovated, windowed, and generously sized bathroom, which is crisp and clean with beautiful carerra marble tiles, a Duravit sink, chrome fixtures, a large window, and a separate Duravit soaking tub and shower stall with a rain shower. The bright, king-sized corner bedroom has two large closets and was thoughtfully subdivided into a comfortable master bedroom with an adjoining nursery (the wall is removable, if desired).
This pet-friendly building has a large, renovated, and well-maintained laundry room available 24/7 with a huge lending library for residents, a children's playroom/lounge, personal storage cages, and bike storage in the basement. The same wonderful superintendent has lived onsite and served the building since 2003.
The location couldn't be better! Within steps of the 2/3 and a 5-minute walk to the B/Q trains, surrounded by an array of restaurants, boutiques, shops, and services, right around the corner from Fausto and a burgeoning restaurant scene on both Flatbush and Vanderbilt Avenues. It is also just a short walk to Prospect Park, the main branch of the Brooklyn Public Library, the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, and the weekend Green market. Parking and Zipcars are available in the nearby Richard Meier building. This is a truly amazing place to call home!
