Located on Park Slope's fabled Gold Coast directly across from Prospect Park and just south of Grand Army Plaza, this well-preserved 2BR cooperative maintains many original, exceptional architectural features. Own a piece of historic NYC in one of four Montrose Morris (c. 1898) landmarked designs. This 25-foot-wide neo-Italian Renaissance limestone exudes a classic historic charm.
A gracious stair and hallway lead you to the top floor, where rooms radiate off a central kitchen, with high ceilings creating an intriguing and flexible layout. With architectural details such as gabled ceilings, original hardwood floors, recessed-panel doors, historic windows, and shutters, your new home is ready for your modernization and refined touches.
Calm and comfort are words to describe the drama of the east-facing living room. The three-window bay is a year-round picturesque view filled with trees and blue sky. Warmed in winter by the wood-burning fireplace with original restored mantel, this room has graceful dormers and gracious proportions. Vented laundry with stackable washer/ dryer, the vintage bathroom, and a large coat closet are accessed here. The center kitchen features an oversized skylight with an island/breakfast bar and generous cabinetry and countertops to show off your culinary skills.
Each bedroom has a closet and west-facing light. The secluded private deck off the primary bedroom is over 150 square feet with magnificent city views. Two skylights, as well as two exposures, bathes the apartment in natural sunlight.
This self-managed cooperative has five units, pet-friendly, with no underlying mortgage, and low maintenance costs. There is an option to install a central air system from the roof. Walking distance to the farmer's market, the main branch of the Brooklyn Library, the Botanic Garden, the Brooklyn Museum, and local trains (2, 3 at Grand Army Plaza) are minutes away.
