NEWSWALK DUPLEX LOFT WITH ROOM TO GROW
Perfectly located at 535 Dean Street in the heart of Prospect Heights, this two-bedroom + duplex loft boasts grand proportions and a perfect split of public and private quarters spread across its palatial 2,055 sq ft:
Unit 310 is located on the third and most desired floor at the Newswalk, where the former Brooklyn Daily News factory conversion created a magical floor with nearly 18’ ceilings and a unique opportunity for “townhouse style” living to meet the quintessential Brooklyn-industrial loft, all packaged in a fully-serviced, luxury condominium building.
One arrives through a grand circular drive court, through an impeccably manicured garden and through a fully-serviced and 24/7 attended lobby with package, dry-cleaning and grocery storage. A quick, glass-elevator ride up and into an apartment immediately wows with high-ceilings, a spacious split-layout and industrial flourishes throughout.
As you enter the grand open entry foyer, a large landing with ample storage is the perfect perch for strollers, bicycles and everyday city needs. A plank wood encased staircase with black wrought iron handles guides you down into the living quarters. Here, an open concept, fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances serves as the centerpiece and ties the separate dining, work and living areas together while directing your gaze through oversized windows that brighten every room and offer sweeping views across Brooklyn and up towards Manhattan. At nearly 23’ wide, the entertainment floor offers grand proportions larger than some of the biggest mansions in the borough, and at nearly 30’ long the living room offers ample, uniquely programmed spaces for proper dining, entertainment and work, including a cozy but large nook just below the stairwell, presently used as is a large dining area perfect for hosting dinner soirées.
Back upstairs, the private residential quarters include two oversized bedrooms, complete with supersized walk-in closets and a beautiful marble bathroom with a jacuzzi bathtub. The floorplate here is so large, other units on the floor have readily converted the space into three bedrooms.
Prized for its enormous green spaces, friendly community vibe and perfectly central location, The Newswalk at 535 Dean includes a 20,000 sq ft. communal roof, complete with a private residents playground and park that provides the perfect spot for playdates, parties and dining al fresco with friends and neighbors. Downstairs, a lush private courtyard greets you with a sanctuary from the city streets. Perfectly located in the heart of Prospect Heights, Newswalk is moments from Vanderbilt Avenue and all its exciting restaurants, coffeeshops and bakeries, bars and ice cream shops. A few blocks away is Grand Army Plaza, where the city’s largest farmer’s market greets you on Saturdays as you enter Prospect Park. Across the street is a large block-through park complete with soccer fields, playgrounds and basketball courts. Down the street is the Barclays Center, with many subway lines bringing you direct into Manhattan in under 15 minutes. The pet-friendly building includes parking, full-time doorman, gym and bike storage.
