Designer's1BR plus Loft
Tired of seeing the same old place over and over again? Here is a unique, beautifully designed and crafted one bedroom in the heart of Prospect Heights. Enter through a private street entrance to an intimate foyer with a pair of quaint French doors that open into a dramatic double-height space. The design professional's attention to detail is evident from the leather door pulls to the elegant built-in bookcases and radiant heated floors. Four windows in the living/ dining area bring an abundance of light from the south and west. The open kitchen, with more than enough space for two, has stylish custom cabinetry, Caesar Stone counter tops, a dishwasher and a lower cabinet on wheels allowing you to create an island or an L-shaped counter. At the far end of the apartment is a bedroom containing a whole wall of closets. The sparkling white bathroom has a washer and dryer, linen closet and window for ventilation. Wait, there's more! A substantial loft above the bedroom, kitchen and bathroom spans the entire length of the apartment. This extra space makes a handy sleeping area for your guests on one side and a cozy reading nook on the other plus provides a tremendous amount of storage. An industrial-chic ladder slides to offer multiple access points. Underhill Gardens is a pet-friendly 24-unit co-op with a huge landscaped garden offering a bucolic grassy picnic area, patio tables and chairs, gas and charcoal grills as well as a bicycle rack. For the urban gardener, already blooming vegetable plots are available to tend upon request. The co-op is comprised of three separate buildings each offering common storage and a bike room. The building is professionally managed and is financially strong and is soon to pay off their underlying mortgage. With the commercial strips of Vanderbilt and Washington Avenues a block in either direction, dining out and shopping are a cinch. Three subway stations with regular 2/3, B/Q or C train service are close by making for an easy commute. No need to jump on the train when spending time in Brooklyn as Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Museum, and the Barclays Center are just a short stroll from this gem you could call home.
