Unit 1 at 252 Gates Avenue is one of the most significant condominium properties to ever come on the market in this exquisite part of brownstone Brooklyn. This grand parlor/garden duplex home offers an incredible 2273 square feet of interior space on two levels, with four full bedrooms, three full baths, plus a gorgeous private yard. Your new home is in a very rare Queen Anne mansion that has been gorgeously restored, and each floor is an unheard of 70' deep by up to 21' wide. The level of finish is absolutely unsurpassed with white oak herring bone floors, multiple original mantles including one wood burning fire place, and central air conditioning. Ceilings on the parlor soar to over 11'. There are TWO rear facing corner master suites both overlooking the private garden and one of which could also be a great family room. The kitchen and baths are exquisitely done with marble and latest in luxury fixtures. Other modern amenities include a washer/dryer and completely upgraded plumbing, electrical, and building mechanicals. There is also a large basement storage space that could serve as a home office. Located on one of the most coveted blocks in the area, Gates Avenue between Franklin and Classon Avenues, your new home is steps to superb dining, nightlife, boutique shopping, and the C train for easy Manhattan access. This is a truly rare and unprecedented property.
