Here is a rare opportunity to own a slice of historic New York in a landmarked neo-Italian Renaissance limestone classic designed by renowned architect Montrose Morris. This sophisticated and well-sized 3-bedroom 2-bath 2ND FLOOR duplex, located on Park Slope's fabled Gold Coast directly across from Prospect Park, has been thoughtfully updated to preserve many of the original, exceptional architectural features. The grand living room windows command park views while the generously sized chef's kitchen, outfitted with top-tier appliances, abundant granite counter space and custom cabinetry, is designed to satisfy the epicurean's needs. The flexible floor plan allows you to maintain the current master bedroom with a majestic en-suite bath with original wall tiles, chandelier and stained glass windows or create a magnificent formal dining room. The upper floor boasts two sun-drenched, full-sized bedrooms overlooking the park and a full bath with a washer/dryer. The apartment and the building is distinguished by original hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings, hand-made tile and exotic decorative fireplaces, curved wood doors, and stunning stained glass. The apartment has ample closet space and there is additional storage in the basement. Perfectly situated on the park, close to the Brooklyn Public Library, the Brooklyn Botanical Garden, shopping, transportation and the weekly Farmers' Market in Grand Army Plaza, this well maintained pet-friendly coop has no underlying mortgage and low monthly maintenance charges. It offers a singular opportunity for those with a discerning eye for convenience coupled with elegance.
