It's only two flights up to your exquisite palace in the sky. Behind the original 12 foot oak front door awaits your thoughtfully renovated duplex loft on the top floors of a carriage house designed by renown Brooklyn architect M.J. Morrill in 1874. This exquisite floor-through property was originally built as a Masonic Lodge (and later used as a firehouse) and benefits greatly from soaring 18' ceilings that dwarf the massive over-sized windows, which flood the apartment with sunlight from its Northern, Eastern, Western and Southern Exposures--not to mention the numerous skylights (one of which is vaulted). Upon entering this meticulously renovated modern masterpiece, you'll find yourself in the foyer, which is perfect for a den or office/workspace. This leads to the chic architectural staircase (not a spiral) that brings you to the lofted sleeping mezzanine, which has an full ensuite bath, 12 feet of deep closets and beautiful skylights. The mezzanine is large enough to be split into two bedrooms, which the landlord is more than willing to do for the right tenant. This elegant property has a chef's kitchen, just past the other full bathroom, with top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, custom cherry wood cabinets, Ceasarstone countertops, and a large breakfast bar. The kitchen opens up into a breathtaking great room--and in this case, it is no exaggeration. With superb fixtures (such as smart scones, big built-in shelving, and a one-of-a-kind lighting installation), you'll never want to leave this wing of your new home. Fresh off a recent renovation, you'll easily notice no expense was spared. New windows help keep in the heat from the unit's own heating and A/C systems. A new state-of-the-art security system keeps you and your possessions safe. A brand new LG premium washer and dryer is tucked away in the laundry room. Parking and parcel/package holds are available next door. The roof with stunning views is directly above the apartment, which has private access from this unit via ladder, and the landlord is willing to turn the roof into your private oasis in the sky. Bring your dog and your cat--pets are welcome! 2 month's security deposit due at lease signing. This gorgeous home needs to be seen to be believed.
