Traditional. Tranquil. Transformed. On a high floor in a coveted full-service co-op building on Eighth Avenue's "Doctor's Row," is this elegant and smartly renovated duplex apartment. Measuring approximately 1,400 square feet, this sprawling two-bedroom, 1.5 bath is strewn with light and set apart by its panoramic harbor and Manhattan views. The program for renovation was to accentuate ceiling heights, create maximum storage, enhance kitchen and baths and create a peaceful, liveable home. Mission accomplished! The lower level has a host of closets (including one walk-in) for myriad uses and features a sumptuous kitchen with Sub-Zero refrigerator, Wolf stove, Miele dishwasher, Franke sink and fittings and a generous island for food prep and informal meals. Banquettes were cleverly installed for efficient (hidden storage underneath), formal dining. The room sweeps back to reveal a living room that will handily accommodate large furniture and your oversized flat screen tv. A pretty powder room on this floor completes the scheme and offers convenience for owners and guests alike. Up a proper stair are two oversized bedrooms, each furnished with large closets. No detail was overlooked in the opulent bathroom: White Carrara marble informs the tone and scheme of the bath. A walk-in shower stands proud of a raised soaking tub, and there's a Duravit wall-mounted toilet and a custom vanity and medicine cabinet. Built-in shelving and closet make bed and bath linen stowing a cinch. The apartment is accentuated by lustrous Carlyle ash floors, exposed beams, nine foot ceilings, Restoration Hardware lighting and Smith & Noble window treatments. This venerable building, which recently replaced its historically appropriate steel casement windows, has a part-time doorman and full-time live-in super. Just one block to Prospect Park, a mere stone's throw to express trains and proximal to a dizzying selection restaurants, shops, public and private schools -- but with all that said, once you've set foot in this home, you may never want to leave.
