Description

Original detail abounds in this third floor, three-bedroom, two bath co-op, designed by Louis Bonert and uniquely updated for modern life.
 
The foyer features ornate stained-glass panels, a hinged bench under a pier mirror with hat hooks and recessed-panel doors with original brass hardware -- all of which set the tone for what's to come. The living room's three-window bay welcomes abundant south-facing light. The room features a decorative tiled fireplace with mirrored overmantel and cast-iron fireback, fretwork and parquet floors with ornate borders. The adjacent study has a long wall of built-in bookshelves and cabinetry and a fourth window. The center dining room is decorated with Candace Wheeler's "Bees with Honeycomb" wallpaper and is perfectly positioned between the kitchen and living room, with beautifully functioning pocket doors on both sides. The kitchen -- a home chef's dream -- has been remodeled with magnificent Santa Rita soapstone countertops in a deep green hue, an extra counter with breakfast bar, copious amounts of tall wood cabinetry, a five-burner Bertazzoni stove, Bosch dishwasher and side-by-side fridge. A pantry closet will meet all your kitchen-storage needs. The first full bathroom has been fashioned with small marble hexagonal floor tile, a Waterworks soaking tub, ceiling-high white subway tile and a custom designed bathroom cabinet you must to see to believe. Two well-proportioned bedrooms, separated for privacy, have California closets and lots of light from large windows. Continuing down the hallway, discover the well-organized walk-in closet and a second home office area. The primary bedroom is serenely situated in the back of the apartment and has another decorative fireplace, closet, and a built-in glass cabinet with drawers below. The roomy en-suite bath has large marble hexagonal floor tiles, a spacious step-in spa shower, and a full-sized washer and vented gas dryer. The soft blue-and-green palette is a perfect pairing with oak, cherry and maple woodwork you'll find throughout the apartment. One of only four co-ops in this turn of the century, nearly 25-foot-wide, 82-foot-long, triple-exposure townhouse, the apartment is both expansive and luxuriously light-filled. The common areas have also retained the gracious qualities of the past century and have been upgraded with new paint, a terra-cotta entry and original stained-glass windows on every landing. Live in this splendid location, just off Grand Army Plaza and Prospect Park; the Brooklyn Museum, library and Botanic Garden; the Park Slope Food Co-op and all the hot spots on Vanderbilt, Flatbush and Seventh Avenue; as well as easy access to the 2/3 and B/Q lines. Classic detail, modern amenities, steps from Prospect Park, and proximal to schools both public and private. With all of the richness of 19th-century craftsmanship paired with 21st-century updates, this apartment is the epitome of Park Slope living.
