The elegant, unique corner layout affords space, quiet and privacy. It is the ideal canvas for you to transform into your next home.
The home features grand room sizes including a large entry foyer, a massive separate formal dining room - which can potentially be a third bedroom (see alternate floor plan), a windowed kitchen with a service entrance and an enormous living room. Numerous closets, including an extra-large cedar closet, are strategically placed throughout the apartment.
The central hallway off the foyer leads to two very large bedrooms: the corner master bedroom has views of the Brooklyn Museum and Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, an en-suite bath, walk-in closet and linen closet, while the second corner bedroom has a second full bath in the hall immediately adjacent.
