54 Remsen Street, APT 2

On gorgeous Remsen Street, a half block from the Promenade in historic Brooklyn Heights, this sprawling, just-renovated floor-through home has wonderful period details paired with lovely modern touches. On the second floor of a classic 25' x 64' brick townhouse, the proportions of this apartment are exceptional. The focal point of the central living room is the large wood-burning fireplace. With a black marble mantle flanked by built-in bookshelves to each side, its easy to imagine yourself cozied up by the fire with a good book. An arched threshold leads to the spacious dining room, complete with a second wood-burning fireplace and two oversized windows which bring in lovely light and look out onto tree-lined Remsen Street. The windowed kitchen opens onto the dining area and features new stainless steel appliances and an abundance of work and storage space.

Skylights in each hallway usher you towards the bedrooms, nicely separated from the main living areas. Past the most charming built-in wet bar, the primary bedroom is enormous. With south-facing bay windows overlooking the gardens on Grace Court, the afternoon light is simply stunning. A wall of built-in custom closets and drawers takes away the need for dressers or additional storage furniture, allowing the room to have a simple, open and airy feel. Additional closets frame the entrance to the en-suite bath, one housing the stacked washer and dryer. Stone tile, a large walk-in shower, a pedestal sink and modern fixtures create a spa-like feel in this roomy bath.

The main bath is classic with black and white tile, a pedestal sink and a cast iron tub. The second bedroom is also well-proportioned with a third marble mantle and decorative fireplace. Spanning the length of the bay windows, the delightful window seat provides great storage below. With Grace Church and the extra deep gardens of Remsen Street, the views from the bedrooms are truly special and the light, beautiful.

Throughout the apartment you'll find original chair-rail and crown molding, fantastic closet space, including a separate coat closet in the hall outside the apartment door, 10 foot ceilings, and custom lighting. And don't miss the stunning hardwood floors in every room-herringbone in bedrooms, parquet in the living room, and a unique intricate pattern in the dining room. Ductless mini-splits provide air conditioning.

54 Remsen Street is a lovingly cared for five-story, three-unit coop. Extra storage and bike storage can be found in the basement and it's pet friendly too. Literally on the block where the Promenade begins, one block from Montague Street and all of its wonderful stores and restaurants, and minutes from practically every subway line, the location is second to none!
