Stunning 2-Bed/2-Bath Triplex Apartment with Gym and POOL for Rent in Prospect Heights
Inground, salt water, heated pool.
I could probably end the description right there and still field calls all day, but this Prospect Heights brownstone triplex has so much more to offer it would be sinful to leave it all unsaid.
The fact is, this home offers everything you could possibly want or need… should you decide or need to spend more time at home. This day and age, just having an option to never have to leave your own private oasis in prime Brooklyn, and still have an opportunity to enjoy life to the fullest, is a rare commodity.
To start from the bottommost level: the basement offers a rec room and a gym, both spacious and way above standard. The rec area offers lots of room to spread out, relax and unwind, while the gym allows you to get back to the workouts you’ve been slacking on ever since your gym closed. Free weights, treadmill, punching bag... everything is there, everything you may need to work off the quarantine lbs that seem to be seeping in to plague us all.
Original detail and painstakingly restored woodwork abound on the ground floor, keeping the charm and elegance of this 100+ year old building intact, only enhanced with modern-day amenities. The sprawling living room can be closed off from the hallway with gorgeous pocket doors, gliding flawlessly on historically accurate new tracks (a theme present throughout the home), or you can leave the space open to establish a pass-through sweeping ground floor plan… and all that that could mean for an entertainer at heart. The living room flows into the modern kitchen by way of a dining area with a built-in booth. The kitchen is a chef’s dream, with yards of stone counter space to make slicing, dicing and observing or partaking in all the action… hassle-free. The gas range and oven are surrounded by cabinet space making storage a non-issue, and a second oven and microwave are just to the left so baking and cooking simultaneously can happen with ease. The stainless double-door fridge is embedded in a wall of floor-to-ceiling cabinetry, and the aforementioned dining area allows for easy serving and a comfortable dinner time. The center island helps facilitate prep and serving, while the dishwasher assists with clean-up. A nice touch is a pot filler crowning the 5-burner stove. Off the kitchen is a full, extremely spacious bathroom (a friend commented on the bath comparing in size to a standard Manhattan studio) with a deep soaking tub and shower, a wide marble-topped vanity, and high-end washer and dryer units. The kitchen gets amazing natural sunlight through the full glass sliding doorwall that lets out to the patio and the pool. Fire up the BBQ, play games at the 6-person patio table, relax and live your best life. And when the summer heat becomes too much, cool off by jumping into the pool. POOL! Just saying the word makes you want to go for a swim, and while the rest of Prospect Heights has to go to the Y or the beach and be ready to socially distance, all you have to do is slide the door out of the way and walk out into your backyard. Amazing.
The parlor floor contains more astonishing woodwork and detail, including pier mirrors, trellises and regal decorative fireplaces. The master bedroom alone is a work of woodworking art, with coffered ceilings, high chair rails, a decorative fireplace worthy of a King and/or Queen’s parlor and built-in storage options that are out of this world gorgeous. The master bedroom can easily accommodate a King size bed plus additional furniture and has more built-in closet and drawer space then you will likely be able to fill. The master bathroom is beautifully appointed and contains a double-sink vanity, linen closet, and a deep soaking tub and shower. Off the master bedroom is a pass-through nook that is just perfect for an office or a den, and it leads into the enormous second bedroom which can also easily accommodate a King bed plus furniture. Unbelievably detailed and restored hardwood flooring throughout this remarkable Prospect Heights home adds a level of atmosphere that is subtle yet opulent at the same time, and the large South-facing windows, topped with stained glass transoms, allow sunlight to spill in, unabashedly.
Your retreat from the everyday is located in prime Prospect Heights, on one of the most desirable, leafy residential blocks, steps from the restaurants and endless amenities that dot the Vanderbilt and Washington Avenues. Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Children’s Museum, and the Botanical Gardens are two blocks away, and the seasonal Farmer’s Market is an absolute treat to attend. Grand Army Plaza, Eastern Parkway, and Flatbush/7th Ave allow you to access the B,Q,S,2,3,4,5 trains, making transport to anywhere in the city a quick and easy journey.
Review the video walkthrough of this breathtaking Brooklyn home, then call, text or email to be added to the showing list if and when the showings in person resume. I do have a sense, though, that this home will rent quickly and sight unseen, so if “special” and “unique” appeal, SOONER than later is the word of the day.
