THE GREAT OUTDOORS, ALL YEAR ROUND
Wouldn?t it be marvelous to live in a full-service building in Park Slope? And suppose it was large and spacious, completely renovated, and had a massive terrace with views from Prospect Park to the Verrazano Bridge? It may seem to be a fantasy, but it actually exists AND is on the market.
High above Prospect Park sits Penthouse D at 35 Prospect Park West. The elevator leaves one in a private vestibule. The front door leads to a gracious foyer and immediately there are glimpses of the magnificent views to the south and west.
The upper floor of this duplex has a truly special living room with windows on 3 sides and a wood-burning fireplace. A large central hall leads to the formal dining room which has been finished with Venetian plaster. All rooms have original, refinished herringbone floors and original moldings.
Further is the kitchen which was designed with a serious cook in mind. SubZero, Miele, Wolf and Blue Star appliances, limestone counters, massive custom built cabinetry, cork floors, and a windowed kitchen sink are a few of the features.
A sitting room off the kitchen has beautiful light and currently serves as an office. It would also serve well as a breakfast room.
Yet to be mentioned is the 2,600 square foot terrace which surrounds this floor of the duplex. Entrances from the office, the central hall, and the living room mean that stepping outside is the easiest of decisions. Built-in seating, mature plantings and an irrigation system make the terrace an additional set of rooms that are a pleasure for at least half of the year. And with seating areas that face north, west, east, and south, one can always find one?s favorite setting - sunny, shady, wind-protected, cozy, or expansive.
A lovely curved staircase leads from the foyer to the lower level of the apartment. Here is an over-sized master bedroom. Views are south and west. There are 2 walk-in closets, a full bath, a shaving closet, and an alcove which serves as a private library.
There is also a large library facing west which is lined with custom bookcases and has a specially designed tv cabinet. (This room was previously a 4th bedroom.) There are an additional 2 bedrooms with a shared bath further down the hall, and a laundry room.
The entire apartment was renovated in 2009. The following is a list of the major improvements carried out after not having been renovated for many, many years.
- Central Air Conditioning installed with 3 zones
- All windows replaced - 25 windows in total
- 3 doors to the terrace are new
- Extensive electrical work completed throughout
- New bathrooms
- Kitchen entirely replaced
- New laundry room created
- Entire terrace covered with custom deck to protect roof
- Built in planters and seating
- Irrigation system for effortless plant health
The combination of a full service building with the best reputation, 4 bedrooms, a wrap-around terrace with views, and a top quality renovation is rare indeed. Take advantage of the opportunity and call for a viewing.
