Move right into this upgraded charmer on the Windsor Terrace border, a short distance from Prospect Park and a block from the F/G Fort Hamilton Parkway station.
This spacious one-bedroom apartment features many classic details -- the architectural arches, refinished original hardwood floors, with crown and baseboard moldings -- but with upgrades and modern amenities galore! With a generous layout, wonderful light, and abundant amenities this apartment will make a comfortable home for years to come.
The recently-renovated kitchen features natural light, a beautiful ceramic tile backsplash to match flecks of color in the granite countertops, with new under-cabinet lighting to show it off. A thoughtful redesign of the space expands the kitchen and creates a more open flow into the dining room. Additional space is granted by reversing a hall closet into a kitchen pantry, with adjustable custom shelving and new lighting. The previous tile floor was removed and restored to the original hardwood.
A full electrical upgrade includes new wiring throughout the unit, replacement/addition of modern outlets and light switches, many with USB options and dimmers, as well as dedicated AC outlets in the living room and bedroom, plus the installation of a breaker system, hard-wired smoke detectors, in-wall speaker wires, additional ceiling fixtures installed in the entryway, inside the closets, the pantry and in the living room which is also outfitted with a ceiling fan.
The extensive renovation of the bathroom highlights modern elegance with many new fixtures and lighting while preserving the beautiful, deep cast-iron bathtub. Notable upgrades include a new modern toilet, vanity and sink. A new mirrored wall cabinet with LED lighting, hard-wired to a wall switch, and new ceiling light fixture add great lighting and atmosphere to this windowed bath. The entire room has been re-tiled with new subway tiles, trim, and hardware, adding in-wall cabinetry and in-shower shelving for convenience, but the star of this bathroom is the gorgeous specialty Clé cement tile flooring, which is stunning!
The king-sized bedroom has both south- and west-facing windows with room to accommodate a home office, crib, or reading nook. In addition to a custom Elfa closet system, there is an additional free-standing second closet with mirror and lighting that can remain with the apartment. The large storage closet off the dining room also features the Elfa closet organization system.
All of the interior doors, moldings, trim, and jambs have been fitted with architecturally-appropriate replacements, including new hinges and handles. The radiator covers have been stripped and powder coated white to match the wall paint. The apartment sparkles from room to room.
Situated at the back of the building, this unit overlooks the trees and rooftops of the charming residential streets, loads of sky, and distant views of the Verrazano. Sunset views are yours all year long, and the changing light and leaves will enchant.
