In 1926, 24 Monroe Place put its 53 apartments on the market for the first time. The building stood tall, as it does today, over Brooklyn Heights as an elegant beacon of what city living should look and feel like. It came into the neighborhood touting the apartments distinctive arrangement, and heralding the spaciousness each home provides. It flaunted just how well the floorplans emphasize practicality while maximizing comfort. And now after nearly a century, Ideal Properties Group invites you to come see what luxury looks like in the 21st Century.
24 Monroe Place apartment 5D is a stunning home thats been entirely renovated to modern tastes, yet it maintains the original details that belong on such an historic block. The front door opens into a real foyer with two full closets (one cedar-lined), that leads into a gallery. The attention to detail paid in this room cant be overlooked. Striking hardwood floors gleam beneath the chandelier and art rails. Moldings, wainscoting and original beams have recently been refinished.
From the gallery you can see into one of the rarest things an apartment in Brooklyn can offer today: The Formal Dining Room. This refinished oversized room awaits your customization, as well at its next event. Not conjoined with the living space, this independent room stands ready for large gatherings and allows for separation and excellent flow, when entertaining. Have the book club meeting here while the game (or cartoons) are enjoyed in the living room. Though this large and versatile room was designed for a bygone era, the separation it provides makes it even more valuable today.
The roomy galley kitchen with custom cabinetry, stone countertops, new flooring and stainless-steel appliances is ready for a quick breakfast or a grand feast. Western light comes in through the window and there is more than enough room to for proper mise en place.
Back through the gallery and you will enter the 21 living room. This exceptional and classically proportioned space has high ceilings, a modern ceiling fan, and lovely treetop views over Monroe Place that reveal the Freedom Tower west in the distance. Custom built-ins are individually illuminated and there are more than enough shelves for even the most ardent of bibliophiles. Between the stacks sits an oversized living area with a lustrous original parquet floor and a working wood-burning fireplace. Living rooms this big are no longer built. You could set up a desk space or reading nook and still have more than enough space for a lush sitting area with large couches and a table. And of course, all the possibilities will only be enhanced by the roaring fire on chilly evenings.
Both bedrooms will fit King-sized beds. Read that again because its true. Both bedrooms are large enough to fit King-sized beds! Both bedrooms also have two full-sized closets and new ceiling fans. This is rare in Brooklyn, let alone in The Heights.
The larger bedroom looks out over Monroe Place and gets excellent light with western views. As it is 15 long, beyond the bed, desks, drawers, and side tables, the room is primed for just about any arrangement that you could want.
At 14 long, the 2nd bedroom has more than enough room for your furniture and dressers and side tables. The two closets are very spacious and, best of all, this bedroom has a full bathroom en suite with shower. This bathroom, with subway tile and modern fixtures, really adds a level of privacy unachievable in a hallway bath.
Past the large linen closet through the hall stands the main full bathroom, which just went through a stunning renovation. It keeps the classic style but updates, including impeccable new brass fixtures and vanity, a rain shower, classic subway tile, and a new tile floor, bring fresh luxury into focus. The shower and bath are separate and allow you to spread out in true comfort while the west facing window allows sunny natural light in.
Luxury doesnt end when you leave the apartment. 24 Monroe Place has the amenities you are looking for in a co-op. You can use keyless entry to get into the beautiful lobby area with its benches, two elevators and a package and mail space. There is a live-in super as well as a full-time porter. A beautiful roof deck has stunning southern views of Brooklyn, NY Harbor and the Statue of Liberty all the way down to the Verrazzano Bridge. A beautiful modern and new laundry room is being completed right now. There is bike storage but, maybe most importantly, 5D comes with its own large private storage cage.
With its old-world class and new-school taste, the new 24 Monroe Place welcomes you to take a look at the apartment you deserve. Please schedule your private viewing today.
