Make this authentic and dramatic 1800 SF loft with your very own private PARKING SPACE and expansive 400 SF PATIO your new home just in time for summer! With a renovated kitchen, private outdoor space, and soaring 13 ceilings, this capacious apartment is a masterpiece of form and function in a Boerum Hill location central to every subway line and the best restaurants and shopping in all of brownstone Brooklyn. Far grander in scale than any of the neighboring new development, this is a not-to-be missed space both indoors, and out, that is a dream come true. Prepare to be amazed by the oversized living and dining area with magnificent scale, and the perfect flow from inside to out. With room for a large dining table and as many chairs as you see fit, get ready to start hosting parties again. Oversized windows and sliding glass doors let light and views of greenery pour inside every room. There are many configurations possible; the current owner has oversized sofas and tables, a sitting area with a daybed, and an office. Multiple windows make it easy to add one or two more bedrooms to the space. Off the living space is the first of two bathrooms in this grand apartment. Enjoy a classic black and white palette and a linen closet too. Currently using window units for AC, this building does allow the installation of central AC, and the large private patio makes this installation a breeze. The adjacent fully renovated kitchen offers Caesarstone London Fog countertops, handmade gray backsplash tiles, and a full suite of Thermador appliances, including a 5-burner range with hood, stove, microwave, and 36" fridge with ice-maker and filtered water. The gray cabinetry is custom-made and highly functional, featuring a spice rack, pantry shelves, and drawers perfect for organizing your kitchen essentials and delicacies acquired from nearby specialty shops like Sahadis, Damascus, and Trader Joes. Across the living room is one of the largest primary suites you have ever seen, separated by oversized glass doors. This space is an oasis of calm, and has another set of sliders that lead to the private patio. The suite features a large walk-in closet with custom shelving, as well as a half bath with a second walk-in closet. This second walk-in closet would allow for easy conversion to a full bath with a shower and separate tub. The space is there for everything you could ever want, and offers the option for the creative buyer to put their own stamp on this unrivaled space. And of course, dont miss the private outdoor space, accessed via every room in the apartment. A bluestone patio juxtaposed with an aged brick wall with the perfect patina sets an elegant and European tone to this secretive, yet expansive patio. Spanning the entire 51 length of the apartment and including both water and electrical hook-ups, it is the perfectly shaded and private aerie from which you can host cocktails, read a book, or listen to the sounds of birds chirping and your neighbors koi pond burbling. A washer and dryer can easily be installed in the unit, as the electrical panel has even been upgraded to accommodate. Should you ever want to leave your incredible new home, this apartment comes with a dedicated parking space in the adjacent locked parking lot, included in the price. Situated in the back of the building, this home is tranquil but offers room to spare when you are ready for guests again. The Ex-Lax Building is one of the only true loft buildings in brownstone Brooklyn. Built in 1920 and converted to a cooperative in 1981, it features a roof deck with panoramic views, a live-in super, and common laundry (just a few steps from this apartment). At the nexus of Boerum Hill, Cobble Hill, Park Slope, Downtown Brooklyn, and Brooklyn Heights, youll be tucked away in complete solitude yet close to all you desire. The maintenance is 50% tax deductible and includes all utilities except your electric bill.
