The garden duplex at 652 Lafayette Avenue has all of the features necessary for 21st century living: keyless private entry, built-in Bluetooth sound system and wall-mounted AC/heating. Simultaneously, it maintains classic Brooklyn charm via a brownstone exterior, exposed brick interior and shimmering plank flooring throughout.
The spacious kitchen features stainless steel appliances including a large five-burner gas range, full-sized oven, dishwasher and French-door refrigerator with ice-maker and filtered water. There is ample cabinet space above, under-cabinet lighting below and the white granite waterfall countertop is perfect for morning coffee, a gathering of friends and a relaxing glass of wine at the end of the day.
Both bedrooms on the main level have generous closets and can fit queen-sized beds with plenty of space for additional furniture. The upstairs bath is adorned with a large soaking tub, rain shower head and sub-sink storage.
On the lower level, just passed the semi-private laundry, there is a massive rec-room. Currently setup as a guest room, the space is fantastic as a home-office, music studio, enviable game room, media room, gym, workshop with 300 sq/ft and an en-suite bath, the possibilities are endless. Note: the rec room is accessed through a shared hallway. Rec room ceiling height is 63".
The crown jewel of the apartment is the spacious private garden. In its current configuration, the patio is large enough for deck furniture, fire pit and large grill. The garden beyond is bursting with fauna and has a small, lighted path. With a gentle breeze rustling through the surrounding trees, evenings in the space are singularly tranquil - a calm oasis protected from the frenetic hustle of the surrounding borough.
Renovated in 2016, the residences at 652 Lafayette come with tankless water heaters providing eco friendly hot water on demand. There is a video intercom for welcoming guests and package delivery and the monthlies are low.
The apartment is less than a half block away from Herbert Von King park with a beautiful community garden in between. In addition to a fantastic dog run, HVK Park plays host to the four Bs: baseball, basketball, barbecuing and (sun)bathing. For a refreshing dip, head to the Kosciuszko pool a block north
Neighborhood conveniences include the Bedford Nostrand G train at the end of the block and Bed Stuys finest restaurants and cafes sprinkled all around: Sugar Hill, Do or Dive, Speedy Romeo, warude, Peaches, and Saraghina to name a few. Best of all, 2020s City Streets programs brought less cars and more open space for enjoying row after row of gorgeous townhomes.
