134 Remsen Street, 3AB
An expansive two/convertible three bedroom full-floor co-op in a 31-foot wide brownstone on landmarked Remsen Street in Brooklyn Heights.
Dripping with pre-war details preserved from the gilded late-1800s era of grand-scale living in Brooklyn's longest-standing residential enclave, this expansive co-op comprises an entire floor of an Anglo-Italianate mansion. With a width of 31 feet and 10-foot, 9-inch ceilings, the volume and grandeur of space is felt everywhere, placing this home in the category of "truly special". Bright exposures to the north, south and east over treetops flood the residence with sunlight and cross breezes.
A luxurious floor-plan in which to spread out, complete with complementary formal living and dining rooms, each with fireplaces, joined by a renovated chef's kitchen to fulfill any entertainer's dream. A remarkable primary bedroom is at once enormous, at nearly 23' deep, and private, with dual exposures over serene Hunts Lane. A large second bedroom flanks the living room. Ample room exists to add a third bedroom to the front or back of the property while retaining a dining area and/or home office. A Bosch washer-dryer, two tastefully renovated bathrooms, rich hardwoods, period moldings and excellent closet space are all on offer.
Perfectly situated in the Brooklyn Heights Historic District between Henry and Clinton, 134 Remsen is a boutique co-op with an architectural presence and stature to suit its location. And said location is ideal, with just a short stroll to the 2/3/4/5, Promenade, shopping and dining on Montague/Atlantic, Brooklyn Bridge Park, DUMBO and Ferry Terminals, Cobble Hill's Court and Smith Street thoroughfares, and much more. This home is currently zoned for P.S. 8, and is close to Grace Church School, St. Ann's, Packer and Brooklyn Friends. The co-op permits 80% financing and pets with approval, and offers rare private parking on Hunts Lane (waitlist).
