ICONIC VIEWS!! Sponsor Sale - Available for the first time, residence 6B presents a rare opportunity to wake up with the sun rising over Grand Army Plaza and go to bed as it sets over New York Harbor. The apartment is a fully renovated three-bed two-bath perched on the top floor of The Berkeley, one of Park Slope's premier buildings. There is no Board Approval required for purchase. In addition to the extensive work in front of the walls, the electric wiring has been completely replaced and a new breaker-panel installed. There are seven closets, a linen cabinet and built-in bookshelf. Most impressively, 6B boasts all four exposures (north, south, east and west) across 12 windows which frame iconic views of Grand Army Plaza, Park Slope, Downtown Manhattan, New Jersey, Staten Island and the water all around. Entering the residence, the hallway provides two oversized closets. Immediately to the left is the first of three bedrooms. Within, the south and west-facing windows offer sweeping views of Park Slope and New York Harbor. The windowed kitchen has been renovated from tip to toe: recessed lighting, all new cabinetry, tile backsplash, Caesarstone countertops and broad floor-tiles. The stainless steel appliances include Samsung 5-burner range, full-sized oven, microwave as well as an oversized dual-door refrigerator/freezer. There is a twin-drawer dishwasher from Fisher & Paykel. The sunken living room features over 250 sq/ft of usable space and the ceilings are just under 10' tall. The east-facing windows look over the treetops towards the buildings along Plaza Street East. The generous foyer plays into the grandeur of a bygone era but if practicality is key, it can be used as a spacious dining area. The first full bathroom has new tiles, new vanity, new mirror and toilet, reglazed bathtub and recessed lighting. The large west-facing window brings ample light and air into the room. Across the hall is a deep linen closet with cabinet above. The second bedroom's west window frame's Park Slope and New York Harbor. The corner windows capture everything from the Montauk Club next door to the Freedom Tower in downtown Manhattan. The primary bedroom houses a corner window as well - this one framing the trees and curved buildings of Grand Army Plaza. Both bedrooms come with two floor-to-ceiling closets for clothing and storage. As with the hallway bathroom, the en-suite has been completely reconstructed and includes a stall shower, oversized window, new tiling and new fixtures. Built in 1941, The Berkeley is a six-story elevator building with two roof decks: one facing the arch at Grand Army Plaza and the other providing stunning views of Brooklyn, Manhattan and New York Harbor in between. The building entrance sits in the middle of the block, flanked by lush, fragrant gardens. The building offers shared laundry and bike storage - both accessible via the elevators. Additionally, there is a storage room and parking garage within the building - please note there is a waitlist for both. There is a live-in super as well as part-time doorman: 8am to midnight, seven days a week. The building is pet-friendly. The 2/3 train is at the end of the block with the B/Q trains just beyond on Flatbush. Atlantic Barclays is down the hill and houses myriad subways as well as the LIRR to get out of town. There is a wealth of nearby restaurants and cafes on 7th Ave and on Flatbush. There is an even wider selection of food and shopping on Vanderbilt and Washington in neighboring Prospect Heights. Union Market is around the corner along with Soul Cycle, an enormous Crunch gym and multiple pharmacies. Grand Army Plaza plays host to a spectacular Farmer's Market on Saturday mornings. Just beyond, the Brooklyn Library, Botanic Gardens and Brooklyn Museum line Eastern Parkway. The Park Slope Food Coop is two blocks down on Union and saving the best for last, Prospect Park serves as a respite from the hustle of city life.
