Few things sound better than living above an 1843 Brooklyn Heights brownstone with the Promenade literally steps away, and that’s what this 1,300-square-foot apartment at 28 Remsen Street has to offer. And more than that, the $1.275 million co-op offers multiple skylights that are more like sunroofs because they actually open to let in the breeze.
Enter the one-bedroom apartment to find a 27-foot-by-16-foot living room with a wood-burning fireplace and two skylights. The space is defined by wood-beamed ceilings, original planked pine floors, and whitewashed exposed brick walls. An open kitchen with exposed brick walls and a wood block counter top sits in the corner of the room.
There’s a center room with a third skylight that is best suited for a den, library, or home office. The listing suggests an easy conversion to a second bedroom as a possibility, but it might be a tight squeeze. The bathroom has a soaking tub and a stall shower, and there’s laundry in the unit. But best of all is an exclusive roof deck with 360-degree views of the city, downtown Manhattan in particular. Fourth of July will never be the same.
