As one of the elegant pre-war co-ops at 47 Plaza Street West in the 1928 Rosario Candela-designed building sometimes referred to as “Brooklyn’s Flatiron” due to its pizza-slice form, this three-bedroom home has the gracious architecture you’d expect from a landmarked residence. The interiors, however, are a pleasant surprise of sophisticated modern design and contemporary comforts. The building’s location at the border of Park Slope and Prospect Heights is just as lovely, with the entrance to Prospect Park across the street. The home is now asking $1,699,000.

The co-op shares the floor with only one other apartment. Enter through a formal entrance gallery with a large coat closet; the gallery opens to a sun-filled dining room with an equally spacious living room beyond. The apartment boasts nine-foot ceilings, seven closets, and two-and-a-half baths.

The open layout in the living and dining areas is complemented by gorgeous views of the historic Park Slope and the trees of Prospect Park. Well-maintained wood floors contrast with sunlit white walls and pre-war ceiling details.

The renovated windowed pass-through kitchen is a winner in both form and function. Blanco Arabescato marble countertops meet an eye-catching silver-grey tiled backsplash and custom millwork.

In addition to plenty of storage, a serious appliance package includes a paneled Sub-Zero refrigerator and Bosch cooktop, oven, and dishwasher.

The south-facing primary bedroom has a spa-like en-suite bath and treetop views. Unique to this spacious bedroom are two large closets.

The second bedroom also has its own charming, renovated windowed bath. A third, smaller bedroom is located across the apartment just off the living room. This compact chamber, which boasts an en-suite powder room, would make a perfect office or guest room. It could also be used as a dedicated laundry room, as it contains a full-sized washer/dryer.

The building’s elegant lobby features two elevator banks; elevators have beautiful wood-paneled interiors. The co-op offers daily mail and newspaper delivery to your door as well as full-time door and elevator attendants, a live-in resident manager, and basement storage. In addition to the coveted neighborhood’s wealth of cultural offerings and the park, the 2/3 and B/Q subway lines stop nearby.
