No matter what your spiritual beliefs, we think it’s safe to argue that throughout history churches have represented some of the most beautiful architecture in the world, and the historic Presbyterian Church at 99 Clinton Street in Brooklyn Heights is no exception. Within its rich, mid-nineteenth-century stone exterior you will find this thoughtfully converted two-bedroom duplex loft, blessed with double-height ceilings, original wide-plank hardwood floors, exposed beams, and a series of stunning stained glass windows that will make living here feel like your own little piece of heaven.
As you enter you are greeted by a 500-square-foot living room with a cathedral-height ceiling, wood-burning fireplace, custom built-in shelving, and a gorgeously exposed wood beam that frames the space like a beautiful photograph.
The efficient and fully-renovated kitchen has a functional and fun pass-through to the living room and direct access to the open dining area for easy entertaining. An adjacent corner space tucked in between the kitchen and living area makes a perfect den or can be converted into a third bedroom.
The stairs to the second floor, which features a versatile landing that can be used as a small office, reveal two large bedrooms, each with its own set of magnificent, nearly-floor-to-ceiling stained glass windows and plenty of closet space. Both the master’s en suite and the additional bathroom on this floor have been completely updated to reflect the rest of the home’s beautiful finishes.
With its prime Brooklyn Heights location steps from bustling Montague Street, minutes from all major subway lines and downtown Manhattan, and super close to the new Brooklyn Bridge Park, it doesn’t take a divine revelation to know this one-of-a-kind $2.2 million residence is the answer to your prayers.
