If you like your city with a side of country, you’ll love this Brooklyn Heights duplex penthouse on Remsen Street, asking $2.675 million. This place is the definition of the best of both worlds: a city pad with a bucolic vibe, original details with modern technology, plus it’s spacious and has a private planted deck while still being close to transportation and neighborhood hot spots. Yes, this penthouse definitely earns the title of most well-rounded.
An elevator takes you directly to a private landing. Inside, the large living room has coffered ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace, custom bookshelves, and a south-facing bay window. The 400-square-foot irrigated deck is right off the living room for dining with great views. Back inside, the dining room has two closets for storing that wedding china you still haven’t used, along with a decorative mantel and window seat with views of the street.
The high-end chef’s kitchen has custom cherry cabinets, granite countertops, tiled backsplash, top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, slate tile floors, and custom lighting. Also on the main level are a powder room and large hall closet with double doors.
Upstairs, the master suite has southern light and serene harbor views. There’s also a decorative mantel and a custom walk-in closet with vanity area. There’s also a sumptuous windowed bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub, custom sink, and white and grey tiles. And right outside is a home office with built-ins. Down the hall are two other bedrooms, a bathroom with skylight, and a stackable washer and dryer.
90 Remsen Street has an ornate Romanesque Revival façade of stone and light brick. The seven-unit townhouse co-op is surrounded by other mansions on a tree-lined block near the Promenade, Brooklyn Bridge Park and all the neighborhood shops and restaurants.
