This classic pre-war penthouse at 200 Hicks Street in Brooklyn Heights sits atop one of the city’s oldest co-ops, built in 1910 by William A. Moring. This elegant apartment has the kind of charm and detail–high ceilings, skylights and French doors opening to reveal a private landscaped terrace–that brings to mind a Paris atelier–with the added bonus of New York Harbor and Manhattan skyline views. The two-bedroom home is asking $1.95 million.
A private marble stairway leads to a gracious gracious entry foyer; the home’s living area boasts a wood-burning fireplace. The space is both cozy and loft-like, with beamed ceilings and skylights.
A gorgeous, subtly colorful open kitchen is state-of-the-art. Nearby are a dining area and study, all bathed in light and overlooking the terrace. The second bedroom, currently used as a library, has pocket doors allowing use as a guest bedroom, and there is a second guest bath.
The master bedroom and bath are in a separate, secluded wing with ample storage and a washer dryer.
The penthouse terrace may be the best thing about it. Between the building and the neighborhood, it’s the perfect spot to revel in magical Manhattan skyline and water views. The apartment offers central air conditioning throughout, and there is more storage in the basement along with a bike room.
