Here’s a $2.995 million garden duplex at 132 State Street in Brooklyn Heights with a gorgeous private backyard. The 25-foot-wide brownstone apartment features 2,275 square feet on the garden and parlor levels. And it’s almost an insult to call the 1,000-square-foot rear garden “just” a backyard. It’s actually more like an outdoor living room, but we’ll get to that later.
Inside, the double parlor features 11-foot ceilings, original details and northern exposures. The master bedroom has a large walk-in closet and a dual entry bathroom for equal access from the master and the parlor. There’s also a second bedroom that can double as an office on this level.
Downstairs there’s a third bedroom, a kitchen and a dining area. The chef’s kitchen features stainless steel appliances and countertops and opens to the dining space. Off the kitchen, there’s an office overlooking the Bluestone patio. There’s also a bright den with beautiful built-ins and two sets of French doors leading out to the patio.
Now for the heavenly, landscaped outdoor living room, which has multiple seating areas and a fire pit. This is the perfect place to gather with friends, dine al fresco, or just sit out and soak up some vitamin D.
132 State Street is a self-managed co-op on a tree-lined block in the coveted neighborhood of Brooklyn Heights. It’s near dining and shopping along Atlantic Avenue and Montague, and within walking distance of Brooklyn Bridge Park and the Promenade. You can also check out the farmers market at Cadman Plaza and Brooklyn Historical Society. And don’t forget Garfield and Odie! It’s a pet-friendly building.
