This apartment comes from one of the grand prewar co-op buildings off Eastern Parkway, located in the Prospect Heights Apartment House District and designed to be Brooklyn’s alternative to Park Avenue. Located at 135 Eastern Parkway and known as the Turner Towers, the 1926 building holds nearly 200 lovely prewar pads. This one, now on the market for $749,000, is an oversized one- bedroom with beamed ceilings, plaster details, herringbone parquet, the original hardware, and vintage doors. Those classic elements are joined by some more modern, customized touches in storage. The Prospect Heights apartment’s grown significantly in value since 2008, when it last sold for $450,000.
The entire apartment spans 882 square feet, with the living room roughly 280 square feet in size. In here, the owners took advantage of the high ceilings to add customized floor-to-ceiling shelving and track lighting. All the white the prewar touches remain on display.
A wide foyer was decked out with some more storage.
The renovated eat-in kitchen was designed as a blend of new updates and vintage details. Wood and white cabinetry, plus a white backsplash, offset one another.
The bathroom was renovated too, with restored tile, modern hardware and a separate shower stall. The space maintains the original cast iron bathtub.
Finally, the spacious bedroom boasts ample closet space and views stretching past the Brooklyn Botanic Garden to the Verrazano Bridge. In fact, the building is located right across from the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Brooklyn Museum and Prospect Park. And much like the co-ops you’d find along Park Avenue, Turner Towers offers white glove service with an elegant marble lobby, gym, tea garden and playroom.
