If your apartment’s got views of the Brooklyn Bridge, New York Harbor and the Lower Manhattan skyline, you may as well enjoy it through massive, beautiful windows. This two-bedroom co-op at 188 Columbia Heights in Brooklyn Heights has both the views and the windows. It’s a lovely 1,600-square-foot apartment that takes up a floor of a historic 1800s brownstone. This area of the neighborhood, sometimes referred to as Columbia Heights, is distinguished by a row of prominent mansions and townhouses that sit atop the BQE and look out onto Lower Manhattan. The prestige of the location does not come cheap—this unit is asking $2.7 million.
The living room is the centerpiece of the apartment, with a working wood-burning fireplace and the wall-length bay windows. Views looks out to the north, south and west. Trust us: these are the types of views that will make every visitor officially envious of your apartment.
There’s another fireplace in the adjacent dining room. The entire apartment is outfitted with wood floors and well-kept period detailing, including tons of beautiful woodwork.
How many fireplaces can you fit into a two-bedroom apartment? Apparently three. According to the listing, both bedrooms come with walk-in closets. There’s also a closet for a washer/dryer, two full bathrooms, and central AC.
Right outside the apartment is the Brooklyn Heights Promenade, which is famous for, of course, its views. But who needs a walk along the promenade when you’ve got a brownstone apartment like this?
