In Brooklyn Heights, high-ticket real estate is usually a historic brownstone or townhouse. And while this co-op does reside on 105 Montague Street, in a circa-1885 Queen Anne building that was once a hotel, the interior is a lot more modern than you may expect. This top-floor penthouse unit takes advantage of the building’s striking roof line. You’ve got skylights, soaring cathedral ceilings, and thoroughly modern finishes. It’s all asking $1.75 million.
This isn’t your average co-op—as the listing says: “This ‘modern loft meets Paris atelier’ is the antidote to the cookie-cutter two-bedroom blahs.” The cathedral ceilings in the living room reach up to 16 feet. There are also four skylights in the living room as well as some unique built-in storage space.
It’s a duplex apartment connected by a spiral staircase. The stairs, along with the exposed brick, make this feel more like a contemporary, bona fide loft apartment. Who would have thought you could find one of those in Brooklyn Heights?
The kitchen, however, is much more upscale than the typical loft. It’s been renovated and expanded and is now outfitted with stainless steel appliances as well as a washer and dryer. We are liking that red tile backsplash.
There are two bedrooms and two bathrooms over 1,550 square feet. The listing says either bedroom could be used as the master bedroom—one boasts two skylights; the other has great views of Lower Manhattan.
Speaking of good views, the apartment also comes with its own private roof deck. In one direction you’ve got views of the Manhattan skyline, in another you can see the Statue of Liberty. And if you want to get even closer, 105 Montague Street is located only a few blocks from the Brooklyn Heights Promenade, which has some of the best skyline views in the city.
