On a gorgeous, tree-lined street in Brooklyn Heights lies this fully-renovated apartment at the top of the landmarked former YMCA building at 62 Joralemon Street. As we wrote about in September, the loft-style duplex was given new life by Elizabeth Roberts of Ensemble Architects, who used a combination of salvaged and new materials to create the ultimate Brooklyn pad. And it can now be yours for $2.295 million.
The first level has a large living and dining room with 16-foot ceilings, north-facing windows and enough bookshelves to give off that scholarly vibe if you’re trying to impress someone. In the corner there’s a top-of-the-line kitchen with a giant pantry.
Upstairs there are three bedrooms, including a nice master with amazing city views and access to the roof deck. But of course, we’ll get to that later. The master also has a walk-in closet and an en suite bathroom. The other two rooms are currently set up as a nursery and a study, and there’s additional closet space and laundry on the floor. There’s also a staircase taking you from the landing to that terrace.
Bask in the warmth of the sun while you’re checking out the river and the city from this landscaped treasure, which is sure to be a hit with friends. There’s also an elevated dining area for those who want to feast while watching the sun set over the water. Yes, this is the Brooklyn people dream of.
