Located in the pre-war co-op complex known as Berkeley Square at 1701 Albemarle Road in Brooklyn’s Flatbush neighborhood near Prospect Park, this pristinely renovated three-bedroom, two-bath apartment offers more than just living space for $1,250,000. With a loft-like layout, this three-bedroom home is also a corner unit with three exposures and treetop views, in an Art Deco building with gracious amenities like full-time door staff and access to dedicated parking.
At first glance, the apartment is a sea of bright white and cool wood, with an open-plan common area. Clever architect-designed built-ins make the loft layout easy to manage, including a “floating” closet wall in the entry area with plenty of storage space and three mirrored sliding doors. Newly installed wide-plank oak flooring found throughout the home is neighbor-proofed with a cork soundproofing subfloor.
The bright, open living and dining space is framed by a wall of large east-facing windows. A sleek and stylish kitchen has endless counter space, quartz worktops, filtered hot and cold water, a recessed appliance garage, and a wine fridge. There’s a breakfast bar for casual dining and a hefty baker’s island for creating. The kitchen is lined with custom cabinetry highlighted by recessed lighting.
Just off the kitchen is a second common room that would make a perfect office space, den, library, or media room. With co-op permissions in place, walls can be built and removed to make the home’s layout even more flexible.
Removed from the apartment’s common areas for added privacy, three bedrooms sit behind a system of pocket doors along a hallway. The primary bedroom has two exposures and a custom closet with glass sliding doors and a built-in shelving system. This bedroom also gets a windowed full bath.
Two additional bedrooms feature stylish Flavor Paper wallpaper, colorful chandeliers, and custom built-ins. One of the two has an en-suite bath. That rare city perk, a dedicated laundry room, is here as well, with a full-sized washer/dryer with a surface above for folding and plenty of storage.
Berkeley Square is an Art Deco co-op complex just blocks from Prospect Park with strong financials and affordable maintenance. The building offers a full-time door staff, a live-in super, a full-time porter, a bike room, common outdoor space, extra storage available for rent, and parking in a gated adjacent lot for $75/month.
