In the charming neighborhood of Cobble Hill near the border of equally charming Brooklyn Heights, on a tree-lined picture-postcard street, this sweet, old-fashioned (yet updated) garden apartment appears as cozy as they come. The 1,100-square-foot two-bedroom co-op at 119 Pacific Street, asking $1.195 million, looks–except for the price (which isn’t even that bad)–almost the way apartments in this part of south Brooklyn used to look, from its wood-burning fireplace to its enchanting backyard.
This garden floor-through is accessed through a private doorway and begins with a large south-facing living area with exposed brick, and that toasty fireplace. There’s room for dining, entertaining and cooking with a homey breakfast bar and kitchen setup, clean white against a cheerful blue wall, with brand new stainless steel appliances and ample storage space.
A versatile office nook–with, again, a suprising amount of storage–sits just inside the front door of the main room.
In the quiet rear of the floor-through are two gracious bedrooms; the master boasts a walk-in closet and access to a pretty and verdant semi-private garden (though there’s no mention of with whom it is shared)–clearly the perfect place for an afternoon catnap–or an after-work catnip. An updated bathroom offers a deep soaking tub, everybody’s favorite subway tiles, mosaic marble tiled flooring and double sinks.
There’s a washer/dryer and storage in the basement (easily accessed through the hallway) and the co-op is cool with pets. The location would charm just about anyone, with Trader Joes, Brooklyn Bridge Park, Whole Foods, restaurants on Court and Smith Streets and a veritable alphabet soup of subway lines all nearby.
