In a classic pre-war loft building at 96 Schermerhorn Street known as Boerum Court, where Boerum Hill meets Downtown Brooklyn, this solidly-built co-op offers a flexible loft layout and the high ceilings and proportions to match. Custom additions have transformed the space into a unique home with Japanese-inspired details and modern conveniences. The apartment currently offers one bedroom and a home office but could easily gain a second bedroom.
With wide plank hardwood floors, exposed ceiling beams and wood paneling, the natural forest vibe adds tranquility to every room. Built-in lighting and a sound system fit right in.
An open kitchen boasts custom teak cabinets, a Miele cooktop, a DeLonghi oven, Liebherr fridge and poured concrete countertops continuing the natural-plus-high-tech vibe. Custom teak woodwork also includes a dry bar and storage everywhere.
Oversized windows add natural light to the custom lighting throughout the living room.
One very special highlight is the apartment’s master bath, with Moroccan handmade tiles, an amazing stainless steel Japanese soaking tub, a separate open rain shower and poured concrete sink. The bathroom, too, is wired for sound.
The spacious, raised master bedroom offers storage below, and can be kept closed or open.
The apartment’s front room is being used as a well-appointed home office with large desk, built-in shelving and a closet, and is “prepped to be closed if one needed.” There’s also a half bath just off the kitchen.
