You might think of split-levels as a throwback to your grandparents’ house, but when space is limited in a city apartment, the layout serves quite well for smart storage, privacy, and an open feel. All of these attributes apply to this completely charming two-bedroom at 69 South Oxford Street in Fort Greene. The fifth-floor spread has its public and private areas separated by a small staircase and it’s listed for either $950,000 or as a $3,500/month rental. To boot, it’s just steps from the park and Atlantic Terminal, located in the historic Roanoke Condos.
The Romanesque Revival building was built in 1890 by renowned Brooklyn architect Montrose W. Morris. It was renovated in 2005 and today has 22 condos, a live-in super, basement laundry room, and bike storage. It’s also pet-friendly and has an elevator.
This lovely unit benefits from a corner location with beautiful views of brownstone Brooklyn. The front door opens to a small foyer. To the left, up the stairs, is the living/dining room and kitchen. There’s a wood-burning corner fireplace to keep things cozy, and the kitchen has been outfitted with tons of cabinetry, a double oven, a dishwasher, and an oversized breakfast counter.
In the lower wing are a bathroom and two bedrooms with ample closet space. There are also two more large closets in the hall, in addition to basement storage.
