If you think it’s pretty cool that Michelle Williams bought an historic townhouse in Prospect Park South and is restoring it to its former glory, here’s a chance to live across the street at 1409 Albemarle Road–and maybe pick up a few renovation tips. You won’t need them, though, as the two-bedroom co-op has been thoroughly renovated by previous owners, so you can move right in. The picturesque yet convenient neighborhood is no secret, but nearby destinations like The Farm on Adderley, Lark cafe and a host of others continue to draw attention and new neighbors.
The completely customized space has refinished hardwood floors and new windows throughout. The floor plan shows a generous layout and a large living space.
In the cozy kitchen you’ll find butcher block countertops and more than enough cabinet space; the separate dining area features charming modern floral wall treatment.
The home’s two bedrooms are well-separated (though the smaller one seems to be lacking a closet and is a little far from the bath); the bathroom is large and pretty, though, with a separate shower and claw foot bathtub. There are five closets throughout the apartment.
There’s a private planted terrace, the perfect Brooklyn escape.
The landmarked elevator building offers a renovated laundry room, a bike room and a super on the premises.
The neighborhood is filled with restaurants, cafes, bars, grocery stores (including the Flatbush Food Co-op), near four subway lines, and, of course, Prospect Park, making the neighborhood, as its newest celebrity addition put it, one that “feels like the suburbs but is next to an express train.”
