If your dream of New York City living means clean, contemporary lines, sleek finishes, lots of white and pops of bright, but your life–or your budget–is in the land of brick and brownstone, head south a bit and you’ll find that this chic duplex, asking $1.45M, might be just right. While this two-bedroom condo at 349 16th Street in Park Slope may not be super-spacious–it comes in at just under 1,000 square feet–a 300-square-foot private wrap-around patio definitely adds more to life than just square footage. For a single person or couple seeking enough room for frequent guests, the layout really clicks; it could also work as a starter home for a young family that can’t yet claim the adjective “growing,” or empty nesters-to-be with a frequently-visiting fledgling.

This custom-designed home is situated on the sun-filled second and third floors of a five-unit boutique condominium building in South Slope within two blocks of Prospect Park. Carefully-considered renovations and designer flourishes include epoxy-painted wood floors, exposed brick walls, Caesarstone window sills, Serena & Lily globe pendants, artfully designed kitchen and bath fixtures and more; triple exposures make everything that much brighter.

The apartment’s lower floor is anchored by a large, open living/dining room.

Also on this floor is a pint-sized but playfully-hued second bedroom, great for guests or kids, and a renovated bath (one of two).

On the higher floor is a private, spacious master bedroom and renovated bath; glass window-walls in the bedroom open onto that wrap-around terrace with a retractable awning for rain-proof entertaining or respite from midday sun.

As you’d expect from any modern pad, high-tech solutions have arrived: A built-in speaker system offers individual volume control in each room (even the terrace). There’s also an ADT security system, recessed lighting, individually controlled heat and A/C in each room (heat is included in the condo’s low common charges) and a washer/dryer. In addition to custom shelving in the closets, there’s a large, private storage room in the basement.

Though the decor might say Chelsea or Williamsburg, you’re surrounded by the laid-back and lovely South Slope, with a two-block walk to the park along with shopping, cafes and dining on 5th and 7th Avenues and the F and G trains steps away.
