Yes, a top floor apartment can often mean an annoying walk up the stairs to get there. And for this prewar building in Park Slope, at 523 8th Street, that’s likely the case. This apartment is located on the top floor of the four-story, 11-unit building. But we’ll venture to say this walk-up is worth it, considering how charming the space is. It’s a two-bedroom rental with details like tin ceilings, carved entryways, and lovely views of the treetops below. It’s also just a half block away from Prospect Park.
Three windows flank the large living room, offering the views that make top-floor apartments so special. The current renter has the apartment set up with a more formal living room, which is pictured above, and then a more casual TV room. At around 1,000 square feet, the apartment is large enough for separate formal areas.
As if the two living rooms are not enough, there’s also a formal dining room. This is located right off the kitchen, separated by a breakfast bar. Those parquet floors and high ceilings you’re seeing are throughout the apartment.
How wonderful is this kitchen? It’s rare to see a kitchen so nice in a rental apartment. Those are ceramic, Moroccan floor tiles, complemented by a red tile backsplash, exposed brick and ample CaesarStone countertops. Fun kitchen perks include a dishwasher and a wine fridge. A window in this room also brings in some light.
The master bedroom faces the front of the apartment, getting lots of light and some good Brooklyn views. The second bedroom, not pictured, is large enough to fit a queen bed, according to the listing.
Bonus room! This den is located right off the master bedroom and could be used as a home office, nursery or small third bedroom. Overall, the apartment is boasting plenty of space and it’s all lovely. We think it’s worth the walk up, do you?
