Filled with eye-pleasing details and surrounded by an abundance of outdoor space for dining, dancing, or enjoying the view, we’d find it hard to leave this three-bedroom Brooklyn Heights penthouse. Asking $4,995,000, the 2,000-square-foot full-floor condo residence at 72 Poplar Street is a study in considered interior design, wrapped by 2,458 square feet of terrace and stunning views of lower Manhattan through walls of oversized windows.
A keyed elevator opens into a spacious entry hall, introducing the bespoke millwork provided by Sylvain Frey Atelier that can be found throughout the apartment. Artful finishes and modern convenience take the form of new door hardware, recessed lighting, zoned heating/AC, an in-home refuse room and compactor, marble baths with heated floors, and automated blackout shades.
The open great room is visually anchored by a modern gas fireplace set into a dramatic bluestone wall. From the dining area, double doors lead to the roof deck.
The kitchen is both perfectly curated and welcoming with Caesarstone worktops, Ann Sacks tile backsplash, and an impressive suite of appliances that includes a SubZero fridge and a Wolf double oven, a warming drawer, and a five-burner stove with pot filler. A 46-bottle wine cooler awaits a well-edited selection.
The opportunity for outdoor living is never more than a few steps away. This rooftop oasis–courtesy of Brook Landscape–boasts in-ground plantings served by a new irrigation system. Low-voltage electricity and lighting transform the space into a garden wonderland after dark.
The primary bedroom includes a walk-in dressing room/office and a tranquil en-suite bath with a soaking tub and separate shower. Design details reveal an artful eye for color and the quality of custom millwork.
A second bedroom suite offers outdoor access. Across the hall from the third bedroom is the home’s third full bath.
Built in 1912, the landmarked 72 Poplar is an Italian Renaissance Revival-style standout in the historic neighborhood. Formerly a police station, the building was converted to a 14-unit boutique condominium in 2014. Amenities include virtual security, an on-site super, a lounge, a fitness center, a locked package room, and a bike room.
