A village in the Dutch province of North Holland. The name of one of President Andrew Jackson’s Indian Commissioners responsible for removing the Cherokee and Chickasaw Indians beyond the Mississippi River (later known as the Trail of Tears). And the street where you will find this impeccable corner loft in Brooklyn Heights.
Located at 96 Schermerhorn Street this one-bedroom, one-bath beauty is looking for a new occupant, and at well under $1 million we’re sure someone will be learning how to spell the name of their new address sooner rather than later.
Renovated by a Dwell featured architect, the apartment’s open layout is drenched with light from ten oversized windows. Twelve-foot wood ceilings adorned with random-width Hemlock barn siding add warmth and charm while bleached reclaimed oak flooring and architectural light fixtures lend an air of modernity.
Speaking of modernity, the right-sized kitchen with a two-person eating bar is the ultimate in contemporary design. A stunning combination of statuary white marble, glass, walnut, and stainless steel provide the form, while ample counter space, plenty of storage, a 36” Viking fridge, convention range, and extra-large sink provide the function.
The 200-square foot bedroom with a glass-topped wall has open north and east city views and the new windowed bathroom features an oversized marble shower, radiant heated floors, Hans Grohe faucets, a wall-mounted Toto WC, custom walnut vanity and two huge upper cabinets.
However, the best feature of this lovely home being offered at $750,000 may just be the plethora of built-in cabinets in every room. With over 30-linear-feet of custom storage, including 47 drawers, the pack rats of the world will rejoice!
Situated in an Art Deco tower built in 1928 for St. John’s College and conveniently located near fine restaurants, shopping, movies, banks, Brooklyn Bridge Park and ten subway lines, this lovely and luxurious apartment is P-E-R-F-E-C-T, even if your spelling isn’t.
