The neighborhood’s gorgeous, the block is gorgeous, and all the gorgeous things Brooklyn Heights is known for (the Promenade, shops and cafes on Montague Street, Brooklyn Bridge Park, Pierrepont Playground) are steps away — and the inside of this $2.7 million apartment in the historic co-op at 61 Pierrepont Street has no trouble living up to its surroundings.
With a gracious and logical layout, the three-plus bedroom apartment is tastefully renovated and custom-configured beyond the standard bedrooms-and-common-space, all kind of squished together. There’s a living room and a dining room. Not only are the bedrooms on opposite sides, but one has a cozy den next door. Find an office. Find a guest suite. Got kids? No problem. In-laws? Did we mention the thing about the bedrooms being well separated? And, there’s an elevator.
The interiors here are as pretty as they are practical. Original architectural details are everywhere, including herringbone hardwood floors, decorative moldings and high ceilings throughout. Modern amenities are equally impressive, like a custom chef’s kitchen and a laundry room.
The living room has 10-foot ceilings, tons of sunlight and nearly 40 feet of south-facing windows looking out onto the treetops of Pierrepont Street. A wide arch with concealed original glass pocket doors opens to a large formal dining room.
The smart and modern chef’s kitchen is spacious and ready to get to work with granite counters, a Viking range, Thermador ovens, SubZero refrigerator, Miele dishwasher and Poggenpohl cabinetry.
On one end of the apartment, more pocket doors lead to a windowed sunny study/den, which opens onto the home’s third bedroom.
Back through the living room, a central hall with a double-depth coat closet leads to a quiet master bedroom with an ensuite marble bathroom. Adjacent is a large second bedroom; across the hall are the second full bathroom and the laundry room.
Besides having a perfect location, 61 Pierrepont boasts an elegant marble and stained glass entrance lobby and a common roof deck with those only-in-the-Heights river and city views, a live-in super, private storage and bike storage.
