The listing for this two-bedroom-plus-office co-op at 275 Degraw Street suggests the garden apartment will “satisfy even the most discerning ‘must have’ list,” and it certainly does seem to be that kind of place. Located on a charming Cobble Hill block in a 1900s brick row house, this spacious, renovated and well-appointed home ticks a lot of boxes for its $1.075 million ask: Two good-sized bedrooms and a bonus room, renovated kitchen, private back yard, central air-conditioning, washer/dryer, low monthlies.
But how many New Yorkers can brag that they come home daily to the scent of freshly-baked cookies?
Just around the block, the venerable Court Pastry Shop has been turning out batches of handmade cannoli, biscotti and other sweet treats since 1948; according to the listing agent: “One of the challenges of NY living is you can never control what happens on the other side of the walls you share…But imagine if you could control that dial and turn it to fresh baked goods? As you walk the halls of this lovely garden unit, the scents of fresh baked cookies, anise and other goodies fill the air.” Worried about the results of said baked goods as a constant temptation? There’s a Brooklyn Bodyburn right next door to keep you in check.
Beyond the baked goods department, entering the apartment through your private entrance you’ll be able to relax by the fire at the end of a long day.
The recently-renovated kitchen is outfitted with quartz countertops that are a dead ringer for marble (but are a dream to care for) and brand new appliances. In warmer weather, you can do your dining and entertaining al fresco in your private garden/back yard.
The master bedroom is spacious and there are radiant heated floors in the en suite bath (one of the apartment’s two bathrooms). There is also plenty of closet space and even more storage in the basement.
A third room can be an office, den or giant custom closet. Overall, even if the aroma of fresh baked goods doesn’t win you over, there’s plenty to love–and you’re living in one of Brooklyn’s most charming, family-friendly and desirable neighborhoods.
