About 272 Berkeley Place 1

The triplex at 272 Berkeley is breathtaking. Parquet wood floors and inlays, period plaster detail, mahogany window frames the entire building would be a time machine to Victoria-era living were it not for the addition of modern conveniences: private entrance, central air, in-unit laundry, FiOS and renovated kitchen & baths.

Entering the main floor of the house, the hallway outside the apartment offers a preview of the impeccable restoration and detail within. The parlor level holds a formal dining room with pantry and half-bath. The front of the house is a 400 sq/ft living room and the south-facing windows are framed by working embrasured (pocket) shutters. 12-foot ceilings create a grand atmosphere.

The kitchen houses stainless appliances including dishwasher and microwave. With two windows offering a corner exposure, the space feels light and airy. Beyond the east-facing window is an intimate deck, perfect for enjoying morning coffee or a quiet evening.

On the garden level, the primary bedroom is attached to a spa-like ensuite bathroom. The freestanding tub, stall glass shower and twin sinks are anchored by marble floors. Beyond the bathroom wall is a massive walk-in closet. Continuing on this level, the second and third bedrooms as well as second full bath complete the picture.

Outside, the private garden offers an escape from the bustle of city-living, a stage for entertaining guests or perhaps a bit of both. The finished basement is ready to be a home-office, music studio, enviable game room, media room, gym, workshop with over 300 sq/ft of space, the possibilities are endless.

272 Berkeley is perched near the top of Berkeley place, just off Plaza Street West which just finished the Plaza and Berm Restoration: new sidewalks, new benches and new decorative fences. The 2/3 train is at the end of the block with the B/Q trains just beyond on Flatbush. Atlantic Barclays is down the hill and houses myriad subways as well as the LIRR to get out of town.

There is a wealth of nearby restaurants and cafes on 7th Ave and on Flatbush. There is an even wider selection of food and shopping on Vanderbilt and Washington in neighboring Prospect Heights. Union Market is around the corner along with an enormous Crunch gym and multiple pharmacies nearby.

Grand Army Plaza plays host to a spectacular Farmer's Market on Saturday mornings. Just beyond, the Brooklyn Library, Botanic Garden and Brooklyn Museum line Eastern Parkway. The Park Slope Food Coop is two blocks down on Union and saving the best for last, Prospect Park serves as a respite from the hustle of city life.

Impeccable restoration, incredible location and written up in the New York Times numerous times over the last five decades don't miss the opportunity to call 272 Berkeley home.
