A co-op in a prewar apartment house in Brooklyn Heights has a balance of period style and tastefully renovated features such as the updated kitchen. The attractive and well-proportioned place is located at 38 Livingston Street on what appears to be on the top floor of the six-story elevator building.
The entrance has a foyer with a closet, opening into the spacious combined living and dining room, which has decorative wainscoting on the walls, a walk-in closet, and double windows facing east with a view of Downtown Brooklyn. The floors are hardwood throughout, and most of the radiators have built-in covers.
Open to the living/dining room via a wide doorway, the kitchen appears recently renovated and has white Shaker-style cabinets and stainless steel counters and appliances. It has a south-facing window.
The two bedrooms both have double windows facing north, closets and molding. One features a full wall of closets, the other a built-in bookcase covering one wall.
The bathroom also faces north, with an original leaded-glass window. The room has two doors, one leading to the hall, the other to one of the bedrooms.
The bathroom appears to be excellent condition with original or at least vintage features, including subway tile walls, white mosaic tile floor, pedestal sink, Edwardian medicine cabinet, and Art Deco tub and sconce. A grab bar has been added over the tub.
The building dates from 1914 and retains its period branding as The Colonial on the awning. It has a live-in super, a shared laundry room and additional storage in the basement.
We previously wrote about another apartment in the building, No 52, which listed for $1.25 million and sold in March for $1.31 million, according to PropertyShark.
This one is apartment No. 62, and is also asking for $1.25 million, with a relatively low maintenance — for Brooklyn Heights — of $1,302 a month. Listed by Heather McMaster, Ariane Dembs, Annette Glass at Corcoran, the unit went into contract over the weekend. Do you think it will close for more than ask?
