This two-bedroom, 2.5-bath duplex condo has a number of attractive features, including a clean, streamlined design and two outdoor spaces. It’s located on the third and fourth floors of a newly converted four-unit brownstone at 756 St. Johns Place.
If there’s an obvious downside to the apartment, it’s that it occupies only the rear portion of each floor, so each level is relatively small. The whole thing measures 883 square feet, according to the listing.
The rooms are at least grouped together logically, however, with kitchen, living room and powder room on the top level and bedrooms and baths on the lower. The apartment’s entrance is located on the bedroom floor, alas, according to the listing, although the floor plan seems to show a top-level entrance as well.
The interior finishes are white and modern — there are no original details left — with good-looking new oak floors throughout.
The open-plan living area has high ceilings and a pleasant view out the door and windows onto a private terrace. Also attractive is the view of the stairs, a u-shaped affair in wood that leads to the other levels and the roof deck.
The galley kitchen is minimalist in spirit, with white cabinets, white subway tile backsplash, engineered Calacatta stone counters and stainless-steel appliances.
The bedroom floor also has high ceilings, and one of the bedrooms sports bay windows and a wall of exposed brick, the photos show.
The two bathrooms on this level are identical, compact, adjacent, and both off the hall. Both have enclosed glass showers; there is no tub in the unit. It seems like a convenient setup for roommates or a family without young children.
A niche in the hall contains the washer/dryer, and there are three closets in total. There is central air and heating.
The building, originally a two-family brownstone with brick details, was painted for decades and now sports a new brownstone stucco facade. The new fourth floor is set back so it’s barely visible from the street.
The home is three blocks from the Nostrand Avenue 3 station and four blocks from the express Franklin Avenue 2, 3, 4 and 5 stop.
Douglas Elliman’s Alexander Maroni, Jack Chiu and Niels Theodule have the listing, which is asking $949,000, with monthly common charges of $369 and $200 tax. What do you think?
