This conveniently laid out two-bedroom co-op in the Brooklyn Heights Historic District is not the least expensive two-bedroom we’ve ever come across, but it does offer a remarkable number of hard-to-find desirable features. The list includes a second bathroom, large terrace, walk-in closet, wood-burning fireplace, light on three sides and an elevator in the building — quite rare in a circa 1850 Green Revival brick townhouse.
It also has high ceilings and hardwood floors. The combined living and dining room has a nearly full wall of built-in bookshelves opposite the white-painted brick fireplace and four windows on two exposures.
A passthrough from the dining area is a nice touch, adding openness and light in the recently renovated kitchen. The kitchen has a white subway tile backsplash, gray counters, and wood cabinets.
The bedrooms are both good sized with large closets, including a walk-in closet in the master. The terrace is accessed through double doors in the master bedroom.
The bathrooms, one of which is en suite to the master bedroom, are not shown but the listing says they are also recently renovated. The shared bath off the hallway has a tub, and the en suite bathroom has a shower.
Two large closets in the hallway add more storage, and there’s a another small closet opposite a linen closet for the washer/dryer. The unit has air conditioning, and access to the building’s shared roof deck.
Apartment 2A appears to be situated on the second floor of 123 Pierrepont Street, which is adjacent to St. Ann’s school and whose backyard overlooks a Gothic Revival church. The apartment building also includes the matching brick townhouse next door at 125 Pierrepont Street. Both had their stoops removed in the 1940s.
The unit last sold in 2007 for $950,000. Listed by Bill Sheppard of Brown Harris Stevens and with a monthly maintenance of $1,504, it is on the market for $1.625 million. Worth it?
