This one-bedroom apartment offers broad views from its 11th floor perch along with a marble-adorned kitchen designed for its food columnist owner. It’s set in the 1920s Neo-Gothic tower of 1 Plaza Street West, located across from Grand Army Plaza and within the Park Slope Historic District.
Designed by Manhattan-based architects Sugarman & Berger, the 16-story brick and terra-cotta building was completed in 1928 and dubbed Park Tower. Early ads boasted that the building was fireproof and soundproof and commuters would find it was just a 12-minute ride to Wall Street.
This unit has had a renovation since Brownstoner featured it back in 2013, but there are still some period details to be found including parquet floors, beamed ceilings, picture rails and at least one arched doorway. Entered off a small foyer, it has a living room and kitchen at one end and a single bedroom at the other.
There’s some conveniently placed curved shelves at the entry and built-ins were added elsewhere in the unit, including a window seat in the renovated galley kitchen. The kitchen has been outfitted with sleek white cabinetry and Carrera marble counters and backsplash. The listing also mentions a coffee grotto which is presumably the well-lit niche next to the refrigerator so the coffee is easily at hand in the morning.
The bedroom boasts two exposures with tree-top views. It’s got a closet and there are two more in the unit. The windowed bathroom is adjacent to the bedroom and has a mix of period features and some sympathetic additions.
Building amenities include a live-in super, doorman, laundry room and bike storage. Monthly maintenance for this unit is $1,474.
It last sold in 2014 for $695,000. Now, post-renovation, it’s listed for $850,000 with Joan Goldberg of Brown Harris Stevens. Worth the ask?
