Situated in the Turner Towers, the art deco co-op building at 135 Eastern Parkway, this two-bedroom, two-bath unit offers high-ceilings, an elegant pre-war feel and a fair amount of space — around 1,300 square feet.
The large eat-in kitchen needs redoing, which could be considered a negative — or an opportunity to create one in accordance with your own vision. The listing, from Tracey McLean at Corcoran, says the bathrooms need work as well, though we quite like the old-school black-and-white-tile scheme in the one pictured.
The master bedroom has an en-suite bath and is generous in size. It’s got a big south-facing window, which means it overlooks the splendid vista of the Brooklyn Museum and the Botanical Garden across the street, as do the living room and the second bedroom.
The view from the kitchen is decidedly less inspiring, but you’ve got three exposures at least.
The living room’s got a wall of built-in shelving, herringbone floors and a good amount of square footage.
The building has a 24-hour doorman, a sweet marble lobby, a gym, a playroom and basement storage “upon availability.” As for laundry, the layout shows a washer and dryer (stacked?) in the kitchen, though not enclosed. Not a great look, and you may or may not want to keep them there, but it’s an option at least.
Monthly charges come to $1,287.
In addition to being able to spy the museum and the botanical garden from your windows, you’ve of course got quick access to them, as well as the 2/3 train outside the door.
