Park Slope’s Bennett House has launched sales for condos in a converted 1909 Park Slope apartment building, and they are large and lavish, with prices to match.
Phasa Development transformed seven rentals into five condos in the Renaissance Revival building, which is named for its original architect, Thomas Bennett. Two of the four-bedroom, three-bath units at 582 2nd Street hit the market on Friday, starting at $2,395,000, as Curbed was the first to report. The developer plans to hold onto one of the units, meaning that two more will be listed in the future, according to Curbed.
The apartments feature wrought iron balconies, Vermont ash hardwood floors, Calacatta marble countertops, custom-made kitchen cabinets and multi-zoned central heat/air. The apartments have been reconfigured with new floor plans, so not much remains of the Edwardian look, but the finishes look luxurious. The choice of marble for the kitchen counters seems apt for an Edwardian apartment.
