This one-bedroom apartment on one of the Cobble Hill Historic District’s quaint blocks is a classic example of brownstone Brooklyn. Located at 219 Warren Street, the parlor-floor residence retains its lofty 1870s proportions, which includes 12-foot ceilings and large windows, while the building’s facade is one of dozens making up an intact turn-of-the-century streetscape.
Indoors, the mood is decidedly more up-to-date, with a recent renovation bringing the house well into the 21st century while retaining such period details as ornate moldings and original window shutters (the latter of which fold back into the walls).
The open-plan kitchen is large and bright, with abundant cabinet space and a large custom island for prepping and serving meals. Quartz countertops complement the herringbone Carrara marble backsplash and stainless steel appliances, including Bertazzoni and Bosch.
The master bedroom is a well proportioned space with a renovated en-suite bath. A windowed walk-in closet could serve as a child’s room or small office, while a second walk-in closet, nook and dedicated space in the cellar provide storage as well.
The washer and dryer are also located in the cellar and a split central air system keeps this apartment cool during those long summer heat waves. There is a landscaped yard for milder weather, accessible via a small deck.
The home is close to the F, G, 2, 3, 4, 5, N and R trains; Citi Bike is easily accessible. Cobble Hill Park is a few blocks away, and the Smith Street corridor is within walking distance along with Trader Joe’s, Barneys, Union Market, Fish Tales and Staubitz Market.
Ellen Gottlieb and James Stubbs at Brooklyn Bridge Realty have the listing, which is asking $979,000.
