This Dazzling Top-Floor Gem in Brooklyn Comes with “Witches Stairs”
Maybe I’m biased by the many walk-up apartment buildings I’ve lived in over the years, or maybe it’s my irrational fear of elevators, but I truly love a walk-up apartment building. And this top-floor condo in Park Slope, Brooklyn, is well worth the climb to the fourth floor. Enter into the living room, where a glorious fireplace with built-in shelves looks like an extravagant multi-tiered mantel. An exposed brick accent wall brings a rustic-cool look into the space, while a branching chandelier dangles into the center of the room like a glass-and-gold sprig.
- Where: Park Slope, Brooklyn, New York
- Price: $1,450,000
- Bedrooms: 2
- Bathrooms: 2
The living area flows into the dining room, where the exposed brick continues on one wall and the opposite wall features a ton of built-in storage — discreet drawers and closets galore to stash away any unsightly clutter.
In the kitchen, you’ll find excellent appliances (think: a Fisher & Paykel fridge, Bosch dishwasher, Wolf induction range) alongside marble counters, recessed lighting, and sleek all-white cabinetry that makes the corridor kitchen feel luminous and modern.
The neatest part of the kitchen, though, may be what’s hiding behind the cabinets: Cleverly tucked away is a wooden set of witches stairs. Yes, it means trekking up another staircase, but this one not only looks like a contemporary art exhibit, but it also leads directly up to a hatch that opens onto a spacious rooftop deck with stunning skyline views.
The primary bedroom offers a built-in desk for those work-from-home hours, and lots of built-in storage.
One of the two bathrooms comes with a washer-dryer, a soaking tub, and Duravit fixtures.
