Rare Brooklyn Heights 2BR Condo With Low Monthlies!

A sunny southern exposure shines happiness into every room in this home. The living room, with new hardwood floors and smartly designed built-ins, has the ideal layout for conversion back and forth between an expansive living room and having a separate space to utilize as a home office or bedroom. It is currently setup as a bedroom with extra large pocket door for separation. This versatile layout is highly sought after, and extremely rare to find, let-alone in a condo in Brooklyn Heights.

The fully renovated and spacious kitchen features a professional Monogram gas range, microwave, Bosch dishwasher, Marvel wine fridge, full-sized refrigerator, deep Kraus sink, under cabinet lighting, AND A SEPARATE PANTRY! Down the hall next to oversized closets you'll find the IN-UNIT WASHER/DRYER (vented), an absolute necessity in today's market.

The bedroom also faces south delivering bright, but quiet, mornings on a tree-lined street with GAS LAMPS -- one of only a couple streets in all of New York City that still have this feature -- and comes with plenty of closet space. All closets in the bedroom and the apartment come with built-in Elfa shelving systems so you can move right in.

The unit comes wired with tons of smart upgrades for the modern homeowner. Central air and heat is controlled by EcoBee SmartThermostat which can be monitored from your smartphone. Recessed lighting, motion sensing entry light and closet lights, and Lutron dimmers are installed throughout. Even the hardwood floors were cleverly installed with a Silent Sound underlay.

Built in 1880, and converted to condo in the 1980s, 55 Poplar Street has all the modern conveniences you'd want -- elevator, washer/dryer in unit, and central air -- with nothing you don't want in a building, keeping monthlies low. The live-in superintendent and staff maintain the building full time. The backyard contains a private, award-winning common garden with 2 large grills and picnic tables, ideal for summer BBQs. There is a gated parking lot (separately deeded) as well as bike and storage rooms for rent (wait list). Pets allowed.

Brooklyn Heights has become arguably the premiere neighborhood in all of Brooklyn. With it's easy access to Brooklyn Bridge Park, multiple subway lines, restaurants lining Henry St and Montague, attractions of Dumbo, schools, and proximity to Manhattan, it is no wonder that the long term fundamentals of this neighborhood are so strong.
