An astounding, once in a lifetime property has become available~ Introducing 305 Saint Marks Avenue. Two freestanding, exceptional brick buildings: the first a 3 floor townhouse (2,770 s/f) with 3 legal apartments (40K+ annual income) full of lovely details such as original tin, moldings, decorative fireplaces, and skylights as well as a beautifully finished, fully heated studio space on the ground floor complete with bathroom and custom lighting which could serve as an outrageous home office, a child's fantasy play space, or a coveted 2 car garage. From there walk out into a huge private original cobblestone courtyard landscaped with mature trees and abundant flowering plants to the gorgeous 25 ft wide (1750 s/f) private carriage home in the back which has undergone a complete restoration and renovation by the innovative Brooklyn based firm Coburn Architecture. Creature comforts include radiant floor heating, central air conditioning, and a state of the art cook's kitchen with acid-stained concrete flooring. Everything is custom made and exquisite--the tri-fold doors, windows, lighting, metal work, and mill work are just a few of the innumerable features and incredible attention to detail. These 2 buildings were built in the 1870's and were the home of the Saint Marks bottling company in the 1930's. This property has been featured in FINE HOMEBUILDING magazine, INTERIOR DESIGN magazine, as well the ESSENTIAL HOME book.

Replete with Italianate and Greek Revival rowhouses, much of the neighborhood of Prospect Heights is actually considered a historic district. Many of the co-ops are situated within wide nineteenth century brownstones, divided up into apartments. You can also find larger apartment buildings that have more amenities like a live-in super and shared laundry. The neighborhood has recently been the recipient of one of the most magnificent buildings in Brooklyn, One Prospect Park, Richard Meier’s glass masterpiece. Large balconies, Zuma soaking tubs, microwave ranges in the kitchens, and wiring for motorized shades are few of many amenities that bring a new standard of luxury to Prospect Heights condominiums.
