135 Garfield Place, #3F, Brooklyn, NY, New York 11215. Impeccable, beautifully curated and worthy of an Architectural Digest feature! Starting with a veritable blank canvas, the owners had the apartment taken down to the studs to create an open layout, while providing a rustic chic aesthetic that skillfully uses a continuity of materials and color that lend a calm and sense of space. White shaker cabinets and subway tile backsplash stretch from quartz counter tops to nine-foot ceilings in the gourmet kitchen, accompanied by reclaimed wood open shelving and beam to complete a bright and airy modern farmhouse feel. Other kitchen features include a refrigerator and dishwasher that were artfully concealed by matching panels, a five-burner vented stove, and an island with seating, storage and microwave. The bathroom is clean, light and luxurious with a herringbone Carrara marble floor, a large walk-in shower with a gridded-glass panel, floor-to-ceiling tile, a vessel sink set atop a wooden and iron pipe vanity frame, and linen closet. Original brick was exposed in both the living room and bedroom. Regionally sourced, character-grade, 4-1/2 inch-wide solid walnut create a rich blanket of flooring. The triple-front bay windows, with a fourth window in the bedroom, cast south-facing light that flood the apartment, while dimmable recessed and accent lighting allow for lovely evening ambiance. All new electric, plumbing and windows, along with soundproofing, insulation and a split system for heating and cooling, were installed to complete this carefully crafted and constructed, top-to-bottom renovation. The furnished common roof deck has sweeping skyline views ranging from the Statue of Liberty to the World Trade Center to the Chrysler Building. Shared laundry is available in the basement along with additional bike storage. This pet-friendly, no-smoking, eight-unit self-managed brownstone co-op building has no underlying mortgage and recently renovated its common areas with new paint, carpeting and lighting throughout, along with stripped steel apartment doors and original wood banisters and entryways. The incredibly low maintenance of only $443 is 50% tax deductible. Located on a tree-lined Center Slope block just west of Fifth Avenue -- the restaurant row of the neighborhood -- the building is also mere blocks from Prospect Park, shopping, trains, and everything that makes life in Park Slope perfectly splendid.
