72 Poplar Street, #4B, Brooklyn, NY, New York 11201. New to Market! - STUNNING BOUTIQUE 4 BR HOME Rarely does the opportunity present itself to live in such perfect harmony of scale, elegance and serenity in a coveted location. Poplar Street, a gas-lit enclave of townhomes and greenery, is tranquil and private yet enviably close to all that has made Brooklyn such a marquee destination.
The Police Building is a stately brick former precinct house, built in 1912 by Beverly King and Harry Walker and modelled after a Florentine palazzo in the Italian Renaissance Revival style.
Converted in 2014 into 14 condominium apartments, this landmark building has been tastefully renovated to capture a bygone era in a modern setting. Soaring ceilings and wide casement windows are amongst the architectural features that set this conversion apart.
Apartment 4B opens upon a grand, nearly 25' entry gallery leading to a sun flooded and elegant loft-like living and dining area with high ceilings and surprising breadth of space. The drama of these rooms is warmed by a continuous row of oversized windows filled with charming townhouse and sky-filled views. This expansiveness, along with the large open plan Chef's kitchen and a huge private wrap-around terrace, makes this home an entertainer's delight.
In contrast, the winged private quarters are seductive retreats. The master bedroom suite delivers an immense dressing room/walk-in closet and a spa-like bath outfitted with Grohe hardware, radiant floor heating and Zuma deep-soaking tub. Private to the master bedroom is another terrace, one of calm seclusion. Three more bedrooms, completely separate from the master, two more marble baths and an additional powder room complete this gracious floor plan. The apartment is outfitted with zoned central heat and air and capacious LG washer and dryer.
This apartment is a real home. Just as beguiling is the location - at the crossroads of beautiful, world renowned Brooklyn Heights and Dumbo, arguably the most booming recent hotspot for relaxed, chic and global dining and design experiences. New and unique tenants include Soho House, Cecconis and 1 Hotel. Dumbo has also become a legitimate destination for cutting-edge art spaces and a dramatic new waterfront dining empire. Living at 72 Poplar Street provides a sophisticated lifestyle with so many facets - you can actually have it all.
Building amenities include virtual doorman, bicycle storage, on-site super, lounge with children's play area and fitness center. Pets are welcome.
