Last month, I featured our project at 397 First Street in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Now, I’d like to draw your attention to an East River Partners property in close proximity that truly epitomizes the best of Brooklyn’s Brownstone living.
Our property at 371 Sixth Avenue was acquired in April of 2012. The building structure itself was in good shape, but the interior condition was severely outdated. Because of this, we gut renovated the entire building, leading to a maximized return on investments.
Previously, the property was family-owned before being marketed with a sole-proprietor broker to a limited group of buyers. We completed the renovation in 2013, and all properties were sold by February of 2014.
We designed the condos in a way that appeals to Brooklyn families, as well as singles and empty nesters. The two-bedroom, two-bathroom units (with a flexible third bedroom alcove) feature 9’6 ceilings, walnut floors, in-unit washers and dryers, and temperature controls for each individual room.
We utilized the cellar and first floor to create a duplex that added additional value to the property. The duplex alone is an impressive 2,069-square-foot unit. We also provided the top floor unit with a private roof deck, a desired amenity that really personalizes the space.
Despite all the new renovations, we made sure to respect the building’s historic character. The mix of old and new complements each other to create a unique, tranquil environment that will make you feel immediately at-home.
One of the most unique property features is the location itself. I can’t say enough good things about the Park Slope neighborhood, but this unit’s location is truly unique. The rear has a clear view of trees and morning sun because the rear view is unobstructed for 300 feet — a rare find in the city.
Because of Park Slope’s great reputation and atmosphere, it is one of Brooklyn’s most desired neighborhoods. This is one reason we developed a few properties in the area.
This particular property is located along a brownstone boulevard within walking distance of many great shops and restaurants.
Additionally, there are many well-rated schools in the area, including Park Slope Elementary School, P.S. 39 Henry Bristow and Beansprouts Nursery School.
Even if you don’t live near Park Slope, I would recommend taking a day trip to explore this fantastic neighborhood. You might just fall in love with it, too.
