South-Facing 1 Bedroom Duplex w/Private Terrace and Wood-Burning Fireplace

Pin-drop quiet and awash in sunlight, this stunning top-floor one bedroom one bath home is located on one of the loveliest streets in historic Brooklyn Heights. Situated on the third floor (2 flights plus the stoop) of what was formerly the P.C. Cornell mansion, the lower level of the duplex features a spacious south-facing living room with a dining nook, a brick wood-burning fireplace, two oversized windows plus French doors leading out to a spectacular covered terrace overlooking the gardens. The ceiling on lower level of the duplex ranges from 8'-1 to 15'-2 with two magnificent skylights at the apex.

The renovated kitchen features white shaker-style cabinetry, new stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. The large, art deco-influenced bathroom features a classic pedestal sink, separate stall shower and chic high-gloss black subway tile. A louvered door within the bathroom leads to a private, windowed water closet.

A white spiral staircase leads to the upper level of the home which consists of an oversized mezzanine bedroom that's open to the living room below and includes a built-in desk/home office and an extra-large closet.

Additional features of the home include central air conditioning on both the upper and lower levels, beautiful oak hardwood floors, white painted brick walls and an approx. 115 cubic foot storage area in the basement (8'-2 x 2' x 7').

Built in the 1830's as a 36 ft. wide mansion for P.C. Cornell and noted for its magnificent center staircase with stained-glass skylight, 108 Pierrepont Street is now a beautifully maintained 10-unit cooperative in the historic section of Brooklyn Heights.

This self-managed, non-elevator building with a part-time Super is pet-friendly, allows 80% financing and permits gifting and parental co-purchasing on a case-by-case basis. Subletting and pieds-a-terre are not permitted. Laundry and additional storage are located in the basement. The building has allowed the installation of washer/dryers in individual units subject to Board Approval. The flip tax is paid by the buyer in this cooperative (1 % of the first $300k, 1/2 % of any amount above that).
