Set back on a lovely tree-lined street, this first floor two bedroom, one bath duplex condo offers the coveted combination of flexible living and lush private outdoor space. Enter into the apartment from your own private entrance, set back from the street and with plenty of room for stroller and bike storage, into an open living and dining room. Southern light streams into the expansive living room, with recessed lighting and hardwood floors throughout. The apartment has both central air and heat, you can control to maximize comfort. The open kitchen is freshly renovated with Caesarstone counters and backsplash, white shaker-style cabinets, and stainless steel appliances, with room for a kitchen table or island addition.

Wake up each morning looking out onto your serene garden from the ample sized bedrooms in the back of the apartment, offering privacy and northern light. Downstairs, the recreation room can be used a myriad of ways: a guest bedroom, media room, or any additional living space you may need. From the rec room, head out onto the lower covered patio, and up one flight to the landscaped garden: the perfect escape from city life! Enjoy living in the bustling South Slope, just off of 5th Avenue and two blocks from the restaurants and shops of 7th Avenue, such as Union Market, Fonda, Talde, le French Tart and more.
