Property of the Week – Beautiful Prewar Condo in Crown Heights, NY

658 Park Place, Apt 8, Brooklyn, NY


Situated on the fourth floor of an elegant row house in a lively part of Crown Heights, this condo is top-tier in more ways than one, and it’s achieved with a few key, thoughtful choices rather than with opulence.

Its defining feature is the long floor plan that lends itself to an outstanding sense of flow. Upon entering and stepping into the living area, one is struck by the rough-hewn charm of an exposed brick wall: it’s captivating, but the whitewashed treatment also blends it into the rest of the interior and gives it a fresh spaciousness.

The bay windows offer dazzling views of Manhattan, of course.

The open kitchen, updated with modern, neutral tones, includes a breakfast bar that ensures that the public areas of this home stay cozy and connected while setting the dining area somewhat apart.

As we move further back in this unit, the spaces become more personal: past the kitchen, a long, hardwood floor hallway leads to the main bathroom, conveniently located for both residents and guests.

Past the bathroom, the master and second bedrooms enjoy discreet privacy and quiet at the far end of the hallway.

Note the use of baseboard heating and split-system air conditioning throughout this unit: these accentuate the feeling of linear flow throughout the home while saving valuable space. The availability of storage space in the condo building also helps to additionally maximize enjoyment of this efficiently laid-out home. Experiencing a space like this is something like a journey – in this case, nicely accentuated by choices that utilize color and line.
