This luxury 1 bed condo in the heart of Brooklyn features an open floorplan that maximizes living space and capitalizes on an expansive skyline view of Fort Greene and beyond. Facing East, the flow of this home welcomes you in from the front door like a familiar friend inviting you to sit down and relax. The gourmet kitchen stands at the ready with granite countertops, Tabu Lolo Pacific wood cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, including dishwasher, and garbage disposal. The kitchen's efficient design provides ample space for meal preparation without encroaching upon your living space. Similarly, the unit's washer and dryer lie ensconced in a closet facing the fridge. The Living Room dominates the space yet remains open enough to be oriented either towards a flat screen tv, or a more conversational seating arrangment featuring the skyline as a background. Whether working from home or impatiently awaiting the ability to properly host guests again, this spatial openness is suitable for dinner, cocktails, or simply gathering to watch special events. The spa-inspired bathroom features Thassos marble wall tile with natural slate floors, Sycamore vanities and Zuma deep soaking tub. Commode located adjacent to the property's entrance, providing privacy and separation from living and sleeping areas. Separated from the Living Space by frosted sliding doors, at once modern, zen and industrial, the sleeping area comfortably accommodates a queen sized bed and storage, flanked by a closet which is supplemented by a large walk-in closet in the living room. Many of the high rises in the corridor were not present when this building went live in 2010. Residents of the Forte benefit from the proximity of the Market at the foot of 250 Ashland, and the Whole Foods at 300 Ashland, in a boutique building a fraction the size of both developments. Easy access to the Barclay's Center, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, the Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Art (MoCADA), Fort Greene Park, Atlantic Terminal, Atlantic Terminal Mall, Target, Best Buy, and PC Richards, not to mention all of the gems found on either side of Flatbush heading from Atlantic Ave to Eastern Parkway leaves you perfectly situated to take advantage of the best the borough has to offer. The Forte is Pet Friendly, has a full time doorman, a gym, and a furnished roof deck featuring amazing views that are at once private and enviable. Showings will be by appointment only in keeping with Covid showing guidelines. Additionally the home is tenant occupied thru September, so advanced notice is required and appreciated. We look forward to your visit. Matterport 3D virtual tour available upon request. Youtube link coming soon. Featured Views are from the roof. Unit is on 6th floor.
