Situated in the heart of Prospect Heights at 535 Dean Street, Unit 311 is a stunning two-bedroom, two-bathroom duplex loft boasting impressive proportions and a well-designed split of public and private quarters, thoughtfully spread across a spacious 2,140 square feet. The sheer size of this floorplate is so impressive that other units on the floor have effortlessly converted the upstairs floor into three bedrooms, a testament to the expansive space available.
As you enter the home, you'll be greeted by a lofted foyer with a large landing that offers ample storage space for everyday city needs, strollers, and bicycles. From here, you can head down to the spacious living and dining areas or up to the bedrooms. The living room floor is nearly 23 feet wide and over 35 feet long, offering proportions larger than some of the biggest brownstones in the borough and providing plenty of room for entertaining and working. The large dining room just below the stairwell is perfect for hosting dinner parties, while the marvelous, newly upgraded open kitchen with full-size stainless-steel appliances, including a wine fridge, features Caesarstone countertops and backsplash—a man-made material that is durable, scratch and stain resistant, and heat resistant up to 300 degrees—and a breakfast bar with storage, making it a chef's dream come true. To ensure an organized and clutter-free kitchen, a custom cleaning closet was built for convenient storage of all cleaning supplies, as well as a custom-designed pantry that includes a specifically allocated area for the microwave, maximizing functionality and space utilization.
Just off the kitchen, the dining area has enough space to accommodate a large table for formal occasions, while the bright living area with six windows offers ample seating and extra room to relax and unwind. With such a large living area, you can easily create different zones for different activities, such as a cozy reading nook or a designated workspace. For instance, the living area can be used for hosting guests, family time, or movie nights. A newly refreshed full bathroom completes the lower level of the home.
Ascend the stairs to discover two spacious and equally sized bedrooms, each featuring its own walk-in closet and ample natural light. Located just outside the bedrooms is a charming bonus space, presently utilized as an office but with endless possibilities to serve a variety of purposes. The upper level also showcases a stunning bathroom complete with both a jacuzzi tub and shower, as well as plenty of storage space to keep everything organized. For added convenience, a linen closet featuring a Bosch washer and dryer is located nearby, along with an efficient central heating and air conditioning system. This spectacular home additionally features custom Hunter Douglass blinds with automatic downstairs operation via remote or app, modular, drawer-rich closets designed by The Container Store, dimmer-controlled lights that set the perfect ambiance, and a Nest system that enhances safety and energy efficiency. The stairs with added risers can be modified to float, adding to this home's unique luxury.
