Attention investors and first time condo buyers! 174 Vanderbilt Avenue, apt 408 is a sprawling, turnkey Modernist Condo one bedroom & terrace For those who crave modern living in Fort Greene's historic brownstone Brooklyn, here is your opportunity! Built 10 years ago, 174 Vanderbilt Avenue was built as one the first modern condominiums in Fort Greene offering top of the line amenities including private terraces, concierge services, cold storage for deliveries, a fitness center, roof deck, deeded... parking, additional storage lockers, and a landscaped courtyard with a reflecting pool. Upon entering the apartment, the modernist condo's glamorous & elegant proportions seem evocative of a prewar-era apartment with its oversized entry way foyer and living room, soaring almost ten foot, ceiling heights, huge ten foot by six foot window banks, beautiful teak wide plank floors, towering seven foot interior doors, and walk-in closets. Plus, there's outdoor space! There's a sizable private terrace off the bedroom. And there's parking in the building! For an additional $70,000, a parking spot can be yours! It has generous proportions and totals about 900sf that includes a total interior square footage of 750sf, and about 150sf outside, which is about the size of most two bedroom condos out there. From the front door to the living room windows, the apartment measures over 30 feet in length and lends to the overall feeling of spaciousness. The previously mentioned window banks are also over sized and run about 10 feet in length and their height is six feet in both the living room and bedroom. The apartment is a corner unit and views are open west and north over the trees in the beautifully landscaped courtyard. The open kitchen features stainless Bosch appliances, plus a generously proportioned eight foot Ceasarstone island, prep space and lots of cabinet space. The master bedroom has an oversized walk in closet and wall to wall floor to ceiling windows. The terrace is directly off of the bedroom through a glass door and there's plenty of room for a table and chairs. The bathroom has marble floors and a super deep soaking tub. And don't forget the washer/dryer in a closet off of the entry way. The apartment also has central air and heat. The real estate taxes are about $200 annually due to the tax abatement through 2025. Monthlies total about $656. For architecture buffs, Clermont Greene Condominium is an Ayn Rand/Howard Roark meets Phillip Johnson/Glass House kind of building. The buildings designers' took a page from modernist architects in its combination of a steel structure with oversized glass windows allowing for maximum light. 174 Vanderbilt is one of the two buildings associated with the formally named condominium, Clermont Greene. The two buildings together comprise two small six story buildings and a total of 75 units. The second building's address is 181 Clermont which has its own entry way and concierge. The two buildings are separated by a manicured garden with a reflecting pool. The building is located moments from our celebrated Calvert Vaux & Frederick Olmstead's 19th Century Fort Greene Park, BAM, great shops, and tons of restaurants like Roman's, Metta, Walter Foods, and so much more. Plus, Wegman's has just recently opened in the Navy Yard! There's a Ferry Stop where one can commute to Manhattan, other areas of Brooklyn, or Queens. It's easy to commute to Manhattan or get around to anywhere in the area due to the proximity of subways and buses.
