Windows and light abound in this large sprawling three bedroom apartment with three exposures and windows everywhere.Upon entering one notices the light streaming into the Open and Chic White windowed kitchen with new Carrara countertops and a butcher block island set off by beautiful island lighting. There's lots of prep space and upper and lower cabinets and The appliances are stainless.Three bedrooms of this size are rare in Fort Greene/Clinton Hill and This apartment is the combination of two one bedroom apartments, 4J and 4i, totaling to about 1200sf approximately. The living room is well proportioned measuring 22 feet in length which allows for lots of seating with a 90 inch couch and several chairs but also has room for a dining table too.In classic prewar fashion, the bedrooms are accessible down two separate two hallways off the living room. The primary and second adjacent bedroom are located in what was the other apartment next door and the third bedroom is on the opposite side allowing for privacy. All three bedrooms are generous sizes and measure over 15 feet in length. The master is the largest and measures just over 17 feet. Each has a set of closets and could easily fit a king sized bed!
