This 2BR/1BA co-op is not one of those trendy church-to-condo jobs that pop up regularly across Brooklyn. It's actually a standard Brooklyn brownstone that has a Gothic revival facade added to the front of the building, which adds some square footage on the lower two floors at the expense of the standard brownstone stoop. Unit 2, which is the parlor floor of the building features a large Gothic arched transluscent window that sets a dramatic tone for all of the common interior spaces. The 2BR co-op unit is actually closer to a 1BR, with a reasonably sized laundry room with a washer/dryer that leads onto a private deck overlooking the building's back yard. Enhancing the size of the master bedroom and the living room are two huge mirrors placed into the wall and over the mantle of a decorative marble fireplace, respectively. The unit last sold in 2005 for $739,000 and is back on the market seven years later at the slightly increased price of $785,0000.
