Description

CHOCOLATE (LOFT) LOVERS DREAM!

Welcome to 689 Myrtle Avenue #1A, a stunning 1,266 square foot luxury loft, located in The Chocolate Factory - a spectacular condo conversion (2003), originally built as a chocolate factory in 1947.

As you step into this space, you immediately begin to grasp the extraordinary experience of loft living with its soaring 17-foot ceilings and massive wall of east facing windows, which shine down early morning sunlight daily into the home. Plant lovers will have happy plants in this light-filled, palatial space. As a ground floor apartment, the windowsills are above head level, starting at 7-foot high, providing a level of privacy rare in urban NYC - so you can feel free to live your best life in this secluded and creatively imagined private haven!

This turnkey home has been meticulously renovated in preparation for sale from top to bottom, leaving no stone unturned.

There are newly painted walls, ceilings, closets, kitchen, bath and all of the hardwood floors throughout the home have been stripped, sealed and restored with pride to a pristine finish. The concrete pillars have been painted, but still preserve their authentic structural significance and the newly installed EXTRA thick granite countertops in the kitchen are a stunning anchor to the space.

The layout of this home lends itself to entertaining - imagine cocktail parties, movie, yoga and sushi nights filled with laughter!

Additional Amenities include:
- A laundry closet including full size LG stackable washer and dryer
- Central A/C and heat
- 3 extra-large walk-in closets that feel like rooms themselves
