Review of 401 Hicks Street by Carter Horsley

This three-building complex at 401 Hicks Street and 101-117 Warren Street in the Cobble Hill section of Brooklyn was formerly the St. Peter’s Church, a rectory and a nursing academy and it was converted into 59 condominium apartments in 2005.

It is known as The Arches at Cobble Hill.

The conversion was done by Stanley Listokin of St. Peters LLC and Hicks & Warren LLC of which Lester Petracca is the majority member.

Scarano & Associates was the architect.

The Landmarks Preservation Commission unanimously approved the conversion which incorporated many original architectural features including stained glass panels and wood trusses.  A 3,000-square-foot duplex was made out of the church’s bell tower and has a 30-foot-high atrium.

Bottom Line

This very handsome conversion of a three-building religious complex into 59 residential condominiums in Cobble Hill is highlighted by a very lovely, terraced garden.

Description

The red-brick former nursing academy has a six-step-up stoop entrance between the high fences of the building’s lush landscaping.  The bottom floor windows are peaked and the second floor windows are arched.  All the windows are multi-paned.

Amenities

The development has a live-in superintendent, a courtyard, a garden, a package room and is pet friendly.

Apartments

Apartment 4AB is a two bedroom unit with an entry foyer that leads to the angled, large, living/dining room with a spiral staircase to a large terrace.

Apartment A3D is a two-bedroom duplex with an entry foyer that leads to an 11-foot-long dining area next to the 9-foot-long angled kitchen and the 15-foot-long living room with an angled stair to the upper level bedroom and office/nursery.

Apartment B6B is a two-bedroom duplex with an angled, high-ceiling, large living room with an open kitchen and spiral staircase to a very large terrace. 

Apartment BAF is a two-bedroom unit with a foyer that leads to a 19-foot-long living/dining room with an open, 9-foot-wide kitchen with an island.

Apartment B3B is a three-bedroom duplex with a foyer on the lower level that leads to a 19-foot-long living/dining room with an open, 10-foot-long kitchen and there is a bedroom and a 772-square-foot terrace on the upper level.
