A Cobble Hill two-bedroom triplex that's anything but basic

How much total do you plan to tip the building staff this year?

Its tall ceiling heights and interesting layout keep this Cobble Hill two-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath on Verandah Place from being ordinary. A maisonette—meaning it has its own entrance, among other things—located in a former schoolhouse building, it has three levels (the highest level being a loft) and windows stacked above each other, bringing in more light than is usual in an apartment on the ground floor. 

The kitchen's a mite compact, but it clearly benefited from a 2013 renovation. Per the listing on Brown Harris Stevens (which is representing the seller, who's asking  $1.9 million), it has a breakfast bar, a marble backsplash, name-brand appliances (including a Wolf stove with a griddle), and a double farmhouse sink.

The dining room's airy—again, that ceiling!—and the bedrooms, too. The piece de resistance: a semi-private parking spot—a treasure in a neighborhood known for tough street parking. 

The apartment's only been on the market for a few days, so we'll see if the price makes sense for this coveted neighborhood. (A few other two-bedrooms are asking less.) As always, we recommend doing your own due diligence, but for now, on looks and layout alone, consider us a little smitten.
