On the corner of Warren and Hicks St. in beautiful Cobble Hill sits an immaculate courtyard with lush greenery, pristine stone scaping, and bench seating peppered throughout the walkways. Reserved exclusively for residents of The Arches, a century-old former church and rectory now converted into luxury condo apartments, the serenity of this outdoor area is palpable. It serves as the perfect introduction to 401 Hicks Street B1B, a charming 2-bedroom (currently setup as a 3-bedroom), 2.5-bath, 1,700-square-foot duplex that embraces tranquility in the heart of one of Brooklyn's most bustling neighborhoods.

Step inside the home's private entrance, and you will immediately notice the expansive living/dining area. High ceilings, white oak flooring, and smart design features, including an open closet, built-in bookshelf, and custom under-stair home office, breathe function and style into this open space. The eat-in-kitchen, updated in 2021 with custom cabinetry, features a Sub-zero refrigerator with separate two-drawer crisper, 4-burner Wolf gas oven, Bosch dishwasher, and an island with a freezer, ice machine, and pet bowl niche. Don't have a four-legged friend? The niche works perfectly for single high-top seating. Entertain in style from your outdoor patio, which features built-in bench seating with storage, a privacy wall with built-in planters, electricity, water, and chalkboard walls. A generously sized walk-in pantry and chic powder room add to the convenience of the first floor.

Designer Oliver Freundlich gave the home new life in 2015 by mixing industrial elements with sleek wood accents, bridging the gap between the home's intrinsic historic charm and on-trend aesthetic preferences. The home's second level perfectly highlights the designer's approach, starting with the elegant rift-sawn white oak stairway with metal and oak railings. At the top of the stairs, a dreamy hallway with a chic art shelf leads you to the home's bedrooms and additional bathrooms. A massive front-facing primary features a gorgeous teak-paneled ceiling, a perfect dressing room, and an en-suite bathroom with a dual shower, deep custom-built teak vanity, and a double trough sink. A grand peaked window, an ode to the building's rich history, floods the space and hallways with natural light. Access the beautiful full bath with a clawfoot tub from the hallway and the additional bedroom and bonus room. Beat the heat with two-zone central air conditioning and enjoy access to nearby hot spots and transportation, including Court St., Atlantic Ave., Columbia Street Waterfront District, the Brooklyn Promenade, and the F/G/2/3/4/5/N/R/W and South Ferry. Zoned for PS 29. Reach out today to view this charming Cobble Hill abode.
