Property Description


Be awed by Prospect Park and Brooklyn treetops from your very own terrace (19 x 6.5 ft). Your July 4th cocktail party guests will be blown away by panoramic skyline views stretching from Manhattan's East Side all the way out to Coney Island - brilliant FIREWORKS for hours.

Poetic sunrises and sunsets from your balcony garden are far more relaxing than whatever's on TV. And then there's the mesmerizing sight of the rising full moon.

Inside your bright and airy window-lined 868 sq ft apartment, you'll still see the big sky while unwinding in the spacious L shaped living/dining room. Neighbors have converted the alcove into a cozy, second bedroom/office. The galley kitchen has quartz countertops, stainless backsplash, pass-through window, professional grade gas stove, Bosch dishwasher and new, huge Samsung double door counter depth refrigerator with built-in water dispenser and icemaker .

The 22ft long bedroom is epic. It fits a king-size bed plus furniture AND a home office. The bathroom has upscale Italian glass tiles, an oversize medicine cabinet and a classic pedestal sink.

Storage? We got you. There's a large 6+ ft rectangular pantry (could also be an office) and an 8+ ft double-door closet with an outlet, and a brand new modern shelving system. PLUS a large coat closet and linen closet.

HVAC units have external thermostats. To enhance air flow, there are brand new designer ceiling fans (both with lights and remote controls) in the living AND dining rooms. The heating and cooling system is well maintained and effective. Just pay for electricity and Internet - the apartment is already wired for both FIOS and cable.

Maintenance includes heat, a/c, property taxes, gas, water AND a full service staff, available 24-7-365. The doormen, porters and live-in super are friendly and amazing. All it takes is one email if you need help with anything.

Laundry? The room is immaculate, large, card-operated and has several wheeled carts . You'll never have to wait for a machine.

Caton Towers is one of those Ocean Parkway buildings. Neighbors are friendly and helpful and the building is well-maintained. It is situated on an unusual and excellent intersection of Kensington, Windsor Terrace, South Prospect Park and Ditmas Park. Close to the F/G, Q, local and express buses. The Riis and Ft. Tilden beach buses are a few blocks away.

Parking (wait list) is underground. Walk to restaurants and bars on Church Avenue, Cortelyou Road and more. Sight horses a few minutes away at the stables. Cats welcome, dogs eventually (wait list).

This is a special apartment. You can't not love it.
