Description

The red doors of the Fairfax House provide an iconic visual in Bay Ridge. Upon entering this pristine, six-story prewar co-op building, you will want to call this place home. A corner residence on one of the uppermost floors, life in Residence #5G places you above the treetops and "on top of the world," with unobstructed views of the Verrazzano Bridge and the New York City Skyline.

In a world of tiny, shoe-box apartments, the elegant simplicity and spacious comfort of prewar spaces shines with life-enhancing details like high ceilings, original parquet flooring, extra-large rooms, and abundant closet space. Enter the residence in a grand foyer designed to serve almost any function, from a formal dining area to an extended living area, a home office to a sitting room, or a gallery to much more.


The roomy cook's kitchen offers ample wood cabinets, granite counter-tops, stainless-steel appliances (including a microwave), and tile flooring. Adjacent to the kitchen, enjoy home-cooked meals in the cozy dining nook. While life in NYC may be busy, find your peace and tranquility in the king-sized bedroom, which has two vast closets. As a corner unit, the double-exposure (southern and western) of this serene room provides warm, rich sunlight, and awe-inspiring, panoramic views. The beautifully updated, full bathroom carries through feelings of relaxation and calm with a clean, streamlined feeling and a bathtub/shower.

The well-established building is impeccably kept by the attentive, live-in Super. In the basement, find laundry facilities, bicycle racks, and rented storage-units. The neighborly feeling of the building means that, living in this apartment, you will have the feeling of living in a small town within the amazing landscape of opportunity in a big city.

In the heart of Bay Ridge, just off of 3rd Avenue, 243 78th Street is on the doorstep of great restaurants and shopping options. Public transportation is also readily available, as the 77th Street R-Train Station is one block away, and the B4 and B37 buses are also close. The 69th Street Pier is a couple of blocks West, providing access to the bike path and NYC Ferry network, which shortens many commutes.
