Looking for a working artist’s studio plus family-friendly living space? You’ll find it in this two-winged loft in a converted schoolhouse in South Williamsburg. The four-bedroom apartment takes up an entire floor, plus an additional half floor one flight up. There is also 400 square feet of storage in the basement, a shared garden with koi pond, and waiting-list gated parking.

Think the price of $1,850,000 will fly?
