Here’s a studio apartment that’s small but in excellent condition, with obvious decorating potential. Located at 117 Milton Street, it’s on the top floor of a brick Italianate in the Greenpoint Historic District.
For the type of person looking for a primely located apartment and doesn’t need a lot of space, this would be a good fit.
The living space has enough room for a couch or a bed, but not both comfortably, and the inset lighting adds a bit of roominess. Three north-facing windows on such a low-lying block bring in a good deal of natural light, and the tall closets are spacious, with a skylight over one.
There’s an eat-in island in the kitchen, which is separate from the main living space. Overhead cabinets offer plenty of storage, and there’s a mini-fridge under the counter. The bathroom has a stand-up glass corner shower as well as a second skylight.
Standing on one of the neighborhood’s most architecturally diverse blocks, the building stands out as notably picturesque, with a wonderfully landscaped and oft-Instagrammed front garden (some of it on the building’s very own Instagram account).
The building was constructed circa 1874 by, like a number of homes on the block, important Greenpoint builder Thomas C. Smith, who also was operator of Greenpoint’s Union Porcelain Company.
Keller Williams’ Alexandra Newman and James Barry have the listing, which is asking $2,300 a month, which includes heat and hot water. Would you do it for the gram?
