Four Modern and Move-in Ready Condos to See This Weekend, Starting at $1.15 Million


    Once again our Open House Picks this weekend feature apartments, though you might not immediately guess that by glancing at the prices. They’re all over $1 million, an improbable scenario in much of the known universe but, of course, nothing unusual in these parts. They’re all condos, all recently renovated and move-in ready. They’re found in Williamsburg, Boerum Hill and Crown Heights.

    First up, a loft-like unit in the Smith Gray, a 19th century building on Broadway in Williamsburg, converted to condos in 2002. It’s quite a nice one, spread out over three levels, with a fetching double-height living room, with a floating iron staircase and a wall of windows. It’s got two proper bedrooms, including a master with a tin ceiling and a wall of windows overlooking the living room that’s trimmed out in walnut. There’s a third “sleeping area” (i.e. not a legal bedroom) on the basement-level bottom floor and a “yoga room” that could also serve as an office. The buildings’s got a super, laundry, a roof deck and a common courtyard.

    The next one — a two-bedroom in The Smith, a 50-unit building constructed in 2006 on Smith Street at Atlantic in Boerum Hill — has got a more modern vibe. This one’s pretty straightforward: two decent-sized bedrooms, one with double exposures and each with a walk-in closet; a pair of bathrooms; and a kitchen that opens to the living/dining area. The kitchen is the most distinctive space, with brushed-aluminum cabinetry and white quartz countertops; the master bath has a walk-in rain shower and a double sink. Knock a wall down and open up the living space and you’d have a nice one-bedroom, albeit one that’s asking well over a million. There’s an in-unit washer and dryer, and the building’s got a doorman.

    The next one, on North 10th Street in Williamsburg, has a fair amount in common with the last one, with a modern feel, an open kitchen and two bedrooms that flank the living room and sport walk-in closets. It’s likewise a bit unexciting, but it’s pleasant enough, with walnut floors and a kitchen island topped in white stone. The building, which went up in 2007, has lots of amenities, including a 24-hour concierge, a pair of roof decks, a sculpture garden, a gym, a playroom and a billiard lounge.

    The last one’s in a prewar building — the Art Deco Traymore, on Eastern Parkway near the Brooklyn Museum — though you wouldn’t necessarily guess it from looking at the unit, which at some point was gut renovated. It’s got a more traditional vibe than the last two, with dark-stained floors and white Shaker cabinetry in the kitchen, but is similar in its layout, with two bedrooms and an open kitchen and living/dining space. Only one bathroom here; there’s also a washer and dryer and a fair number of closets. The building’s got a doorman, a live-in super, a fitness center and a common courtyard.
