Today’s condo is at 1 Hanson Place, aka the Williamsburgh Savings Bank Building, aka the clock tower that looms over the Brooklyn skyline. The building is home to some seriously luxe, big-ticket units — this isn’t one of them, but it’s still quite a nice one-bedroom, on the 14th floor.
There’s a nice view from up there, to be spied through the two good-sized windows in the good-sized living room. The ceilings are high, the floors are a nice dark walnut. The kitchen is sleek and attractive, with Viking appliances, a Lavastone counter and lacquered cabinets.
The listing mentions “prewar details” — what those might be is anyone’s guess. There’s a half-bath in addition to a full one off the master bedroom; the half-bath has a washer and dryer. All told it’s 824 square feet.
The building doesn’t lack for amenities: There are three common terraces, a children’s playroom, a gym, bike and stroller storage, a live-in resident manager and a 24-hour doorman. For all that you pay common charges of $782.87 a month; taxes are $649.34 a year.
There’s also a “special assessment” of $169.27. (We presume that’s a monthly fee for a year, but the listing doesn’t say.)
You know the location: Right by BAM, Barclays Center, and practically every subway line in the city.
The brokers are Tariq George and Ronell Kirkley of Halstead. Note: There’s an open house Sunday from 1:30 to 3 p.m. if you want a closer look.
The asking price is $899,500. Does it seem like a good deal to you?
