Here’s a renovated one-bedroom condo in the beloved Cobble Hill Towers, the 19th century red-brick buildings with distinctive wrought iron appointments that once served as housing for the working poor and now are coveted by a distinctly more upscale breed of buyer. This one’s on the fifth floor at 134 Baltic, which like the other eight buildings in the complex went condo in 2010.
At 667 square feet, it’s a corner unit with an irregular shape, but not an impractical one, as long as angled spaces don’t bother you. There’s a single bedroom overlooking a courtyard, a single bath and a large-ish living room that overlooks Baltic Street, with an open kitchen.
There’s a lot of exposed brick here, and open-beamed ceilings throughout — all of it painted white. There’s track lighting and floors of white-washed oak, with matching closet doors.
The kitchen looks recently renovated, with gray cabinetry, a subway tile backsplash, birch countertops and a matching dining table. The bathroom’s not pictured.
The unit has a stacked washer and dryer in a closet; the walk-up building also offers a laundry room, for what that’s worth, along with bike and stroller storage.
The unit, which carries common charges and taxes of $1,030 is asking $675,000; Barbara Katsnelson and Heather McMaster of Corcoran have the listing. Like it?
