Here’s a two-bedroom condo in Fort Greene’s Williamsburg Savings Bank Clock Tower that’s spacious and offers loads of custom storage. Located at 1 Hanson Place, it also boasts unobstructed views from the 11th floor.
Part of the charm of this apartment is also the building itself. The totemic Art Deco stunner is an individual landmark within the Brooklyn Academy of Music Historic District, and its first floor is an interior landmark as well.
Hardwood floors and beamed ceilings can be found throughout the apartment, and there’s a full wall of custom built-ins in the main living area, including a mahogany entertainment area, bookshelves and a “goatskin parchment accent panel” that conceals more storage and folds down into a dining table. Two large windows offer a generous view of the borough.
Open to the living area is the kitchen, which has a counter island with sink that could easily be put to use as a breakfast bar. Under the island is a dishwasher, and there is extra storage in the form of both cabinets and shelving.
The master bedroom is large, with a custom fabric paneled accent wall, two windows, a sizable closet and ensuite bath with marble, tile, a double vanity and large, glass enclosed stand-up shower. While the second bedroom is smaller, and has only one window, it does have the same size closet as the master. And if that wasn’t enough storage space, there’s another closet in the foyer.
No pictures of the second bathroom, unfortunately, but the floorplan shows that it has a bathtub. There’s also a washer and dryer in a closet hallway.
Building amenities include a full-time doorman, live-in super, three furnished public terraces, two bike storage rooms, a children’s play room, conference room, lounge, gym and game room.
The home is across the street from the busy Atlantic Avenue Barclays Center station. Halstead Property’s Harlan Simon and John Caraccioli have the listing, which is asking $1.35 million. Common charges are $1,025.19 a month, with a monthly assessment of $131.50. Abated taxes expire in 2024. What do you think?
