This two-bedroom condo sits on the 19th floor of the former Williamsburgh Savings Bank at 1 Hanson Place, whose clock tower has long dominated the now-morphing Brooklyn skyline. It’s got some killer views as a result, with a nice pair of arched windows in the living room that take in New York Harbor and the lower Manhattan skyline.
That same living room has a ceiling that rises to double height up by those same windows, which add some drama to the living space. It’s got an open-plan setup, with a nice, new-ish kitchen that’s got lava stone counters and a Viking range and fridge.
The bedrooms flank the living room, one on either side. The master has an en suite bath and an additional windowless space that could serve as a small office or a walk-in closet. (Note that if you go the former route the master is left closet-less.)
There’s a washer and dryer stacked in a closet. The building has a beaut of a lobby, a 24-hour doorman and concierge service, a resident manager, a kids’ playroom, bike storage, a lounge, a gym, a game room, and several common terraces. It also offers direct access to the many trains at the Atlantic Avenue/Barclays Center subway hub, as well as the A/C and G nearby.
There’s a whole lot happening around here at the moment, from cultural programming to development. Whether the construction is a plus or a con is in the eye of the condo shopper.
Note that the sellers, who bought the place a year ago for $1.65 million, have an interest in leasing the unit back after closing, paying $6,500 a month. So that option is open for potential investors.
Listed by Chris Benfante of Compass, the unit is priced at $1.85 million. Common charges are $1,381 a month; taxes are abated until 2024. Think it’ll fetch close to the ask?
