This two-bedroom in a 2007 condo building is one of those studies in the moderate evolution of Brooklyn apartments in the last decade or so. Located at 276 13th Street, the fairly generic seven-story structure is composed of two volumes, one set back with an entrance on 13th street and 12 units above, another occupying the street corner, with commercial space on the ground level and three units above. Despite the gray panel clad facade and awning reminiscent of the 1970s, the interior is not cheaply built.
The 15-unit building opened at the end of 2007 and the lobby looks to have some design put into it, with a minimalist bench, stone floors and a wall that looks clad in reclaimed wood. This apartment sold in March 2008, and sold again in 2013, with the interiors looking more or less the same as the previous listing. It’s got stainless steel appliances, open kitchen shelving, bamboo floors and a minimalist open plan kitchen and living/ dining room. Nearly wall-to-wall street-facing windows in the living room may be adequate to bring natural light into the kitchen, and the current owner has updated it with a bank of wall-to-wall shelves below the sills and a hanging cabinet.
The two bedrooms each have large storage units along the walls and bathrooms to themselves, one in-suite, in a style that matches the kitchen and lobby, a combination of what looks like stone floors and minimalist wood shelving, and pedestal sinks. Add to that a terrace through the master bedroom facing the garden and it’s a relatively tidy place for relatively new but not quite luxury construction.
It’s asking $985,000, with taxes of $206 and common charges of $542. There’s also a pantry, a washer/ dryer, a common recreation room, garden access with a barbecue, a roof deck, bike storage and a deeded 70-by-53-inch storage unit. Kerry Sullivan of Corcoran is showing it at an open house on Thursday, July 15th from 2 to 3 pm. Is it a good price for what you get?
