This Red Hook condo has a lot of space, triple exposures, some rustic charm and a private roof deck with views of the harbor and Manhattan skyline. It’s one of two apartments in a former industrial building at 156 Conover Street, with a commercial space on the ground floor that looks to be vacant.
The unit has a loft-like vibe, with painted brick walls and exposed-beam ceilings. It’s got a couple sets of built-in shelves in the living spaces, one with some nice drawers in dark wood, alongside some matching French doors. There’s a wood-burning stove and decorative fireplace in the living room, and what look to be original wood floors.
The number of bedrooms is open to interpretation but could be two, three or four, depending on how you want to use the space. The unit is currently set up as a railroad, but that could be altered by shrinking a closet.
The apartment is currently set up with a large living space and at least one bedroom on each floor, the floor plan shows. The lower bedroom, which is slightly larger, has a walk-in closet and an adjoining office space or nursery (called a third bedroom in the listing, though it has no separate entrance).
The upper one’s got an en suite bath and decorative fireplace, and adjoins the spacious kitchen.
Some windows offer views of the skyline and the Statue of Liberty; so, as noted, does the roof deck above. You’ll also see your share of of industrial-zone grit — there are a pair of bus parking lots across the street, for example.
The subway’s a fair distance off, this being Red Hook, but there’s a private parking spot. Common charges and taxes come to $604 a month.
Listed by Compass brokers Matt Holbein and Katherine Camp, the unit is asking $1.795 million. What do you think of the place?
