This two-bedroom duplex condo has two terraces and a lot of glass — most notably the dramatic double-height curved wall of windows in the living room that dominates the space. Said curved wall is the namesake for the 10-unit building, dubbed Curve, at 117 Kingsland Avenue, between Herbert and Beadel streets, on the east side of Williamsburg near the BQE.
It makes for a pretty striking living room, with no shortage of light, and a floating staircase that follows the bend up to the second floor.
Up there is a master bedroom with a second bank of rounded windows, a single full bath and a second bedroom with an oversized window and a glass door leading to a small terrace.
In between there’s a mezzanine, accessed by a pull-down ladder, which is quite spacious and flanked by large windows — but it has a ceiling height of only 5 feet 2 inches. It’s an offbeat space that could serve a number of functions — storage, kids’ playroom or guest bedroom for a visitor on the shorter side — but in at least some of those scenarios, stooping is likely going to be required.
The second terrace is off the kitchen, which is smallish but pleasant and has stone countertops and a large window in addition to the sliding glass doors. There’s a closeted washer and dryer in the living room.
The building offers “rooftop access.” The L train at Graham is a bit of a hike, but a bus on the corner connects to the G, J and Z trains, according to the listing, from Corcoran broker Nicole Elyse Paikoff. There’s an open house this Sunday from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m.
The unit — which has quite low monthly charges, totaling $338 — is asking $999,000. That’s just over double what it sold for in 2010: $448,188.
