Here’s a Williamsburg condo that splits the difference between an old-school walkup and the new luxury condos that have overrun the neighborhood. It’s on the third floor of a four-unit tenement building at 238 South 3rd Street, at the corner of Havemeyer Street, which was converted to condos 11 years ago.
In the old-school division, we’ve got a floor-through measuring more than 60 feet long with high ceilings and original wood floors. It’s been given a loft-like treatment with an open plan living space, dark stained floors, whitewashed exposed brick, and some architectural salvage in the form of a mantel and a column.
A sleek modern kitchen inhabits a rear corner of the living area, with stainless steel counters, an acrylic floor and backsplash and a reclaimed-wood peninsula.
An adjacent bump-out hides a marble-tiled bath with a glass-walled shower. The bathroom enclosure is an interesting piece of work, described in the listing as “a sculptural presence in the apartment created by truly original glass, wood and tile work.”
The front room has been divided into two bedrooms, or you could call it 1.5. It’s unclear if the smaller of the two rooms is big enough to accommodate a twin bed. If you wanted one large bedroom instead it’d be easy work to knock the wall down.
There’s a washer and dryer, according to the listing; presumably it’s housed in the closet next to the bathroom. You’re four blocks from the J/Z trains at Marcy, and there’s many a bar and restaurant within close reach.
Monthlies are fairly low, with common charges of $436 and taxes at $132; the ask is $1.1 million. Deborah Rieders and Sarah Shuken of Corcoran have the listing. Interested?
