Here’s an above-average one-bedroom with six big windows and dual exposures on the 20th floor, which makes for some pretty impressive views that incorporate the harbor and the skyline. It’s in the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce building at 75 Livingston Street, an Art Deco number built in 1927.
In a Building of the Day writeup Brownstoner columnist Suzanne Spellen called the building “a marvelous 32-story combination of Art Deco massing, with ziggurats and six set backs, some uniquely on a diagonal to the street, combined with Gothic tracery and white terra-cotta ornament all over the parapets and other parts of the facade.”
The apartment offers 1,065 square feet, and it’s bright and attractive, with a large and inviting living space with a pair of window seats, the better for taking advantage of the vista.
There’s an open kitchen that’s quite large and nicely renovated with granite countertops, an island, a Jenn-Air refrigerator, a high-grade DCS range and generous cabinet space.
The bedroom is raised, and technically not a legal bedroom, as it lacks a window. Normally that’d be quite the buzzkill, but given the brightness of the space and the translucent screen and sliding doors that separate it from the living space it ought to work just fine.
There’s an en suite half bath, a recently renovated full bath, a washer and dryer and a pair of large closets sited near the entrance foyer.
The building offers a full-time doorman, a live-in super, a deeded storage room and bike storage. Maintenance totals a steep-ish $1,760 a month.
Listed by Michael Coleman and Robert Donohoe of Corcoran, the unit is asking $995,000. Worth a closer look?
