Located on the top floor of a former factory, this one-bedroom apartment offers up a few nods to its industrial heritage along with a private roof deck and a home office. It sits in Clinton Hill, just across from the Pratt Institute at 372 Dekalb Avenue.
While it’s now known as Clinton Mews, the building was constructed as a shoe and boot factory for Julius Grossman, Inc. Plans were being made in 1910 for the construction of a factory on the site, and newspaper accounts and historic maps show that the company was in production by at least 1915. A certificate of occupancy from 1934 indicates the existing building on site was altered that year and still operating as a shoe factory. An ad that same year pitched the company as “born and bred in Brooklyn.”
There’s no shoe-based theme on the interior of this unit but there are some brick arch remnants from the former factory. The exposed brick wall with arches separates the foyer from the living room beyond. Adjacent to the foyer is a nook set up as a home office with built-in shelving and desks.
There’s no window in the galley kitchen but there is a passthrough to the hallway to bring in a bit more light. There are also white cabinets, stainless steel appliances and a walk-in pantry that holds the laundry.
There are more exposed brick walls in the bedroom which also boasts three closets.
The private roof deck, which has room for outdoor seating and dining, isn’t accessed through the apartment, there’s a staircase just outside the unit.
Amenities in the building include a live-in super, a doorman and concierge services, bike storage and a shared, landscaped courtyard. There’s also gated, onsite parking although the listing doesn’t mention if there are extra fees or a waitlist involved. Maintenance for this unit is $1,023.53 a month.
The unit last sold in 2016 for $720,000. Isil Yildiz of Compass has the listing and it’s priced at $795,000. What do you think?
