It’s not often that a three-bedroom apartment comes up in this historically significant complex, and this fourth-floor unit has potential. It’s in the Cobble Hill Towers, the 1870s red-brick buildings developed by philanthropist Alfred Tredway White as housing for the working poor.
Originally known as the Tower Buildings, the complex of six-story walk-ups, which includes this one at 138 Baltic Street, went condo in 2010. It’s known for its exterior hallways and staircases, intended to increase fresh air and decrease illness when it was constructed. Consisting only of a few rooms, each unit had running water, a closet and a stove for cooking and heating.
This unit has a bit more space to spread out. The open plan living, dining and kitchen areas face the street at the front of the apartment. There’s a bedroom near the front entrance, off a wallpapered hallway with two closets, and the other two are at the rear of the apartment. It could use a style refresh, but in addition to being roomy, it has wood floors throughout and a few exposed-brick walls. The living room has an angled niche used as an office space.
The galley kitchen has slab front white cabinets and stainless steel appliances, including a dishwasher.
The largest of the three bedrooms has one wall of exposed brick, a closet and a windowed en suite half bath. Instead of a shower or tub, it contains the in-unit laundry. Across the hall is the full bath, with white fixtures, white subway tile on the walls and classic black and white mosaic floor tile.
The building has bike storage and a laundry room, and the complex includes two courtyard gardens for residents. This unit has $860 in common charges and $728 in taxes a month.
The apartment last sold for $627,000 in 2013. Now on the market for $1.17 million, it’s listed with Imma Giocoli of Tyler Vincent Real Estate Inc. Worth the ask?
