Rental of the Day: One-Bedroom With Double-Height Ceiling and Roof Deck in Williamsburg


This bright and airy one-bedroom — in the Jacksonia building at 139 Jackson Street in Williamsburg — doesn’t come cheap, but it’s got a lot of functional space in it, including a large mezzanine that could easily hold another bed or would make a great home-office space.

One obvious selling point here is the double-height ceiling in the living room, with windows from top to bottom. Less splashy, but handy, is an alcove between the kitchen and the bathroom that could be another spot for an office. The bedroom is decent sized and has a large window and a ton of closet space.

The mezzanine, up a flight of stairs from the living room, measures about 250 square feet, with a wall of built-in shelves. It leads out to a private terrace from which you can see the city skyline; the building also has a common roof deck.

There are the usual appointments that come with high-end condominiums: stainless steel appliances, nice fixtures, a “deep soaking tub,” a washer and dryer. It’s an attractive space, all told, with clean lines and a lot of light. The agents are Michael Breen and Ralph Modica of Douglas Elliman.

What’s your take on it, and the rent of $3,500 a month?
