A lot of Brooklynites can say they’ve had great moments around a pool table, but how many can say they actually live where those tables were once made? The home of the Irving Kaye Company from 1960 through 1981, 363 Prospect Place once churned out billiard tables with pool pro-like precision.
Now, the new-to-market Billiard Factory Lofts offers luxury living in one of Brooklyn’s most desirable neighborhoods.
Designed by S3 Architects, a firm that specializes in historic building conversions, the Billiard Factory Lofts has studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom residences to rent, each with its unique floor plan but all offering exposed brick, high ceilings, and oak hardwood flooring.
Residents will appreciate the building’s many shared and private terraces or yards, as well as a landscaped private interior courtyard, exterior courtyard and spacious roof deck. Meanwhile, anyone looking for competitive amenities will be drawn to the building’s theater room, lounge, fitness center and yoga studio.
The Billiard Factory Lofts is located just off Washington Avenue, within strolling distance of the Brooklyn Museum, Grand Army Plaza, Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), Prospect Park, Vanderbilt Avenue, and the Brooklyn Botanical Garden. The 2, 3, 4, 5, B and Q subway lines stop nearby, and it’s also close to a host of bus lines and major thoroughfares.
Nearby Prospect Park is a convenient place to burn off calories from some of the best restaurants in Brooklyn. Locals are so spoiled for choice, there are two excellent ice creameries: Blue Marble and Ample Hills. Cocktail fans can visit The Bearded Lady and Washington Commons. When it comes to food, there’s Chuko Ramen for fans of Japanese noodle soups and the wholesome American cuisine of The Vanderbilt.
