Built in the 1880s as St. Paul’s School, the distinctive red brick Romanesque Revival building at 205 Warren Street in Cobble Hill boasts extra large windows and double-height ceilings.
A loft co-op on the third floor has a clean, contemporary vibe, thanks to hardwood floors and soaring vertical space. Its tall windows were designed to let in lots of natural light.
The home has a gracious square entrance foyer with space for a table. The sizable living and dining area with double height ceiling, big windows on two exposures, and Manhattan views is the focal point of the apartment.
A niche next to the stairs accommodates an extra-tall built-in bookcase.
There is a newly refurbished kitchen on one side of the apartment and a recently renovated bath on the other; above them, a sizable loft big enough to accommodate a full bedroom suite. There are closets on both levels and an in-unit washer/dryer.
The common roof deck offers Manhattan skyline views. There is stroller and bicycle parking. Converted in 1982, the three-story building has 27 units.
It is conveniently located half a block from beloved Cobble Hill Park and is close to shopping on Court Street and restaurants and nightlife on Smith Street.
Walk in the other direction for tennis courts in Van Vorhees Park and the ever-expanding Brooklyn Bridge Park, with volleyball, soccer fields, basketball courts, a floating pool in summer, and picnic opportunities.
It’s close to the F and G trains at Bergen Street.
See the home in person at an open house Sunday, April 8 from noon to 2 p.m.
