A rare true loft conversion, this alcove studio is located a block from the waterfront in North Williamsburg — the heart of one of Brooklyn’s most popular neighborhoods — in the Factory Lofts at 66 North 1st Street. The condo has exposed brick, walnut floors, and a beautifully appointed kitchen with stainless steel appliances.
The open kitchen has lots of counter space, with a Caesarstone countertop and breakfast bar overlooking the living area.
In the front of the apartment is a windowed sleeping alcove measuring 12 by 8 feet. The bathroom features white subway tile and a custom walnut vanity. A walk-in closet houses a washer/dryer.
The 21-unit building offers a furnished roof deck with views of Manhattan (a nice perk when July 4 rolls around and Macy’s stages fireworks on the East River).
Of course, the surrounding neighborhood is one of the chief attractions of this apartment. There are abundant green spaces nearby, including two waterfront parks, as well as a plethora of restaurants and bars, including country music honky tonk Skinny Dennis and Radegast Hall and Biergarten. And the location’s popularity has allowed for an influx of new attractions that include Whole Foods, Equinox, Soul Cycle, Flywheel, Apple Store, WeWorks, Brooklyn Spectacles, Liquiteria, Brooklyn Body Burn, Mociun, Maje, Sweet Chick, and more.
Commuters will note that the NYC Ferry to Manhattan and other points in the five boroughs and Brooklyn is a few blocks away at the North 5th Street Pier.
Listed by Daniel Fried and Jessica Peters of Douglas Elliman, the apartment is asking $750,000. Common charges are $280 and property tax is $25.
