Description
With a footprint of almost 1200 square feet and yards of windows facing Manhattan, this quintessential loft with 13' ceilings and industrial accents truly epitomizes New York living. The expansive hallway furnished with a magnificent solid oak pew offers a gallery for your artwork, access to a huge walk in closet, a stylishly appointed bathroom and functional washer dryer closet. Behind the gallery wall and, unlike many of the lofts in this building, there is an actual bedroom and it is gigantic! Enjoy it as is with an incredible wall of floor to ceiling Elfa shelving, or easily separate the space into two bedrooms. The living area is open plan with designated spaces for cooking, dining, working and lounging. The kitchen has ample closet space and a large island with a granite countertop and seating for at least 4 people. Adjacent to this is an office nook and then a cute balcony, perfect for a handy vegetable garden. The dining area is oversized with enough space for a large table and then finally, the corner lounge area is bathed in light from 3 aspects during the day and offers twinkling Manhattan views at night. The building has forced heat and air, yet this unit is the only one to have upgraded to a Mitubishi mini-split system which is efficient and whisper quiet. This upgrade freed up space for a 6'x3'x3' in-unit storage space tucked away up high. The Chocolate Factory was built in 1947 and converted to condos in 2003 introducing Brooklyn’s first green roof—a unique 5000 sq. ft. tranquil garden space with panoramic views of Manhattan and Brooklyn plus a rooftop atrium gym, giving you everything you need right at home. The building's large capacity elevator makes for effortless moving in, visiting the roof deck or storing your bike in the bike room. There's 24/7 video security and high-speed Verizon Fios internet included in the building's common charges. Wifi is also available to all residents on the roof if you prefer to work outside. The building just completed a facade renovation which will last for years to come. Right on the border of Bed Stuy and Clinton Hill, the bar and restaurant options abound. Pratt campus and the shops and cafes on Myrtle Avenue are a short stroll away as is Herbert Von King Park and the Kosciuszko pool. Also conveniently located in the vicinity is Fort Greene Park, Wegmans and the Brooklyn Navy Yard. The G train is 2 blocks away. Bike lanes and CitiBike stations are also all at your door. You came to New York to live in a loft! Come and get it!
