When you hear about a Greenpoint apartment for sale, “loft” might not be what first pops into your head. But apartment 8 at 190 West Street, currently listed for $1.825 million through CORE, will make you a believer in Brooklyn loft living.
The 1,364-square-foot, one-bedroom apartment has all of the loft-like charms you’d hope for–steel support columns, nine-inch oak plank flooring, and exposed wood ceiling beams, duct work, and pipes. It also feels twice its size thanks to 16-foot ceilings, 40 feet of street-facing frontage, eight-foot-high windows, a large skylight, and an open layout that can easily accommodate a two-bedroom conversion.
The chef’s kitchen will definitely stop you in your tracks. It’s outfitted with stainless steel appliances, open shelving made of reclaimed beech wood, custom hand-made wood cabinetry, and stone flooring. The room’s current movable furniture will leave a great deal of room for creativity within the space.
Throughout the loft are big expanses of white walls, perfect for displaying large-scale artwork. There are three closets, one of which is a utility closet with a washer/dryer hookup. The modern bathroom is lined with crisp ceramic tiles, and also has a deep soaking tub and a wall-mounted porcelain sink. Amenities include a shared roof deck with full Manhattan views, a private deeded parking space, and basement storage. We should probably stop now–the old-school Tribeca lofts are getting jealous.
