Welcome to loft living in Brooklyn! This apartment has soaring ceilings at almost 12 ft high and large windows to flood the apartment with southern sunlight throughout the day. There are refinished wood floors throughout. The owner has thoughtfully renovated with a keen eye for detail. The oversized living and dining area provide ample room for a large dining table and floor to ceiling bookcases. To make use of the high ceilings, there is a lofted mezzanine with a bed for guests and a home office with a custom cedar built-in desk underneath. The bar has a wine refrigerator, LED lighting, and reclaimed pinewood that the carpenter discovered while visiting North Carolina. This space is perfect for entertaining!
The kitchen has a rustic farmhouse feel with reclaimed sunken pine cabinets and a deep porcelain sink. There are stainless steel appliances throughout including a double oven. The countertops and back splash are a sleek gray quartz. There is tons of storage with both cabinets and open shelving.
The bedroom is spacious enough for a king sized bed and nightstands. There is plenty of light from the arched windows as well as storage in two different closets. Currently a 1 bedroom, there is room to add a 2nd bedroom or office/den if desired in this wonderful loft apartment.
The bath has amazing counter space, hand painted Moroccan tiles mixed with white subway tiles, as well as marble floor tiles. The glass-enclosed shower features a rain head fixture as well as a decorative niche for storage. The old cedar doors of the bedroom and the bathroom were salvaged from a farmhouse in the Berkshires and were restored and varnished.
