Beautifully renovated one-bedroom loft home with southern exposure.
This high-floor corner apartment is a stunner. Court Street Lofts, aka the “Doehler Building” started its life in 1918 as a candy factory and was converted into a condominium in 2006. Pre-war character, industrial solidity and contemporary interior design combine to create an unparalleled home in this location and at this price point. With 11-foot ceilings, southeastern exposures and two walls of oversized windows, apartment 7A offers skies, light and a sweeping panorama of South Brooklyn.
As you enter, you will immediately notice the massive and well-appointed closets and storage, complete with built-ins and space-saving sliding doors. You’ll also notice the soaring high ceilings with recessed lighting, the 7”-wide custom beechwood floors, and the sleek no-baseboard wall finish. The open-plan kitchen has been completely changed from the original and now features a breakfast bar with tremendous food-prep space, stainless steel counters, a Miele paneled dishwasher, convection oven and microwave, Sub-Zero paneled refrigerator, Bertazzoni Professional Series 24” gas cooktop with four sealed aluminum burners, hardened glass backsplash, stainless steel range hood, and tremendous amounts of custom cabinet storage reaching up to the ceiling. The attention to detail in this unique renovation doesn’t stop there. In the bedroom, a floor-to-ceiling built-in provides ample storage, bookshelves and decorative display options.
Completely re-wired in 2013, the apartment has soft-touch switches to enable the perfect lighting balance, while UV-blocking solar shades do the same for natural sunlight. In the living/dining room the Minka Aire ceiling fan offer an alternative to air conditioning. The bathroom has been completely re-done with a custom vanity, oversized mirror, custom tile, Duravit fixtures and a standing shower with a ½” low-iron glass partition.
505 Court Street features a 24-hour attended lobby, live-in super, building laundry, landscaped residents' courtyard, and residents' gym (subject to NY State regulations for re-opening). The location is close to the F & G trains at either the Carroll or Smith Street Stations and is only a few blocks from the I278 and the Battery Tunnel. Nearby amenities include the shops, cafes and restaurants on and near Court & Smith Streets as well as Union Market, Whole Foods and Lowes. Aspects of life in Old New York such as guitar and piano shops, record stores, fresh mozzarella purveyors, art framers and bike shops are all within the immediate area.
