Billed as the “antidote to winter every urbanite needs,” this sunny Park Slope one-bedroom may be lacking in space at 587 square feet, but there’s no denying its unusual charms.
The bulk of the loft is on the first level, with 13-foot pressed ceilings, exposed brick, hardwood floors, and a slightly raised “work platform” equipped with a built-in desk, bookcases, and a twin bed that pulls out from underneath. A flight of stairs leads up to the “mezzanine sleeping area,” which looks out over the rest of the apartment through a wall of glass-paneled doors. The kitchen is not mentioned, but images seem to suggest it exists, decked out in sleek wooden cabinets and what appears to be a dishwasher. Although it’s not pictured, the floorplan confirms there is definitely a bathroom.
One of ten condos in the historic former Carleton Club, the apartment is currently configured as an “open plan artist’s studio,” though the listing’s alternate floorplan shows how it could be converted back into a more standard one-bedroom with the strategic addition of a wall.
Listed at $675,000, with monthly fees totaling $800, the apartment comes with central air and access to a shared laundry room. Board approval is emphatically not required, and while cats are welcome, dogs are not allowed.
