Living out at 156 Conover Street in Red Hook may sure seem like a schlep what with it being a bit of a walk away both from the nearest subway at Smith and 9th Streets and the ferry. But one look at this dreamy oasis should change your mind immediately.
Located on the top two floors of an industrial building built in the 1890s, this triplex apartment in many ways perfectly blends old-world, rustic charm with modern finishes. The condo is just one of three in the entire building, and comes fitted with some stellar features like beamed ceilings, built-in bookshelves, and a wood-burning stove.
The three-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment opens up into the living room which comes with 10-foot-tall ceilings, a decorative fireplace, and the above-mentioned wooden bookshelves.
The spacious master bedroom is located on the floor above that, and that too comes with a decorative fireplace and an ensuite windowed bathroom. There are windows galore in this light-filled apartment with great views of the East River and the Statue of Liberty—but you’ll have to go outside to enjoy the best of the views this pad has to offer.
The condo comes with a private rooftop, which also offers great views of the Lower Manhattan skyline. An additional perk here is the private parking space. And for all of that you’ll have to shell out $1.795 million, and it sure does seem like a solid investment.
