Classic Williamsburg loft in converted factory asks $2.5M

New, 6 comments

It's been on and off the market since 2011

Here's a tried-and-true loft that's now up for sale in one of Williamsburg's more popular condo conversions, the Mill Building at 85 North 3rd Street. (Agyness Deyn once called it home, don’tcha know.) The former factory boasts a prime neighborhood locale, between Wythe Avenue and Berry Street and a few blocks from the waterfront.

Though the building and location are nice, this apartment has had a tough time on the market. According to Streeteasy, it last sold in 2010 for $1.2 million. It was then listed in 2011 for $1.525 million by Corcoran and delisted in 2012. In 2015, Momo Acquisition Group gave it a shot with an ask of $2.495 million. It came off the market later that year. Now Brown Harris Stevens is up with the same ask of $2.495 million.

The apartment's wide-open living space is decked out with restored plank hardwood floors, exposed wooden beams and columns, oversized windows, and 13-foot ceilings. The living area is large enough to fit a living room, dining room and entertainment space. Right off it is an open kitchen, renovated with Sub-Zero appliances and a large pantry.

The master bedroom has its own walk-in closet and connects to a bathroom with a walk-in shower, double sinks, and a soaking tub. Legally, this is a one-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment with a home office, but two extra rooms—neither with windows—are currently being used as an office and second bedroom. There's also plenty of closet space with a separate utility and laundry room.

Building amenities include a full-time doorman, on-site parking, bike storage and additional rental storage. Of course, there's a roof deck with those Manhattan skyline views. The only question left is if the 1,972-square-foot pad will sell this time around.
