Welcome back to The Six-Digit Club, in which we take a look at a newish-to-market listing priced under $1 million, because nice things sometimes come in small packages. Send nominations to the tipline.
This one-bedroom apartment comes from one of the "fruit streets" of Brooklyn Heights; specifically, the prewar cooperative at 59 Pineapple Street. According to the listing, the pad combines "the best of luxury and functionality." It has to, since there's a limited amount of space to work with (and the layout is, admittedly, a bit odd—you have to pass through the bathroom to get from the living area to the bedroom).
An elevated, open kitchen is set off the combined living and dining area. It's been finished with custom cabinetry, marble counters, stainless steel appliances and a dedicated hot water dispenser. A wall of exposed brick serves as a focal point for this main living space.
The bathroom's been equipped with some more upscale finishes, like an extra-large shower stall with floor to ceiling marble walls and a showerhead regulated by a thermostatic valve. There's also a soaking tub with wall-mounted Grohe faucets, plus custom built-ins for extra storage space. A wall of the bedroom, too, is lined with closet space.
The co-op doesn't offer many perks, but it is topped with a common roof deck offering views of the waterfront, Brooklyn Bridge, and the lower Manhattan skyline. Residents are also a short walk from more great views at the Brooklyn Heights Promenade, and close to the transit hub at Borough Hall. Maintenance for this apartment is $747/month.
