The cozy rooftop studio is one of the best perks of this sprawling apartment

A sprawling loft atop a former bottling plant in Boerum Hill is now on the market for $1.675 million. The apartment opens up into the living/dining area with a wall of windows in the front that flood the space with light. This space has 12-foot-tall ceilings, eight windows in total, and wooden floors.

The apartment features an industrial-chic kitchen with stainless steel appliances and finishes interspersed with light wooden cabinetry and shelving. The adjacent dining area can seat up to 16 people, according to the broker on the property. The bedroom is separated from the rest of the loft by a partial height wall, which also doubles up as additional storage and shelves for the bedroom.

A flight of stairs past the bedroom leads to the 600 square foot private terrace that this loft enjoys. There you can see views of the Statue of Liberty, the Williamsburg Bank Building and the Verrazano Bridge, according to the brokers on the property.

Also nestled on the roof is a spacious studio or a rooftop cottage of sorts. This cozy space has a metal roof that rises up to 13 feet in some parts, and a clerestory on either side of studio, in addition to normal-sized windows. For marketing purposes, the brokers have categorized this as the second bedroom in the apartment; it also presently features the washer/dryer for the apartment.

The apartment is part of a former bottling factory on Atlantic Avenue that was converted into a cooperative building in 1981. Today it’s home to 58 residences, and apartment 5E is only one of two units in the building that have a private terrace.
