A charming loft in a Dumbo building with deep ties to Brooklyn’s history is on the market for $3.25 million.

The co-op has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, a large living area, and space for an office. It has plenty of sleek details, including exposed brick and beams, doric columns, hardwood floors and views of the East River, the Manhattan skyline, and the Brooklyn Bridge.

The building sits within the Fulton Ferry Historic District, which the Landmarks Preservation Commission described as “the place where Brooklyn began,” as the area played a vital role in evacuating Washington’s army to New York, and became a thriving commercial center in the 19th century.

This Italianate-style building at 8 Old Fulton Street was built by E. B. Jackson & Company between 1860 and 1861 as an office for the Brooklyn City Railroad Company.

Located mere steps from Brooklyn Bridge Park, and a 10-minute walk to the F train at York street, the five-story building has bike storage and accepts pets on a case-by-case basis.

Maintenance charges for the building mount to $2,012/month, with an additional $580/month payment until June 2023 for central A/C installation. Lucy Struever of Compass has the listing.
