Four months ago, we featured an airy and cute loft that listed in the landmarked 8 Old Fulton Street building, asking $3.25 million. Now, an equally charming unit at that Brooklyn Heights building has come on the market, asking $2.6 million.

Part of the Fulton Ferry Historic District (or “the place where Brooklyn began,” as the Landmarks Preservation Commission says in its report), the Italianate-style building was built between 1860 and 1861 as an office for the Brooklyn City Railroad Company.

Several of the apartment’s details allude to the building’s industrial past, including original wood beams, exposed brick, high ceilings, filigreed columns, and nine-foot windows. It offers stunning views of the Brooklyn Bridge, the East River, and Lower Manhattan.

It has two bathrooms, a large living area, an additional space downstairs that could be used as office space, and comes with an in-unit washer/dryer.

The building allows pets on a case by case basis and has additional storage space. Maintenance charges come in at $1,095/month. Lucy Struever of Compass has the listing.
