Though its compact footprint might challenge a small family of committed minimalists, this two-bedroom, one-bathroom co-op on the penultimate floor of a Fort Greene townhouse checks a lot of the boxes.
There are high ceilings, wood floors, large windows and original moldings. The living room has a dining area and an original marble mantel flanked by modern white built-in bookcases and closed storage.
The kitchen, visible through a passageway, has plenty of cabinetry, lovely swirling stone countertops, wood floors, a dishwasher and a wine fridge. A beautifully landscaped private rooftop terrace is accessed via a “wide and user-friendly” spiral staircase, according to the listing, from Kaptan Unugur of Sothebys International Realty.
The bedrooms are of good size and the unit has five closets, including a walk-in closet and one with washer/dryer. The bathroom is modern, with a double sink vanity and marble subway tiles in the tub and shower combo.
With four stories and four walk-through units, the circa-1850s brick building in the historic district features typical Italian brownstone trim, a high front porch, and original ironwork. The self-managed co-op is “well-maintained,” according to the listing; maintenance for this unit is $714 per month.
The unit is asking for $1.25 million. Worth it?
