Some New Yorkers might be wishing they could escape to a cabin in the woods right about now, but awesome co-op gives off that feeling without having to leave the city. Located at 30 Willow Place in Brooklyn Heights, the two-bedroom duplex is asking $1,675,000. It’s full of rustic charm, including huge swaths of exposed brick walls, wooden window frames, and wood-paneled ceilings. The bohemian-meets-folksy design aesthetic seals the deal.

Upon entering on the upper level, there’s a full bathroom and views into the living room. This space has 11-foot ceilings and a lovely decorative fireplace. The windows throughout have black slate sills, which are “ready for indoor horticulture,” says the listing.

Off the living room is the open kitchen, which has enough room for a dining table. There’s a breakfast bar that could easily fit a couple of stools, cherry cabinets, green Brazilian granite counters, stainless steel appliances, and a separate pantry.

At the other end of the second floor is a pass-through dining area that is currently set up as a home office, as well as the smaller of the two bedrooms. It’s only 7′ X 14′ but it does have a closet, a street-facing window, and a charming brick fireplace.

The lower level is entirely devoted to the master suite. There are three large closets, a vented washer/dryer, and the larger of the two bathrooms, which has radiant floor heat.  This level opens up to a shared garden patio.

The four-story building was built in 1901 and has a total of 15 units. Basement storage is available for no additional fee, and there’s gated parking up from the garden patio that costs just $150/month. As the listing says, the building is “around the corner from the “ever-popular River Deli and Clover Hill Restaurants, and another short block to Brooklyn Bridge Park and the waterfront.” It’s also just a short walk to the 2/3/4/5/A/C/R trains at Borough Hall.
