Check out this 5,000-square-foot live/work space at 246 Frost Street, a former 19th century Williamsburg firehouse. While the historic facade remains intact, the interior has pretty much been transformed into a lofty, two-floor apartment with plenty of exposed brick to go around. And it’s full of bonus space: a finished basement, an extra sleeping loft, a deck, parking garage, recording studio and fully-functioning dark room. For all that, it’ll cost a cool $15,000 a month.

The design of the living room was inspired by the firehouse, with the exposed brick walls, slate flooring and two working fireplaces. Four tall windows and a massive skylight keep everything really bright, while built-in storage was added to accommodate the clutter of any artist residents. We love the sleekness of the open staircase leading to the upper floor of the home.

The kitchen boasts some recent renovations, including custom-designed cabinets, granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. It opens up into the combined living/dining area on the main floor of the firehouse.

Here’s a look at some extra “hang out” space right around the corner from the kitchen. There’s a sleeping loft perched above. Not pictured is the master bedroom, as well as the second bedroom/office, located on the ground floor.

The first floor leads directly out onto a lovely deck, perfect for barbecuing. It also looks like a good spot for anyone with a green thumb.

What’s not to love about living in a firehouse that looks this charming? It’s located fairly deep into East Williamsburg, closest to the Graham Avenue L stop.
