The circus has (sort of) come to town in Bed-Stuy. This two-bedroom loft at 689 Myrtle Avenue, the Chocolate Factory condo, is owned by a juggler and an aerialist who has outfitted the 1,222-square-foot pad with some quirky touches. These include an assembly used for aerialist silks that now holds a fun egg chair, as well as retro and industrial touches. The home is asking $1,050,000.

The apartment is on the first floor, but the 17-foot ceilings allow the massive wall of windows to be high enough that no one on the street can see in. As the listing says, this makes it “perfect for a rehearsal space, photo studio or any creative pursuit imaginable.” And though the brightness is great, if movie night is in the cards, the space has custom 10 percent light-diffusing as well as complete black-out blinds.

The kitchen has a large granite peninsula and a dishwasher.

Also on the first floor is a bedroom and a newly renovated full bathroom with a washer/dryer.

Up the cool spiral staircase is the lofted bedroom. It has full ceiling heights and a walk-in closet.

Built in 1947 as the Cocoline Chocolate Factory, the building was converted to 45 condos in 2003. Amenities include a 5,000-square-foot green roof and garden, and a rooftop atrium gym. It’s in a great location right on the border of Bed Stuy and Clinton Hill.
