The bad news: you won’t find any chocolate here. The good news: You’ll get a brilliant two-bedroom loft lined with western-facing windows, only blocks from Ft. Greene Park, for just under $1 million. Located in the 1 Rockwell Place condos, which was once a chocolate factory and remains the only true converted factory loft space in all of Fort Greene, this apartment has plenty of character thanks to original wood floors, 11-foot ceilings, and exposed beams.
Enter the loft apartment to find a bright living room with tons of natural light from three oversized windows. An updated kitchen opens up to the space, boasting high-end appliances and butcher-block counters. Unfortunately, the awesomely retro dining set doesn’t come with the apartment, but who knows what can be arranged?
On one side of the loft is the master bedroom, which has a pillar that can serve as a hat rack and an en suite bathroom. On the other side, there’s a bedroom suite with a separate nursery and a loft bed and office. And there’s no need to worry about guests traipsing through the room to get to the bathroom. This en suite has two doors, one of which is open to the main living/entertaining space.
Residents of the elevator building enjoy gated parking, a live-in super, and laundry facilities on the floor with space to add a washer and dryer in-unit. For the ultimate cultural experience, head over one block to the BAM Cultural District, and for shopping and good eats, restaurant row is right at your feet.
