You have every reason to look up at this Williamsburg apartment, renting for $4,500 a month in the condo building known as the Smith Gray. The blue cast iron facade of the building is striking, and this loft manages to also embody some of that industrial charm. The 13-foot ceiling is lined with raw plank wood, offset by iron beams and a chic ceiling fan. Exposed brick lines many of the walls, with wood flooring that mirrors the ceiling. Such a material-rich apartment deserves good interior design, which the owners provided with a nice selection of modern furniture.
This one-bedroom apartment spans 934 square feet, but the focal point is its open and lofty living and dining room.
Arches in the exposed brick show the artistry that went into the original building design, constructed back in 1884.
A breakfast bar separates the kitchen from the living space. Inside the remodeled kitchen, there are granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances.
A door to nowhere–surrounded by exposed brick, of course–offers an extra nook to get creative or add storage space.
The bedroom, too, gets a wood-lined ceiling and floors, as well as two large windows. This historic building went residential in 2002, and now boasts plenty of condo perks. A renter here will still get to enjoy a laundry room, basement bike storage, a courtyard and furnished roof deck with sprawling views of the city. Located just south of the entrance to the Williamsburg Bridge, the J/M/Z line is a four-block walk from the building.
