No matter how big or small, we could all use a work-from-home nook these days, and this lovely little studio in Prospect Heights has a perfect one. It also has a cool mix of industrial and old-world architectural details, including tin ceilings, exposed brick, and carved wooden window and door frames, along with creative, modern updates throughout. Located at 675 Vanderbilt Avenue, the co-op is asking $449,000.

Despite its small footprint, this apartment feels a lot larger thanks to high ceilings, large windows, and the fact that the kitchen and living/dining room are two distinct spaces. The kitchen has been completely modernized with stainless steel appliances and a large island that does double duty as a dining table. To match the room’s vintage charm, floor-to-ceiling wood cabinets with a wainscotting front and a tin-stamped backsplash were added. Next to the brick hearth, the built-in desk and shelving unit is perfect for working from home.

The living/dining room is large enough to accommodate separate sitting and sleeping areas. Even the bathroom is super stylish, pairing the brick wall with penny tile flooring, subway tile walls, a porcelain vessel sink, and a large stall rain shower. Throughout the apartment, you’ll find Restoration Hardware lighting fixtures all on dimmers and Bluetooth speakers in the bedroom and bathroom. When it comes to storage, the apartment has two closets–one just off the entrance and one in the living room.

The building is a few blocks from Prospect Park, one block from the B and Q trains, and two blocks from the 2 and 3 subway at Grand Army Plaza. It’s adjacent to both Prospect Heights and Park Slope and right near all the restaurants along Vanderbilt Avenue. The co-op offers free laundry in the basement, a shared outdoor space, and free bike storage. At $486, the maintenance is low, and pets are allowed.
