It’s not too often that you find a condominium for sale that isn’t in a new-construction building, usually sleek but generic unless it has been custom-designed. This pre-war condo studio at 940 Fulton Street in Clinton Hill, surrounded by historic buildings and a growing collection of newly-minted ones, has added vintage elements like reclaimed wood shelves and wide plank floors, with the flexibility, super-low common charges and contemporary comforts of a new development. The ask is $469,000.
The second-floor walk-up is surrounded by the shops and restaurants on Fulton Avenue. Within, tall south-facing windows bring in plenty of sunlight and a full wall of exposed brick adds warmth. We like the chalkboard door–and its current “Water Tower” installation.
A big, inviting kitchen has quartz countertops, a farmhouse sink, and stainless steel appliances. Rustic wood open shelving is a tactile addition that keeps the look fresh and modern.
The apartment has two large closets and a washer dryer, and what looks to be an air-conditioning unit that won’t fall out your window. With a window that isn’t facing the street, you’re guaranteed some peace and quiet, too.
The clean, bright bathroom offers a deep soaking tub and a pedestal sink with pretty custom additions like subway tile, wainscoting, beadboard and a classic penny tile floor.
The central Brooklyn location is a quick trip to Manhattan or North Brooklyn on the C / A or G train lines just steps away, and many other great neighborhoods are a short walk in just about any direction.
