Perched atop the 15th floor of the prewar Griffin co-op at 101 Lafayette Avenue, in Fort Greene, is this lovely studio apartment. Although it’s modest in size, prewar finishes, large casement windows, and a well-thought-out layout (not to mention the attractive mix of rustic and modern decor) offer a sense of light and spaciousness. It has just been listed for sale at an ask of $525,000.

The windows face south and overlook the brownstone blocks for which the neighborhood is famous. The main living area, decked out with hardwood floors and moldings, is large enough to fit both a sofa and queen-sized bed. Extra closet space includes a large customized walk-in closet.

A breakfast bar separates the living area from the kitchen, which has its own large casement window. There’s plenty of cabinet and counter space, plus extra room to fit a dining room table.

The apartment comes from the Griffin, originally built as a hotel in 1931. Now that it’s a co-op it has amenities like a 24-hour doorman, live-in super, laundry room and private storage for rent. It’s also located right around the corner from the Barclays Center and the Atlantic Terminal subway hub.
