This one-bedroom apartment, at 132 St. Marks Place in Park Slope, does a lot with just 665 square feet. The unit comes from an eight-unit condo in a four-story walkup building—and from what we can gather it’s on the top floor. But once you’re there it’s charming indeed, with 11-foot ceilings, painted exposed brick, and a skylight that fills the apartment with light. (Hey, it’s one perk of being on the top floor.)

The apartment is laid as as one long, narrow space, with the living room in front and the bedroom in back. The living room is the focal point of the apartment, with a fireplace surrounded in exposed brick. We’re digging the large shelving unit, accessed by a ladder—shelving is everything when it comes to smaller apartments, and this pad has got it down.

The kitchen is spacious enough to fit a small dining room table. It’s also well outfitted with cabinetry.

Both the bedroom and bathroom are located toward the rear of the apartment. There’s a nice amount of light in the bedroom, as well as views looking down on surrounding Park Slope townhouses.

132 St. Marks Place is located right off the neighborhood’s main drag of 5th Avenue and just a few blocks from the Barclays Center. The location’s great… the walkup less so.
