With a subtle and stylish renovation, lots of irresistible textures like pale wood and whitewashed brick, and tons of sunlight, this two-bedroom co-op at 111 South Third Street in prime south Williamsburg is the kind of home you don’t see every day in this city. Its $665,000 ask, while not dirt cheap, is well below the average market price for two bedrooms in this neighborhood. Some caveats: The apartment is only 680 square feet (though there are indeed two bedrooms); it’s a walk-up though only on the third floor; and it’s an HDFC income-restricted co-op, which is why the price is lower than average. But none of those things make this lovely little apartment seem any less like a charming, chic flat right out of Amsterdam.
With a sun-friendly southern exposure, the home features all new hand-whitewashed pine trim and moldings, handmade knotty pine barn doors in the hallway, fully skim-coated drywall, a new soundproofed party wall, original red oak flooring with a rustic pale finish and a newly exposed brick accent wall.
The newly-minted kitchen is a complete delight. Crisp subway tile walls and contrasting tile floors keep things looking neat. Add a Blomberg range/fridge, Bosch dishwasher and quartzite countertops and you’re ready to start cooking at home a lot more. Add to that the convenience of a stacked washer and dryer tucked away in the space.
The larger bedroom looks tranquil and filled with potential; the home’s second bedroom is being used as a sunny home office.
The building offers a verdant backyard with a barbecue grill and plenty of space to mix and mingle or just catch some rays. There are also new video intercom and key-fob access systems for extra security. The home’s low maintenance fee includes heat and hot water. According to the listing, this is an HDFC co-op “but unlike most financing is easily available thanks to the health and strength of the building.”
