Most Cobble Hill residents are familiar with the Cobble Hill Towers, distinctive red brick buildings—nine six-story walk-ups in all—built in 1879 by the philanthropist Alfred Tredway White. The buildings were converted to condos in 2010, and what was formerly envisioned as worker’s tenements is now hot Brooklyn real estate. This particular one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment has been thoroughly renovated, with some custom touches from the dining table to the closet doors. The apartment sold three years ago for $416,120, and has just hit the market asking $675,000.

The apartment is a modest 667 square feet. The living room boasts exposed brick walls, and the original ceiling beams were uncovered in the renovation and sound-proofed. Four custom, white-washed oak closet doors compliment the white-washed oak wood floors. The living room looks out north, across Baltic Street.

The kitchen was opened up during the reno, and got custom birch wood countertops, a custom birch wood dining table that can seat four, and new appliances that include a dishwasher. Those new additions are offset by the more rustic brick and wood elements.

The corner bedroom is located adjacent to the kitchen. The windows here face south, down upon one of the landscaped courtyards that The Cobble Hill Towers are known for. (The buildings surround two large private courtyards that are exclusive to residents and their guests.)

The “towers” face Warren, Hicks and Baltic Streets, and are located just off the BQE along the eastern edge of Cobble Hill. (The waterfront, and the entrance to Brooklyn Bridge Park, are both short walks away.) For more backstory on this fascinating development, and Alfred T. White’s vision to create a new model for worker housing, go here.
