We won’t blame you if this Park Slope apartment makes you drool. Located at 85 Sixth Avenue, the 10-unit condo was built for the Brooklyn social club the Carleton Club in 1890. The historic brick building holds this bright and lofty apartment, which hits the right balance between simple, modern design and some more historic interior touches. It’ll likely get snatched up quickly with an ask of $675,000.

The listing calls this an “open plan artist’s studio” considering the only bedroom is situated on the upstairs loft. (An alternative floorplan suggests another bedroom could be carved out of the main floor.) But for now, the living area boasts lots of lofty space, with pressed tin ceilings at a height of 13 feet. The loft is separated by large glass doors so the light streams through to the upper floor.

The current configuration allows for office space on the lower level, which has been cleverly built out atop a platform. The loft is heavy on storage: besides these bookcases, there are four closets, overhead cabinets and a drawer and pull-out twin bed platform beneath the platform.

The historic building, on the corner of Sixth Avenue and St. Marks, is close to Atlantic Terminal in one direction and Grand Army Plaza in the other. But who would want to leave such a lovely apartment?
