You might not associate Carroll Gardens with industrial loft buildings, but rather with quaint brick row houses and the charming landscaped front gardens that give the neighborhood its name. But the Mill Building at 376 President Street is a fine example of the former (There’s a building by the same name in Williamsburg that was once home to supermodel Agyness Deyn, if you’re confused). Similar to Park Slope’s Ansonia Court, which so many love for its rustic, almost-gritty Brooklyn factory charm, this 55-unit former jute factory offers a rare warmth and period details unique to this kind of converted industrial building. It’s no less a modern condo though, with an elevator, parking and central A/C. This compact one-bedroom loft, asking $770,000–it last sold for $440,000 in 2012–has been updated with custom interiors that make the best of the apartment’s factory bones.

The listing calls it a “loft lover’s oasis,” and it certainly feels like one, with soaring ceilings and an enormous window (singular, since the apartment is fairly narrow) for plenty of sunlight, charming pre-war details, lots of exposed brick and wood beams throughout. There’s an open living and dining area, and a spiral staircase winds to a lofted bedroom.

A full wall of custom-designed iron piping and rough-hewn wood bookshelves with an old-fashioned library ladder is a perfect complement to the historic space. One of the home’s two full baths is here as well.

The open kitchen is crisp and tidy in black and white, with granite countertops and a breakfast bar for seating with additional storage. A laundry room adds more convenience.

Up the spiral staircase is a full-height bedroom lined with closets and boasting an en-suite bathroom with a Jacuzzi soaking tub. The bedroom is open to the great room below, so you’ll get treetop views and blue skies through that big living room window.

Located on a classic tree-lined street where Carroll Gardens meets Gowanus (hence the industrial vibe), the Mill Building offers–in addition to the above-mentioned amenities–a live-in super, bike storage, and a lovely landscaped common garden with a cooking grill, benches and tables for dining and entertaining.
