The listing calls this two-bedroom condo on the lower two floors of a converted milk factory at 395 Smith Street “the most unique hideaway in Carroll Gardens,” and we’ll agree there’s some extremely creative use of space at work. Besides that, there are two stories, two bedrooms, and two baths for a reasonable-sounding $875,000 in an expensive and lovely neighborhood.

While there are lots of interesting details to thrill anyone who loves industrial interiors, modern comforts like central air and an intercom take the industrial edge off the space, which contains two “loft bedrooms,” two baths, a living room, a dining room, a home office and a library.

Also a kitchen, which looks a bit spartan but is clean and bright and contains all the necessities.

Windows appear where it is possible for them to do so, providing the mezzanine and library with sunlight that also finds its way through glass block walls and floors, brightening up the level below, which isn’t so lucky on the window front.

Fortunately for the bedrooms, they’re upstairs along with more architectural details like beamed ceilings, exposed brick, built-ins and a glass and metal balustrade (which, in case you’ve always wondered, is a “railing supported by balusters, especially an ornamental parapet on a balcony, bridge, or terrace”). They also get windows, but you’ll have to go back downstairs for lots of headroom.

The apartment is one of twelve units in this cool-looking loft building.
