If you’ve got 14-foot-tall ceilings in your apartment, you may as well take advantage of them. This architect-designed co-op at 423 Atlantic Avenue, in Boerum Hill, utilized its soaring ceilings in unique ways. The apartment boasts a floor-to-ceiling library with custom shelves that span nearly 30 feet. It’s accessed by a steel-construction mezzanine built into the space. If you’re a fan of such quirky details (or at least own a lot of books), you’ll be happy to know the one-of-a-kind pad has just hit the market for $1.695 million.

The unique interior details are the result of the building’s past as an Ex Lax factory. (It was built in the 1920s and converted to co-ops in 1981.) The 14-foot, arched ceilings tower over the open living and dining room, which spans 24 by 25 feet. The space is lined with the custom-built steel mezzanine. The mezzanine, and the shelving system, span across the apartment.

The kitchen is situated off the open living/dining room. Its location underneath the mezzanine makes for a unique ceiling, which is offset by the stark white cabinetry.

Although this is officially a two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment, there’s enough room for three bedrooms if you put one on top of the mezzanine, in the flexible loft space. It’s a little set-off for privacy, but comes with great views of the rest of the apartment. As for the master bedroom, it has an ensuite bathroom with its own dressing room, while the second bedroom comes with a walk-in closet of its own.

Co-op residents share a landscaped common roof terrace with 360-degree views of Brooklyn and Manhattan.

As the floor plan shows, this apartment comes with plenty of space to get creative–and plenty of room to add even more bookshelves.
