There are many things to love about Brooklyn Heights, one of those being the neighborhood’s “fruit streets.” Pineapple, Cranberry and Orange streets are all known in the area not just for the whimsical names, but for their historic architecture and prime location near the waterfront promenade. The cooperative at 55 Pineapple Street, also known as the Hamilton House, is one of those stately historic buildings that make the fruit streets so unique. This studio, now on the market for $469,000, retains the building’s prewar charm while also boasting some upgrades to maximize the space.
The apartment boasts a proper foyer and hallway, which leads to the living room. Throughout, you’ll find arched doorways, moldings, and built-ins. A coved ceiling draws the eye upward and makes the space feel more spacious and airy than the average studio. Upgrades to the interior include refinished wood floors, fresh paint, and new tile.
The windowed kitchen has rows of new cabinetry, a decent amount of counter space, and a black-and-white tiled floor.
The built-in, queen-size Murphy bed was integrated into the living room. The space, with northern and eastern exposures, is large enough to carve out distinct areas for living, dining, and sleeping.
The bathroom got upgrades too, like new subway tile and penny-round flooring, a newly reglazed tub, vanity and medicine cabinet. Just outside the bathroom, there are three closets for storage.
The Hamilton House offers a live-in superintendent, common courtyard garden with barbecue, laundry room and bike storage. But what a new resident will really love is the surrounding locale–and not just the charming street name. Cadman Plaza Park is to the east, with Brooklyn Bridge Park and the Brooklyn Heights Promenade along the waterfront. Shops and restaurants line the nearby main drag, Montague Street. Finally, this studio is a short walk to the ferry, 2/3, A/C, R and 4/5 subway lines. It last sold in 2013 for $345,000.
