At the Sophia Lofts, a bakery warehouse in Williamsburg converted to 11 apartments in 2007, you could pick up this one-bedroom condo for $995,000. (It last sold in 2009 for $555,000.) For a hair less than $1 million the pad offers one bedroom, lots of exposed brick, wood beam ceilings, and those big warehouse windows. Although the apartment still has a bit of warehouse grittiness left to it, spaces like the bathroom and kitchen were modernized, while plenty of shelving was added to hold the owner’s quirky collection of stuff.
Alongside the exposed brick and beams, there’s been tons of shelving and extra storage space built in. The entrance foyer has been transformed into a space packed with antiques, oddities, books and artwork.
The living room is dominated by one of the large windows, and some more smart storage space underneath the television.
The kitchen was renovated and got a dishwasher. The light wood cabinetry contrasts with the even lighter maple hardwood floors.
The bedroom and bathroom–which hug a small laundry room–are located right across from the living room and kitchen. (The apartment isn’t huge, coming in at 789 square feet.) The bedroom boasts all the warehouse details: large window, exposed brick, beamed ceilings. The tiled bathroom has a nice, deep soaking tub.
The high price tag on this one-bedroom apartment is party due to its location, just a few blocks from the Bedford Avenue L train and McCarren Park. Any buyer just needs to be prepared for the looming L train shutdown the MTA approved this month.
