The Deco-era residential tower at 75 Livingston Street anchors a tree-lined, historic block of the Brooklyn Heights neighborhood, known for its well-preserved townhouses and apartment buildings. But the bold, custom-designed interiors in this $4,650,000 co-op–a combination of two units designed by architect Henry Smith-Miller–look more like what you’d find in a Manhattan loft. The 3,000-square-foot, three-bedroom apartment may have a few quirks, but its wrap-around terraces and stunning skyline, bridge and river views are definitely the good kind of extraordinary.
