This stylish two-bedroom co-op at 32 Willow Place in Brooklyn Heights does a great job of proving that all waterfront apartments don’t need to be in tall towers. Located on the top floor of a historic limestone and brick (walk-up, unfortunately) building in one of the city’s loveliest waterfront neighborhoods, this renovated two-bedroom co-op offers a dedicated gated parking spot, river views, modern design and pre-war charm in what–according to the listing–Details magazine called “the coolest apartment in Brooklyn,” for $1.075 million.
The apartment isn’t huge at only 900 square feet, but in addition to the top-floor views, you get an open floor plan, high wood-beamed ceilings, exposed brick, a walk-in master closet, a chef’s kitchen, a washer/dryer and abundant light from triple exposures, all on one of the most coveted tree-lined blocks in the Heights, near subways, the Brooklyn Bridge Park waterfront and shopping and dining along Atlantic Avenue and Montague Street. The building also offers its 12 residents a shared garden with a barbecue, and storage space.
The thoroughly modern farmhouse kitchen is perfectly complemented by an exposed brick wall; the kitchen looks out over butcher block countertops to the light-filled living room. On the other side of the living room there’s more space for a separate dining area.
The master bedroom looks like a tranquil oasis with minimal distractions (but plenty of space for good organization).
Every square foot of this well-designed home has been given the chic and well-put-together treatment, from the entryway with dark wood and a round hanging mirror to hallways that show off the apartment’s flexibility in style.
