Here’s a two-bedroom condo from the Toy Factory Lofts, the former home to Tudor Metal Products. From the 1920s to the 1980s, the company, known for designing the popular Depression-era toy Budget Bank and the board game Electric Football, occupied the factory. Today, it’s a 56-unit residential building in Downtown Brooklyn that holds a gym, parking garage and a rooftop deck. This lofty apartment has a big wall of oversized factory windows, not to mention exposures to the east and south that bring light into the open space.

The apartment comes in just over 1,000 square feet. With the open floorplan also comes 11-foot ceilings and the original factory windows, which nearly take up the entire wall.

The dining and office area is right off the living room. We love the lighting above the dining room table — it looks like a super-modern chandelier.

The open kitchen is also adjacent to the living room. The current floorplan ensures easy access to each space and lots of room if you are looking to throw a party. The kitchen has plenty of cabinets and counter spaces, but is separated from the rest of the apartment by a breakfast bar that looks like it also doubles as a huge cutting board.

The master bedroom also gets tons of light, with double exposures from the east and south. Those massive windows look out onto the expanse of Downtown Brooklyn. The second bedroom is significantly smaller, with a lofted bed above an office space. But overall the apartment gets points for its spacious, lofty vibe — we wouldn’t expect anything less from a former toy factory.
