Creative built-ins frame this $900K loft in Greenwood Heights

Just north of Green-Wood Cemetery, on the border of Greenwood Heights and Park Slope, this two-bedroom condo is asking $899,000. The apartment is located at 259 21st Street, a 1905 schoolhouse converted into lofts. The transformation left this unit with original oversized arched windows and 12.5-foot-high beamed ceilings, and the owner’s creative touch added a cool wall of built-in bookshelves that frames both of the sleeping areas.

The home is 1,020 square feet, with plenty of space in the open great room for living and dining. The kitchen features lovely open shelving, which doesn’t leave a ton of room for cabinet space. There is, however, a pantry next to the refrigerator.

A challenge of the space would have been the fact that only one wall had windows. To bring light into the bedrooms, the customized wall of shelving features transparent cutouts that serve the purpose and also add to the architectural creativity. The structure is made of beautiful solid wood and glass-paned doors, while chalkboard paint panels add some more fun.

Closet space is limited, but there is a large closet off the foyer, as well as a washer/dryer and full bathroom.

The building, known as the St. John’s Condominium, has a shared roof deck with views that stretch to the Statue of Liberty.
