The listing calls this 800-square-foot condo a studio, but given its spacious duplex layout, we think it functions more like a one-bedroom. Located at 473 Hicks Street in Cobble Hill, the apartment puts a contemporary spin on its classic bones. The huge, geometric bookshelves, translucent kitchen stools, and funky bedroom wallpaper all elevate the home from a boring box to a designer-worthy pad. But what especially draws us in is the subtle use of pink, which doesn’t read girly, but rather sophisticated and fun.
The upper level is the main living/dining space. It features two west-facing exposures with double-paned windows, high ceilings, recessed lighting, and wide-plank hardwood floors. The kitchen has modern cabinets, a breakfast bar, and a much-coveted dishwasher. This level also has a full bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub.
Downstairs the open-plan space can be used as a bedroom or divided into a home office. As it stands now, it’s one large bedroom, decorated in a cool, minimalist style. There’s a half bath, separate laundry room, and plenty of storage space on this floor, too. 473 Hicks Street is a pet-friendly condo building just minutes away from Brooklyn Bridge Park.
