It’s hard not to fall for Greenpoint’s mix of waterfront loft energy and quaint, leafy old-school ethnic enclave. On a typically twee and tree-lined block in a prime spot between McCarren and McGolrick Parks, this one-bedroom-with-possibilities co-op at 100 Newel Street, asking $660K, is on the parlor floor of a totally charming building and has great prewar bones; the 800-square-foot apartment’s layout, though, is somewhat in need of an update.

Pre-war charm and character are, in fact, in evidence in the home’s sunny eat-in kitchen. Ten-foot ceilings and crown moldings, restored wood floors and a stunning bay window in the living room go a long way to balancing out the home’s railroad layout; the home’s current configuration includes the dreaded have-to-walk-through-the-bedroom-to -get-to-the-bathroom. And switching rooms around isn’t as easy as you may think.

In the compact but refreshingly modern eat-in kitchen, stone tile, custom cabinetry and butcher-block countertops keep the quality high.

A large common backyard with a barbecue grill and lawn furniture is a perk just about everyone can get behind.

Though it may be a slog to get to the bathroom through the apartment’s parade of rooms, this well-run co-op building definitely tries to make life easier: Getting the green light are subletting, gifting, pieds-a-terre, co-purchasing, and pets.
