The exterior of this 1000-square-foot loft located at 457 Grand Street in Williamsburg isn’t particularly awe-inspiring. A typical turn-of-the-century red masonry building with charming window details, it’s pleasant to look at but doesn’t quite take your breath away. The same cannot be said for the gorgeously renovated and exceptionally bright loft hiding within.
The space beautifully takes advantage of the building’s original features like hardwood floors, brick walls, and exposed ceiling beams, then ups the ante with a host of modern touches including multiple skylights, tons of custom built-ins, and a stunning, larger-than-life glass wall/door separating the bedroom from the living area.
The generously proportioned kitchen is perfect for master chefs. Its slate floor, top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, and abundance of counter and cabinet space make it a wonderful surprise in an apartment of this size. Even if you’re not much of a cook, the exquisite wood breakfast bar featuring delicate pendant lighting, plus separate dining nook with room for a small table and chairs, makes eating any kind of meal here enjoyable.
A seamless flow from the kitchen area to the large living room is perfect for entertaining, and the massive bedroom can easily fit a king-sized bed and more. The “Wow, this is pretty big and gorgeous too.” bathroom has plenty of storage and a thoroughly relaxing rain shower.
But we’re not done yet. This Brooklyn abode also includes two stories of hard-to-come-by outdoor space, boasting not only a terrace but a custom-built rooftop garden and lounge with separate irrigation system and outdoor shower.
