The comfortably-configured co-op at 459 12th Street in South Park Slope starts with two levels and lots of open space–and you have the opportunity to go beyond the current two-bedroom configuration with nooks and corners that lend themselves to being used as bedrooms or opened up, loft-style. On the market for $1.2 million, this two-bedroom loft offers a wealth of charming architectural details like weathered brick walls, double-height ceilings in the main areas, a wood-burning fireplace and exposed ceiling beams. Oversized windows offer Manhattan skyline views (the apartment is a third-floor walk-up, so great light, but no elevator).
We’ve featured a unit in this building before, and while this one doesn’t have the gee-whiz factor of a steel-framed mezzanine, it does have more of what adds up to classic loft living. The largest part of the apartment’s lower floor is comprised of a sprawling, sun-filled dining and living area; here’s where you’ll find that wood-burning fireplace, plus built-in bookshelves and cabinetry.
The sunny open kitchen has a bar with ample countertop and gathering space, and top-quality appliances. The first level is completed by a full bath and an office nook that could be used as a small bedroom.
The upstairs loft level can be accessed by two separate staircases. A central sitting room/hallway is open to the floor below.
The skylit master suite features a full bathroom, a laundry area and an over-the-bed loft for additional storage space (or additional hang-out space if you’re not claustrophic and don’t mind climbing).
A home office, which can easily be an additional bedroom, is upstairs also. The pet-friendly building offers storage, a bike area and a shared roof deck to take those city skyline views al fresco.
In addition to putting you just a block from Prospect Park, this prime South Slope location is steps from favorites like Talde and Applewood restaurants, the shops and cafes of Seventh Avenue and the Park Slope Armory YMCA, and within a few blocks of the F and G trains.
