With two exposures, 11-foot ceilings and walls of windows, this 1,100-square-foot two-bedroom loft condo in the Toy Factory Lofts at 176 Johnson Street has its heart in the right place–even if its bathroom isn’t. The historic 1926 building–once the home of Tudor Metal Products and birthplace of many mid-20th-century toys–lends itself to authentic loft living in ever-changing Downtown Brooklyn. A modern renovation makes loft living easy–with a possible exception or two–and the $1.25 million ask comes with low carrying costs.

Not only that, but it’s around the back side of a wall of otherwise enviable closets and practically out the front door. Lofts are flexible and lend themselves to change–we’d imagine a top remodeling choice will be to make a trip to the loo a little more fun.

Those walls of oversized windows have custom treatments consisting of CitiQuiet insulation panels for a private and tranquil home life at the bustling crossroads of several of Brooklyn’s most culture-rich neighborhoods. Additional in-unit amenities include a washer/dryer and central climate control, and the 56-unit building offers  a virtual doorman, a live-in resident manager, a fitness center, a rooftop deck, a package room and bicycle storage,
