While Soho and DUMBO might have to fight it out over which was the more original loft neighborhood, there’s no doubt that they brought living in a big, airy, open former industrial space, with maximum flexibility and minimum furniture, to a whole new level of cool. This loft at 50 Bridge Street in the Brooklyn waterfront neighborhood brings both loft and luxury living up-to-date, and at a $1.3 millon price it doesn’t rule out the entire creative class.
The loft condo doesn’t pull any punches; as soon as you enter you’re in the expansive great room that comprises most of the 1,209-square-foot home. Southern and western exposures assure that sunlight is part of the picture.
An open U-shaped kitchen has a walk-in pantry and a trim, tailored European look. An in-unit washer/dryer ups the comfort and convenience factor.
With windows on both sides and a sleeping alcove with a built-in closet that’s big enough for a king-sized bed, an enclosed study and the aforementioned pantry, there’s lots of open space, a few handy enclosures and lots of light.
The current rooms could easily be opened back up for more of a studio/loft experience, or more could be added for privacy and places for your child’s pet hamster to hide after escaping from its cage. Lifestyle choices are strictly up to you, hence the popularity of lofts.
50 Bridge Street is one of the neighborhood’s original pre-war loft condominium conversions, located in the landmarked historic district. Amenities including a full-time doorman, additional basement laundry and storage and a furnished roof deck with skyline views.
