If you love closet space–you may want to look elsewhere. This two-bedroom, two-bath unit at 221 Devoe Street in Williamsburg has plenty of appeal. Asking $1,495,000, the modern north Brooklyn condo was featured in House Beautiful; the 1,108-square-foot penthouse has an impressive landscaped 300-square-foot terrace, a wealth of art-inspired interior design–and a notable dearth of closets.

The first thing you may note once inside–other than the lack of a coat closet–is an abundance of southern sunlight through a retractable glass wall that magically opens onto the landscaped terrace. In warm weather, throw open the doors and step out onto an astroturfed, glass-rimmed patio, topped by a pergola.

The living room offers just enough space to live, work or play, surrounded by colorful accent walls. One of those walls highlights a dedicated office nook, with custom millwork by Brooklyn-based GDR. The current homeowner’s goal with this space was to “bring the concrete jungle inside” with jungle-inspired wallpaper, plants, and green astroturf.

A sleek, contemporary kitchen features quartz countertops, modern grey cabinets, and a candy-pink accent wall. Top-of-the-line Bosch appliances and a vented range add serious business to the color play.

The primary bedroom adjoins a sleek en-suite bathroom with a glass-door shower. In this room, you’ll find the apartment’s only walk-in closet, though it’s a fully outfitted one. Here, the homeowner was inspired by William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” expressed with romantic patterned wallpaper.

Sliding doors in the bedroom lead to a private balcony. The home’s second bedroom accommodates a king-sized bed but is currently being used as a library/den.

Additional perks in this fully integrated smart home include a Bosch washer/dryer, electric blinds, central heat/AC–and low taxes and monthly fees, with a 421A tax abatement in place until 2034. The seven-unit boutique condominium has a common roof deck with skyline views, just two blocks from the L train.
