This Greenpoint building at 59 Green Street was originally a 19th century flower warehouse, but today it holds apartments with lots of lofty goodness. This two bedroom, which has just hit the market for $1.395 million, boasts exposed brick, wood-beamed, 10-foot ceilings and an open floorplan. Located on the top floor, it also gets lots of light from eight big windows, not to mention views toward the water and Manhattan skyline.
You walk right into the long, open entertainment area–made particularly dramatic by the high, wood beamed ceiling. Five windows (which face both south and west) are separated by plenty of wall space to hang artwork.
An alcove kitchen is located right off the living area, but the whole space is kept open, making it ideal for entertaining. Built-in wood shelving matches the ceiling beams above.
Both bedrooms–located on opposite sides of the apartment–feature a decorative fireplace and are surrounded in exposed brick.
Greenpoint isn’t the most convenient location and the 59 Green condo is about a 10 minute walk from the G train. But the good thing about this remote locale? It’s located right along the waterfront and comes with great views of the East River and city skyline. It looks particularly good from the common roof deck, located just one floor higher than this for-sale pad.
