So we’re guessing there are several kinds of people this rental listing will appeal to. First, if you’ve been planning to film your pilot episode of “Hipster Hoarders,” your search is over. Lovers of real industrial loftslog cabins, treehouses, birdhouses, she sheds, cowboy camping, glamping opods in your living room: This one will go fast!

In all seriousness, this 1,400 square foot three-bedroom (or whatever room you need!) loft that’s renting for $4,600 a month might not be a bargain, but it’s a decent amount of lovely Greenpoint space. And if you’re into lofts (and assuming this is actually a legal dwelling. Or a semi-legal dwelling with good karma), the possibilities are endless. This lovely loft is in a terrific neighborhood, near the waterfront and surrounded by cafes, quirky boutiques, bars both chic and chill, the ferry, the G train, picturesque streetscapes and lots of friendly neighbors in their super-cool cowboy-treehouse lofts. We’re hoping the current tenants have found a new dream home, because clearly this listing is an invitation to Live the Dream.

We don’t get much written info with the listing, other than the fact that this “massive industrial space converted into loft living” comes with a “raised dining area, kitchen bar, and wood cabin bathroom” that “sets it apart from everything else you have seen.” We don’t see too many wood cabin bathrooms, even in Brooklyn, so yes.

But pictures speak louder anyway, and there are many, many of those, reminding us that when it’s impeccably curated, chaos can look a lot like art. So let’s have a closer look. Oops, watch your step…

We’ll call this “five minutes in the kitchen.”

It’s a good time for a game of “What is it??”

Not going unnoticed, this fabulous closet would be the envy of any fashionista, even without the well-thumbed stack of fabulous Swedish art/fashion magazines. Also, this impressive style garage is by far the tidiest part of the home, which says something about values here (not that we’re judging!). The hangers match; sweaters dare not fall out of line.

Here in the nursery, can’t think of a better place for this bear than on what looks a lot like a tree.

It’s actually refreshing not to see yards of marble and soaking tubs, kitchen cabins instead of rooftop cabanas. Because sometimes a dream catcher is all you need.
