We’re guessing the words “genuine” and “Williamsburg” are spending less and less time together these days, but if you look diligently, you can find the odd authenticity–a big, pretty space that’s actually live/work friendly and isn’t a shiny, overpriced condo calling itself a loft. This one-bedroom-plus-office apartment at 119 North 11th Street looks to be just that. Occupying the third floor of a former paint factory taken over by artists over 30 years ago, it’s approved for mixed use, allowing live/work opportunities. Seeking a rental tenant for $6,800 per month, the space has many of the comforts of those shiny new buildings–central air, a washer/dryer, a roof deck with great views–without the shiny new.
At 1,600+ square feet, the apartment’s layout gives you plenty of options to make it your own. The living room shows off its pre-war charm as well as its artistic talent with tons of sunlight, gorgeous wood floors, high ceilings, wood columns and beams and plenty of exposed brick.
The kitchen is perfect for a loft, yet stylish and grown-up with black, white, wood, tile, and steel accents.
Creature comforts aren’t sacrificed, with the aforementioned air conditioning system, washer/dryer, dishwasher, building elevator and elegant bath with an antique claw foot bathtub ready to make things easy for you, no matter how authentic your commitment to art might be.
