It feels rare to find a cool listing that’s under $1 million in New York City these days. But here’s a one-bedroom condo at 25 Carroll Street, in the Columbia Street Waterfront District of Brooklyn, that’s asking $850,000. You’ll find the quaint, quiet neighborhood just west of Carroll Gardens and just north of Red Hook. It’s not the easiest place to get to, as there’s no direct subway access, but the seclusion is part of its charm. There are also amazing views of lower Manhattan from here, which you can enjoy from this condo that is now on the market.
25 Carroll Street has an interesting story behind it. According to the website, it was constructed in 1898 when this area was still industrial waterfront. The building housed a pasta manufacturing business for almost 30 years, then from the late 1920s through the 1960s it was home to various furniture manufacturers. A renovation in 2010 transformed the building in 17 condo apartments. The interior was definitely designed to give off the loft aesthetic, with 10-foot ceilings, exposed brick and big windows.
This apartment isn’t huge: there’s the living room/open kitchen space and one bedroom, all clocking in at 869 square feet. The bedroom, unfortunately, doesn’t get the same big windows as the living room. The listing also says there is a washer/dryer setup, as well as storage space.
Here’s the cozy balcony off the living room—enough room for a little landscaping and enjoying your coffee in the morning. Did we mention that the views of Lower Manhattan from the Columbia Street Waterfront are pretty stunning?
Because they are! Here’s a peek from 25 Carroll’s shared roof deck. Not bad at all.
