This loft apartment comes from the well-known Brooklyn condo the Chocolate Factory Lofts at 689 Myrtle Avenue. (The building was once, not surprisingly, a chocolate factory.) The Bed-Stuy pad, asking $860,000, is much like the other units that have hit the market: spacious, 13-foot ceilings and oversized casement windows. The building’s also known for its creative owners who deck out their apartments (just check out this apartment on the market last summer with a “floating” closet and custom staircase) and this latest apartment is no different.

A long entrance foyer is framed by a walk-in closet and large storage space. It ultimately leads to the living room of the 950-square-foot apartment, a wide open space lit by massive casement windows that line the eastern wall.

This customized, built-in banquette that’s lined with white subway tiles separates the living area from the kitchen.

The cute open kitchen was renovated with granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances and a dishwasher. Some greenery gives the space a little pop.

A tiled stairway leads up to the lofted bedroom, which looks down onto the bright living room. There are two closets up here, as well as storage underneath this loft.

This condo conversion was one of the first to boast a green roof deck in Brooklyn, and it’s still decked out with landscaping, crickets and butterflies. (Not to mention 360 degree views of Manhattan and Brooklyn.) Residents also have a private glass enclosed fitness center off the roof amenity. The only drawback to this cool building filled with quirky lofts: the single train nearby is the G, at Myrtle-Willoughby.
