This laid-back, sunny home at 875 Saint Marks Avenue in where-it’s-at Crown Heights is the kind of space you hope to find a pretty, historic townhouse across from the Brooklyn Children’s Museum. With plenty of century-old details and carefully designed modern style–and did we mention sunlight?–this one-bedroom condominium looks like a great place to spend an afternoon.
Starting with walls of exposed brick and herringbone floors, the condo’s considered design makes it easy on the eyes. Thee three large curved bay windows provide built-in seating and the kind of character that’s usually missing from a newly-minted condo. Two skylights bring in even more natural light, and three exposures make sure you don’t miss the sunrise or the sunset.
The open kitchen is on-trend blue, with just-right-sized new high-end appliances and lots of storage to go with its charm. A restored stained glass window nods to the home’s history.
The pale, tranquil bedroom continues the light-filled experience with a skylight and three arched windows, plus more exposed brick. In the bath is another skylight, a custom marble-topped vanity and some very cool hand-painted tiles. Additional modern perks include a virtual doorman, central A/C and heating, and an in-unit LG washer/dryer.
