This two-bedroom loft comes from the Mill, an 1800s jute factory turned 55-unit condo at 376 President Street in Carroll Gardens. The apartments are all unique–here’s a look at a quirky one bedroom that hit the market this spring for $770,000–and this one, asking $1.499 million, stands out because of its views of the Brooklyn skyline, fun interior design, and old factory details like wood posts and beams, matte black iron joints, window shutters, and exposed brick.
376 President Street
You might not associate Carroll Gardens with industrial loft buildings, but rather with quaint brick row houses and the charming landscaped front gardens that give the neighborhood its name. But the Mill Building at 376 President Street is a fine example of the former (There’s a building by the same name in Williamsburg that was once home to supermodel Agyness Deyn, if you’re confused). Similar to Park Slope’s Ansonia Court, which so many love for its rustic, almost-gritty Brooklyn factory charm, this 55-unit former jute factory offers a rare warmth and period details unique to this kind of converted industrial building. It’s no less a modern condo though, with an elevator, parking and central A/C. This compact one-bedroom loft, asking $770,000–it last sold for $440,000 in 2012–has been updated with custom interiors that make the best of the apartment’s factory bones.
