The circus has (sort of) come to town in Bed-Stuy. This two-bedroom loft at 689 Myrtle Avenue, the Chocolate Factory condo, is owned by a juggler and an aerialist who has outfitted the 1,222-square-foot pad with some quirky touches. These include an assembly used for aerialist silks that now holds a fun egg chair, as well as retro and industrial touches. The home is asking $1,050,000.

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.
Check it out
689 Myrtle Avenue in Bed-Stuy is known as the Chocolate Factory Lofts as this warehouse building was formerly home to the Chocoline Chocolate Factory. Today there are 45 loft apartments in the building, and this one stands out from the rest–at least according to the listing. The one-bedroom pad is decked out with custom, one-of-a-kind details, like a curved, iron and reclaimed wood staircase and a hand-built five section “disappearing” closet. (In that it’s storage space that blends right in with the apartment.) This quirky loft has just hit the market for a hair under $1 million.
