505 court street, loft, SABO project

This loft comes from the the former Doehler Die Casting Factory, located at 505 Court Street in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn. The building was constructed in 1913 and the loft was first renovated in the ’80s, but since then it’s been transformed into something really special.

That’s because it has undergone a top-to-bottom renovation by SABO Project, who stripped the entire space to reveal the building’s historic details and then added a sleek, modern touch. The result is a stunning, airy and bright space that we’ve drooled over before. Now, it’s on the rental market and you could live in the loft yourself for $5,200 a month.

311 Henry Street, brooklyn heights, rental

Is this three-bedroom rental, at 311 Henry Street in Brooklyn Heights, cute enough for you? It’s located in a brick prewar building just north of Atlantic Avenue, so the apartment interior has plenty of prewar details as well. The rent of $4,400 a month is not all that bad given the amount of rooms and the prime Brooklyn Heights location. Seems like this apartment would serve well as a sophisticated, grownup roommate share.

Brooklyn’s real estate market is hot, but the market for historic townhouses is searing. Today, the NY Post cites Ideal Properties’ latest report which reveals that $3 million-plus townhouse sales in Brownstone Brooklyn and North Brooklyn increased 579 percent in the last five years, and accounted for 9.5 percent of the 1,035 townhouses sold just last year. Record-breaking sales in the last quarter gave the segment its biggest boost, and rising inventory is expected to swell this number even further over the coming year.
