A townhouse on the market is pretty rare in Williamsburg—this is the neighborhood better known for loft apartments and waterfront condos. But this single-family townhouse at 296 Manhattan Avenue is now on the rental market for $13,995 a month. It has been designed with the hipster in mind, with plenty of exposed brick, wooden ceiling beams, and even “locally sourced” hardwood floors.

Restored from one of Williamsburg’s original turn-of-the-century factory buildings, the Factory Lofts at 66 North 1st Street made headlines for its unusual and controversial rooftop addition by architect Robert Scarano. But now that the dust has settled, this adaptive reuse project offers some of the most hip residences in Williamsburg.
Known for making the most of every inch of square footage, the Brooklyn-born Scarano has a knack for thoughtfully designed spaces like this one-bedroom condo with a mezzanine loft — his signature design element.
