Built in 1947 as the Cocoline Chocolate Factory, the pale-orange brick building at 689 Myrtle Avenue in Bed-Stuy now houses 45 condo apartments with unique, spacious layouts. This two-bedroom corner unit offers a quintessential Brooklyn loft, spruced up with a fresh renovation, pops of color, and clever space-maximizing ideas. The 1,182 square-foot residence just hit the market seeking $999,000.

The living and dining area boasts soaring 13-foot ceilings and oversized windows that flood the space in light. Floor-to-ceiling curtains emphasize the height of the space and add some drama, while their light pink hue keeps things feeling airy and fresh. A collection of hanging plants add pops of vibrancy while built-in shelves provide space for books or your collections.

The open kitchen was recently updated with dark blue cabinetry, a marble-tiled island, stainless steel countertops, and new Bosch appliances, including a dishwasher. A custom breakfast banquet is tucked away across from the island and next to french doors that take you out to a small balcony.

This floor also includes a second bedroom that measures about 200 square feet and has a 6.5-foot ceiling height. Next to that flexible room is a separate home office. There are several walk-in closets on this level (one of them houses a washer and dryer) as well as built-in overhead storage options.

The staircase was recently redesigned to include hidden storage in its base and pops against a striped accent wall. Upstairs you’ll find the master bedroom where the bed sits on a raised platform and gets tons of northern light. Another walk-in closet will cover all your storage needs.

According to the listing, the building was the first in Brooklyn to have a green roof, and residents enjoy the serene outdoor space which is landscaped with native plants. There’s also an enclosed fitness center on one side of the roof.
