While keeping its turn-of-the-century industrial charm, this three-bedroom duplex loft was given an architect’s renovation, with both details and space arranged to accommodate modern family life.

The Ansonia Court Clock Factory at 420 12th Street may be a loft among the brownstones of Park Slope, but the co-op complex is a favorite in the area. A pretty central courtyard, warm-yet-industrial loft apartments and a laid-back, convenient South Slope location make homes here unique and sought-after. Residents generally put their own stamp on their own brick-clad lofts, and this three-bedroom duplex is no exception. The $1.9 million price tag does seem like a lot for the real space, and the co-op lacks the amenities of a full-service building, but people truly love the Ansonia’s charm, so we’re guessing this duplex will do pretty well.

On the first floor of this architect-designed three-bedroom duplex loft is a “magazine-worthy open-plan” living space made up of a living area, kitchen, dining room and powder room. Those big loft windows are good for plenty of sunshine.

The stylishly renovated kitchen features gleaming Carrara marble countertops, a smartly-outfitted central island, Shaws farmhouse sink and top-of-the-line appliances. Opposite the kitchen, a big pantry provides storage. In the dining room, a built-in marble-topped sideboard rocks a clever office nook with shelving above. A powder room is tucked under the stairs.

Another charmingly outfitted bathroom features a clawfoot tub and Kohler utility sink. Two very narrow but light-filled bedrooms make good use of space with custom built-in bookcases and an etched-glass pocket door, which makes things flexible: You can have have one good-sized room or two small ones–use one as a guest room and another as an office, as they do have separate entrances. And when the twins arrive, you’re good (at least for a little while, though you’re down a guest room). There’s also a full-sized washer-dryer, new high-efficiency boiler, stroller parking and decent storage.

One thing that sets Ansonia Court apart is its coveted private interior courtyard. And if you need more green space, Prospect Park is less than two blocks away.
