If you’re looking for a home that feels like a townhouse, co-op and loft all rolled into one, this Brooklyn Heights property may be your best bet. It’s located at 25 Joralemon Street, a waterworks building constructed in 1902. It has since been converted into six co-ops, each laid out like duplex “townhouse” units. All six townhouses have their own separate entrance and a unique floorplan, with this one boasting a totally lofty aesthetic.

To access each townhouse, you walk through a private courtyard. This home is located at the end of the courtyard, giving it a nice sense of privacy.

You enter and a hallway leads you to the open living and dining area, where the ceilings peak at 17 feet. (Skylights also flood this space with light.) Who knew you could live in something this lofty in historic Brooklyn Heights? There are still remnants of the historic building on display, though, including a stone fireplace and the arched brickwork framing the windows.

The kitchen has been renovated with cement countertops, hardwood cabinets and a full-sized washer and dryer unit.

The master bedroom is located on the lower floor, off the living room. This space, too, has soaring ceilings. Built-in shelving, a walk-in closet and an en suite bath are other luxuries in here.

Up the stairway to the second floor leads to a second bedroom with skylights and a wall of closets. It also has a small room that’s used for extra storage, but the listing says it could also be a “meditation room.” Our favorite space up here is the den, which looks over the living room downstairs. It’s a cozy and comfortable lofted space that could also be used as a third bedroom.

This co-op is known as the Pumphouse Mews and is located on the only remaining cobblestone block of Brooklyn Heights. Basically, this property is charming inside and out.
