When it comes to square footage, this apartment falls short of a traditional loft, but it’s certainly got the aesthetic down, with high ceilings, exposed brick and exposed wood. The one-bedroom unit–which the listing says could be converted to two bedrooms–is located in a brick townhouse at 282 Sackett Street in Carroll Gardens, a neighborhood known for its brownstones, not warehouse buildings. This is a railroad apartment, with the living room, kitchen and bedroom stacked on top of each other. And it is currently on the rental market for a grand total of $3,000 a month.
You enter the apartment into a living room, which has an open kitchen in the back. The renovated kitchen has tiled floors, wood cabinetry, and a dishwasher, but the living room is a little more rustic, distinguished by wood floors and some exposed brick. There are 11-foot ceilings throughout.
The bedroom is our favorite room of the apartment, with exposed brick and wood framing along the doorway. This detail helps create two spaces within the bedroom: the front area, which holds the furniture, and the back, which holds the bed. (Or, as the listing points out, it could be separated into two different bedroom areas.) For now, the two windows framing the single bed make it a picture-perfect scene.
This apartment is located in a charming area of Carroll Gardens, just off the main drag of Court Street. The block is filled with low-rise townhouses such as this, and Carroll Park is just around the corner. This is anything but gritty loft living–it’s just a cute, lofty apartment in one of Brooklyn’s loveliest neighborhoods.
