It boasts spectacular views of the Statue of Liberty and Manhattan skyline. It features original Civil War-era wood beams and natural oak flooring. But the best attribute of the two-and-a-half bedroom apartment available to rent at 275 Conover Street might very well be the Fairway Market located on the ground floor of the building. Found in the historic Red Hook Stores building, a 1860s-era warehouse with renovated loft apartments, the pad is asking $7,000 per month (grocery bill not included). As Brick Underground learned, that’s roughly two and a half times the median rent for a two-bedroom in the Brooklyn neighborhood.

The five-story red-brick building was first erected along the waterfront as a warehouse in 1869. In 2006, its commercial space was converted into apartments and the Fairway chain opened on the ground floor.
The current unit available is the largest in the coveted building. The 3,000-square-foot loft includes a contemporary kitchen complemented by original Civil War-era wood beams and refinished oak floors. The 13-foot high ceilings and oversized windows provide a set-up perfect for entertaining guests.
The spacious master suite has a stunning view of Lady Liberty, as well as an ensuite bathroom. The second bedroom features lots of closet space. Amenities at the building include a part-time doorman, a fitness center and a landscaped rooftop. Rent also includes a private parking spot for residents.
