Here’s a sweet studio in Brooklyn that’s sure to grab your attention; if not for its tall ceilings and massive skylight, then for its clever use of space. Located at 56 Court Street in the heart of Brooklyn Heights, this petite light-soaked “penthouse” is a gem that’s been outfitted with enough built-ins to appease even the worst of hoarders, and a huge private roof deck with wide-open views of the neighborhood. Yep, this isn’t quite the cramped studio you ate dry ramen in during your college days.
The unit is an alcove studio/junior one-bedroom located atop a seven-story building. The interior has been meticulously renovated with light finishes and clean lines to make for what feels like a grand 428 square feet. But the winning design solution in this home is obviously its custom built bookcase/storage system. This smart addition not only defines living and sleeping area, but also brings a pop of color and lots of character into the otherwise minimal space.
The home also features pristine hardwood floors, a pass-through kitchen, dishwasher, an entry foyer with storage closet, and plenty of other built-ins throughout. There’s also central a/c and heat, and the building is served by an elevator. So really, the only walk-up you’ll have to take here will be to your extra-large, 450-square-foot private rooftop space.
With a very reasonable price tag of $485,000, this quirky pad would make for a great starter home, rental investment or pied-a-terre. And you really can’t beat its location in one of Brooklyn’s best neighborhoods.
