Every once in a while a real estate opportunity comes along that is too good to pass up, and this former firehouse at 411 Kent Avenue on the Williamsburg waterfront is a perfect example. The very definition of a creative Brooklyn loft, the existing 3,300-square foot, two-story building features massive open spaces, high ceilings, huge windows, multiple skylights, original wood floors, exposed brick, and completely exposed wood ceiling joists.

A full-height polished basement is a rare bonus, and a picturesque Bamboo backyard landscape flowing upward from the ground-floor commercial space to the second-floor back roof terrace provides an inventive and refreshing splash of green to a somewhat austere environment.

From the classic facade with decorative cornice to the rough-around-the-edges interior, we can only imagine the magic a full-scale restoration would bring to life. Combine the property’s buildable potential of 11,400-square-feet with its bundle of air rights and commercial/community/residential zoning, then add in the vibrant revitalization of the surrounding Brooklyn waterfront, and you’ve got an excellent investment in the making.

Whether you’re looking for a new home with a unique personality and live/work potential or the chance for major development in the hottest neighborhood in Brooklyn, this mixed-use property listed at $6.4 million is perfectly suited for resident and investor alike.
