There’s something about this $1.5 million loft at 44 Cheever Place that truly captures the best of Brooklyn living. Residing in a converted former Catholic schoolhouse, this two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo has more than just a rich history. The quintessential loft also has an open floor plan, soaring ceilings, exposed brick walls and hardwood floors. Yet, its most impressive features may be a lofted second bedroom and well-concealed storage.
Enter to find a spacious living area with giant windows and twelve-foot ceilings accented by concrete beams. The open kitchen has a surprisingly substantial amount of counter space, along with a few finishes we know New Yorkers love to see: granite, stainless steel, and cherry wood. The abundant granite countertops extend to a breakfast bar; and the stainless steel doesn’t just apply to the top-of-the-line appliances, but to the backsplash as well. Cherry wood cabinets complete the space along with a few bonuses in the form of a wine refrigerator and a convenient washer and dryer.
The rest of the generous living section includes a dining area, while an industrial staircase of metal and wood leads to one of the condo’s bedrooms—but not before passing the bathroom right off the first landing. The lofted corner bedroom features natural light from windows on two walls. There’s no shortage of storage in this room with a closet, stylishly concealed by a yellow sliding panel; a giant custom bookshelf; and a massive cubbyhole above.
On the other side of the apartment, the master suite also boasts a great deal of storage. Additionally, the master bath features a wall of mirrors, a large double sink, a glass-enclosed shower, and—you guessed it—more storage.
Of course, this building understands that true Brooklyn living wouldn’t be complete without enjoying all that your neighborhood has to offer. That’s why there’s a landscaped common roof deck and a bike room. So if you’re thinking of taking your bike for a spin to the nearby Brooklyn Bridge Park or to the neighborhood’s trendy restaurants and shopping, this pad with a ton of storage has a safe place to store it when you return.
