Description

Owned by a juggler and an aerialist, the circus really is in town in this unique and wonderfully imagined 1222 square foot loft. Step this way into their version of the Big Top with 17' ceilings and light streaming in through a breathtaking wall of windows. On ground level, there's a newly renovated bathroom and a brand-new washer dryer, huge hallway closet, full ceiling height bedroom, a kitchen with a granite peninsula and an expansive living/dining room.

Ascend the spiral staircase to a second full ceiling height bedroom with a custom walk-in closet. With walls this huge, who wouldn't want a projection TV? This loft comes with custom 10% light diffusing as well as complete black out blinds, so movie night parties are a cinch. An assembly used for aerialist silks is now holding a fun egg chair. The loft is at ground level, so avoiding the elevator is easy, yet privacy is guaranteed since the space cannot be viewed from the street.

You can gaze at the heavens, but passers by cannot see in making it perfect for a rehearsal space, photo studio or any creative pursuit imaginable. The Chocolate Factory was built in 1947 and converted to condos in 2003 introducing Brooklyn’s first green roof—a unique 5000 sq. ft. tranquil garden space with panoramic views of Manhattan and Brooklyn plus a rooftop atrium gym, giving you everything you need right at home. The building's large capacity elevator makes for effortless moving in, visiting the roof deck or storing your bike in the bike room. There's 24/7 video security and high-speed Verizon Fios internet included in the building's common charges.

Wifi is also available to all residents on the roof if you prefer to work outside. The building just completed a facade renovation which will last for years to come. Right on the border of Bed Stuy and Clinton Hill, the bar and restaurant options abound.

Pratt campus and the shops and cafes on Myrtle Avenue are a short stroll away as is Herbert Von King Park and the Kosciuszko pool. Also conveniently located in the vicinity is Fort Greene Park, Wegmans and the Brooklyn Navy Yard. The G train is 2 blocks away.

Bike lanes and CitiBike stations are also all at your door. You came to New York to live in a loft! Come and get it!

(*Please note, while this apartment is currently configured as a 2-bedroom, this property's legal description in the offering plan is a loft with one living area)
