With Brooklyn’s building boom showing no sign of slowing down, vacant space is becoming a premium and leading some builders to expand existing properties. Such is the case at 52 Herbert Street; developer Rafi Manor (listed on permits as 52 Herbert Villa LLC) expanded a three-story, three-family building dating back to 1910 to four stories and eight units. The red brick facade and arched upper-level windows by SM Studio are reminiscent of 151 Quincy Street, a Bedford-Stuyvesant boutique condominium that has already seen several listings go into contract, and sales have launched on the apartments inside.
The eight units include five one-bedrooms, a garden unit, and a two-bedroom penthouse. Three one-bedrooms are currently on the market, starting at $779K. At an average price of $1,177 per square foot, the building comes in just below the Williamsburg average of $1,27 per square foot (figures per CityRealty data).
Only two units per floor allow for excellent privacy and quiet. The contemporary interiors feature high-end Pella windows, white oak flooring, central heating and cooling with multiple zones, and vented in-unit washer/dryer. The kitchens are equipped with sleek custom Italian cabinetry and integrated appliances by Bosch and Fisher & Paykal. Stylish baths come outfitted with radiant heat flooring, porcelain tiles, wall-hung toilets, vanities with abundant storage, and deep soaking tubs. Several units have private outdoor space, and all apartments come with a dedicated basement storage room.

Like many boutique buildings, one of 52 Herbert Street’s biggest perks is its address, in this case on the border of Williamsburg and Greenpoint. It is close to McCarren Park, Monsignor McGolrick Park, and several local restaurants and conveniences. Transportation options include the Graham Avenue L and the Nassau Avenue G, not to mention CitiBike stations.
