Why we have a crush on this property

Some buildings just have a knack for standing the test of time. That’s undoubtedly the case for this jaw-dropping Brooklyn loft, which comes complete with a gigantic clock window.

The loft, fittingly dubbed “Unit Clock,” is perched on the top floor of the Eagle Warehouse. The brick behemoth was built in 1892 and once housed the offices of the Brooklyn Eagle, a local newspaper edited by Walt Whitman for a time. The warehouse was converted into residences in 1980, and this co-op for sale is the crown jewel of them all.

The one-bedroom, one-bathroom home measures just 1,260 square feet. But what it lacks in living space it makes up for with an expansive atmosphere, thanks to 17-foot ceilings and two colossal skylights that bathe the place in light. 

The “The Eagle Warehouse Storage Company” clock is the star of the show, of course. From the open-concept living room, it looks out to the Brooklyn Bridge and Lower Manhattan. (It also ensures the loft’s owners never have an excuse to be late.)

A designer kitchen only adds to the co-op’s grandeur. It’s outfitted with stone countertops, custom cabinets, and top-of-the-line appliances like a Viking stove, a Fisher & Paykel dishwasher, and a Sub-Zero refrigerator. The bedroom, meanwhile, is decked out in built-in bookshelves galore and two walk-in closets. The entire home offers glimpses of exposed bricks, beams, and pipes, sealing the deal on its truly timeless appeal.

The seemingly once-in-a-lifetime chance to own such a historic property comes with a price tag of $2.35 million. Wishful thinking never hurt anybody, right? The co-op is listed by Nick Gavin and Josh Doyle with Compass.
