Things we love about this property crush:

Located among the charming brownstones of Park Slope, this co-op happens to be in one of the most coveted buildings in the neighborhood: Ansonia Court, once home to the Ansonia Clock Factory.

But the space itself is a showstopper from the entrance. The loft boats 13-foot ceilings that hover above a massive 30-plus-foot living/dining/kitchen. There’s bleached oak flooring and four windows look out to north and west exposures. When real estate agents describe a “light-filled room,” this could be the floor model. It’s here that you’ll find an open kitchen—with new appliances—that reveals the original factory’s wood beams. The home’s two bedrooms could easily be converted to three, which would be ideal for a home office or art studio. Each bathroom boasts a tub—one of which is in the master and has a spa-like Jacuzzi. What’s more is that the loft has a new washer and dryer.

The historic building is set around an interior courtyard that provides respite in the neighborhood’s bustling block. You won’t be at a loss for shopping, restaurants, or cool neighbors here.
