Things we love about this property crush:

It’s not surprising that this apartment was designed by an architect—you’ll spot it in the details the minute you pop open the door. Here, every inch of the 750 square feet of space has been smartly utilized to make it feel big, airy, and beautiful.

Upon entering, the foyer comes stacked with custom white oak built-ins that offer loads of storage; it’s a theme throughout. The open and inviting living space boasts a built-in (here it is again!) home office with floating shelving, beautiful but functional under-window cabinetry, and custom millwork with a built-in (heyyy) sofa.

The modern kitchen has black cabinetry with pretty brass fixtures, a built-in (hello!) Blomberg fridge, dishwasher, and washer/dryer hook-up. In the bathroom, you’ll find exposed beams and subway tiles and a sunny bedroom with two oversized south-facing windows, custom closets, and a bookshelf-ladder that leads to a bonus sleeping loft.

It keeps getting better: The apartment has pickled hardwood flooring, exposed white brick, and is in a prime location (we see you, Prospect Park), and there happens to be a stairway leading to a private roof deck measuring over 350 square feet with top-notch Manhattan skyline views.
