As Clinton Hill Cooperatives go, this one-bedroom is among the cutest we have seen, with a renovation that jibes with the modest and trendy origins of the advanced.
The World Battle II-era housing advanced solved a housing scarcity for Navy officers and enlisted males and their households. Sited near the Brooklyn Navy Yard on two properties, referred to as North Campus and South Campus, the advanced of 12 buildings was designed by Harrison, Fouilhoux & Abramovitz and supposed to accommodate round 1,200 households.
This unit is positioned at 345 Clinton Avenue, the South Campus, on the marginally elevated first flooring, which explains a quirk of the condo. Behind the doorway door, a brief flight of steps results in the unit.
The unique format, with its feeling of openness and spaciousness, has been preserved. The lounge is open to a eating space and the kitchen, hidden by a partial wall of storage.
Easy white partitions meet oak parquet flooring, and a financial institution of three massive home windows wraps two exposures. The kitchen has easy white Shaker type cabinets and open shelving, white subway tile, wooden counters, a capacious pantry and a dishwasher.
An identical look prevails within the bed room, which is massive and has two home windows on two exposures. The traditional tub has been up to date with black and white cement tile on the ground. The unit has 4 closets in whole.
Month-to-month upkeep for the condo is $909. Listed by Emma James of Corcoran, the unit is asking $675,000. What do you suppose?
