One of the few true converted loft buildings in Williamsburg and the only one of its kind on the North Side: Mason Fisk at 72 Berry Street. Rarely available one bedroom loft with the coveted windowed home office now for sale. A spacious living/dining combination floorplan is bathed in light from south west exposure, while 10 ½ foot ceilings accentuate the original exposed brick and wooden beams, merging industrial details with modern comfort. Large windows over tree tops and brownstone Brooklyn afford sweeping views from the Williamsburg Bridge to the Empire State Building and beyond. The master bedroom has floor to ceiling windows to the south and a second window facing west, while the windowed home office faces south, is bright and sunny, and easily accommodates a queen size bed and other furniture. Best of all these two rooms are at opposite corners of the home- the split layout preferred by most. The open marble kitchen is in mint condition and a chefs dream with Sub-zero refrigerator and wine cooler; Bosch stove, oven and dishwasher; and Wolf gas range. A large marble island provides a bounty of countertop space. The Corian tiled bath has double sinks, and separate soaking tub and rainwater shower. The apartment has central heat and A/C and a Bosch stacked washer/dryer along with plentiful closet space. Apartments in this lovely boutique building are highly desired and rarely come to market.
Williamsburg is nestled between Greenpoint and Bedford-Stuyvesant, along the East River and extending east beyond the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway towards Bushwick. Since its gentrification, Williamsburg has blossomed as one of the city's most influential hubs for fashion, indie rock culture, and the local art community. Most blocks feature a diverse array of restaurants, coffee shops, bookstores, and other retail outlets. McCarren Park is North Williamsburg's crown jewel, boasting summer activities such as the weekend farmer's market, a community dog run, and a brand new public swimming pool. Various cultural activities take place along the waterfront as well, including the much celebrated Williamsburg flea market. During nice weather, many residents stroll over the Williamsburg Bridge to enjoy the Lower East Side and East Village of Manhattan. Williamsburg is also easily accessible by train (L, G, J, M, and Z) and the East River Ferry. Various car services and yellow cabs are increasingly present on Bedford and Metropolitan avenues, making travel to Manhattan even easier.
