The owner of a small 6 family rental property at 178 Freeman Street put care and craftsmanship into his top floor residence that just isn‘t financially viable for a typical rental unit. It is truly one of a kind.
You feel immediately that it’s so much more than the typical apartment. Nothing builder-basic here - this spot was crafted with love. It feels so homey that it’s practically suburban, while really it’s in central Greenpoint, right around the corner from tons of great coffee shops, restaurants and bars - just a short walk to the subway or ferry.
He‘s moving out, so this beauty is actually on the market! Come in for a closer look.
Watch this video tour to feel the flow of the space, then read on for more photos and details on the design & contents of the home.
The most striking feature of the kitchen is the entire wall of beautiful shaker style stained wood cabinetry with steel bar pulls. It‘s an eye catching and alluring wall that drew me in the moment I entered the space.
Storage is always an issue in our little New York apartments, and this place has it mastered with style.
The bathroom, too, is amazing, with a beautiful stacked laundry washer & dryer right at the door. The crystal clear glass standing shower has one-piece Vigo shower system including a rain head, 6 adjustable body spray jets, and a hand shower all controlled from a central panel.
Simple and welcoming, the bedroom is spacious, gets great southern sun exposure, and continues the crown molding from the previous rooms
Two gorgeous pocket doors separate this room from the kitchen. A hidden Murphy Bed, which comes with the apartment, stands ready to transform the space into a guest room or second bedroom.
I’ve gotten really into making floorplans. Well, I’ve always really loved floorplans, but lately I’ve been making them when I’m on location shooting apartments, because Magic Plan makes it fun. Here’s the plan I made for this space. I didn’t add all the kitchen cabinets, but you already know where those are by now. :)
