THE LOCATION: While everyone wants to ride the L, not everyone is aware of the quick commute that can be taken on the JMZ. This property stands near the Marcy JMZ train, just one stop from Manhattan. Riding on top of the Williamsburg Bridge, on the way to and from work, is a nice perk indeed. The immediate surrounding includes new found nightlife, restaurants, and shops that line Broadway & South 6th Street. Spots that you won't want to miss include Diner, Marlow & Sons, Patricia's, Miss Favela, and of course Peter Lugars is practically at the doorstep.
OUR THOUGHTS: This owner really cares about his products, as can easily be seen once you walk through the property on South 8th Street, near the corner of Wythe Avenue. The brownstone has been tastefully gut renovated, leaving timeless original features, windows, exposed brick, fireplace, and skylights. New dark wooden floors have been installed throughout, including recessed lighting, modern bathroom & kitchen, etc. The floor through corner unit has 3 exposures... of course ensuring that the apartment is always sunlit. We absolutely love this building and the 3 listings that just landed on the market.
