Renovated Two-Bedroom in Alfred Tredway White’s Historic Cobble Hill Towers Asks $980K

In a building with a noteworthy architectural pedigree, this corner unit in Cobble Hill was renovated with an open plan living room and kitchen, beamed ceilings and built-in storage. It is on the fourth floor of 140 Warren Street and is part of the Cobble Hill Towers, the 1870s red-brick buildings originally developed by philanthropist Alfred Tredway White as housing for the working class.

In the Cobble Hill Historic District, the complex of six-story buildings designed by William Field & Son went condo in 2010. The walk-up buildings are known for their exterior hallways and staircases, an original feature intended to increase fire safety and access to the health benefits of fresh water. Consisting only of a few rooms, each unit originally had running water, a closet and a stove for cooking and heating.

Renovated by the architect owner according to the listing, the unit opens into the dining, living and kitchen area with wood floors, white walls, a built-in bookcase and the aforementioned beamed ceilings, also painted white. The living room seating is a custom-made sofa tucked into the windowed bay of the tower which has views out to Warren Street.

A wood-topped peninsula includes some extra seating in the kitchen which has white slab front cabinets and a white tile backsplash. There is a dishwasher and a mint green Smeg refrigerator provides a bit of color.

Both bedrooms face the garden courtyard of the complex. They have wood floors and some white-painted exposed brick walls. The smaller of the two has a built-in desk and wall of storage. There are two more closets outside of the bedrooms.

The full bath has a pocket door, two narrow windows and white fixtures and wall tiles.

Amenities in the complex include the landscaped courtyards, laundry and bike and stroller parking. This unit has $708 in common charges and $766 in taxes a month.

Rebekah Carver of Douglas Elliman has the listing and it is priced at $980,000. Worth the ask?
