Welcome to one of the original condo conversions in Williamsburg - the iconic Smith Gray. Apartment 4F perfectly exemplifies the loft way of life that has drawn people to Williamsburg's South Side for years. Clocking in at 861 SF this legal studio, used as a 1-bedroom -with additional Murphy Bed- is larger than many 2-bedroom units on the market now (and so much more special). Your first impression upon entering are the jaw-dropping 11'3' ceilings and the three massive 8' x 4' windows that allow for light all day and glorious views. The remodel for this apartment has a sleek, minimalist and very European vibe with white lacquer cabinets throughout the kitchen and cool, limestone countertops. The appliances are top-of-the-line with a Gaggenau Steam oven and gas range, a Miele dishwasher and SubZero refrigerator.With the built-in Murphy Bed up, there is ample room for a very large dining table that you can simply slide over to fold the bed down again. The open living space is the very definition of industrial chic with its wooden plank ceilings and 2 cast iron pillars. The view from here is truly special - with the historical landmarked Kings County Bank building and a charming plaza with flowers and bistro seating right out your window along with views of the Williamsburg Bridge.The room used as a bedroom has pocket doors on either side to create your zen sanctuary. The bathroom feels like a spa with opaque, creamy Japanese tiles and walnut vanity and bench.Storage will never be an issue with 2 very large closets, and built in cabinets on the wall surrounding the Murphy Bed plus a utility closet with your own water heater/boiler and HVAC system. You could even install a washer/dryer in here as many owners have done.Converted to condos in 2002, the desirable Smith Gray building is one of the original warehouse conversions that started it all in Williamsburg. It features laundry on every floor, a great common courtyard and one of the best shared roof decks in the area, as well as bike storage in the basement, a video intercom system and a wonderful Super and Porter. Worried about the L train? - well don't be. The J,M,Z trains are a few short steps up Broadway with direct access to midtown or downtown Manhattan and the Schaefer Landing East River Ferry is a few-minute walk away. Live in the epicenter of all that South Williamsburg has to offer with some of the best restaurants and watering holes like Meadowsweet, Diner, Marlowe & Sons, OTB, Motorino, Barano and Peter Luger's a stone's throw away, as well as City Acres a fantastic supermarket just down Broadway.
