Share this Article

If you like the idea of soaring ceilings and lots of windows, take notes on this roundup of StreetEasy’s Most Wanted -- the 10 sales listings StreetEasy users saved more often than any others -- which features a selection of well-lit lofts.

Take, for example, this two-bedroom, two-bath duplex-plus-loft (pictured) located on South Second Street in Williamsburg on the market for $699k. The condo has floor to ceiling windows on two sides and two private terraces with views of the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building. A loft for a home office or bedroom, central a/c and a W/D round out this space.There’s a tax abatement (taxes are just $5 a month right now) and relatively low common charges at $313.  

In Cobble Hill on Bergen Street and Boerum Place is an airy $699k two-bedroom plus sleeping loft, one-bathroom condo. The industrial chic loft was originally designed and sold as a studio, has double height ceilings and a wall of glass to the north. It also has a private entrance and a privately accessed atrium. A flight of stairs leads to the sleeping loft, and behind the living/dining area is a separate office and guest room. The bathroom has a new vanity with a stone top, and there’s a W/D. 

In downtown Manhattan, a fifth floor $2.35m three-bedroom, two-bath loft co-op sports 15 windows (including one in the kitchen) and views of NoHo. The seven-unit live/work building is located on Bond and Lafayette Streets. Other perks include 10’ ceilings, a W/D and a new hydraulic windowed(!) key-locked elevator.
