A Cobble Hill two-bedroom conversion that's far from cookie-cutter

How much total do you plan to tip the building staff this year?

So much of the new construction we see these days is beautiful, no question, but is it interesting? Not always. But no one can accuse this two-bedroom, two-bath co-op on Pacific Street in Cobble Hill of being run-of-the-mill. Situated in a converted school, it's as far from rote as can be, with notable architectural features such as exposed beams and brick, arched ceilings, skylights, and more.

High ceilings and varied floor heights add drama to the space, even in the kitchen. The bedroom isn't a standard-issue box.

Given this, the space does have some quirks: windows don't align where the normally do (see the bedroom above and the living room below), making for unusual sight lines and slightly tricky furniture placement. (The apartment, listed with the Corcoran Group and asking $1.55 million, has been on the market for a little over two months, per Streeteasy.)

Nonetheless, we're fans of the quirks. Why live in NYC and be just like everyone else?
