Now's your chance to own your very own Williamsburg loft—Murphy bed included

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

Ten-and-half foot ceilings and extra large windows mean that this $650,000 studio condo is more lofty, and less claustrophobic. The apartment, on the second floor of 242 South First Street, between Havemeyer and Roebling, has a balcony and high-end finishes. But it also has remnants from its past: Built in 1911 and once serving as a cheesecake factory, it still has wide plank maple flooring and original exposed concrete beamed ceilings.

Modern-day upgrades include a ceiling fan with LED lighting, a custom-made Murphy bed and closet system (pictured above), automatic blackout blinds, black granite kitchen countertops, and stainless appliances (including a dishwasher).

Also bringing the apartment into the 21st century: central air conditioning and heat, and a stackable washer and dryer.

It's asking approximately $140,000 less than the average price of comparable apartments sold in the neighborhood in the last 90 days. And since it's a condo, you can put just 10 percent down.
