This Brooklyn Heights studio comes with the next best thing to more space: A storage unit

Nearly $600,000 is a pretty steep price to pay for what is essentially one room, even in ever-charming Brooklyn Heights. But with a clever layout, a separate and decently sized kitchen, and a separate private storage unit included in the purchase, this $599,000 studio at 75 Livingston St. might just be worth it.

Eight-foot ceilings, bright white walls, and a pair of oversized windows give the living space an airy, open feel. The windows are quadruple-paned, meaning that they will hopefully cancel out a good portion of the blaring city noises that would otherwise seep in from just outside this second-floor unit. There are also light oak floors that look relatively new and a mix of recessed lights and pendant lights illuminating the room.

As it’s currently configured, there’s space for both a seating area with a couch and a coffee table and a dining area with a table and some chairs. A custom half-wall of built-in shelving separates the sleeping area from the rest of the living space.

The galley kitchen—which, like the rest of the unit, was renovated in 2014—is bright and clean and has lots of cabinet space. There are also Caesarstone countertops, under-cabinet lighting, a wine cooler, and a tiled backsplash in an attractive royal blue.  

The subway tiled bathroom is all white and looks pristine—but has a pedestal sink and doesn’t appear to offer a lot in the way of storage space.

The full-service co-op building is pet-friendly, and has a 24-hour doorman, a recently renovated lobby, and laundry on every floor. Maintenance is $963 a month.
