If you need parking, outdoor space, and two bedrooms in the heart of Williamsburg (and have a hefty budget), this condo near McCarren Park could be for you. Listed for $1,575,000, 214 North 11th St., #6E spreads out over 1,246 square feet on two floors. 

The first level features a striking wall of oversized windows, an open living room/kitchen layout with space for a dining table, and custom cabinets along one wall. A small Juliet balcony is off the living room, and there are two closets here as well, one with a washer/dryer. 

The kitchen has a French-door refrigerator, a Bosch dishwasher, and custom cabinets of glass, lacquer and wood, as well as a Ceaserstone countertop.  

The master bedroom can fit a king-size bed, and also has a closet/storage space and a full bath with a soaking tub. It's on the main level as well. (We don't see either of the two bathrooms, though.)

The upper floor features a second room, which is referred to as a "flex bedroom," likely because the wall of windows that lets light in from the high-ceilinged, lower level doesn't open directly to the outside—something that is legally required for a room to be considered a bedroom. But it's big, and offers three additional closets. Off the not-quite bedroom is another room that can be used as an office or nursery.  There's also another full bathroom on this floor. 

An 11-by-13-foot terrace is accessed from the second level, and a tandem parking spot for two cars (see layout) also comes with the apartment. 

Maintenance is $1,107, and building amenities include a gym, a full-time doorman, a kid's playroom, a great room for events (or playing pool), bike storage, and a patio and roof deck. The building has a 421-a tax abatement through 2025. The apartment is in the heart of Williamsburg, and is surrounded by shopping, restaurants, and bars. The building is less than a block from McCarren Park, a few blocks from the L train at Bedford, and for when that line shuts down, close to the G at Metropolitan Ave.
