Creative Space in Brooklyn's Columbia Waterfront

By

After losing his mother to an aggressive form of cancer, Brooklyn songwriter-turned-woodworker Ian Love redesigned his apartment as a sort of love letter to her life. The 664 square foot one bedroom feels much larger thanks to the clean aesthetic and handmade furnishings that now define the space. Love's mother originally bought and intended to renovate the apartment, which sits in the coveted Columbia Waterfront neighborhood in Brooklyn. The home has hardwood floors throughout, abundant natural light, a chic kitchen perfect for home cooks, washer/dryer in-house, and clean modern lines for contemporary living. Residents enjoy the benefits of nearby Brooklyn Bridge Park, Red Hook, and Cobble Hill. 54 President sits in the middle of its (cherry) tree lined block and is neighbor to the Urban Meadow Community Garden, a members only volunteer greenspace. The apartment is available for $735,000 through Brooke Joslyn of Stribling & Associates.
