Property listings describe this condo as “Old Brooklyn meets New Brooklyn” but with 1,353-square feet of space in a 24-hour doorman building, there are certainly more modern amenities; however the aesthetic of the condo is “old charm” since it is in the building of the former Williamsburg Bank. Located next to BAM, this historic condo features oversized windows, a chef’s kitchen with Viking appliances, washer and dryer and a 500-square-foot master suite with a walk-in closet. The new family that grabs this luxury condo will also have access to the building’s resident lounge, a children’s play room, private storage and gym with a terrace. Although much as changed at One Hanson place, living in this “Byzantine Romanesque facade that includes a four-sided clock tower with gilded dome and vast banking hall” is definitely not typical – even for Brooklyn.
