You can now sleep where rap royalty once did. While Hova didn’t reside in this exact $1.4 million two-bedroom condo duplex in Boerum Hill, he did live at the same address back in the day. He even gave a shout-out to 560 State Street in his song “Empire State of Mind,” calling it “my stash spot.”
In any event, this pad is pretty dope. The perfect combo of historic and modern, the expansive loft has huge windows and 10-foot high ceilings. The first floor blends old and new by featuring bright red kitchen cabinets and New York State-sourced slate countertops and windowsills. The shelving is made from reclaimed NYC water tower wood. Upstairs, the second level houses a large master suite, a second bedroom, a subway-tiled bath and the one amenity that tells the world you have truly made it: an in-unit washer and dryer.
The historic building is made up of 39 homes surrounding a 5,900-square-foot common courtyard that is perfect for grilling and chilling — it has an outdoor kitchen with two gas-fired barbecues and wooden benches.
Another big win is the apartment’s location: amidst four prime Brooklyn neighborhoods and right across the street from the Atlantic Avenue and its 11 subway lines and LIRR. It is also within walking distance of such Brooklyn mainstays as Barclay’s Center, BAM, Fort Green Park and the Atlantic Center Mall.
“Brooklyn We Go Hard” indeed. [Curbed]
