Want to live in a Frank Furness designed carriage house from the late-1800s? The listing describes it as a 'rare opportunity, which is absolutely true. Forget the fact that it's a shade under $1 million, how many times in your life do you have a chance to own a uniquely designed, two bedroom loft that looks like an awesome old man with a legit mustache? Positioned mid-block on Irving Street between 13th and Juniper Street, this house can really be made into whatever you'd like. It's zoned CMX-5 — that's big time commercial mixed-use, like soon-to-be nearby SLS International type zoning. So, if it's another floor you need, by all means, build upward! As for its currently positioned, the hardwood floors, painted brick and exposed beams ooze charm and the open floor plan gives you plenty of options to make it your own. But let's not get it twisted, it's the exterior and its location of this house that are the big time selling points. It's a block from the subway and a few steps from the shops and serious eats on 13th Street. This one is a true winner in our book.
