Listing of the Day
Location: Brooklyn Heights, New York
Price: $3.995 million
This duplex condo in a converted 1928 warehouse on the Brooklyn Heights waterfront offers 21-foot ceilings, a private terrace with unobstructed East River and Lower Manhattan views, and direct access to the new Brooklyn Bridge Park.
The 12-story, 435-unit building, One Brooklyn Bridge Park, was converted in 2007, with closings in 2007 and 2008, listing agent Michael Franco said.
“On the ground floor, they created a few townhouse-style apartments, and this is one of them,” he said. “You have all of the features of a newly renovated townhouse, but with all of the condo amenities.”
“There is an endless stream of amazing amenities in this building,” he added.
The owners, who bought the four-bedroom apartment when the condos were created, “have kept it in immaculate condition—they added some closets and a home office.”
The unit is on the first and second floors of the building, with the main entry and living spaces on the second floor.
This level holds the living room and terrace, the open-plan kitchen, a powder room, and a large bright bedroom with a loft space and en-suite bathroom.
The living room has a wood-burning fireplace, custom cabinetry and floor-to-ceiling windows. The kitchen features sleek custom Dada cabinets, an island, quartz countertops, a Bosch five-burner stovetop and double ovens, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, a Gaggenau wine cooler and a Bosch dishwasher.
The lower level holds the master suite, which has a large walk-through closet area that leads to the spa-like master bathroom with terrazzo tiles, a double sink and vanity, a deep soaking tub and a separate glass-enclosed shower.
This level also has the custom-built office, another bedroom with oversized windows and harbor views, and a large family room/media room that can be used as a guest room.
“There is an open staircase between the levels,” Mr. Franco said. “It gives it a beautiful architectural and open feel.”
The apartment has “amazing huge windows and a whole set of sliders” that open to the Manhattan-facing terrace, he said. “It’s pretty spectacular.”
Along with the 21-foot ceilings, other design features in the apartment include hardwood oak floors throughout, a washer/dryer, central air-conditioning, and abundant closet and storage space.
“The views are crazy,” Mr. Franco said. “You have the whole New York harbor and all of downtown.”
The 2,703-square-foot apartment has four bedrooms, three full bathrooms and one partial bathroom. There is also a 100-square-foot private waterfront terrace.
Abundant amenities include a 3,000-square-foot fitness center, a Peloton bike room, multiple cardio rooms, a billiards room, a children’s play and art room, a movie screening room, a music room with a baby grand piano, a yoga room, a dance studio, a virtual golf simulator, two conference rooms, and two landscaped courtyards.
The Furman Street building also features 24-hour doorman/concierge services, refrigerated storage, an on-site laundry/dry-cleaning service, multiple bike storage rooms and an on-site attended parking garage.
A parking spot is available for purchase, Mr. Franco said. “Historically, they have had a going rate of $150,000.”
One Brooklyn Bridge Park has 70,000 square feet of ground floor retail space with restaurants and coffee and wine shops.
The 85-acre Brooklyn Bridge Park features rolling hills, open plazas, lawns, wetlands, tidal pools and 40 acres of playgrounds.
“There is so much going on there,” Mr. Franco said. “They have tons of recreational space.”
