What features would your most perfect apartment have?
Panoramic Harbor & NYC views? Check. Open plan living/dining/kitchen? Check. 3,000 square feet or more? Check. Owned parking spot in the building? Check. Full service doormen, porters, concierge and handymen? Check. Soaring ceilings? Check. State-of-the art fitness center? Check.
Those features, so rarely available in one apartment, are only the beginning. One Brooklyn Bridge, directly on New York Harbor, is a well-established condominium with a reputation for lavish apartments and superior service. Retrofitted in 2008 in an old printing plant, the building has 12.5 foot ceilings and huge windows. Apt 1024, which is a smart combination of 2 units, is situated in the most desirable corner of the building. Its 35 windows have sweeping views of the harbor, our Lady of Liberty, the Manhattan skyline, the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges, and the newly rising downtown Brooklyn skyline. Best of all, these views are protected from future development.
The living/dining/music room face due west and the 40 foot wall of windows afford an ever-changing view of the sun setting over the water and behind the lower Manhattan skyline. They sit on a raised floor to enhance the view. The kitchen also enjoys the vista. There are custom walnut bookshelves, marble sills, and a built-in wet bar, also of walnut and custom electronic window shades throughout the apartment.
The master suite has another huge wall of windows facing the bridges. Here also is a wall of built-in closets. The master bath has double sinks, a huge soaking tub and a walk-in shower.
A guest room affords the same view of sparkling bridges. There is a full bath across the hall.
Facing east is the 3rd large bedroom with a walk-in closet and an en suite bath.
One of most desirable aspects of 1024s design is the corner of the apartment facing north and east. There is a huge den/media/family room with floor to ceiling windows. Here one will find a luxurious spot for TV watching, an eco smart fireplace and views to the north of NYCs loveliest bridges. In addition, there is a beautifully designed room which serves as an office with multiple workstations and lined with sofas that are twin sized beds. Custom folding doors can enclose this space and turn it into a full 4th bedroom. The current owners purchased 2 apartments, which the sponsor combined into one, including some hall space resulting in a spacious foyer.
The foyer has two double closets and a powder room. In addition, there are 2 large storage units on the same floor which belong to 1024.
Throughout the apartment, which was re-designed by a noted Brooklyn architect, attention was carefully paid to seamlessly adding storage and ensuring that the 3,300 square feet provide all the amenities of a private house. Combined with the dizzying array of building amenities (full gym, yoga room, screening room, game room and more), ones own self-parking space, and the stellar building staff, there is no better place to live.
