Description

Your Home is more important than ever! A unique opportunity to own an award winning single family home on Red Hook’s best Block with south facing garden, stunning water and city views is here! The home is designed for entertaining - indoors and outdoors - with multiple porches, decks and roof gardens; the design references influences by architects and artists such as Jean Prouve, Eero Saarinen, Marcel Breuer, Dan Flavin and Donald Judd. The sculptural staircase that runs in the center of the building not just strike you at first site by its beauty, but it’s well thought placement allows a dynamic use of the two north and south wings on each floor of the house. One enters on the parlor floor into the dining area, a room showered by natural light through a monumental steel framed window; the room is connected by a bridge to the spacious fun kitchen which besides being practical and efficient also offers you a fantastic view of the bamboo and ivy extravaganza garden that awaits for your evenings with friends and family in summer gatherings. On the floor below – the garden level – the front space serves as a guest bedroom equipped with private shower an independent powder room followed by the breath taking living space - a sunken room featuring 12’ tall ceilings, wood burning fireplace and the iconic Beverly Hills Martinique Banana Leaf wall paper; all meticulously placed with elegance to give you a sense of calm and ease - retreat in your own home. On the second floor the front wing is planned as an office with an oversized delightful skylight giving you the chance to stay in work mode for hours without noticing it. The playful row of windows from wall to wall access a flow of air and light to nurture you all day long. If this is not enough don’t worry, you can walk right across the staircase to the south wing to rest in the marvelous master bedroom suite with powder room and a private shower featuring an unexpected sleek sunken bathtub where you can relax overlooking the water... The staircase takes you to a splendid, meditation bulkhead which leads to the two mesmerizing roof decks; one facing the unique and miraculous view of Manhattan's Downtown - picture perfect; the second one facing the water along the Verrazano Bridge and stunning sunsets. The building was reimagined to flood each floor with natural light; the south facing façade has large openings which are lined with deep steel frames and oak doors. The house features industrial materials rarely found in residential projects, making your home a unique and practical experience not only to live in but that will make you feel proud to own the perfect modern home in Brooklyn. Featured Materials: concrete, corten steel, slate, plank grating, oak, pine, field stone and brick.
