Description

Welcome to one of the hidden gems of New York City, an awe-inspiring home that is as impressive as it is livable. With six bedrooms and five bathrooms, this single-family property, featuring exquisite modern design, multiple outdoor spaces, a swimming pool, a hot tub, and a private garage, sits in the heart of Red Hook, a short 15-minute drive from downtown Manhattan. Powered by solar energy and spanning 6,000-square-feet across three levels, this magazine-worthy showplace offers an ideal indoor-outdoor layout for restful relaxation or lavish entertaining. The vast great room makes a dramatic first impression with 24-foot-tall ceilings, skylights and linear gas fireplace. Poured concrete and wide-plank hardwood walnut floors sit beneath the soaring ceilings, while swaths of glass, walnut trim and blackened steel details add a chic mixed-materials design. 15-foot sliding glass doors that span up to 60-feet when fully open, lead to an outdoor oasis. Here, a 40-foot lap pool and spa are flanked by lush landscaping, an outdoor shower, and a spacious deck. The open gourmet kitchen, anchored by a 15-foot-long island, has not only the intimacy for a four-person meal but the capability to manage a forty-person event. A walk-in pantry and wine cellar contain vast storage space, while a fleet of upscale appliances by Sub-Zero and Wolf makes cooking and clean-up effortless. A wall of sleek entry closets and a large study with built-in floating shelves, walnut ceilings, and beautiful pool views complete the level. Translucent mesh screens line the floating staircase and hallway to the second level, where a mezzanine overlooking the great room doubles as a home theater. Two bedrooms with floor-to-ceiling windows open to a sitting room/playroom and share a large full bathroom with a double vanity. A third bedroom boasts an en-suite bathroom and access to a balcony that connects to the theater mezzanine. A full laundry room completes this multi-functional floor. The flexible top level is ready to suit your needs as a full-floor primary suite or an additional penthouse entertaining space. A sun-splashed sitting room opens entirely to an expansive Brazilian wood roof deck featuring a vegetable garden, outdoor kitchen, and dining area. Enjoy alfresco entertaining with extraordinary views stretching across Red Hook Channel and New York Harbor to the Statue of Liberty and Brooklyn Bridge. Massive travertine marble slabs pave the primary bedroom, where you'll find another large deck, an oversized custom walk-in closet, and a sprawling en suite bathroom equipped with a walk-in steam shower, a freestanding black resin bathtub, and a double vanity. A separate entrance for the office and inlaw suite offer ultimate flexibility, while a garage completes this unrivaled modern masterpiece. In this unbeatable Red Hook location, you're surrounded by fantastic shopping, dining, and waterfront outdoor space. Step outside to enjoy The Red Hook Tavern, Hometown Bar-B-Que, Brooklyn Crab, The Red Hook Winery, Keg & Lantern Brewery and Ample Hills Creamery. Spend the day enjoying Red Hook Park's and waterfronts, nearly 60 acres of outdoor space, Olympic-size pool, running track, sports courts and fields, and recreation center. Transportation options abound with excellent bus service, CitiBike stations, the Red Hook Ferry Terminal, F and G trains, and the Gowanus Expressway all nearby.
