Featured in the New York Times. A one of a kind, true loft at Esquire Building spares no details with a designer renovation. The Esquire Building was the former Esquire Shoe Polish Company, one of the very few prewar conversions in Williamsburg. This ultra cool 2 level home features 18 ft. double height ceilings and double height windows. There are original exposed brick, wood beamed ceilings, poured concrete and natural oak floors throughout. The wall of windows face east and provide glowing light all day long. The space is magnificent!
In true loft living style, there is a great open living and dining room perfect for entertaining and gourmet cooking. The designer Italian kitchen is from GD Cucine’s Legno Vivo collection, made of sustainable natural solid oak, with Grigio Carnico grey marble counter tops. This kitchen is complete with high end appliances, Bosch 5 burner gas range and oven, Miele dishwasher and a Blonberg fridge. There is also a white tiled powder room on this floor for extra convenience.
The brand new upper level features 9.5” wide natural oak floors. The mezzanine master bedroom is extra large with a stunning en suite bathroom. This bright bathroom is designed with handmade Moroccan tiles by Martyn Lawrence Bullard and features a 66” cast iron claw foot tub complete with a freestanding british telephone faucet and a hand shower. There is also a separate shower stall with a thermostatic Strom shower head. In this upper level, there is an additional room that can be used as an office or closed off to create 2nd bedroom.
If that was not enough, there are many options to customize additional spaces that will only increase the investment value. The monthly expenses are very low and includes a J-51 tax abatement in place. Central heat and A/C is in place and washer and dryer is inside the apartment. The building features a rooftop terrace, laundry room, composting center, free cable and high speed internet and video intercom entry.
The location is in prime Wiliamsburg with notable cafes, restaurants while Whole Foods and Apple are to open in 2016. Great for primary home living or an excellent investment opportunity.
