Ingeniously crafted from 21 shipping containers, this truly exceptional home is a paragon of architectural design and contemporary style in a spectacular Williamsburg location.
Spanning 5,000 square feet, with three magnificent terraces, this iconic Brooklyn showplace is an entertainer's haven that delivers seamless indoor-outdoor living on every floor. Designed by the esteemed LOT-EK, industrial chic décor nods to the area's hip artistic vibe, while exquisite finishes and premium appliances create an effortless quality of life. Floor-to-ceiling windows to the north and south flood interiors with light and charming neighborhood views, but the ambiance here both indoors and out is one of utter privacy and tranquility.
The open first level invites lively entertaining with a great flow for guests. The large living area is anchored by New York City's last permitted wood-burning fireplace, while the incredible media room rivals any theater with its fantastic stadium seating, a suspended 90-inch Samsung television and surround sound. Chefs will adore the stunning open kitchen which embraces both form and function with exception details like the Grohe Blue faucet with chilled filtered water and sparkling water; the Capital dual-oven, six-burner range with a grill and griddle; and the built-in Miele deep fryer. There's plenty of room for a long dining table, but the spacious terrace just outside makes al fresco dining irresistible.
Ascend the floating steel stair to take in the airy second floor filled with bright bedrooms and sleek modern baths. Flexible open spaces here are flanked by another sunny terrace and provide an ideal footprint for a den, home office, playroom, family room or whatever needs require. On the top floor, discover a decadent master suite oasis with its own private terrace, a massive soaking tub, Epson projection television and twin powder rooms that lead to an enviable 22-foot-wide, boutique-inspired walk-in closet.
The basement level features another private bedroom suite, plenty of storage, and a bonus room ideal as a musician's jam space. A temperature-controlled, 2,000-bottle wine room and off-street parking secure this home's position as a captivating destination for those with an appreciation for the finer things in life.
Perfectly positioned where Williamsburg meets Greenpoint, this fantastic location is surrounded by Brooklyn's innovative arts scene and spectacular live music. Catch a show at nearby Brooklyn Steel or Warsaw, and explore the many local cocktail bars and buzzy destination restaurants. Gorgeous McCarren Park is just minutes away, and G and L trains put the rest of the city within easy reach.
