8 Old Fulton Street, #5N

Between Furman Street & Water Street   |    Brooklyn Heights

Trophy Waterfront Penthouse Loft with Terrace

Penthouse North, at 8 Old Fulton Street, represents a once in a generation opportunity to acquire the most desired unit, in one of the most historic residential properties in prime waterfront Brooklyn.

This stunning duplex penthouse loft rises above Brooklyn Bridge Park, perched on the waterfront overlooking New York City, standing tall as a gleaming example of luxury and privilege. With a commanding, and indelible presence, this mecca of style and sophistication spans 2,869 SF, and boasts a spectacular, and private 400 SF roof terrace with panoramic water and city views. With two bedrooms, plus den (convertible three bedrooms plus den), and three full baths, you’ll have plenty of room to grow.

16 ft soaring ceilings are flooded with light from 11 windows on a prime corner, perfectly positioned to take advantage of the extraordinary views. This one-of-kind property boasts the most incredible, unencumbered, panoramic waterfront views of the New York harbor, and the Manhattan skyline. This residence has been carefully renovated with exquisite attention to detail, using the finest, and most premium fixtures, and finishes.

This Penthouse Loft soars on two levels, and is ideal for both living and entertaining. You’ll be enamored by the generous, open floorpan. On the first floor, you’ll find an updated chefs kichen with separate dining area for up to 10 guests, a full bath, and laundry room.

Original features such as cast iron columns, and exposed brick are complimented with modern touches such as premium stainless steel appliances, and a floating staircase that defines its architectural significance.

Upstairs, you will find two additional bedrooms with skylights, each with their own ensuite bathrooms. The master bedroom is the pièce de résistance, and features two walk in closets, and an oversized master bath with soaking tub, and a separate steam shower.

To top it all off, the private roof terrace provides the perfect setting to unwind and take in the spectacular views from the Statue of Liberty, to the iconic downtown skyscrapers, and the Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Williamsburg Bridges, and beyond.

Top of the line amenities include: Canadian maple parquet floors, 2-zone central cooling, elevator, and a fireplace, with bicycle and basement storage included in the sale.

Situated above the magnificent new Brooklyn Bridge Park, and steps from the NYC Ferry, 8 Old Fulton Street is a five-story, landmarked, 1861 Pre-Civil War cast iron and brick building that was formerly the Brooklyn City Railroad Company.

Located at the intersection of DUMBO, and Brooklyn Heights, the property was converted to a residential cooperative in the 1970s, and is known for it’s famous red door. With only 10 units, an elevator, storage, and very low monthlies, Penthouse North at 8 Old Fulton Street is literally a dream come true.
