Description

The elusive oversized FOUR-bedroom, 4.5 bathroom masterpiece is finally available for you to call home. Situated in The Standish, Brooklyn Heights’ most coveted new elevator and doorman condominium, with only 28 units in a converted pre-war hotel that combines the best of old-war charms and modern luxury comforts and design. It offers two elevators, and only two units per floor for a feeling of autonomy, security and privacy. Unit 5A is the first re-sale opportunity for a buyer looking for the space and quiet afforded by a large single floor home, combined with the scale and drama of a loft, and the security and ease of full-service boutique condo living.

As the first resale, the home has been lovingly curated throughout with a suite of designer lighting and wallpaper, customized closets, a living wall, and spectacular window treatments already in place for you to enjoy. Located on the most beautiful block in Brooklyn, this awe-inspiring home offers four exposures, dramatic ceiling heights throughout, and incredible oversized windows. Offering four bedrooms, all of which have ensuite baths, a designer powder room, a fully outfitted laundry room, a chef’s kitchen with water and Manhattan views, a dramatic bay-windowed dining area, and a formal and a casual living room, all on one floor. Free yourself from stairs and enjoy the benefits of loft living including a truly spectacular corner windowed great room of unprecedented scale and dimension.

Dramatic columns, coffered ceilings, 7.5” Austrian white-oak floors, crown moldings, floor-to-ceilings windows and rich materials including aged brass and lush marbles, all make this the perfect fusion of old and new. A multi-windowed chef’s kitchen is the heart of this home and opens to a dramatic dining area and the double-sized living room. Featuring Italian Carrara countertops, premium Bertazzoni and Bosch appliances, a large pantry, and a suite of stunning and clean custom white modern cabinetry that melds perfectly with the classic yet contemporary decor.

Current owners have also added open shelving, a wine-fridge, under counter microwave and pull-out garbage to add to the functionality. The lavishness of four bedrooms each with its own bathroom is unrivaled in Brooklyn Heights, and includes oversized rain showerheads, natural brass Fantini fixtures, and a luxurious combination of travertine and mosaic tilework throughout. A master suite offers two customized walk-in closets, amazing light, and a five-fixture windowed master bathroom that includes full Silver Travertine slabs on the walls and floors, a large glass-enclosed shower, and a dramatic freestanding tub with a view. All four bedrooms are well-sized, including a bedroom currently configured as an office/playroom with custom millwork already in place that offers a spacious desk area and excellent storage.

The apartment has multi-zoned climate control throughout with additional custom features added by the current owner include stunning lighting by Arteriors, France and Son, and Flos to name a few. The Standish offers 24/7 doorman & concierge services, a fitness studio, a playroom, and an unrivaled landscaped rooftop terrace with harbor views. Neighborhood amenities include public and private schools, in addition to the world-famous Promenade with its glorious views, Brooklyn Bridge Park, and an array of world-class dining, shopping, and amenities. Conveniently located to every subway line a few blocks away at Borough Hall and include the 2/3/4/5/R/F/A/C.
