Presenting a one-of-a-kind, impeccably renovated designer Duplex Penthouse in DUMBO. With deeded parking included and perched on the top floor of a former warehouse that was thoughtfully converted to luxury condominiums in 2016 with the utmost attention to design and detail, this is Brooklyn's standout trophy condominium. The gorgeous European-style oasis at 51 Jay Street,featured in Architectural Digest and curated by top designer Michael Aiduss, reflects the discerning taste of the highest of standard.

Besides stunning and spacious interiors, the piece de resistance of exquisite Penthouse B are the views and fabulous terraces wrapping around both floors of the apartment for the ultimate outdoor pleasure and entertaining experience. The transformation of this exclusive 4 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom gem focused on creating a residence with a feel of integrity, crafting the spaces to make them seem more formal in their architectural organization while embracing modern elements including expansive walls of encasement glass framing the home. In keeping with the concept of alignment, a proper entryway was added, affording an elegant sense of passage, and more defined areas were conceived within the open plan layout, such as a sitting room with a custom alcove bar with wine fridge, gracious dining area, chef's kitchen and connected family room. In the vestibule, which was built out for a proper foyer and art gallery, hidden panels open to a coat closet, a shoe closet, and powder room with custom hand painted wallpaper.

Every detail throughout speaks of expert craftsmanship and fine materials, from the white oak herringbone floors to the white lacquer with glass trim pocket doors, brass fixtures, and traditional French moldings and archways. The gracious open concept great room enveloped by glass is perfect for hosting and offers double access points to the enormous 2,500 sq ft landscaped terrace designed by Gunn Landscape Architecture, with privacy hedges and limestone floor tiles, an outdoor kitchen, and an open area for views of the river and Brooklyn Bridge Park. The bespoke kitchen makes a striking statement, lacquered top to bottom in deep Aegean blue with bronze accents, Calacutta marble counters, island and backsplash, and premium appliances highlighted by a matte black La Canche oven from France. Thoughtful pantries have been integrated into the hallway panels for abundant storage.

The family room, just opposite, features a custom cabinet in the style of Jansen, concealing a TV that mechanically rises for viewing from the island bar. Proceeding down the hall to the primary quarters is a secondary bedroom which has been outfitted as a handsome office with beautiful built-ins, a black tile-clad full bath and a large closet. The serene private primary bedroom is framed in french moldings and has access to a private Zen outdoor terrace with lush hedging.

The custom mirrored dressing room off the main suite is a dream with custom lighting, while the luxurious luminous spa bath with white Venetian plaster walls and a Calacatta gold soaking tub and a vanity will leave you speechless. Ascend to the second floor of the house to a guest bedroom suite adorned in Miles Redd for Schumacher wallpaper with a beautiful en-suite Turkish white marble full bath. The enormous fourth bedroom spanning over 17 feet in length boasts a large starry night-themed room with custom bunk beds, a built-in desk/study area, and an en-suite bath.

Glass doors from each room lead out to the lovely upper terrace to the ultimate sunset views.
