Merchant House  139-Sackett Street Exterior rendering of Merchant House via Douglas Elliman
Like City Island and Breezy Point, Brooklyn's Columbia Waterfront District is one of the city's most timeless enclaves, where the pace of life is slower, the sky is bigger, and skyline views remind you that you are still in the country's premiere metropolis. In the middle of the maritime 'hood, near the corner of Sackett and Columbia Streets, three adjoining condo buildings are taking shape at 135-139 Sackett. Collectively called Merchant House, each building holds three full-floor homes with open layouts, large multi-pane windows, wood soffit ceilings and designer kitchens and baths.

Now the first listings have come online. One is a two-bedroom with an ask of $1.499M and the other is a three-bedroom priced at $2.249M. The latter unit is a duplex penthouse with a master bedroom perched on its own floor and fronted by two large private terraces on either side.
In tune with many new developments today, layouts are airy and contemporary but also provide copious amounts of storage/closet space. Kitchens have Pental Quartz Arabescato waterfall countertops, stainless steel Fisher and Paykel appliances and oil-rubbed bronze hardware. Bathrooms feature honed marble walls, oak and walnut vanities, wall sconces and deep soaking tubs.

Several restaurants are nearby in addition to Brooklyn Bridge Park and a new park planned along the neighborhood's pedestrian and bike greenway. The location's only drawback may be its lack of subway access, which is likely reason why the waterfront neighborhood maintains its remote ambiance. The Carroll Street subway station which serves the F and G lines is a 15 minute walk to the southwest. But on the bright side, trekkers will pass through some of the city's quaintest blocks, lined with brownstones and shaded by a canopy of mature trees. Additionally, the B61 bus, which has a stop around the corner, connects the neighborhood to Downtown Brooklyn, Cobble Hill, Red Hook, Gowanus, Park Slope and Prospect Park. The NYC Ferry can also be boarded several blocks north at Brooklyn Bridge Park's Pier 6.
