Description

Immediate Occupancy.

Offering private in-person showings and virtual tours of our fully completed building at 856 Washington. Please contact our sales team to schedule an appointment.

Presenting Penthouse 1: spanning the entire twelfth floor, this 3,172 square foot three bedroom, three and one half bath premier residence features keyed elevator access to a private corridor landing, a private 338 square foot terrace, and unparalleled views of the Manhattan skyline, The Brooklyn Museum, Prospect Park and beyond.

Designed for the most discerning buyer who requires perfection: oversized windows with over 10-foot loft ceilings and spacious bedrooms, each with en-suite bespoke baths. With a boutique collection of only 26 residences, 856 Washington offers exceptional living in prime Prospect Heights.

Upon arrival, this spectacular full floor residence offers two expansive wings. Living, dining and entertaining spaces face East to Manhattan; the entire wing offering breathtaking views of the Manhattan skyline and access to your private 338 sqft terrace.

Just past the family room and powder room, the penthouse is anchored by the chef's kitchen with striking walnut cabinetry, a fully integrated Gaggenau appliance package, and Pietra del Cardosastone countertops. Across the expansive island with storage underneath are the living and dining rooms, the gracious living spaces accented by a spectacular fireplace. Completing this wing is the laundry room equipped with an Electrolux washer & dryer with steam settings.

Back through the private corridor leads way to three generous bedrooms, each with their own en-suite bath.

The primary bedroom offers and airy retreat with direct access to the terrace with Manhattan skyline views and an enormous 11'x7' walk in closet. The primary bath boasts heated floors, a floating vanity of Bianco Bella marble and double Blanco satin polished sinks with Dornbracht faucets, and a wet room style dual-head steam shower with a third rain shower head and a floating soaking tub.

Secondary bathrooms offer either a soaking tub or walk-in shower with Grey Ara Greggio tiled walls, both with Cesar floating vanities and honed Carrara marble countertops and Blanco satin polished sinks with Dornbracht faucets.

856 Washington is filled with modern conveniences and amenities designed to enhance the experience of urban life. In the lobby, a re-imagined installation of vintage deposit boxes captures a piece of the building's historic past through artistic expression.

A well-appointed library salon with herringbone oak floors contains a curated selection of books. After some quiet contemplation, head downstairs where the residents' lounge offers space to host a dinner party or a private gathering with friends. A state-of-the-art fitness center and yoga room offer space for perfecting poses or peaceful introspection.

On-site bicycle parking lends itself to the Brooklyn lifestyle, and ancillary storage is also available for an additional fee. A third-floor courtyard and landscaped roof deck soaring 150 feet over Grand Army Plaza and Prospect Park provides a communal gathering space for neighbors to share conversation and take in the impressive views.
