The fully renovated Williamsburg townhouse compound WITH PRIVATE INDOOR PARKING that you have been waiting for is finally on the market. Behind a striking zinc and steel faade awaits approx. 5000 SF of living and work space, with a rare zoning that allows you to use the entire building as a single family home OR rent out the street level, mezzanine and basement to a commercial tenant, OR better yet, live upstairs in 3600 SF on the top three floors and use the street level and basement as an art studio, gallery, gym or office space.

Whatever your needs, this building suits them all and is a rare gem that will allow maximum flexibility in a world where working from home has become the norm, and keeping your entire life under one roof makes living easy and safe. This contemporary transformation of a Williamsburg mixed-use property is gorgeous in pictures and awe-inspiring in real life. Having undergone a ground-up custom build-out about a decade ago by Brooklyn-based Standard Architects, the current owners recently took the building to a whole new level with the help of award-winning JAM architects.

An update of both the commercial space and cellar, in addition to all three outdoor spaces, has transformed this already light-filled home into a building where every floor is flooded with light, and transitions easily between home and work, indoors and out, so that you can enjoy whatever task you need to do surrounded by views and great design.Drive your car into a large garage and store your Vespa, bikes and tools. Formerly rented to a creative agency and gallery, the ground floor commercial space and basement are now used by the current owners as an art studio, gym and home office. Unrivaled 17.5 ceilings have allowed the creation of a glass enclosed mezzanine that offers a sunny office overlooking the massive studio space and street.

Oversized blackened-steel casement windows and skylights have been installed throughout the studio/commercial space bringing in natural light all day. The designer basement accommodates a sizable home gym, in addition to a conference room, a Zoom Room, a kitchenette, a powder room, and two HUGE storage rooms. Industrial cool resin floors add a special touch.

The studio/commercial space on both levels is of such high quality that it blends seamlessly with the upstairs residential portion and is easily incorporated back in as an incredible media room/home office/music room.Head up the sky-lit sculptural steel and wood staircase to a double height great room of grand proportions with 17 high ceilings and an equally large window that spans from floor-to-ceiling, this room is luminous and an incredible space for your art collection. It also accommodates a loft-like living room, a powder room, AND a separate space for a large dining area that flows effortlessly into a fully landscaped terrace. The chefs kitchen offers a window to the natural world through an oversized wall of glass that also opens up to your private irrigated and fully landscaped terrace, complete with the full ingredients of a kitchen garden, in addition to perennials and trees and shrubs ensconced in custom Ipe planters.

Dont miss the vintage stainless steel and glass cabinets, a fully-vented restaurant quality range with double oven, six burners, and grill, in addition to loads of counter space. A mezzanine over the living room accommodates a meditation room/library with custom built-in shelving. The next floor up offers two sizable bedrooms and a full bath, with the front-facing room now high enough to glimpse the Manhattan skyline.

There is even a large laundry room with fully vented washer and dryer and loads of storage. The top floor has been masterfully transformed into a master suite of epic views, light and space, and offers a walk-in closet, and a large terrace complete with a cedar Japanese soaking tub, Ipe deck and space for lounging under the stars. For the cherry on top, head upstairs to the finished roofdeck on top of the master bedroom and gape at the 360 degree skyline views that include the East River, the Freedom Tower, and the Empire State Building, from under a pergola.

There is no townhouse anywhere that offers such unlimited and awe-inspiring views.Located at the crossroads of Grand and Berry Streets, this home is situated in the most central, yet quiet spot in the neighborhood, close to Domino Park and convenient to every amenity for which the neighborhood has become so beloved, including bars, restaurants, shopping, transportation, and schools. Enjoy a fully automated and smart-phone controlled virtual doorman system for package delivery, Latch App keyless entry system, fiber optics wired throughout, five-zone heating and cooling, fantastic storage, and of course, wi-fi garage control. Enjoy every amenity that you would find in a condo but with no common charges and the super low heating and cooling bills that come with purchasing an impeccably-designed modern home.
