This soaring industrial chic townhome was designed by the architect/owner to embrace Red Hook's rough-hewn history by incorporating repurposed salvaged beams, exposed brick, and structural steel. But built into the timeless design are all the comforts of modern living: radiator and forced air dual-fuel heating and air conditioning system, gigabit Fios, Bang and Olufsen speakers with Bluetooth, green roof, landscaped roof deck, solar power back-up, and deluxe resilient materials throughout. The versatile two family townhouse can function as a home, live/work space, art gallery, entertainment space, event venue, secluded getaway and garden oasis and it can do it all at...once. On the street level is the original 19th century storefront, an ideal gallery or professional office space, a studio apartment with full bath, "origami" kitchenette, storage and access to the deep, lush, landscaped garden. The double height living area on the second floor is a wonder of angles and architectural interest. There is an open kitchen, dining and living space with a massive exposed brick art-wall, a guest bedroom, den/media room, full bath and laundry. The main bedroom is on the third floor at the quiet rear of the house and features an open plan bath with a claw foot tub, pedestal sink, and water closet tucked behind a sliding door. There are two additional bedrooms, including one with French doors overlooking the main living space, and a second full bath. The top-floor home office is a coveted perch surrounded by windows, but the crowning glory of this house is the one-of-a-kind, two-tiered roof deck with unobstructed views of the Manhattan skyline, the Statue of Liberty, the Verrazano Bridge and everything in between. There is built-in seating and storage, a romantic pergola, grilling area, Ipe decking, built-in planters, green-roof area, and a tiled mudroom with a deep cast iron sink for easy post-party and gardening clean-up. It is a short stroll to the booming Brooklyn waterfront on Red Hook's most vibrant street. One look at this extraordinary property in Brooklyn's most dynamic neighborhoods and you will be Red-Hooked by this lofty have-it-all home.
