For the first time in ten years, a full-floor penthouse at Ft. Greene/Boerum Hill's iconic One Hanson Place is available for sale.
This spectacularly-renovated home, featured in the December 2021 edition of Architectural Digest, is the result of the collaboration between Jaklitsch/Gardner Architects and the sellers. The result: a three-bedroom (converted from four), 3.5 bath, masterwork, just below the four-sided clock topping the landmark former Williamsburgh Savings Bank Tower. At 3306 Square feet, the penthouse is larger than many townhouses minus the stairs, the wasted space used to accommodate the stairways and foyer, or the regular need for infrastructural repairs. Just lock and leave, confident that your home is safe and secure while you're gone.
Over 1300 square feet of open entertainment space is framed by 20 six-foot windows facing north to Midtown and west to the NY Harbor and Statue of Liberty. The bedrooms are located through a steel and glass-paned door, and down a corridor lined with custom Venetian plaster walls. Ebony-stained oak flooring below and 10.5-foot ceilings above.
PH30 is one of the building's Tower Residences, accessible via an elevator landing outside your front door. It offers 360-degree open, panoramic views of every borough up the East River past Midtown to Queens and a bit of the Bronx, over Brooklyn's historic districts to the NY Harbor, and the Verazzano Bridge to Staten Island -- all through miles of open sky in every direction.
One Hanson Place rises at the nexus of five of Brooklyn's most popular neighborhoods with easy access to the unique amenities in each of them: (Ft. Greene; Boerum Hill; Park Slope; Downtown Brooklyn and Prospect Heights). The entrance to the Atlantic Barclays Terminal, the third-largest transportation hub in NYC, is outside the front door. From there, nine local and express subways provide easy access to almost every neighborhood in the City. The LIRR station in the terminal provides rail transportation to JFK and points east.
The building is surrounded by a variety of supermarkets, retail and restaurants, friendly cafes and lounges, and some of the best cultural venues in NY. The Brooklyn Academy of Music is next door, Barclays Center is a block away, Whole Foods and Apple are across the street, and Ft. Greene Park, with its tennis courts, hiking trails, and dog run, is two blocks away.
This is arguably the most convenient location in Brooklyn.
The southwest-facing corner primary bedroom has been combined with an adjacent bedroom through curved, telescoping, Paldao wood panels to create privacy for a den or media room when desired. The wall may easily be replaced with a solid wall to recreate a more traditional fourth bedroom. There are several large closets in the home with custom built-in storage areas. A sunny, pin-drop quiet, en suite bedroom, au pair room, or office is located down a short hallway with endless views over Brownstone Brooklyn. There is a separate entrance to this wing from the elevator landing.
PH30 is filled with gorgeous, custom furniture and finishes, designed to create a sense of continuity and simple elegance. Much of the furnishings may be purchased as part of a broader sale if desired.
