The penthouse at 161 12th Street is a truly special apartment filled with unique touches. It is a true 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom penthouse with a large private terrace boasting open sky views. This is not to be missed!
Enter the apartment through direct elevator access into a designer's dream of a kitchen and dining room experience. The stunning kitchen was crafted with custom Italian cabinetry by Rifra, Bosch appliances and a show stopping island. A thick marble slab for prep sits on top of an enormous, built-in, single slab, walnut dining table that is truly breathtaking. The table had to be built inside of the apartment because the slab was so generous. Sunny through two exposures -- and one of the kitchen windows even slides opens up to pass through food and beverages to the terrace. This is just one of the many thoughtful details that make this penthouse shine.
The living room is flooded with light and also offers two exposures through floor to ceiling windows and glass doors that lead to your private terrace; a true extension of an already considerable living space. This apartment was made for entertaining!
The sleeping quarters host three bright and sizeable bedrooms. The primary suite features double exposures with a stunning picture window that perfectly frames a Manhattan skyline view, and a spa-like master bathroom featuring with driftwood Grey marble paired with Bianco Dolomite marble, Watermark fixtures and a Duravit sink, tub and toilet. The second bedroom also features two exposures through enormous windows and features a view of the city. Nestled in between is lovely and bright, amply sized third bedroom. The second and third bedroom share a beautiful hallway full bathroom that also doubles as a powder room for guests.
The building features a beautifully designed and virtually attended lobby, (with mobile access) a lounge area with kitchenette, a common roof deck with BBQ, a package room and modern state of the art fitness room.
Gowanus is a vibrant neighborhood filled with art galleries, restaurants and performing arts. 161 12th Street is a boutique condominium that pays wonderful homage to its surround.
