Penthouse 3 in Williamsburgs ultra-luxe condo building The Oosten is a custom-crafted home of 5,100 interior square feet with an additional 1,500sf of private outdoor space, all with direct elevator access to a private garage. Designed by Elizabeth Lawrence of Bunny Williams Interiors, the original six-bedroom, six and a half bath layout has been customized into a gracious three-bedroom with a separate home office (or fourth bedroom) and media room (or fifth bedroom). Every inch of this space has been redesigned to create a light-filled, sprawling home across its two levels. Arriving by semi-private elevator, the lower level opens to a grand entrance gallery featuring custom honed limestone. Hand-made glass and bronze doors define various spaces off the gallery a lounge featuring a custom wet bar flows into the 28-foot-wide formal living room. Here, two elegant seating areas and a limestone fireplace are framed by the floor to ceiling windows looking out over The Oostens 14,000sf landscaped courtyard. Bronze and glass pocket doors lead to the adjacent study and full bath. Across the gallery, the truly luxurious master suite features two en-suite bathrooms, a massive custom-built walk in closet, and additional dressing area. Two additional bedrooms on this floor each are complete with en-suite baths. This level also features a large laundry room with vented dryer and custom storage.
A wide windowed stairwell leads up to the 8th floor where the Penthouses kitchen, additional living room, dining room, and media room are located. This floor, wrapped in floor-to-ceiling glass, is flanked by two spectacular outdoor spaces: a south-facing terrace with mature trees offering complete privacy, outdoor living room, sunbathing, and a hot tub. The north terrace off the kitchen is the perfect spot for outdoor dining and features iconic skyline and bridge views. The immense open kitchen has been completely re-imagined and is an entertainers dream, with a huge center island of St Laurent black marble, a Smeg Opera vented professional range, double ovens, two dishwashers, extra-large Viking refrigerator and freezer, and two 50-bottle wine refrigerators. Another set of bronze and glass doors opens to the formal dining room, featuring floor to ceiling glass walls facing the terrace. The media room with lacquered custom built-ins also has direct access to the north terrace.
