This former factory located at 459 Carroll Street is a perfect example of turning an industrial building into a cutting-edge functional home. Apartment #1 on the lower two floors has been transformed into an approximately 3,300-square-foot, multi-level modernist home. The 2,220-square-foot living floor is accentuated by 13-foot high ceilings, six skylights and a sculptural metal and wood staircase. The upper level contains two bedrooms and access to a remarkable 900-square-foot private outdoor space with views of lower Manhattan. Gowanus is home to Whole Foods, extremely good transportation and many new restaurants. The apartment can come furnished and is only shown by appointment.
