This former Ink & Brush factory located at 459 Carroll Street is a living incarnation of turning an industrial building into a cutting-edge functional home. Apartment #1 on the lower two floors has been crafted into an approximately 3,300-square-foot multi-level modernist home, a true townhouse alternative. The voluminous 2,220-square-foot living floor is accentuated by 13-foot high ceilings, six skylights and a sculptural metal and wood staircase; this floor also contains a gallery/office/guest suite space. The upper level contains three bedrooms and is also the egress to a remarkable 900-square-foot private outdoor space. The approximately 1,200-square-foot cellar area (not included in the square footage) has 10-foot ceilings and is currently an artist studio. This area is a perfect fit for home gym, media room, wine cellar or all three. Gowanus is the home to Whole Foods, extremely good transportation, many new restaurants, retail expansion and commercial development. Additionally, there are 1,000 new residential units that will be completed by 2016. Please note: the common charges for this home are yet to be determined.
