Announcing 50 Hicks, a stunningly appointed 1-family townhome offering a home life of comfort and understated grandeur. The generous living environment is comprised of five separate levels, each with its own unique purpose, inviting design, and special features.
Starting with the building's lasting masonry facade of rich, timelessly red brick and oversized windows -- and ornate original "storefront style" bay window -- evoke the location's enduring and historic luxury, but decidedly constructed with the future in mind.
Rybak Development has advanced the concept of a gut renovation, erecting a brand new structure within the building's elite landmarked exterior. Stripped down on the interior to the parting walls and rebuilt using today's most enduring construction materials and practices, the brand new all-concrete reinforced superstructure provides the home with superior structural stability, unrivaled longevity, and premium sound attenuation qualities, unmatched among townhouse renovations -- all while optimizing interior flexibility to suit any family's living style and layout preferences.
The use of concrete has enabled taller ceilings in each of the stories. To access the entire living space, the developers have upgraded to an oversized commercial grade double sliding-door elevator, instead of the typical hinged door style elevator, relying on an antiquated accordion-style inner door. This upgrade is a rarity among even the most luxurious private residences. 50 Hicks' accessibility is further enhanced by its second entrance, modifiable to be fully handicap accessible from the sidewalk to enjoy all of the luxury home.
The 50 Hicks kitchen spans the home's full width, centered around an appliance integrated oversized marble island, and adorned with none other than a Viking Tuscany Range. Combining classic Italian styling with Viking's award winning top-of-the-line performance, it's no exaggeration to say that The Viking Tuscany range is the pinnacle of culinary expression. The developers have furnished the luxury home with a full chef's kitchen. Here, one can host a family breakfast or cocktail party with equal ease and elegance. Refrigeration is furnished by Sub Zero, a pioneer of the art and science of food preservation. Italian-made Scavolini cabinetry line the walls above marble countertops, opposite wall-to-wall windows extending out to your home's outdoor recreation and entertainment area.
The standout third floor is the spacious master suite, to which the home's entire width and floor is dedicated. The master suite is appointed with ensuite bathroom, a double sided closet/dressing room, and walk-in closet. Security is essential in the preservation of value, history, and even one's family. That's why the builders have upgraded the master suite into a state of-the-art safe room with ballistically raided walls and a blast/ballistic resistant bedroom entry door ensuring an unparalleled level of home security and peace of mind.
The master bath features Waterworks fixtures, a custom vanity, oversized shower and imported Italian marble slabs throughout, an exclusive freestanding tub, and the best-in-class Toto Neorest 700H toilet. The master bathroom comes fitted with a private sauna. The cedar-wood-lined, glass partitioned, separate sauna room is accessible from the shower and enhanced with LED lighting and music integration, upgrading your home with a true spa feature.
The fully accessible, inviting rooftop offers dramatic views of the New York City skyline, a special place to customize and enjoy. To maximize roof space a three wall Skybox was incorporated and offers an almost seamless integration into the fabric of the home. Operated at the touch of a button, the user simply climbs the stairs whilst the Skybox is retracting into its open position and then walks straight out onto the deck.
Known as one of the world's most desirable residential enclaves, Brooklyn Heights delivers unparalleled convenience and quality of life. As New York City's first historic district, each block is filled by astounding old-world architecture. Sprawling Brooklyn Bridge Park offers acres of recreation and waterfront outdoor space, and the nearby blocks are dotted by fantastic nightlife, dining and shopping. Immediate proximity to major thoroughfares, subway lines and ferries provides easy access to the rest of the city and beyond.
