The Upper Penthouse and Full Private Rooftop at 524 Manhattan Avenue has been reimagined into a one of a kind, work-of-art residence by architect David Bucovy with unmatched private amenities facing McCarren Park, Williamsburg. A keyed elevator floats you up to this airy perch where you are greeted by a triple story living room with fireplace, and protected helicopter-like views of New York City. As it's the only residence on this floor, it features quadruple-exposures with 360-degree views, triple terraces (in addition to the private rooftop) and dual primary bedrooms. Enjoy surround sound and an outdoor kitchen from fully landscaped ipe roof deck. Soak in full skyline, river and park views from the roof terrace's custom cedar hot tub or under the heated cabana. Private parking onsite is available for one and potentially a second spot.
The triple height ceiling great room is fit out with standard and multicolor lighting systems, a fireplace and opens up to the windowed eat-in-kitchen. The exposed blackened iron beams give a tasteful architectural nod to Williamsburg's industrial past. This south-west facing, voluminous space features floor-to-ceiling glass that brings the outdoors in, with beautiful all-day light. Start your NYC night with daily front row tickets to one of the best sunsets available in town, this living room. You can feel the excitement of the New York City night come alive, but yet, it's perfectly peaceful and quiet at the same time. The moment you enter the space, one is overcome feelings of energizing inspiration. You get the feeling that anything is possible. A great place to write a song and the Steinway is there to assist you.
There are dual primary bedrooms, one on the 1st floor, off of the great room, another on the 2nd floor, each having their own terrace. When it is time to go to bed and turn off the city, automatic blinds will do this with a push of a button (including the triple height curtain in the main salon). The brand-new HVAC system features smart home technologies and allows each room to be individually climate controlled. Interior is approximately 1773 sqft with 682 exterior sqft.
While there are too many fine details to note, here are a few highlights. The top terrace features custom western cedar round hot tub with custom finished IPE deck. The hot tub has multiple jets on different levels. The temperature and jets can be pre-set by phone so that the tub is in operation before stepping in. The outdoor kitchen (like the indoor kitchen below) is fitted with Viking appliances. The cabana is heated and features a retractable awning as well as seating for 10.
McCarren Park is straight out your door; It is the largest and most popular park in Williamsburg with an Outdoor Gym, Tennis courts, Handball Courts, Soccer field, Football field, a track for running laps. Fun spots nearby include Ponyboy, Bar Bruno, William Vale, Brooklyn Bowl just to name a few.
There is just nothing else like it in Brooklyn.
