When John Roebling built the Brooklyn Bridge in the mid-1800’s, he merely wanted connect the borough of Brooklyn to Manhattan. Little did he know his stone and cable suspension bridge would become one of New York City’s most iconic images. Every year, tourists flock to the Big Apple to, among a host of other unique activities, view the landmark. But with this luxury penthouse, you can always have one of the best views of the Brooklyn Bridge, the Manhattan Bridge, and Williamsburg Bridge. In fact, this premium New York City home offers a 360° view of the famous metropolis. And not only does this dream home have fantastic views, it sits right in the center of DUMBO.
A New York City Home in Popular DUMBO
DUMBO, Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass, is the most popular neighborhood in the borough of Brooklyn, New York. Bordering the East River and spanning east and west of the Manhattan Bridge, DUMBO has a vibe all its own. In decades past, warehouses filled the area. It was also a ferry stop. However, nearly thirty years ago, the area underwent gentrification. Warehouses and industrial buildings became luxury dream homes. High-end boutiques lined the cobblestone streets. And now, tech start-ups are the burgeoning residents in the neighborhood. In addition, DUMBO abuts the equally prestigious Brooklyn Heights, a neighborhood that celebrities often choose for their New York City home.
Fusing Elegant Sophistication and Modern Elements
Sophisticated modern features fill this luxury penthouse. The open floor plan of the kitchen and living room combine with the oversized windows to let in abundant sunshine and highlight the awe-inducing city view. The dramatic entry foyer, accessed directly from the elevator, has black-stained oak walls and a chic Nero Monte Carlo marble bench. The use of dark color funnels the eye directly to the large windows and skyline. And throughout the residence, sleek Terrazzo tiles and slabs blend with warm woods. However, this New York City home does not ignore the building’s roots in DUMBO. This dream home is new construction in a fully-gutted building. Concrete beams and columns add an industrial edge to this elegant space. And the clean lines and neutral palette lend themselves to a bounty of decorating options.
