$1.4M Williamsburg ‘Penthouse’ Has On-Trend Finishes, Two Terraces and Skyline Views

With its pretty, rustic-meets-modern kitchen, tons of outdoor space on two levels and glass accordion doors framing gorgeous city views, this 956-square-foot condo at 150 Richardson Street has the makings of a smart little home in a coveted Williamsburg spot. A $1.425 million ask for the top-floor walk-up is likely based on that location, in a neighborhood that has become one of the borough’s–if not the city’s–priciest. Let’s take a closer look at what you get with your prime ‘burg pad.

Both the building and the apartment are easy on the eyes. Arched industrial-size windows bring in sunlight, and interior details are interesting and well-constructed, with “custom built finishes by local artisans” that include reclaimed brick from a carriage and buggy factory and antique oak hardwood floors.

The kitchen rocks smoky blue cabinets, floating walnut shelves, white subway tile walls and an oversized island with Luce Di Luna quartzite stone.

A second bedroom/office is perched in the loft above, with a large private terrace offering those outstanding Manhattan views and easy access through those cool glass doors. Though the listing calls this a “flexible 2 bedroom duplex loft,” the lofted upstairs room is small, open to the space below, and there’s no bathroom nearby. What’s more, it lowers the ceiling on the kitchen below.

Back downstairs, a nicely-designed bath joins a utility closet with a washer and dryer for convenience. What’s not so convenient: The apartment–particularly the kitchen–looks low on storage space. And though the open kitchen/living/dining configuration is a popular choice for small apartments and sprawling lofts, it doesn’t exactly scream “penthouse.” A vented stove and a washer/dryer are quality additions, but central air is missing from this modern oasis.

525 exterior square feet of terrace is certainly a nice thing to have–and skyline views get top billing, of course. Otherwise, an exciting location on Graham Avenue, packed with amenities and minutes from Manhattan, may be the biggest draw for what amounts to a one-bedroom-plus walk-up duplex.
