Views! Views! Views! Seriously, that’s what you’re getting with this two-bedroom apartment at 70 Washington Street, a former Dumbo warehouse that has been converted into 225 condo apartments. It was converted by Two Trees Management, prominent developers in the neighborhood, who built out luxury loft apartments and included a 24-hour concierge, doorman, fitness room, and roof deck with the building.
This apartment has windows in both the living room and bedroom that offer an incredible look out onto the entire stretch of the Brooklyn Bridge and Lower Manhattan skyline. There’s a total of 1,310 square feet and a lofty, open floor plan. A view like that in a neighborhood as popular as Dumbo doesn’t come cheap — although you can still find the occasional apartment in the area for under $1 million without the impressive views, of course. This one is on the market for $1.6 million, after last selling in 2007 for $1,055,926.
Despite the conversion, the apartment still has some nice lofty features like concrete-beamed, 11-foot-high ceilings and super big windows. It’s finished off with dark-stained bamboo flooring throughout. The three living room windows offer some of the coolest views of the Brooklyn Bridge we’ve seen from an apartment.
The open living room and dining room open up into an open kitchen. Built-in shelving takes advantage of the high ceilings.
The kitchen is outfitted with a Sub-Zero refrigerator, Thermador oven/cooktop and a Bosch dishwasher. A cool perk of the space: an under-the-counter wine cooler.
A home office is located at the other end of the apartment. There’s no window in here, so it’s not legally a second bedroom. But the current owners found enough space to build out a cute kid’s bedroom. Bunk beds helpfully maximize the space.
The master bedroom is a large, long space, where double closets lead to an ensuite bathroom with a glass-enclosed shower and spa-style tub. It is located right next to the living room, which means you get those same impressive views of the bridge. When you’ve got a New York view like that to wake up to every morning, what’s the purpose of getting out of bed?
