This is penthouse loft living at its finest at the Williamsburg condo 138 Broadway, also known as the Smith Gray. Constructed in 1884 as the cast-iron Smith and Gray Department Store Building, this building was converted to condos back in 2002. This unit last sold in 2006 for $1.2 million and now it’s hit the market for twice that much. The three-bedroom, three-bathroom penthouse boasts ceiling heights anywhere from 9 up to 25 feet, with lots of the building’s original exposed brick on display.

The loft comes in at 2,070 square feet over two floors. You enter into the main living area, with a full wall of exposed brick, an open living and dining area, and finally a kitchen. The open living room, which gets plenty of light from a few large windows, is anchored by the dramatic free-floating staircase.

This kitchen was renovated with all the perks: a Wolf range, Subzero fridge, built-in wine cooler and dishwasher.

The second floor holds all three bedrooms, which are blocked off from the loft space below by a hallway. The large master suite, set in front of a full wall of built-in shelving, also has its own bathroom and enough size for an extra sitting area or office space.

The two other bedrooms each have different aesthetics. The listing calls one “cocoon-like and quiet,” while the other is bright and comes with a large terrace attached.

Finally, two different terraces–one off the second bedroom and another off the master suite–come with incredible views of the city. A southeast-facing terrace looks out over Brooklyn and the Financial District, while the northwest-facing terrace comes with those prized Williamsburg Bridge and Manhattan skyline views right off the master suite. There’s even a bonus outdoor space downstairs, a south-facing balcony off the living room.

This apartment is likely one of the most spacious and pricy in the entire building, which is about a 15 minute walk from the Bedford Avenue L. Earlier this year there was an opportunity to rent a smaller apartment here for $3,750 a month.
