Perched at the highest point in Brooklyn in Greenwood Heights, tucked into a quiet street surrounded by greenery, this contemporary townhouse at 614a 7th Avenue, asking $2.75 million, would be equally at home in California or the sun-baked tropics. Balcony doors can be thrown open for panoramic views, which include the Statue of Liberty–and the endless vistas of the adjacent Green Wood Cemetery. On the lucky additions side, there’s a curb cut and a garage. Even better: A mural of Basquiat–a Brooklyn native–on the garage door.

Floor-to-ceiling windows frame those tranquil views, and a planted rooftop offers even more stunning 360-degree vistas, Manhattan skyline views and opportunities to ponder human ingenuity and mortality.

Modern architecture and style are the hallmarks of this unique home, including a custom Corten steel front door, gleaming dark wood floors and a sophisticated open living and dining room. The home’s parlor level boasts lofty ceilings and an expanse of glass framing the rolling green lawns across the street.

In the sleek modern kitchen are Viking and Subzero appliances and lots of storage. A deck leads to a gorgeous landscaped 50-foot deep garden oasis.

One more flight up you’ll find a master bedroom with a private balcony–with those Liberty views, a huge walk-through closet and a luxurious master bath. An additional smaller bedroom could serve a multitude of uses.

At street level is that coveted garage, more storage, a powder room and access to a covered patio overlooking the garden. Below, a finished basement–currently being used as a home gym and media space–has tall ceilings and plenty of natural light.
