The owner of this Red Hook rowhouse, a local architect and designer, bought the property at 373 Van Brunt Street in 2007 for just $700,000. He then created a “soaring industrial chic” home, as the listing describes, using repurposed salvaged beams, exposed brick, and structural steel. It’s set up as a live-work owner’s triplex, complete with a roof deck and a green roof, along with a ground-level commercial space that’s currently an art gallery. It’s now on the market for $2,875,000.

The home is accessed via its own ground-floor entrance and foyer hallway with a staircase that leads up to the second floor, where you’re greeted by the soaring, 22-foot-high living room ceilings. These function as a perfect exposed brick art wall.

The dining room and adjacent kitchen are open to the living room. Beamed ceilings and a brick fireplace in the dining room keep things rustic, as do the butcher block counters in the kitchen. There’s also a full bathroom and laundry on this floor.

Facing the street, there are two bedrooms, one larger with a fireplace mantle and a smaller one.

On the third floor, there are three bedrooms, including the primary suite, which has a floating clawfoot tub and pedestal sink, as well as a water closet.

Half of the fourth floor is a loft that’s used as a home office, while the other half is a roof deck that also leads up to the green roof. The outdoor spaces have views of the Manhattan skyline, the Statue of Liberty, and the Verrazano Bridge. There is built-in seating and storage, a romantic pergola, grilling area, Ipe decking, built-in planters, and a tiled mudroom with a deep cast iron sink.

On street level, the original 19th-century storefront leads to a space that can be used as “an ideal gallery or professional office space, a studio apartment with full bath, ‘origami’ kitchenette, storage, and access to the deep, lush, landscaped garden,” according to the listing.

The home is within walking distance to all the neighborhood’s best spots, like Brooklyn Crab, Hometown Bar-B-Que, The Red Hook Winery, and Ikea. The subway is quite a hike, but the ferry is much more convenient.
