Brooklyn Heights‘ Eagle Warehouse & Storage Company building at 28 Old Futon Street was built in 1892 as the Brooklyn Eagle’s headquarters. In 1980, it was converted to 85 residential co-ops, many of which retain the building’s original architectural details. And this triplex unit, currently on the market for $3 million, certainly fits that bill. In almost every room, there are gorgeous brick barrel-vaulted ceilings, along with brick walls and cast-iron columns. But what makes the three-bedroom home truly unique is the modern renovation that works so beautifully with its history.

On the main floor, the ceilings are over 11 feet high. Throughout, there are 17 oversized windows; those in the living room are each fitted with custom wooden shutters. The cool sliding barn doors allow you to keep the living room and kitchen open or to add some privacy. The kitchen features white marble waterfall counters and backsplash and top-of-the-line appliances including a WOLF oven and range, GE Monogram refrigerator, microwave/warming drawer, and dishwasher.

On the other side of the kitchen is the dining room, which may just be the coolest room in the house thanks to its brick wall and suspended wine rack. There’s built-in storage spanning the width of the room, as well as two closets.

Upstairs are the three bedrooms and a full bathroom in the hall. The front and rear bedrooms are large enough to hold separate seating areas.

The lower level is set up as a media room and study, the two spaces separated by a contemporary double-sided fireplace. There’s a ton of built-in storage as well as two ceiling recesses for light fixtures. Also on this level are a powder room and a second private entrance, which opens to a mudroom/laundry room.

The Eagle Warehouse offers residents a live-in super, on-site manager, bike storage, and newly renovated fitness center. It’s located at the entrance to Brooklyn Bridge Park at Pier 1, where you can catch the East River Ferry.
