The somewhat anomalous Newswalk building at 535 Dean Street in Prospect Heights was developed by the somewhat notorious Shaya Boymelgreen (who, for the record, is not known for aesthetically pleasing designs) just before the neighborhood became popular. The condo conversion named for its former life as the 1927-built New York Daily News printing plant doesn’t fit into any of the latest crop of easily dismissible residential building categories. There’s a certain credibility to be had, both from an invasive and a pioneering spirit in this complex neighborhood. And that makes its residences unique if a little confusing.

This latest offering is no exception. The two-bedroom penthouse loft’s interior design looks more Manhattan than Brooklyn, which may help explain the asking price of $5.9 million. Private outdoor space goes on for days, as does the list of building amenities–and there are a few surprises.

The listing calls this duplex “authentic Brooklyn charm meets contemporary urban living,” which isn’t really far off. The living/dining space is framed by 30-foot ceilings and oversized windows through which you can spend your days gazing at a private 3,500-square-foot garden as well as the surrounding cityscape.

In many cases buyers here have turned their units into their own dream creations. Given the location and the at-one-time somewhat reasonable price, the spaces tend to have a DIY look that you don’t find in luxury lofts. And apartment interiors tend to have stories to tell–such as this Joe Ginsberg-designed space with an office suspended from the ceiling.

A “sophisticated Italian kitchen with the highest standards of quality design and high-end stainless steel appliances” is large and colorful.

Though interior square footage is notably absent from the listing, there appears to be plenty of space for bedrooms, two offices and custom closets.

A private home theater was designed by Theo Kalomirakis, who “has long set the standard for design excellence and innovation in home theaters around the world.” Definitely not something you see every day.

Amenities, they’ve got a few, starting with valet parking and Zipcars on the premises, plus a fully-equipped 24-hour fitness center, laundry, bike storage and a double-decker 20,000-square-foot landscaped holodeck with some pretty amazing Manhattan views plus landscaped grilling, lounging, entertaining and children’s play areas.
