The penthouse at One Brooklyn Bridge Park at 360 Furman Street owned by Elizabeth Stribling, founder of real estate firm Stribling & Associates, which was sold to Compass in 2019, is for sale for $8,500,000. The Brooklyn Heights condo–a combination of two units adding up to 3,440 square feet–is wrapped on all sides by a terrace and blessed with 360-degree views of New York Harbor, the Manhattan skyline, and the Statue of Liberty. As the Wall Street Journal reports, the home’s current owner is a devoted Francophile; French inspirations and old-world European style can be found throughout the home, including salvaged antique French oak herringbone floors, heavy wooden pocket doors, fossilized marble fireplace mantles, a Lacanche range, custom millwork, and a powder room sink inspired by the milk basin in the Palace of Versailles.

Stribling bought two unfinished units from the building’s developer for $6 million in 2009. She and her husband, retired investment banker Guy Robinson, designed the home’s interior, which began as a raw loft space, over two years with an eye toward grand entertaining. As such, it features a 41-foot-long living room, ceilings over 10 feet, a massive primary bedroom, and a second bedroom used as an office. However, the floor plan could easily accommodate three or four bedrooms.

The highlight of the home’s peerless interiors is the library; this stunning sanctuary, clad in Hermès-orange lacquer, is modeled after Brooke Astor’s Park Avenue librry. In the powder room, an ornate pedestal sink is a replica of a milk basin in Marie-Antoinette’s hamlet in the Palace of Versailles. The powder room also features an alabaster chandelier and sconces made by local artisans.

Ornate gold-edged doors frame the dining room. The adjacent kitchen is anchored by a dark green Lacanche range–the same shade as the room’s deep green marble worktops. A wood-paneled office looks out on a vine-wrapped pergola on the terrace.

Through a private circular foyer is the home’s huge primary bedroom. An adjacent dressing room, framed by those breathtaking views, features a claw-foot soaking tub.

A 1,900-square-foot terrace wraps the entire apartment. In addition to the aforementioned pergola, this enviable outdoor space is landscaped and bordered with boxwood, yew, and beech trees.

The fully-staffed One Brooklyn Bridge Park offers residents a seemingly endless list of amenities including a 3,000-square-foot gym, a screening room, a billiards room, a music room, children’s playrooms, a golf simulator, four business suites, and a parking garage. The building sits within an 85-acre waterfront park with playing fields, sports courts, playgrounds, lawns, and running and bike paths. The boat basin offers slips for watercraft and small craft.
