If you love the wide-open layout a converted warehouse affords, you’ll want to check out this gorgeous residence at 90 Wyckoff Street in Boerum Hill because it was just reduced by nearly 10 percent. And while traditional warehouse sales of the shoe and clothing variety might save you a few hundred bucks, this one will keep a cool $800,000 in your pocket. While the $7.2 million asking price doesn’t qualify for the Boerum Hill townhouse record (a distinction currently held by the house actress Michelle Williams recently sold for $8.8 million), this home is poised to take the runner-up slot and we think it easily holds its own against the competition.
The sprawling 2000-square-foot first floor is flooded with natural light from a sky-lit atrium and a translucent glass wall. Drink in this level’s uber-delicious dream kitchen featuring professional quality appliances, custom cabinetry and a Caesarstone eating bar and counters. An entire wall of custom built-ins anchor the spacious living area and stretch from one end of the home to the other, as does the incredible wide plank wire-brushed oak floor.
A stunning bronze-and-steel curved glass stairway illuminates the way to the second floor with yet another skylight and greets you with an incredible floor-to-ceiling geometrically-paned window once you get there. Here’s where you will find the master suite with its wood-burning fireplace, custom cherry-built-ins, walk-in closet and whirlpool soaking tub–the perfect private retreat. But why stop there? Convert the second bedroom to an office or den, and spend lazy afternoons lounging on the landscaped deck complete with its own Ipe wood pergola and Viking gas grill. Plus this level’s self-contained kitchen makes light work of entertaining either indoors or out.
Two additional bedrooms and a bathroom compete the third floor, which also has access to a beautifully planted private roof deck. And for those of you who prefer garage sales to warehouse sales, this home has that covered too with a personal heated garage. Anyone who’s driven around (and around) the city searching for that ever-elusive parking spot might say the garage alone is worth the $7.2 million asking price.
