The lucky new resident of this Brooklyn Heights loft will never have an excuse to be late again. As the listing correctly describes it, this is a “once-in-a-generation opportunity” to live behind the historic clock on the top floor of the Eagle Warehouse & Storage Company building at 28 Old Futon Street. The co-op is made even more incredible by its 17-foot ceilings, two huge skylights, exposed brick and millwork, and views of the Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan skyline.

The living room skylight covers nearly the entire room and bathes the brick walls in natural light. The home is being sold by architect Michael Davis, which explains the impeccable taste.

The custom kitchen has plenty of cabinets, as well as stone counters, a Viking convection stove, Fisher & Paykel dishwasher drawers, and a paneled Sub-Zero refrigerator.

The master bedroom benefits from another huge skylight and also has heated flooring, loads of built-ins, two regular closets, and two walk-in closets, one of which has a washer/dryer. There’s another walk-in closet in the hallway.

The bathroom can be entered through either the hall or the bedroom. It’s adorned in Indian slate.

In total, the home offers 1,260 square feet of living space. The Eagle Warehouse building was built in 1892 and was once the home of the Brooklyn Eagle. In 1980, it was converted to 85 residential units. Amenities include a doorman, live-in super, bike storage, and a newly renovated fitness center and lobby.

In 2017, another residence behind a historic clock sold at the Clock Tower building in Dumbo. This sale set the record for the most expensive sale Brooklyn had ever seen at the time.
