If you’re looking for bragging rights and great views, this DUMBO pad at 205 Water Street asking $4.3 million may be just what the doctor ordered. The three-bedroom duplex was featured in Harpers Bazaar in 2013, and is currently home to interior designer and lifestyle guru Athena Calderone and her music producer husband, DJ Victor Calderone along with their nine-year-old son Jivan.
So, why are the Calderones leaving this impeccably-designed apartment with over 2,344 square feet of outdoor space granting splendid river, bridge, and city views? Turns out it’s nothing but a short attention span. “We’re kind of serial movers,” Calderone expressed of her nomadic family who purchased the home for $2.3 million in 2012. “We tend to move every three years.” We’re guessing they’re a prompt family, too, as they’re right on time for a change of scenery. Fortunately for us, this family’s propensity for change means we get to take a moment to admire their pretty spectacular loft-like abode.
Enter the first floor from a private-access elevator and step into a dramatic double-height living and dining area. This remarkable space boasts matte-finished wide-plank floors, concrete walls, an open steel staircase, two-story walls of windows and 20+-foot ceilings. And we’re still not finished. A high-end kitchen opens to the rest of the entertaining space, which has direct access to an intimate balcony and a massive terrace with city views and a fire pit.
Head to the back of the first floor to find two windowed bedrooms and a laundry room with Bosch appliances. On the second level there’s a delectable master suite with a generous south-facing terrace, an en suite bath, a walk-in closet and an office. More outdoor space awaits on the expansive roof terrace.
205 Water Street is a full-service condominium built in 2010. Residents enjoy perks like a fitness room, media lounge, courtyard, common outdoor space, bicycle storage, cold storage and 24-hour concierge. Transportation and neighborhood hotspots, including restaurants and shopping, are right nearby.
