East River Co-op is a four-building complex with a total of 1,672 apartments. It’s located on Grand Street, just off the FDR, which means many of its homes have incredible East River views. This apartment at 568 Grand Street has just that, overlooking the Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Williamsburg Bridges, as well as the Freedom Tower. The four-bedroom home also has a private terrace and tons of closet space, and it’s asking $2,495,000.

Enter into a lovely foyer with floor-to-ceiling storage, a floating mirror, and an entry bench. Partitioning white oak doors separate this space from the rest of the apartment, which was completely designed by environmentally responsible architect Gregory Colston in a sleek, industrial style complete with exposed concrete walls and columns.

The living room gets tons of light from southwest-facing corner windows that overlook the Manhattan Bridge. There’s a custom-fit steel and ash shelving unit and a Hearth Cabinet fireplace with a basalt stone hearth and a Venetian plaster accent wall.

The open kitchen features Calacatta countertops, a large center island, handmade Moroccan-tiled backsplash, and a large walk-in pantry with thick solid oak shelving. Appliances include a Miele six-burner range, Bosch ultra-quiet dishwasher, Subzero refrigerator with icemaker, separate wine fridge, and an integrated stainless steel sink counter. An adjacent dining area sits in its own perfectly fitted space with room for a 10-12 person dining table.

Off the kitchen, through a large solid oak sliding door, is the primary bedroom suite, which has a 25′ x 6′ Ipe terrace with a retractable awning facing southwest with views of the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges and Freedom Tower. An en-suite windowed bathroom has heated marble floors, Dolomite white marble walls, a walk-in shower with a bench, and a Toto wall-mounted toilet. There’s also a walk-in walnut closet and an office nook.

The other three bedrooms are back off the foyer. One faces southwest with Manhattan Bridge views, while the other two, one of which has an en-suite bathroom, face northeast with views of the Williamsburg Bridge. There’s also a third full bathroom in the hall.

The building is located just south of the Williamsburg Bridge, right across from the East River Park fields and basketball court. Corlears Hook Park is also close by, but the closest subways–the F train at East Broadway or the F, M, J, and Z trains at Essex Street–are a bit of a walk.
