With its giant windows and 808-square-foot landscaped backyard, this Williamsburg condo marries indoor and outdoor space quite well. Located at 550 Grand Street, the two-bedroom duplex spans over 1,500 square feet and has just hit the market for nearly $2 million. Big windows that front the backyard bring a tremendous amount of light into the pad, including the lower-level bedroom area. And although 550 Grand is an older brick building, the interior has been completely redone with a modern, sleek aesthetic.
The first floor of the duplex holds a living/dining area (which fronts the backyard), a master bedroom and an open kitchen. The kitchen, which has its own island, breakfast bar, and half bathroom, also features a custom-designed, iron rod light fixture that “gives the entire room an ambient glow,” according to the listing.
Right off the living room is the master bedroom and en-suite marble bathroom. From this bedroom you’re able to step out the glass door onto a recessed terrace that leads out to the garden.
Take the wooden staircase down to the lower living area. A huge opening at the top of the staircase ensures that tons of light is streaming down to the below-ground space.
Down here, there’s enough room for a queen-sized bed as well as dressing and lounging areas. And right off the lower level great room is a smaller room ideal for a home office, laundry room or additional half bathroom.
From the backyard, you can see how striking the floor-to-ceiling glass windows are at this apartment.
It’s hard to argue with this backyard. It’s been laid with white stone gravel and holds a garden, brick wall backsplash and fire pit. It offers tons of privacy for large gathering or just a cozy night out roasting s’mores… an amenity that very few New Yorkers can boast they’ve got.
