Get ready to feast your eyes on this stunning Prospect Heights loft located in the Newswalk Condominium–and unlike anything offered on the Brooklyn market today. Every detail was masterfully created by award-winning designer Joe Ginsberg, from original furniture pieces fabricated in the artist’s atelier and included with the home to the specialized techniques and processes used in creating the distinctive wall and ceiling finishes.
Utterly unique touches like the handcrafted interior doors (both designed and fabricated on-site) and the striking steel platform and stair suspended from the double-height ceiling brilliantly display the designer’s magical aesthetic throughout the 2,000-square-foot residence. An encaustic finish applied to the entry walls creates a feeling of warmth and sets the tone as you move into the comfortable dining and living space. A hand-carved mahogany bookcase with a rolling library ladder soars up to 13-foot ceiling heights and nearly steals the show until you catch a glimpse of that suspended office, which looks onto the south-facing wall of oversized windows and offers an unobstructed view of brownstone Brooklyn.
The utilitarian-yet-still-gorgeous kitchen features professional grade Viking appliances and original bronze cabinet pulls forged by the designer himself. A substantial pantry provides ample storage for the chef of the home and is outfitted with California Closets.
The enormous master bedroom, which boasts Venetian plaster, an ensuite bathroom with platinum encased glass shower door, an original vanity piece, and Frighetto custom closets, is the very definition of the word oasis.
There’s even a lovely private terrace equipped with an automatic irrigation system for the plants and a handmade stone bench. Plus, this showpiece home listed at $2.4 million also comes with all the benefits of living in the Newswalk Condominium, a full-service building that includes doorman and porter services, a stunning landscaped roof deck with an elevated barbecue and picnic area, a fully-equipped fitness center, children’s playroom, and an attended parking garage.
