This top-floor condominium in Brooklyn’s Columbia Street Waterfront district has the space–2,300 square feet of it–and the views to feel more beachfront than brownstone. The neighborhood has a history of its own, and though the building at 53 Summit Street may be new, 10-foot ceilings and steel-framed windows look right at home in the formerly industrial neighborhood. Asking $2.195 million, this lofty duplex offers three or four bedrooms to configure as you wish and two custom decks for summertime lounging.
Four exposures and floor-to-ceiling steel-framed windows make the space modern as well as loft-like. Pale wood floors and breathtaking views add luxury to the clean, beachy interiors.
Up one flight from the street, a vestibule with double-height ceilings opens into the living/dining/kitchen area, where a wall of south-facing windows promises a daily flood of sunshine.
A gleaming white kitchen offers a Bertazzoni gas range with vented hood, Bosch dishwasher, Caesarstone countertops and a large island for gathering and prep.
On this floor of the sprawling duplex you’ll find a large and tranquil master suite. Also here are two additional bedrooms, a full bath, laundry and plenty of closet space.
Upstairs there’s room for an office, and a third bath boasts subway-tiled walls and marble floors and finishes. A large open area on this floor could be used as a master suite/guest bedroom, play space or artist’s studio.
The best feature of this waterfront district penthouse may be its outdoor space in the form of not one but two private terraces. The first is accessible through sliding doors and offers Manhattan and Governors Island views. A 465-square-foot south-facing terrace boats a pergola, custom planters and plenty of room and sunshine for gardening.
