According to records, half of a certain early-aughts Danish dance-pop duo is selling this Scandi-funk-a-licious modern masterpiece of a 19th-century townhouse at 267 Berry Street, right in the middle of prime Williamsburg near the shores of the East River. The four-story, single-family brick townhouse spans 3,300 not-at-all-square feet and comes with some cool details like an open sunroom leading to a lovely roof deck, colorful minimalist kitchen, music room and media room, and master suite that spans an entire top floor. Even better, lots of original details have been preserved and invited to the party, which will set you back $3.75 million.
At four stories plus a cellar, a completely laid-back and flexible layout can accommodate any lifestyle. In addition to four bedrooms, two full baths and two half baths, there are 500 square feet of outdoor space including a backyard and a gorgeous roof-deck with open views.
A 20-foot-wide parlor floor features soaring ceilings, large west- and east-facing windows for sunrise and sunset celebrations and a living area that can really do some living, with a decorative fireplace and original marble mantel. There’s more than enough room for dining, too. And who wouldn’t love cooking in this Smarties-hued minimalist kitchen, as fun as it is functional, down to the Sunkist-colored modernist classic Vola faucet. Gorgeous hardwood flooring, lots of exposed brick, and a restored original staircase provide a warm and timeless frame
On the second floor are two spacious, sunny bedrooms (and a seriously sunny windowed bath) with more carefully-chosen high-end fixtures.
More exposed brick, clean white walls, tin ceilings, life-affirming color choices and gorgeous floors on the third floor, a vast and sun-blasted master suite that spans the entire floor.
Up a thoroughly modern staircase, a brilliant open sunroom opens onto a private roof deck.
The home’s garden level is in no way left out of the celebration, with a separate entrance, a bedroom/home office in front and a media room/lounge/practice space/ad hoc disco with access to the garden at the back. There’s also a washer/dryer and a full bathroom on this floor. One more flight down is a full cellar with a mechanicals room and over 600 square feet of storage space. The home is as practical as it is cool, with central air conditioning and new mechanicals, electrical and plumbing.
As for the home’s current owner, if we haven’t given you enough clues, this similarly candy-colored retro-tech video might just be the key.
