BEST RESIDENCE AT PIERHOUSE – FASTEST SELLING LINE
Exquisitely styled, N-518 at Pierhouse is one of a kind. Custom designs and additions make this 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom a very special offering. Loft-like, this duplex unit boasts incredible ceiling heights and double height windows with vistas of Manhattan, the Brooklyn Bridge, the East River and the Statue of Liberty.
Entering the top level, a powder bath with custom walnut shelf complements the upper living area. It is currently arranged as a home office and lounge, with custom millwork cabinetry for two desks and a TV console with storage. Phillip Jeffries wallcoverings and a custom Christopher Guy walnut mirror adorn the space. Overlooking the lower level, it provides separation but still enjoys the marvelous light and views of the western facing windows.
Descending the stairs to the main level of the home, the large, open living space is bright and airy with ceiling heights over 18.5’. An impressive John Pomp chandelier highlights the space. The spectacular windows frame downtown Manhattan and the Freedom Tower, and a private terrace off the living room overlooks Brooklyn Bridge Park with views of the Statue of Liberty and the Brooklyn Bridge. Inside, the light is fantastic, with sun rays streaming in at sunset to create complete magic.
In the living room, a custom Calcite Azul Marble hearth features a linear fireplace with Bio Flame and smartly hides more storage underneath. A thoughtful sliding cocktail bar and China shelf hides the AC equipment in the wall. There is dedicated space for dining that flows seamlessly into the kitchen. Kitchen finishes include solid custom Pedini walnut cabinetry and Calacatta Tucci marble slab counters, backsplash, and island with breakfast bar. The kitchen is complete with high-end Gaggenau appliances, including a wine refrigerator. Space underneath the stairs can also be utilized for more storage.
Next to the living area is the primary suite with its own private terrace. It enjoys panoramic views from the Empire State Building to the Statue of Liberty. In the bedroom, custom cabinetry has been added to accompany the walk-in-closets. The en suite five-fixture spa bathroom is appointed with Ruscello Fosso Picollo marble floors, Waterworks fixtures, and walnut and brushed nickel vanities. The custom three-way mirror with lighting, soaking tub and spa shower is super luxurious.
Off the kitchen through a sliding door, is a second den area with custom millwork for additional storage space. Currently setup as a playroom, it leads to the two eastern facing secondary bedrooms. They share a full bathroom with double sinks. There is a washer/dryer and more closets in the hallway.
