The Bath Haus
Originally constructed in 1903 as one of 13 Public Bath Houses in New York City, this architectural jewel has now been reimagined for 21st century living. Unique and distinctive, the facade of the Bath Haus preserves architect Louis H. Voss' original vision, maintains and restores its original architectural elements, and pays homage to the spirit of the City Beautiful movement in New York of which it was born. With only 9 residences, the Bath Haus offers a rare opportunity to purchase a home with architectural provenance in the heart of Greenpoint- quickly emerging as one of the most desirable neighborhoods in all of New York City.
Designed by award-winning NYC design firm Meshberg Group- the residence interiors at the Bath Haus are elegant and minimalist. Natural Carrara and Bello marble reference the building’s history, while 7" PID European Oak flooring and oversized custom windows bring warmth and sunlight into each home. Kitchens feature a fully integrated Bosch and Leibherr appliance package with matte white and brushed metal finish cabinetry, and each residence comes with a Bosch Washer and Dryer. There is a common roof deck, available storage, and a common recreational room for resident's use. Closings anticipated early 2021.
