144 N 8th St, Unit PH2
A true penthouse in every sense of the word. This elegant, full floor keyed elevator residence is unlike any other offering in Williamsburg, and perhaps all of Brooklyn. The current owners have meticulously customized and optimized every inch of this home to the highest of standards. Soaring ceilings (over 12 feet) and a wall of windows wrap around the perimeter of the apartment, framing jaw-dropping 360-degree skyline views that must be seen to believed. With over 2,100 interior square feet and another 725 exterior square feet, this pin-drop quiet 2 bedroom / 2.5 bath can be converted to a 3 bedroom in a variety of ways, maintaining the existing sensation of openness, light, and air.
Designed to entertain and host at the grandest of scale, the enormous living and dining rooms span over 37 linear feet wide, complemented by a deep continuous glass wrap around terrace, seamlessly transitioning between indoor and outdoor living space. Column-free interiors, in-ceiling Sonos speakers, electric blinds, a built-in bar along with a custom entertainment center and a sleek powder room make this apartment ideal to host an extravagant party — or just relax at the end of the day, feeling as though you are floating above the city.
The bright master bedroom suite features a full Manhattan skyline view anchored by the Empire State Building, a Carrie Bradshaw-esque walk-in-closets and a dreamy en-suite master bathroom features a walk-in shower and a 36” deep Waterworks soaking tub.
