If you have a penchant for history, clocks, and exposed brick, this is the Brooklyn loft for you. See what agent Nick Gavin with Compass is calling “A once-in-a-generation opportunity to live behind The Clock and call one of Brooklyn’s most sought-after and iconic residences home.”
A Landmarked Brooklyn Address
First off, the one-bedroom, one-bathroom unit sits on the top floor of the landmarked, Roman Revival Eagle Warehouse. From the listing we learn it was “originally constructed in 1892 and formerly headquarters to the Brooklyn Eagle, a well-known local newspaper once edited by famed poet Walt Whitman.”
By 1980, the celebrated Eagle Warehouse was later converted to 85 residential units, and the rest as they say, is history. Now you too can become one of its storied residents with a chance to own its crown jewel – the iconic “Clock” unit! Per Mansion Global, architect Michael Davis, who has owned it since 1997, is finally willing to let it go.
Spectacular Views Through The Clock Lens
The sought-after, top floor loft boasts 17-foot ceilings, massive skylights, and a generous floor plan to entertain. But the best part is the view! According to the listing, “mesmerizing views from behind the Clock include the Brooklyn Bridge, Empire State Building, East River, and Lower Manhattan.”
No Expense Spared Throughout
And don’t let the 1,260-square-foot layout fool you. The unit lives large and is perfect for those who like to entertain. In the chef’s kitchen, you’ll enjoy top-of-the-line appliances, including a Viking convection stove, Fisher & Paykel dishwasher drawers, paneled Sub-Zero refrigerator, and sleek stone countertops.
Let’s not forget the built-in bookcases throughout, and a comfortable bedroom suite to turn heads! It has stunning millwork, exposed brick, multiple walk-in closets, and an Indian slate bath with heated flooring.
Fantastic Building Amenities
As a resident, you’ll have a whole host of full-service amenities. This consists of a doorman, live-in super, on-site manager, bike storage, and newly renovated fitness center, and lobby.
Prime Locale Near Brooklyn Bridge Park
Even better, the co-op is perfectly located! It rests at the entrance of Brooklyn Bridge Park which is known for its sprawling 85-acres that spans 1.3 miles along the water. Soccer, lacrosse, basketball, volleyball, bocce courts, roller skating, playgrounds, picnic areas, running, bike paths – the list goes on and on.
An Enviable Lifestyle Close To All The Action
And there’s public events too, like free movies and concerts in the park, which take the lifestyle over the top. You can also walk to a show at St. Ann’s Warehouse or shop at the hip and trendy Empire Stores with mall and food hall, plus a rooftop beer garden.
Better yet, pop over to the chic Dumbo House boutiques or meet friends at Cecconi’s for a slice. Both are just a short distance from your front door. When you want to venture out, hop on the A/C/1/2/3 and F trains or ferry to Lower Manhattan in a snap.
