Eco-friendly duplex loft condo with private courtyard, roof deck, central air in Gowanus. The ideal space for art lovers with long brick walls to hang your paintings and a patio for your sculptures.
A beautiful steel cladded exterior sets the scene for this genuine loft in a former electrical warehouse at 262 Bond Street in Gowanus. The sprawling 2,008 square-foot duplex is arrayed around a central double-height courtyard and steel stairs that lead to a large private roof deck. In a nod to its industrial past, there is exposed brick throughout.
It is currently configured as a 2-bedroom with 2.5 baths. But it would easily be remodeled into a 3-bedroom.
The building was one of the first in Brooklyn to be certified LEED, so the apartment is environmentally friendly and has very low utility bills coupled with high efficiency HVAC and heating systems. What's more, both outdoor spaces have electric, gas, and water lines for entertaining, and the roof deck's custom planters are irrigated.
The first floor opens onto a large living and dining area with large windows overlooking the courtyard. The large modern galley kitchen has subway tile, stainless steel appliances, two ovens, Cambria solid surface countertops and a built-in 56-bottle wine refrigerator. There is also storage, a half bath, and a full-sized washer/dryer on this level.
Upstairs is a massive master bedroom suite configured around huge windows and skylights. There are two full baths, one of which is equipped with a Jacuzzi tub, the other with a walk-in marble shower. The skylights are equipped with solar and blackout shades for deep and restful sleep.
The 825-square-foot roof deck is set up for entertaining and has a concealed shed for furniture and gardening equipment.
The two-unit building is near the intersection of Boerum Hill, Carroll Gardens and Cobble Hill. Nearby are the D&D pool, several parks, the Cobble Hill Cinemas, the Royal Palm Shuffle Board Club and Ample Hills Creamery.
