Brooklyn, NY 11231
Welcome to 181 President Street: Carroll Garden's ode to privacy and exclusivity in the form of an exceptional townhome. Custom-crafted with the vision of enhanced living and built in the heart of one of Brooklyn's most sought-after brownstone neighborhoods.
Designed by Workshop DA, the home boasts an array of finishes that channel Brooklyn's industrial heritage. Immersed in luxury and modern convenience, no expense was spared in crafting this expansive 5,356 sqft residence. A central skylight and over-sized windows allow natural light to radiate throughout. The private elevator makes for easy access to all four levels in addition to a multi-car garage outfitted with a Tesla charging station; accessible through a motorized, solid Mahogany door.
Noteworthy characteristics include a striking steel staircase adjacent to custom walnut shelving that doubles as a green or accent wall. The home spans 35-feet wide, with an exterior constructed of brick and walnut, inclusive of a curb cut. The private multi-car garage easily fits two large cars with ample space for a private at-home gym or work studio.
The contemporary design aesthetic of the home is exemplified by some of its most standard features like rift-sawn limed oak, wide-plank flooring laid in a herringbone pattern. Step out of your private elevator to enter an expansive twenty-nine foot (29ft) wide living room. Twelve foot (12ft) ceilings, combined with a wall of floor to ceiling glass doors that fully open, create seamless indoor-outdoor entertaining. Elevate your private outdoor dining experience! The landscaped terrace is outfitted with a kitchenette, grilling station and an elegant pergola that provides shade for the built-in seating area.
A sunny, eat-in chef's kitchen is fully equipped with appliances by Miele, Wolf and Liebherr, including a five-burner gas cooktop, wall oven, microwave, warming drawer and coffeemaker. Nublado countertops + backsplash and a Blanco fireclay apron-front sink perfectly complement the white and walnut custom cabinetry.
The third floor offers three gracious, sunlit bedrooms and two stately bathrooms with abundant closet space while maintaining the privacy of the Master Floor above. The Master Floor is the definition of refinement, showcasing an impressive bedroom with a king-sized walk-in closet and views of Lower Manhattan. The lush Master Bathroom encompasses a freestanding oval tub, a sky lit shower, and a stunning custom marble vanity. A chic home office and library, equipped with a wet bar, is just across the corridor.
The serene roof terrace with open views of the Manhattan skyline is an ideal place to relax. The terrace is professionally landscaped with built-in speakers and custom lighting to show off the Bluestone floor tiles, complimented by custom horizontal pipe fencing. Not to be forgotten, the cellar level of the home features a temperature-controlled wine room and a media room perfect for an at-home theatre.
