A northwest corner 2BR/2BA, Unit 4K features eight oversized windows viewing onto a shimmering stretch of the East River, the Brooklyn Bridge, and World Trade Center. Inside, western light illuminates nearly 1300 square feet of intuitively designed space including an open kitchen, living, and dining room that offers everything in flow while sacrificing nothing in size and highlights an exposed beam that hearkens back to the building's storied history (see photos for a peek at the original Eberhard Faber pencil factory).
Entering through an inviting entry foyer, a pleasing winged layout unfolds offering privacy (and an ever-so-subtle sense of commute) between the owner's suite and a sun-soaked second bedroom or home office. The island kitchen is a host's delight, featuring stainless steel GE appliances and Caesarstone quartz countertops, and the open layout offers a wonderfully inviting space for entertaining and relaxing.
The king-size owner's suite has a dressing area and luxurious bathroom with deep soaking tub and glassed-in stall shower. The large second bedroom looks directly across the river to Manhattan, and is across from the generous second bath. Abundant closet space, high ceilings, hardwood floors, an in-unit washer/dryer, and stunning sunsets that cast a glow through the doubled-glass windows (effectively soundproof) make this apartment a special find on the market today.
The longtime home of the Eberhard Faber Pencil Co., which in the early 20th century was America's first pencil manufacturer and one of Brooklyn's biggest employers for a largely female workforce, the Old Pencil Factory today features a panoramic common roof deck, recently upgraded gym, virtual doorman, full-time super, private parking (available for rent), basement, bike racks, and party room. In addition to the lobby renovation presently underway, upgrades to all common amenities will be made in the coming year, without assessment, and the building is tax abated until 2026.
Just two blocks to the East River Ferry and three blocks to the G train, your commute anywhere will be easy, and your home is surrounded by wonderful restaurants, bars, coffeeshops, bakeries and shopping Ovenly, Little Neck, Maman, and Naked Dog are all in a round-the-corner radius, and Michelin-starred Oaxaco and should-be-Michelin-starred Madras and Glasserie are just blocks away. Kickstarter is a neighbor, and Transmitter Park, with its iconic graffiti, shoreline lawn, and Manhattan skyline views, is a minute's walk away.
