Steps away from Brooklyn Bridge Park, a visit to this truly unique loft home in DUMBO starts with a walk across the 5th floor private bridge. The landmarked, 1894 Eagle Warehouse's old world features give way to a sleek, loft-like interior. Steeped in history, it has height, a flowing layout and views of the Empire State Building, Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges. This artist's home has 11+ foot ceilings and plenty of wall space to hang your largest canvases. The sprawling living/dining area provides plenty of room for a large dining table, office and sitting areas. Perched above all this is a sleeping/storage loft accessed by a hidden stairway that is great guest quarters and additional storage. The living space features oak hardwood floors, a gorgeous and ingenious built-in shelf system that offers a place to display (or hide) your treasured books and objets d'art. There is more custom-built storage on one wall of the living area that includes a surreptitious desk area that folds away when you don't need it. The large open kitchen features plentiful custom cabinetry faced in ash. The Liebherr refrigerator and Bosch dishwasher are also cloaked in the same wood. Calacatta marble counters complete the kitchen. The spacious bedroom features an enormous wall of closets and faces the building's atrium. The bathroom has also been updated with deep soaking tub, subway tile and storage. There is also extensive additional storage over the entry hall accessed from the bedroom. Designed by architect Frank Freeman and completed in 1894, the Eagle Warehouse is on the National Register of Historic Places. Designated as Freeman's 'masterpiece' by the NY Times architecture critic in 1995, the striking building is just steps from the Brooklyn Bridge Park, the NYC Ferry, countless restaurants and bars and all that DUMBO has to offer. It is a short walk to the famed Brooklyn Heights Promenade. Convenient to the A/C, F, & 2/3 subway lines. Pet friendly, the doorman building has bike storage, a well-appointed gym, and private storage for a fee.
