The Penthouse condo unit at 53 Summit Street feels like a lofty beach house in the heart of the city! Poised on the edge of Carroll Gardens, in the popular Columbia St. Waterfront District, this beautifully designed duplex condo with two custom decks, exudes a laid-back summer charm all year round.
Brilliantly lit by all 4 exposures and walls of steel encased floor-to-ceiling windows, this sprawling 2300+ sqft home with 10 foot ceilings, is also reminiscent of those rare loft spaces that once graced the cobblestone streets of lower Manhattan.
Up one flight from the quiet street, you enter your private vestibule with double height ceilings perfect for hanging art, coats or cool lighting fixtures.
As you enter the open living/dining/kitchen area you are greeted by a wall of south facing windows. The spacious chef’s kitchen features Bertazzoni gas range with vented hood, Bosch dishwasher, Caesarstone countertops, and a large kitchen island.
Down the 30 foot long hall are two bedrooms, a full bath, a laundry, loads of closets and a north facing master bedroom with ensuite bath—a peaceful and quiet oasis.
On the upper floor, emerge onto the landing complete with space for a home office, plus a full bath with a 10 ft. rain shower head and subway-tiled walls and marble floors and finishes. Need some sunshine? You have your choice of two private terraces: step through the sliding doors to your quiet north-facing terrace and enjoy Manhattan and Governors Island views; or opt for your 465 sqft, south-facing terrace with its shading pergola, custom-built plant boxes and plenty of space for entertaining and growing your favorite plants.
The remainder of the massive open second floor creates a breezy, comfortable space for cozy family gatherings, an special master suite/guest bedroom, enviable entertaining space or an artist’s studio.
This relaxing home, only 7 years old, blends seamlessly with this industrial chic area, quiet low-rise neighborhood with easy on-street parking. The waterfront, Brooklyn Greenway, great local gardens, schools and public transportation, incredibly low Common Charges (just $536) and unabated taxes ($390), separate storage space, move–in ready condition make this an easy choice. Poised just down the street from Fairway, Ikea, great schools and all the incredible shops on Court Street and Smith Streets. Bring your surfboard, painting easels, friends, family and pets and enjoy a quality of life rarely experienced in the city!
