An ultra-modern Brooklyn townhouse with a futuristic design hit the market for $5,500,000 with Deborah Rieders of The Corcoran Group. The curved, white organic forms give the home a “Star Wars” or “2001: A Space Odyssey” vibe. One of three newly-constructed attached houses, 74 South 2nd Street was designed by Murat Mutlu, the principal of International Office of Architects (INOA) and a follower of the world-renowned Zaha Hadid.
The concrete and steel of the exterior give this Brooklyn townhouse its durability and futuristic edge, while the greenery of the terrace garden, the wide-plank hardwood floors, and black-finished wood cabinetry provide a sense of warmth.
The great room has double-height 22′ ceilings and two-story windows with lush garden views. Another ‘floating’ living area is found on the mezzanine above. The kitchen is outfitted with Italian Breccia Capraia marble counters, waterfall-edge island and black-washed custom wood cabinetry. There are paneled Miele appliances, deep sinks, designer lighting, great storage and ample counterspace.
The next floor up features two spacious bedrooms with beautiful views of the waterfront and two baths.
The top floor serves as a grand primary suite and boasts extra high 12′ ceilings, jaw-dropping views and a walk-in closet. The en-suite bathroom is designed in a mid-century minimalist style and features a Sahara Noir marble counters and a luxurious free-standing tub.
In addition to the multi-level garden, a private roof deck with innovative glass fencing offers stunning views of the East River and the Manhattan skyline.
