Van Brunt Street has been ground zero for Red Hook's gentrification, so it's fitting that a house that could set a neighborhood price record is on the same street. Asking $2.15M, the renovated three-story red brick house (listing spotted by the Observer) is located at 386 Van Brunt Street, and it's currently configured as an owner's duplex atop a ground floor gallery/commercial space. Interestingly, the same house was listed for $300K more last year, mid-renovation. The brokerbabble highlights the facade of "original brick melded with new Corten Steel, as used by renowned artist Richard Serra, and more recently installed at the Barclay Center in Brooklyn." Everyone wants in on the Barclays action.
The ground floor space features "lovely exposed brick walls, polished concrete floors and massive steel enclosed oversized glass windows and doors to allow maximum natural light to stream throughout the space." The "divine duplex" has triple exposures, a terrace, a rooftop deck, an office, two bedrooms, and three full bathrooms. Custom steel windows, polished, wide plank floors, natural stone finishes, and lots more exposed brick given the space and industrial feel. The kitchen is outfitted with stainless steel appliances, including a 36" range, and a movable wooden island. This all adds up to 2,600-square-feet. Will it set a neighborhood record or will it meet the PriceChopper?
