It may be a “landmark in the making,” but the energy-efficient townhouse at 168 Water Street has yet to snag a buyer, and after more than a year on the market, the hyper-stylish Dumbo digs are getting low-key price cut: the ask just dropped to an $5.995 million, down from $6.395 million about a year ago.
Not that the hyper-stylish four-bedroom home is short on multi-million dollar charms. The shiny new modernist palace—the place was finished in 2015 and first hit the market when the owners decided to downsize a year later—offers four sleek stories of living space, a back garden, a garage, and a private roof deck, obviously with idyllic skyline views.
Other perks include Scavolini Italian kitchen, which features an understated 20-foot kitchen island, custom drawers with custom inserts, and eye-catching cylindrical hood vents. The bathroom accessories are equally luxurious, down to the fog-proof custom medicine cabinets with in-cabinet outlets and built-in lighting.
The master suite, meanwhile, spans the whole of the third floor, and has a souped-up bathroom with two rain-shower heads, a private toilet room, and a custom walk-in closet that appears to be roughly the size of a small department store.
Because all strong relationships are based on good communication, the home also features an intercom system installed between all floors and the roof deck. There’s also a garage (with an automated turntable) and a laundry room (with full-sized side-by-side Miele appliances).
