A penthouse recently hit the market at a building that’s perhaps best known for its former moniker, “The Williamsberry.” (Look, naming is hard.) The condos, located close to the waterfront in south Williamsburg, launched in 2015 with that, um, odd, name, but it’s since been dropped in favor of the more simple 338 Berry.
As we’ve noted before, the complex’s penthouse apartments are called “Skyhouses”—which is perhaps a bit of an overstatement, since the apartment is all of eight stories off the ground. But it’s hard to dispute the views, or its solitude. “All views from Skyhouse North are completely private,” the listing promises. And with no neighbors “above, below, or adjacent to any of the windows or the terrace,” you won’t have to share your skyline views with any non-Skyhouse-dwelling plebes.
Listed at $3.495M, the expansive loft features three sleek bedrooms, three and a half baths, and an open kitchen with sparkling appliances and custom-built Italian cabinetry. A great room opens directly onto the private terrace, which, at 771 square feet, is bigger than many apartments. It goes without saying that the ceilings are soaring, the light is plentiful—again, those windows—and, in a nod to its industrial heritage, the beams are exposed.
Once an early 20th century noodle factory, the industrial-luxe doorman building is now decked out with a cushy private gym, a garden, and plenty of bike storage. There’s an rooftop lounge, too—not that you’d need it with those Skyhouse views.
