In Williamsburg, a 19th-century firehouse has been transformed into a live-work space that spans more than 4,650 square feet across its four floors. TBD Architecture & Design Studio molded the three-bedroom abode into a space that offers an artist’s studio, loft space, outdoor sanctuaries, and more. Let’s take a closer look.

“The ground level, once occupied by the firehouse’s carriages and horses, now includes a one car garage and a 2,075-square-foot photographic studio...” says the listing description for the home. This area of the space includes concrete floors, 13-foot ceilings, three skylights, a plethora of natural light, and an outdoor patio that is just one of the many outdoor spaces.

Head to the second level, where an open floorplan spanning 1,675 square feet gives way to a living room with nearly 12-foot ceilings, huge windows that brokerbabble refers to as “a signature from [the home’s] past life,” a sleek open kitchen, a working fireplace, two bedrooms, one of the two half-bathrooms, and a full bathroom with a “one-of-a-kind concrete walkthrough shower.”

The master bedroom resides on the uppermost level and measures 900 square feet, featuring floor-to-ceiling glass walls and three skylights. There are built-in closets “open to an outdoor shower and Japanese-style bamboo garden” and a master bathroom that’s befitted with a bathtub, walk-in shower with a bench, and two skylights. This level also comes with a lounge area that boast a built-in wet bar. A wraparound terrace surrounds most of the top level and even includes a running water fountain.

While there are tons of closets throughout, the basement can be utilized for additional storage space and there is also a laundry room with a washer and dryer.

Asking price for all of this is $5.2 million.
