The floors were made from beams salvaged from the Domino Sugar Factory
A brand new, meticulously detailed Williamsburg townhouse just made its way to the market. The brokerbabble for the four-floored dwelling at 138 North 1st Street claims that the house was crafted from the best materials and to the "highest construction standards." The flooring was apparently manufactured using salvaged beams from the Domino Sugar Factory; its bricks were handmade in Denmark and the windows and doors imported from France.
The four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bathroom home has huge windows, walnut wood cabinets and closets built by Seattle-based designer Henrybuilt, a modern fireplace, and even a skylight. Its primary attention-grabbing detail is the massive wooden and metal staircase that travels up to each floor. The living room has its own wet bar and one of the bathrooms—too fancy for that basic title—has been dubbed the "wet room," with three showers and a freestanding tub. There’s also a laundry room, office space, north and south terraces, and a custom-designed zen garden.
All of this may explain the slightly ridiculous $10 million price tag—making this yet another entrant to the list of Brooklyn's most expensive homes for sale.
