47 4th Street is a rare offering - a Jonathan Marvel & Jean Won Mosler designed, 50-ft-wide, mint condition property. Located where Carroll Gardens meets Gowanus, this turn-key opportunity is one of the most magnificent and innovative designer warehouses in all of New York City. This Brooklyn treasure, with its distinctive facade, soaring ceilings, private parking garage, two curb cuts, stunning roof deck and sweeping views, is a one-of-a-kind property for a discerning purchaser.
A rare collection of possibilities is offered by one of the most thoughtful and exceptional rezoning efforts in New York City recent history. While it is extraordinary as a 5,700 sq. ft. turnkey offering, the property now has a buildable square footage of 15,000-18,000 square feet, depending on the use scenario. With new M1-4/R6A Gowanus Zoning approved for the block, those scenarios include live/work, with or without an income component, an investment, or an expansive single-family home.
Upon arrival at Number 47, you will encounter a grand warehouse with a purple brick facade. Enter through a pink door to see the biggest surprise in Brooklyn revealed, a modern and chic designer's paradise. You are greeted by a bright and expansive 90-ft deep ground floor with 17-ft ceilings. The mesmerizing design by Marvel Architects and Maum Design brilliantly retains industrial hints that embrace the rich neighborhood history. An extraordinary 30-ft glass interior open air atrium sits at the heart of the building - a breathtaking architectural centerpiece that floods the space with dramatic natural light and views of the sky. It provides a quiet oasis with a magical secret garden. This atrium connects all the parts of the building and provides interior accessibility through corner glass doors.
As is, Number 47 is a combination of two former warehouses reimagined into a single property divided into three parts.
One side of the building offers a uniquely transformable and massive entertaining, gallery and lifestyle space with a 12-ft glass folding wall, in-floor radiant heat, a Valcucine Italian pantry and island, an elegant powder room, and a 6-ft linear gas fireplace surrounded by an impressive designer tile wall. In the rear of the building exists an industrial style office with 20-ft ceilings, ensuite full bathroom, and a mezzanine loft. The upper-level penthouse boasts a sanctuary-like 1,200 sq. ft. space with 10-ft ceilings, whitewashed oak floors, motorized blackout shades, a huge walk-in closet, a side-by-side washer/dryer, windowed en-suite bathroom with a custom double vanity, smart toilet, heated towel racks, and a radiant floor wet room with a steam shower and a freestanding soaking tub. The luxurious upper-level penthouse offers clear southerly views, stunning sunsets and moonrises experienced on its adjoining expansive terrace.
The other side of the building showcases a state-of-the-art artist studio, workshop and gallery with several large skylights, exposed wood beams, mezzanine, a bathroom with shower, radiant heat throughout, and remote-controlled garage car door with additional security gate. Alternatively, the studio side of the building offers a spectacular white box opportunity that can be configured to your heart's desire.
