@DouglasElliman smacked down the competition to be the winner of this week's #housepornthurs contest with this immaculate white penthouse in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, N.Y. Those amazing views of the iconic Williamsburg Bridge and the Manhattan skyline would win anyone over! We do want to give props to the runner-up, @BrandonRSwanson. He pitched a totally rad hobbit-like dome home in Goleta, Calif., which got us really excited. Better luck next time!
Back to our winner: Walls of glass line the 3,198-square-foot Williamsburg penthouse, and they also lead to a giant wraparound terrace. There, you'll feel like you're on top of the world (or at least the Big Apple) as you lounge and enjoy some of the most magnificent views that you can find in New York City. The loftlike space has a grand living and dining room with fireplace, three bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. There's a separate wing for the master suite, which has a marbled, windowed bathroom dripping in luxury and two walk-in closets. Still not enough? Hopefully, the study with its own terrace and a powder room will sell you in these gorgeous digs.
If you're a bit of a socialite, then this place is in the perfect location. Some of Brooklyn's trendiest restaurants and high-end shops are just steps away. And for the commuter, convenience is key, and this place is close to subways and a 15-minute water taxi to Manhattan. The building has concierge service, glass elevators and a common roof deck.
