Oh, wait. They’re all gone. But whatever, the website for Wythe Lane — a cluster of six townhouses at Wythe Avenue and South 4th Street — notes that Williamsburg “is now home to multiple major businesses including international media group Vice, and eCommerce giant Amazon. It is also well served by national brands including Whole Foods, J.Crew, and SoulCycle.” (To be fair, Smorgasburg and Nitehawk are also name-checked.)
According to the selling copy, each of the five-floor townhouses boasts an amount of space that’s a “rarity” in Williamsburg, “where the opportunity to own a nearly 3,800 square foot self-contained property has not been possible until now.” Buy #3 — which just hit the market — and you’ll get four bedrooms, three baths, two “powder rooms,” private parking, a private garden and a roof deck. You can enter your home through a leafy mews (fancy word for private alley) and then put your feet up in front of the 52″ gas fireplace.
The building is made from coal-fired Danish bricks and according to the website, “the exposed concrete ceilings display the grain of the rugged wooden planks used to form them, a reference to the industrial history of this part of Williamsburg.” (An industrial history that is, of course, fading: the townhouses are being built on a former scrap metal yard.)
The homes (which are going for around what the splashy, 3,200-square-foot penthouse apartment in the Gretsch building went for last year) are part of a new wave of Brooklyn townhouses. And they aren’t waiting around for buyers. According to a press release, three of the six units have already been sold.
If you just won the lottery (no, not the affordable housing lottery — the lottery lottery) and wanna snag the fourth, here’s the listing.
