Number 47 is one of the most unique offerings in New York City - a 50-ft-wide property designed by Maum Design with architect Jonathan Marvel. Located where Carroll Gardens meets Gowanus, the architect and designer repurposed two warehouses into a stunning two-story property with an unexpected grand and sophisticated interiors as you enter the building through one of the two pink doors. The turnkey property spans 5,782 SF, with potential for future expansion to an impressive 12,500 SF for single-family residential use. With its distinctive facade, soaring ceilings, private parking, two curb cuts, roof deck and sweeping views, it is a one-of-a-kind treasure for the discerning purchaser.

This exceptional property has a rare collection of possibilities, thanks to one of the most thoughtful rezoning efforts in NYC recent history. The new M1-4/R6A Gowanus Zoning Approval for 47 4th street provides endless configurations for the property's use. As is, the buyer can enjoy it as a single-family luxury home with ease of expansion of the lifestyle component in the existing floorplan. As well, because of the rezoning, an unusual opportunity exists to create a larger single-family home or a live/work combination (with or without an income component). With 13,500 to 16,200 gross square footage available, countless residential and mixed-use scenarios can be explored.

Upon arriving at Number 47, you will encounter a striking warehouse with a purple brick facade. On the exterior, the space brilliantly pays to the neighborhood's rich history. Step through a pink door to discover an astonishing interior reveal- a modern and chic designer's paradise. The bright and open ground floor spans an impressive 90 feet and boasts 17-foot ceilings. At the heart of the building, you will find a 30-ft glass interior open air atrium- a breathtaking architectural centerpiece that floods the space with dramatic natural light and views of the sky. It is a quiet oasis with a magical secret garden.

One side of the building offers a uniquely transformable and massive entertaining, gallery and lifestyle space. It features a 12-ft glass folding wall, in-floor radiant heat, a Valcucine pantry and island, an elegant powder room, and a 6-ft linear gas fireplace. In the rear of the building, there's a home office/guest room with 20-ft ceilings and an ensuite bathroom. The upper penthouse is a sanctuary-like space of 1,200 SF with oak floors, motorized shades, a walk-in closet, a washer/dryer, and a windowed en-suite spa bathroom. The bathroom includes a custom double vanity, a smart toilet, heated towel racks, a steam shower and soaking tub. The luxurious penthouse has clear southerly views, stunning sunsets and moonrises from its large adjoining terrace.

The other side of the building showcases a state-of-the-art artist studio, workshop and gallery with large skylights, exposed wood beams, a mezzanine, a full bathroom, radiant heat, and remote-controlled garage car door for interior parking with additional security gate. Alternatively, the studio side of the building offers a spectacular white box opportunity that can be configured with ease to any of your lifestyle or business-related needs (additional bedrooms and bathrooms, a large pool - whatever your heart desires - see proposed floorplans).

The evolution of Gowanus into what has been coined 'The Gowanus Riviera' is in full force under the recent rezoning of Gowanus with a series of nearly complete concierge residential buildings all along the Gowanus canal which are complimented by curated boardwalks, parks, public art and an exciting growth in various amenities and experiential destinations.

The property's location offers the best of Carroll Gardens and Gowanus, with its numerous boutiques, chic restaurants, leafy streets, charming parks and a vibrant creative scene, and multiple schools within walking distance.
