Matt Damon Is the Buyer of the Most Expensive Apartment Ever Sold in Brooklyn
The actor's triplex unit is the highest price paid for residential real estate EVER in Brooklyn, New York.
It's apparent Matt Damon knows what the rest of us who live across the bridge know — Brooklyn is the best New York borough! The star of too many Jason Bourne movies to even count recently plunked down a record-shattering sum — $16.74 million dollars! — for a 6,218-square-foot penthouse apartment atop the newly refurbished Standish apartment building in Brooklyn Heights.
Damon's expansive unit comprises of the top two stories of the building along with the roof, which is a good thing since the views of New York Harbor are pretty spectacular. The apartment comes equipped with six bedrooms — more than enough space to handle Damon and wife Luciana Barroso’s brood of four.
Though details about the interiors of the triplex have not been revealed, images on the developer’s website provide a hint of what to expect — luxury at its finest. Let’s take a look.
Formerly the Standish Arms Hotel, the building was recently converted into a full-service luxury condominium. It provides a host of amenities, including concierge services. Matt Damon's triplex unit is the highest price paid for residential real estate in Brooklyn.
The apartments at the Standish feature wide-plank Austrian white oak flooring, arched windows, and loft-like interiors.
Kitchen finishes include Italian Cararra marble countertops and custom-designed cabinetry along with top-of-the-line appliances.
Decadent bathrooms feature rain showers, brass fixtures, and travertine and mosaic accents.
One of the taller structures in Brooklyn Heights, the apartment provides breathtaking views of the New York Harbor and the Manhattan skyline.
