Top-Priced Home in Brooklyn Features Four Clocks

BROOKLYN, N.Y. ( TheStreet) -- For $25 million, this Brooklyn penthouse offers skyline views, a glass elevator and a deck. More importantly, its four gigantic clocks will ensure the owner never gets out the door late again.

The Clocktower, a three-story home perched atop a 95-year-old building in Brooklyn's Dumbo neighborhood, located on the East River between the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges, is listed for more than twice the price of the most expensive home ever offered in that borough. The 7,000-square-foot penthouse, known for its four clocks, features a panoramic view of New York's iconic sights, including the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building and the Manhattan skyline.

This Brooklyn penthouse features four 15-foot clocks.

"The clock tower, because of its unique and bizarre features and its incredible view, is probably one of the most spectacular things in real estate one would ever see," says Asher Abehsera, vice president for Two Trees Management, which developed the property and is overseeing its sale. "We've been working on this space for a number of years now and every time I walk in, it is just, 'Wow.'"

The Clocktower building was previously the site of a cardboard factory. In 1998, it was divided into 124 condominium units. David Walentas, a developer and principal at Two Trees, later designed and renovated the triplex.

The 3,000-square-foor main floor features a living space capped by 16-foot-high ceilings. The second floor has three bedrooms and a pedestal bathtub in the master bathroom that overlooks the Manhattan skyline. A glass elevator travels among the unit's three floors, alongside a glass and wood staircase. The fourth floor includes a deck and a half-enclosed, temperature-controlled sky box.
