When this little gem showed-up in my in box, I immediately started thinking of reasons to move to Brooklyn. This incredible 800 square foot modern apartment is located in the Dumbo neighborhood of Brooklyn and it’s owner, Russell P. Granger, has created one of the most beautiful and functional cat-oriented designs I’ve ever seen. Russell is a design professional who obviously adores his two cats, Dodger and Oliver. He custom designed all the cat-friendly features in the apartment just for them. The three have enjoyed living there since the building first opened, but the apartment is now on the market. For $679,000 it could all be yours, including the built-in cat accommodations. And for a bit more, you can even keep all the uber modern furniture!
You can get all the details about this amazing place at www.dumbodesignerdwelling.com, but here are highlights of some of my favorite cat features:
The living room includes a custom wall-mounted system of cabinets and drawers that allows kitties to climb and perch, leading them all the way up to a carpet covered catwalk at ceiling height.
The catwalk wraps around the living room and goes through the wall and into the top of a closet to a secret hideaway. Another feature I love is the floor to ceiling sisal covered scratching and climbing pole that is mounted with beautiful stainless steel hardware. The window ledges are also fitted with carpet tiles so the cats can enjoy a beautiful view of the city.
Modern cat items like the Itch wall scratchers from Square Cat Habitat are strategically placed throughout the residence, serving as functional art. And of course the cats have their own private bathroom inside a beautiful high-end modern bench that has been modified to conceal the cat box.
