Last week we met Lydia, our customer service intern and today we bring to you her personal pick. Lydia has chosen this beautiful apartment in Williamsburg, Brooklyn with the most amazing views of Manhattan.

The penthouse apartment is situated on the picturesque bend of the east river in Williamsburg and boats the most impressive views across Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens you could imagine. You can even see the statue of liberty, the empire state building, the freedom tower and all of the bridges spanning east of the river.

The two bed home does not just have the greatest views in the city; it also houses a chef's kitchen, a spacious master bedroom with home theatre, a grand piano, two outdoor terraces, private urban gardens and a pool! Just minutes away from Manhattan, everything you could desire is easily accessible via bicycle, train or ferry that makes the commute around Brooklyn or to Manhattan. If you muster the strength to leave the apartment, there are two Michelin starred restaurants with in 6 blocks!

Brooke is a nurse and lives in the breath-taking apartment with her husband who is a musician and a photographer. They are an active couple who love to travel and have a passion for good food and good wine. Their American bulldog is their pride and joy, describing the dog as 'our baby girl'.
