This three-bedroom loft at 69 Wooster Street is the kind you don’t often see in today’s world of sleek designer spaces. Until 2014, it was the longtime home and personal gallery of prominent art collectors Eileen and Michael Cohen, who had lived there since Soho was, well, Soho. The current owner is a fashion designer who just finished a multi-year renovation adding a layer of one-of-a-kind opulence to an already dramatic space. The home, now on the market for $12 million, has been featured in Architectural Digest and other design publications, and we can see why, with everything from tin ceilings and exposed brick to gold-clad columns, dripping crystal chandeliers, a mirrored wall, and plenty of leather accents.
The sheer lavishness woven through the home’s considered design brings it to a level of opulence that’s rarely this carefully assembled. It’s combined with original bones and authentic loft living for a unique kind of luxury.
The space’s art gallery past is still evident, while the new version combines, as the listing says, “old-world Victorian sensibility with industrial NYC charm.” The decor was, in part, inspired by the interiors at the Hotel Costes in Paris.
Every facet of the home’s interior was meant to stand on its own as a piece of art. Mulitple cavernous entertaining areas include formal living spaces, lounges, a dining and bar area. A gourmet kitchen is separated from the living space by an undulant stainless steel sculpture wall.
Currently set up with three bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths, the home features a master bedroom that also includes an office, library, gym, and spa.
A gold-wrapped master bath shimmers beneath a mirrored ceiling and a golden tub elevates bathing beyond mere luxury. Custom-outfitted closets provide compartments provide a space for everything. This visual feast is almost unbelievably situated within a boutique co-op building on a cobblestoned Soho street.
