If you’ve always dreamed of interior features like a “dramatic floating staircase rising a full three stories from a custom koi pond,” a dangerously high number of marble-covered surfaces, and lots of shiny lacquered wood, but didn’t want to give up the sophisticated surroundings of Manhattan’s downtown Gold Coast, this triplex penthouse atop the striking 19th century brick building at 11 Vestry Street could be your jacuzzi-positive dream apartment. For $33,000 a month, this super-luxe Tribeca rental has undeniable perks–like four different outdoor spaces with amazing views–and a few opulent additions that are usually reserved for more far-out ‘hoods like Bay Ridge.

A private elevator brings you to the building’s sixth floor (supermodel Kylie Bax sold her funky duplex a few floors below for $3 million in 2013), where this 3,900-square-foot condo begins. That dramatic staircase-koi pond combo greets you along with a wood-burning fireplace “dressed in handcrafted field stone” and lots of marble.

In the kitchen, the listing offers “blonde wood cabinets” (though we don’t see any), granite countertops, marble floors and “grade appliances.” So we’ll just head through these French doors onto the terrace, thanks.

On the second level is a 750-square-foot deck and a second terrace. Also up here are two spacious bedrooms with equally spacious walk-in closets and a full marble bath.

The “decadent master-suite” occupies the entire third floor; There’s a wood-burning fireplace “faced in a striking deep-veined marble.” And, of course, there’s an en-suite marble bath with a steam shower and Jacuzzi tub, plus a two-person walk-in closet. Two skylights bring in lots of light and another terrace offers more breathtaking downtown views and opportunities to escape marble surfaces.

This roof deck looks quite nice for a BBQ feast or a quiet moment once the snow melts–which is perfect, since the apartment will become available in May. The listing suggests that this unique triplex must be seen to be appreciated (though the rent’s gone up from $25,000 in 2014, so it’s appreciated a fair amount on its own). This particular corner of pricey west Tribeca is shaping up to be quite the glittering enclave, with Robert A.M. Stern’s 70 Vestry on the way and the surrounding streets filling up with planned new construction and conversions, adding to the already sought-after neighborhood’s cachet.
