Now this is the type of apartment we would love to be trapped in during a snowstorm. There’s a wood-burning fireplace underneath lofty 16-foot ceilings in this Tribeca penthouse, located at 58 Walker Street, not to mention a big pile of wood to keep the fire roaring. Plenty of leather furniture and exposed brick also help keep this sprawling space, 2,115 square feet over two different floors, feeling cozy. This apartment wouldn’t be so bad in the summer, either, with 1,318 square feet of private roof space.
58 Walker Street was constructed in 1869 and at some point was converted to five apartments over five different floors. At this top-floor apartment, they have done a good job of restoring all the original exposed brick, while adding details like the open staircase, a massive copper kitchen vent that descends from the ceiling, and cool lighting. The open kitchen, located under the lofted second floor, even has an externally-powered indoor grille. (So you can still BBQ during a blizzard!)
This apartment is truly for the exposed brick lover. Two bedrooms, along with two bathrooms, are located on the main floor. They both have views out the window looking north. The master bedroom also comes with a large dressing room.
The open staircase leads up to the lofted second floor, which is totally open to everything below it. The current owners are using it as a “dining loggia” and have outfitted it with a 100 bottle custom wine bin, wine bar, wine refrigerator and half bathroom.
A look inside the nice, big classic bathroom, complete with a clawfoot tub.
Some funky wallpaper adds a hip vibe to this otherwise rustic-feeling apartment.
From the second-floor dining loggia, another open staircase leads you up the the private rooftop terrace. It’s a massive space, with plenty of room for furniture or landscaping. According to the listing, you get views to the north and south that include the Empire State Building and the Woolworth Building. So there’s private outdoor space to enjoy in the summer and a fireplace to keep you warm in the winter? This penthouse is solid year-round.
