Besides being a gorgeous light-filled three-bedroom (with room for a fourth) corner loft in trendy Tribeca, this $4.95 million condominium at 161 Hudson Street is, as the listing puts it, “the epitome of chic downtown style.” Unobstructed sky views, sound-proof windows, central HVAC, a laundry room and a gracious layout with bedrooms on opposite sides for privacy are part of the infrastructure. But when it comes to fixtures, finishes, materials and design, the 2,315-square-foot loft is a perfect opportunity to see today’s top decorating trends–all in one place.
Let’s start with wide-plank Brazilian walnut flooring, as it’s everywhere, then take a look at the enormous corner great room with open views, soaring ceilings, and original columns. Built-in bench crafted from vintage wood? Painted diagonal wall paneling? Custom-crafted copper pipe lighting? An open shelving unit that divides the dining and living areas? All trends present and accounted for.
Tucked into a corner are two work spaces; floor-to-ceiling cabinetry holds an entertainment system and extensive storage.
Moving on to the kitchen we have white-glazed Dutch subway tiled walls (with black grout), open wood-slab shelves, encaustic tile flooring, an appliance garage and a modernist statement faucet (Vola, we think). Yup, all here. Also here are a perfectly nice Viking range and hood, a SubZero fridge, Poggenpohl cabinetry, a Miele dishwasher, microwave and espresso/cappuccino machine and a Gaggenau wine fridge. Adjacent is a convenient powder room/laundry room and, of course, more attractive millwork.
The large master suite is truly a relaxing oasis–and possibly the best trend collection yet: Walls clad in reclaimed wood planks? Check. George Nelson bubble light? Check. Shower with steel-framed casement doors? Check. Slate hex tile flooring? Check. Moody blue-painted accents? Check! Also here are lots of custom closets and remote controlled blackout shades.
On the opposite side of the loft there are two additional generously-sized bedrooms with ample closet space and a large second bath. A quick inventory finds subway tile walls, slate hex tiles, a vintage-style cast iron console sinkand lacquer-painted glass storage cabinets (conspicuously missing: free-standing tub). On-trend though it all may be, we really couldn’t see getting tired of it anytime soon.
Built in 1930, the boutique elevator condominium building offers a part-time doorman, full-time super and a common roof deck.
