From the mother-of-pearl shower with aromatic steam to the vaulted mahogany master closet, this dark and luxurious lair is stocked from stem to stern with custom perks that go way beyond the $7.9 million loft’s private key-locked elevator and smart home system. Located in a classic pre-war Soho loft building at 459 West Broadway, the 3,150-square-foot space is even outfitted with a secret home gym hidden behind a moving bookcase.
Once your private elevator assures you that you’ve arrived, you will have actually arrived in the glossy oak herringbone-floored gallery that precedes the home’s massive living and entertaining space.
Four oversized windows and five cast iron columns join a marble fireplace, mahogany custom millwork and the merely-mortal exposed original brick that gives the average loft its charm.
The loft’s kitchen is dressed to kill with Miele, SubZero, and Wolf appliances that include a 48-inch range with a built-in grill and griddle, and both steam and speed ovens. You won’t be surprised to find a separate beverage zone with a built-in coffee maker, a second dishwasher, an ice maker, a wine refrigerator and refrigerated drawers.
The master suite boasts another stone fireplace and a masterful vaulted mahogany master closet with not one but two separate dressing areas.
The master bath is a hedonist’s dream complete with mother-of-pearl shower, two built-in benches, aromatic steam, hidden speakers, a soaking tub, a built-in makeup vanity and “his/her controls” for the Crestron smart home system.
The home gym is, as the listing puts it, “quietly hidden” behind a moving bookcase outfitted with a ballet barre. Also quietly hidden is a mirror television.
We’re really seeing this luxurious loft as an adults-only affair, but we’re not even surprised to find this luxurious kiddies’ corner complete with dual mahogany cribs and glam retro wall treatment.
