$8M Tribeca Penthouse Is a Downtown Dream With a Dramatic Staircase and Heavenly Sunsets

If the address at 16 Debrosses Street sounds familiar, perhaps it’s because the same Tribeca loft building was home to a young Lena Dunham, whose artist parents owned–and sold for $6.25 million in 2014–a duplex loft on the fourth floor. Dunham’s first film, “Tiny Furniture,” was filmed in the space.

While that lovely and artsy loft may have been one kind of downtown dream, this tricked-out triplex penthouse, on the market for $7.995 million, is definitely another. Its 3,324 square feet may offer plenty of room for art, but this dressed-to-impress space seems better suited to entertaining and admiring the sunset against the skyline, from the Freedom Tower to the Hudson, from floor-to-ceiling windows and two separate terraces.

The south penthouse sits on the fifth, sixth and seventh floors of this seven-unit boutique condominium building. Beginning on the fifth is the “entertaining space,” with enough going on to be an apartment in itself, though the drama of 23-foot ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows will definitely make an impression on your guests.

The living, dining, library and kitchen spaces are on this floor, and one of the home’s three bedrooms. Positioned for plenty of attention is a dramatic stainless steel, copper and hardwood spiral stair leading to the rest of the penthouse.

The sunny Poliform kitchen boasts a Lacanche range, a Traulsen refrigerator, Asko dishwasher and Vola fixtures.

The spacious master suite offers the fully-outfitted walk-in closet one would expect; there’s also a cozy red-brick gas fireplace. The brick, a bit unexpected here, reminds us of the neighborhood’s loft origins.

The ensuite master lavatory is both luxurious with high-end materials and fixtures and stylishly minimal.

In addition to the dramatic entertaining space, the apartment’s two terraces definitely make the space unforgettable, with breathtaking sunset views of One World Trade Center and the Hudson River.

As you’d imagine, the home has daily comfort covered with a three-zone A/C system, a washer/dryer, a Lutron lighting and window shade system and two gas fireplaces.

The building is situated in what was until recently an elegant but quiet enclave on the border of Tribeca and Soho, just south of Hudson Square; though it remains a coveted address, the surrounding area is experiencing something of a new construction boomlet of luxury condominiums and hotels.
