Beatrice Trussardi does much more than sit alongside the runways at Fashion Week. In addition to running the internationally successful, Italian fashion label Trussardi that her late father Nicola Trussardi founded, she heads the Nicola Trussardi Foundation, a nonprofit that promotes contemporary art and culture. And now she can add “New York City homeowner” to her roster of titles.
Ms. Trussardi just snatched up unit 3K at 240 Centre Street, the historic landmark known as the Police Building, for $2,147,500, according to city records. The one-bedroom Nolita apartment is chic and contemporary, and we’d expect no less for such a fashion-forward gal.
The renovated duplex unit is full of light thanks to oversized windows and 16-foot ceilings. But when it’s time for bed, solar, black-out shades do the trick. A free-standing, glass fireplace separates the living room from the kitchen and doubles as additional counter space. Low, built-in shelving wraps around the apartment and makes a perfect display for artwork, of which there is plenty in this home. The sleek kitchen features black cabinetry, open shelving, top-of-the-line appliances, and an adjacent dining area.
Upstairs, the mezzanine bedroom has full-height ceilings and a glass balustrade that makes the room appear to float. The apartment was available fully furnished; do you think Beatrice Trussardi will keep the décor as is, or add her own cutting-edge design?
