Have you ever wondered what it would be like to take your friends to the park… by just stepping out onto your rooftop? That’s what this stunning unit at the landmark Brewster Carriage House has to offer. This $9.5 million three bedroom simplex has a lot more to it than its sprawling spacious 2,610 square feet of interior space. It also has an additional 1,800 square feet of rooftop terrace with barbecue… and trees.
Looking at so many beautiful homes can get to be exhausting (not really) so we decided to change things up and show you a new kind of luxury. We’re not quite sure what we want to call it yet, but we’re thinking something like woodsman chic or garage chic. Either way, we’re thinking if the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were real, they would gladly shell out the $1.8 million asking price for this unit at 49 Howard Street.
Sprawling Outdoor Space Beautifully Complements This Wooster Street Penthouse’s Equally Roomy Interior, Wed, July 9, 2014
Let’s see…. charming cobblestone streets, Soho’s artistic vibe, Nolita’s incomparable bakeries and restaurants, or the nearly 2,400 square feet of outdoor space? Yep, it’s hard to pick what would be our favorite part of living at 7 Wooster Street — and we haven’t even made it inside this magnificent penthouse.
Once the key-locked elevator opens into this full floor 4-bed, 3-bath, 2,600-square-foot trophy residence we have even more to add to our list of “favorites”.
When we say “out of this world,” we don’t just mean it’s an amazing architectural feat — this apartment was actually modeled after Spaceship 1 through its technology and methodology. Also known as Luminal Gallery, the loft is the first dedicated video-art gallery in New York City. The 6,000-square-foot space was designed by architectural firm Jendretzki and features organic architecture meant to evoke the future, which is playfully juxtaposed against industrial loft details like cast-iron columns and exposed wood ceiling beams.
Coming on the heels of a rezoning last spring that will yield much more residential and retail development in the area just north of Canal Street, the Hudson Square Connection Business Improvement District embarked on an ambitious $27 million campaign to create more open space and beautify the neighborhood’s streets.
First up was a $200,000 investment at Freeman Plaza West a few months after the City Council approved the rezoning. The vacant property near the entrance to the Holland Tunnel was magically transformed into an unexpected but charming garden respite with the addition of umbrellas, tables, chairs and trees.
Ready for a sale where the space is just as famous as the people involved? We’ve got one for you. This iconic loft at 133 Wooster Street has been featured in the New York Times and was the very spot where the Dean & DeLuca cookbook was created. Well, how did this apartment get to be so special? Because it’s owned by Dean & Deluca co-founder Jack Ceglic.
Out with the old, and in with the new. A recently married Vanessa Carlton has put her two-bedroom Soho loft up for rent, and she’s asking a pretty penny for it, according to the NY Daily News. The 2,500-square-foot apartment, listed by Coldwell Banker Bellmarc’s Lisa Garey, has a vintage appeal that suits the “A Thousand Miles” singer/songwriter nicely. Carlton purchased the loft, located at 182 LaFayette Street, in 2004 for $1.83 million and renovated it to maintain its historic charm while featuring modern-day amenities.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words and we’re inclined to agree. While we love using words to tell you all about some of the most amazing residences on the market, we’re not sure words can quite do this Soho beauty justice.
Located in a landmarked building at 60 Greene Street, with its cobbled stones and quaint charm, this nearly 4,000-square-foot full floor condominium loft not only took our words away, it took our breath away too!
Unusual Bathroom Design May Have You Going Hmmm But the Rest of This $1.6M Soho Loft Will Have You Going Mmmm, Mon, June 16, 2014
Thirteen windows wrapping around three sides of this 1,100 square foot loft means bright and airy in a big way – even the bedroom closet and bathroom are filled with sunlight!
Overlooking two of the building’s three charming courtyards this gorgeous unit at 140 Sullivan Street has a wonderfully open floor plan with extra high ceilings exposing all of the original wood and steel beams, wide plank cherry floors throughout, and built-ins galore. And while a NYC curator created this open concept to merge the aesthetics of uptown chic with the artistic and architectural details of downtown, this home presents its next owner with a virtual clean slate as there is plenty of space to carve out additional bedrooms, an office, even formalize the dining and living areas.
If you’re wondering what to do with that extra $12 million, consider the stunning penthouse triplex at 111 Mercer Street. This condo offers more than gorgeous city views, it practically invites the city in for coffee.
If you’re reading this we’re going to assume we don’t have to tell you this penthouse is flooded with light… unless, of course, you’re blinded by it. The main floor of the 3,500-square-foot ultra chic condo is framed in all glass NanaWalls that open to its expansive terraces, creating the ultimate indoor/outdoor living experience. The living room and dining area opens up to a 1,200-square-foot terrace — or let’s be honest — it’s an outdoor living room. Meanwhile the kitchen has its own terrace complete with an outdoor dining space… and a fireplace… and west facing sunset-ready views… of the Freedom Tower. Want more?
