The listing for this 3,000+ square-foot gem at one of downtown Manhattan’s busiest crossroads calls it a “splendid chateau,” and it’s certainly that. The most sparkling element of this rare pre-war condominium penthouse at 10 East 14th Street, asking $6.995 million, may be the 600-square-foot all-glass conservatory leading to 1,300 square feet of magical rooftop garden.
Inside you’ll find a mix of lush and lively, with exposed brick walls, gorgeous hardwood floors, a gas-burning fireplace, custom built-ins, ceiling speakers, a superfancy chef-ready kitchen, a full sized washer and vented gas dryer and an outdoor kitchen on the rooftop terrace. Interiors feature an indulgent mix of texture, pattern and color ranging from Moroccan palace to Parisian chic.
The key-locked elevator opens directly into a breathtaking great room. The kitchen is equipped with two Miele dishwashers, wet bar, wine fridge, double oven, Thermador five-burner gas cooktop, Sub-Zero refrigerator, walnut kitchen cabinets and closets that await the fixings for a feast. A three-seat eat-in island is topped by honed Jerusalem Gold limestone; a custom Anne Sacks mosaic tile backsplash complements a matching hand-painted cherry tree mural. The living and dining spaces possess a wall of beautiful, walnut-framed windows and bookshelves as well as a stone gas fireplace with custom lacquer mantle.
The master suite has both reach-in and walk-in closets, an en-suite bathroom with 12-foot ceilings, heated floor, exposed brick and decorative mosaic tile floors and mother of pearl walls. The second bedroom has a pair of floor-to- ceiling closets and drawers and direct access to a Jack-and-Jill bathroom. The home office/third bedroom features bespoke cherry built-ins, including a cinema center.
The conservatory and private double garden are a peerless pair. The conservatory becomes a second living room, a lounge, a dreamy office or a private nightclub in the sky. Multiple doors access north and south facing gardens where you’ll find a plumbed gas grill, a gas fire pit, a sink and fridge, a timed irrigation system, custom furniture and storage, a pair of pergolas, and an elaborate lighting system for when it’s time to take the celebration out of doors.
