It’s always interesting to see how architects and designers outfit their personal homes, and in this case the answer is very lavishly. Jennifer Tonkel, an interior designer at Kemble Interiors, along with her husband Carlos Fierro, bought this 3,650-square-foot loft at 408 Greenwich Street in Tribeca for $7.64 million in 2008, and after decorating it to their hearts’ content, listed it for $10.75 million just about a year ago. The impressive home has now sold for $9.25 million, according to city records released today.
Thanks to its corner location, the home feels extra spacious and boasts huge walls of oversized double-glazed windows. A key-locked elevator opens to a wide entrance gallery, perfect for displaying one’s art collection or serving as a secondary sitting area, which then leads to the living/dining room. This impressive space features 11-foot beamed ceilings, wide-plank walnut flooring, a wood-burning fireplace, and a custom-milled wet bar with Viking wine fridge.
The open loft floorplan and wealth of natural light is warmed up with a rich color palette and plush, textured fabrics. The furniture is rather classic, with contemporary pops here and there to tie together the modern architecture of the residence.
The bright, open, state-of-the-art Boffi kitchen has a 12-foot center island, stainless steel and marble countertops, white lacquer and zebra wood cabinetry, and top-of-the-line appliances. It also features a large, separate pantry that houses a Viking ice-maker and a 100-bottle temperature-controlled Euro Cave wine refrigerator. Off the kitchen is a cozy den/media room, which could also function as a fifth bedroom.
The four bedrooms are split in half between either side of the home. On the east wall are two, both offering en-suite bathrooms with radiant heated floors. On the west side, past a long hallway with floor-to-ceiling closets, are the other two bedrooms, one being the master suite. The romantic master has a separate sitting area with Hudson River views, a huge walk-in closet, and a spa-like bathroom. The guest bedroom comes complete with a custom walnut headboard with built-in bookshelves.
408 Greenwich Street was built in 2007 by renowned architect Morris Adjmi. Though a new building, it blends with its industrial Tribeca surroundings. The nine-story, mixed-use building has ground-floor retail, commercial space, and four large apartments.
