When a listing is advertised as having a “Soho House meets The Standard Hotel design motif,” we already know who the target audience is. But just to be sure, an accompanying video features a pair of bed-headed hotties–one of whom is the listing broker–who would look right at home at either of those establishments as they frolic about the apartment in a steamy state. The smitten pair caress the home’s custom fixtures and invite the viewer to imagine a puzzlingly effort-free existence in this chic $1.495 million sixth-floor co-op at 303 Mercer Street‘s Snug Harbor.

Though it’s set within a pre-war building, this sleek and supersexy 920-square-foot pad has been updated and customized, offering a wealth of comforts and high-tech perks. A spacious living and dining room gets plenty of natural light from two oversized arched windows; exposed brick frames dark-stained hardwood floors; reclaimed vintage radiators provide “a nod to the building’s industrial history.”

303 Mercer Street Kitchen 1

The corner kitchen gets top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances like a Miele dishwasher, Wolf range, SubZero fridge, and wine fridge. Marble counters complement Soho House-worthy custom cabinetry (which, in fact, was made by the same craftsmen as the high-profile members’ club).

303 Mercer Street Closet Detail

In the bedroom you’ll find three custom closets, including a California walk-in. The bathroom boasts “weekend-in-the-Hamptons style” (and also boldness), with a deep soaking tub and lighting designed by the fellow who did the Standard Hotel’s. Central air conditioning keeps the rooms cool and the residents from overheating.

303 Mercer Street Stairs

The central staircase is a “focal point and work of art,” with clever storage under its lower half and floating treads above.

Upstairs, a lovely 825-square-foot roof deck would get anyone hot and bothered, so it’s good that there’s a cool outdoor shower. Lined with reclaimed cypress, this private oasis offers great neighborhood views and plenty of space for entertaining. Vintage lighting lends an elegant glow, while a full irrigation system keeps the landscape lush.

303 Mercer Street Dining

The apartment is fully wired, including a Lutron smart system and a Bang & Olufsen sound system that extends to the roof deck. QuietRock sheetrock insulates the home from any unwanted noise.

303 Mercer Video 8

Consisting of three turn-of-the-century industrial buildings reborn as modern loft homes, the Snug Harbor complex offers a 24-hour doorman and live-in superintendent, in the heart of the Village with its prized historic blocks, restaurants, shops and proximity to everything downtown Manhattan offers.
