An empty corner lot in one of the most sought after neighborhoods in the city? Now that doesn’t come along every day. When presented with this rare blank slate in 2012, the architects at Kohn Pederson Fox went to work creating an elegant, contemporary building that blends seamlessly with its SoHo-Cast Iron Historic District environs.
The result: a luxurious, window-filled residential condominium at 27 Wooster Street in Soho, complete with Thomas Juul-Hansen-designed interiors, a host of upscale amenities, and — wait for it — parking.
While the first two units hit the market in April, the piece de resistance duplex penthouse was biding its time – until now. And we are going to show you why this $28.5 million stunner at at the corner of Grand and Wooster Streets was worth the wait.
Let’s start with the 75 windows on the lower level, and add to that the 13 all-glass sliding doors on the upper level that gives the phrase “bathed in sunlight” a whole new meaning. Of course, even though this home truly is “bathed in sunlight”, simply step out onto the private 3,100-square-foot blue-stone paved terrace if you actually want to feel the warmth on your skin. Getting too hot for you? Then jump into the 33-foot-long swimming pool to cool off while surrounded by magical skyline views.
And we can’t forget to mention the incredible living room — its walls are floor-to-ceiling windows, giving one the feeling that all of the city is your stage. With such spectacular views from every corner, you’re almost forgiven if you miss the marble clad fireplace vying for your attention.
The gourmet kitchen features handcrafted cabinetry by Smallbone of Devizes, marble countertops, Wolf cooking appliances including double ovens and a warming drawer, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, and a Miele dishwasher.
An enormous master suite comes complete with a sumptuous master bathroom containing marble slab floors and walls, bleached zebrawood cabinetry, a Toto Neorest toilet, Lefroy Brooks fixtures, and double rain-shower heads with a steam-shower.
With four additional bedrooms and expandable, smart-home technology, this gorgeous 6,700-square-foot penthouse checks off all the boxes for luxury city living — including a private parking space!
