Compromise is so overrated. Why not just have it all? Well, when you live half a block from New York City’s most iconic park and equally close to the city’s cultural hub, having it all is more than just a dream. It’s a reality. And it appears that two New Yorkers have decided it’s a reality they want a piece of, because according to city records, they just paid $6 million for the Liberty Lofts Penthouse 9B.
Soaring 12-foot beamed ceilings and gigantic windows highlight the open living and dining rooms, along with the gourmet Poggenpohl kitchen. The 2,337-square-foot, three-bedroom home has a 415+ square-foot master suite with a giant walk-in closet and a 250+ square-foot bathroom. And this bathroom is more than just the size of an NYU student’s dorm room. It also has a soaking tub, steam shower, and sauna. Add heated floors to the equation and we know where the new owners will be hiding out on a cold winter’s night.
In fact, there’s no shortage of high tech features in this lovely loft. The home is outfitted with a Crestron automated system to control its Bang and Olufsen sound system, Lutron lighting, electric window treatments, and a retractable projector screen. The new owners will also enjoy all the advantages of living in a full-service, white-glove building in walking distance from shopping, restaurants, and more. Now all they have to do is decide whether they want to go to Central Park or Lincoln Center today.
Interestingly enough, the site of the Liberty Lofts condominium was once the home of Liberty Storage Warehouse, which displayed a 37-foot-tall copper replica of the Statue of Liberty. That might explain why this residence is so dedicated to flaunting the best of the best. Let freedom ring.
