Manhattan’s Lower East Side is enjoying a true 21st-century glow-up; this three-bedroom penthouse atop 196 Orchard Street embodies the layers of luxury that now define the storied neighborhood. The 1,925-square-foot condo offers an iconic city perch surrounded by 18-foot ceilings and views of downtown Manhattan through bronze-edged casement windows.
Interiors are the picture of contemporary style, with refined finishes that bring to mind the neighborhood’s industrial past. Concrete ceilings and wide-plank flooring frame loft-like rooms in the home’s main living spaces.
In the open kitchen, bespoke walnut millwork surrounds Nero Marquina marble worktops and Miele appliances. Blue de Savoie marble and nickel Waterworks fixtures bring the same level of luxury to three baths.
Bedrooms have ample closet space. The primary chamber is across the apartment from the remaining two bedrooms for privacy–or an easy commute to your home office.
Behind a facade of bronze-glazed brick and eclectic vertical-style windows, building amenities are as luxurious as the homes within, including a 24-hour doorman and a resident superintendent. A 4,100-square-foot rooftop provides a furnished space for sunbathing or grand-scale entertaining, with a chef’s table and two outdoor kitchens. A 30,000-square-foot Equinox gym is just downstairs, with memberships offered at a discount for residents.
