Rare Tribeca townhouse with wine cellar and duplex roof terrace seeks $15M

Just listed for $15 million, this rare Tribeca townhouse was designed by John L. Petrarca, the architect credited with bringing “a modern sensibility” to the neighborhood’s “old blocks,” as his New York Times obituary put it. The seven-story residence at 152 Reade Street is one in a row of three—completed in 2001—that are notable for being “the first new single-family dwellings built in Tribeca in more than a century.” The current owners bought the property in 2005 for $7.4 million and soon embarked on a gut renovation helmed by Philip Koether Architects. Among many upgrades, they built out a temperature-controlled wine cellar in the basement, installed an elevator, and created a two-story roof deck complete with a hot tub.

The first floor is comprised of an open chef’s kitchen, a dressing room, powder room, and laundry room. Up one flight is the living room, which boasts 24-foot ceilings, a full wall of windows, and a wood-burning fireplace framed by marble. Adjacent is a formal dining room with access to a “secluded” outdoor terrace.

The bedrooms (there are five total) begin on the third floor. The bedroom on this level is the second-largest and has an en-suite bathroom and a private Juliet balcony. A full-floor master suite is on the fourth floor, with a large bathroom and walk-in closet. Three additional bedrooms are on the fifth floor. Even though they’re small, some include clever storage solutions and Murphy beds to maximize the available space.

An elevator connects all the floors which is great in terms of convenience, but the Italian marble and iron spiral staircase is a noteworthy architectural highlight. The current owners replaced a wall at the top of the stairs with structural glass as part of their renovation.

The sixth floor contains an “informal entertainment room” which opens to the first level of the duplex roof terrace. There’s a grill, seating, and one flight up, a stainless steel jacuzzi tub perfectly poised for 360-degree views of the skyline.

The cellar floor is primed for wine storage. First, there’s a wine fridge with room for 180 bottles in the recreation room, which also features built-in bookcases and a billiards table. There’s also a vaulted, air-conditioned area to accommodate even larger collections and a sound-proof music room on this level.

On the exterior, the 25-foot wide facade evokes “19th-century loft buildings with red bricks, sweeping stone arches, multipane windows, and cornices,” per the Times, but remains “clearly contemporary, with broad expanses of glass and exposed steel beams.”
