This 3,162 square-foot three-bedroom loft at 104 Wooster Street hits all the high notes when it comes to just-right modern interior design and what we love about lovely Soho lofts. With interiors, according to the listing, “by the same designer as Barneys,” the apartment last changed hands in 2012 for $5.35 million (below its $5.7M ask) to a partner in a commercial law firm; it looks to have gotten its expertly turned-out design upgrade since then–perhaps part of the reason for the $3M price-bump.
Ascending by key-locked elevator to the fourth floor of this eight-unit boutique condo building on a quintessential Soho block, you’ll immediately notice the light from a wall of windows and the presence of condo comforts like central air, built-in speakers and a home automation system. For celebrity cred, Academy Award-winning director Barry Levinson (“Rain Man,” “Diner,” “Bugsy”) owns a loft two floors below.
The foyer opens to a vast, airy main room filled with “boisterous natural light” and framed by satiny charcoal-stained herringbone wood floors, twelve-foot wood-beamed ceilings and classic loft columns. Chic accents–like a modern white marble enclosed fireplace and custom wood built-ins–take on loft-sized proportions in this room.
Beneath the charming Jet Age explosion of a Sputnik lamp, a custom Henrybuilt kitchen features the same warm modern wood and sleek finishes found throughout the home as well as purposefully-chosen chefs’ tools like Thermador stainless-steel appliances, a custom SubZero fridge and freezer, a Miele dishwasher and a wine fridge. On either side of the kitchen are a large laundry/mud room and a powder room.
In the media area, a partially exposed brick wall punctuates understated geometric wallpaper and more mid-century-esque wood-and-white built-ins.
The master bedroom suite–far enough from the main room for plenty of privacy–offers a custom-designed walk-in closet, two additional oversized closets and a clean-lined contemporary en-suite bath with a his-and-hers marble countertop vanity, walk-in shower and separate deep soaking tub.
Each of the two remaining bedrooms also has an en-suite bath and large custom closets as well as plenty of light.
The iconic cast-iron pre-war building–designed by Theodore de Lemos and A.W. Cordes, the architects who designed Macy’s Herald Square–offers a part-time doorman and concierge services in an enviable downtown spot that reminds us of an older New York as much as modern Soho could, with just about every Manhattan convenience and cultural blessing just outside the door.
