Federico de Vera is known in New York for his eponymous Soho store, a museum-worthy space filled with artifacts that include everything from 18th-century religious figures to Victorian insect samplers, as well as his A-list clients that include Steve Jobs, Hillary Clinton, Anne Hathaway, and Donatella Versace. According to public records, he is the owner of this gorgeous art-filled one-bedroom apartment at the 20 Pine Street condo in the Financial District. After buying it for $1.1 million in 2008, it’s been listed for $1.4 million. The high-ceilinged pad, with an open living and dining space, offers the perfect palate for another buyer who wants to fill it with unique decor.
You enter through a wide gallery, perfect for displaying artwork. The apartment covers 1,225 square feet under 10-foot ceilings.
The gallery passes a home office–with a custom built-in desk and floating aluminum shelves–and opens into the apartment’s great room. The lofty space boasts an open kitchen on one side and two large windows on the other, bringing in western light. The apartment’s been outfitted with state-of-the-art systems and custom design elements throughout, the listing says.
The dark wood open kitchen featured top-of-the-line appliances, sleek floor-to-ceiling cabinetry, and a concealed washer/dryer system.
The master bedroom, located on the opposite side of the apartment, has a wall of massive closet space surrounded by mirrors. A low platform bed accentuates the ceiling heights.
The master bathroom boasts a deep soaking tub, large vanity, and elegant stall.
20 Pine is a gorgeous prewar building converted to condos, and today it holds all the bells and whistles, including a full-time doorman, concierge, valet service, fitness club, yoga studio, indoor lap pool, and spa. A nice building for a nice apartment!
