As far as Manhattan apartments go, even penthouses, 7,000 square feet is palatial. And with 16 rooms, 13-foot ceilings, and a 2,600-square-foot planted terrace with rooftop kitchen this duplex penthouse takes the cake.
Located at 54 Thompson Street in Soho, the home was featured on HGTV’s “Selling New York.” It was designed by architects Adam Yarinsky and Stephen Cassell of ARO and published on the cover of Interior Design magazine. The mesmerizing penthouse has now sold for an impressive $10.35 million, according to recently released city records.
