It’s pretty rare that the bathrooms in an apartment are just as photogenic as the rest of the place, but every single space in this Soho loft is colorful, full of patterns, and intentionally playful. And it’s no surprise considering the 6,000-square-foot condo was designed by Ken Fulk, who counts among his projects Major Food Group’s top restaurants, including Carbone in Miami, Sadelle’s in Soho and Vegas, and the Crown Club at Barclays Center. Fulk describes the five-bedroom duplex as “part city townhouse and part country manor house.” Located at 151 Wooster Street, it’s on the market for $17,995,000.

The duplex home has four bedrooms plus a home office, as well as a two-car driveway and a fenced-in backyard with both a deck area and a faux grass lawn. With 2,448 square feet of interior space and another 1,413 square feet outside, the home is asking $4 million.

And in addition to three balconies, the duplex unit also has an 822-square-foot rooftop cabana complete with a full outdoor kitchen. It’s for sale asking $8,250,000.
