Sales have finally launched at the much-anticipated 52 Lispenard Street, after we’ve spent more than a year drooling over its teaser site. The seven-story structure is a combination of two landmarked 19th century buildings on a short Tribeca street. So far, two of the building’s floor-through apartments—units 2 and 4—are available, asking $6.65 million and $7.5 million. The remaining four apartments include two more full-floor apartments with three to five bedrooms, one triplex townhouse, and one triplex penthouse, with prices ranging up to $11 million.
Here at 6sqft we have a strong appreciation for all kinds of architecture–both old and new; but the truth of the matter is, they just don’t make homes like this anymore. In September 2013 this two-family home at 398 Sterling Place hit the market, asking nearly $3 million. When its price dropped to $2.79 million a month later, the townhouse was quickly snatched up. Now, the building’s 2,480-square-foot lower duplex is back on the market, touting restored original details and a new and improved reverse floor plan, for $2.39 million.
It would be easy to walk right past Pomander Walk on a trip down 95th street, between Broadway and West End Avenue. The quaint little enclave is well concealed by an unsuspecting gate. However, walk through that gate and you’re in for quite a treat. Behind it is one of the most unexpected co-ops on the Upper West Side—an enclave so enchanting that it won the hearts of American treasures like Rosalind Russell, Lillian Gish, and Humphrey Bogart. And right now, one of those co-ops is available for $1.995 million.
The penthouse of one of Manhattan’s most prestigious and unique landmark apartment houses has just hit the market, asking $7.25 million. The one-of-a-kind pad was formerly the squash-tennis court of Kingdon Gould, grandson of the infamous multimillionaire financier Jay Gould, who notably fell from grace for manipulating gold and railroad stocks. Kingdon’s custom-built quarters consisted of a triplex penthouse with a fourth-level painting studio for his mother, and 20 rooms, including a double-height music room.
A loft at the landmarked 53 Crosby Street is back on the market after being listed for $3.35 million just a month ago. However, this time the two-bedroom co-op is available for rent, asking $10,500 per month. The unfurnished space reminds us of a dance studio, with its oversized windows, hardwood floors and interesting choice of mirrored walls in the entertaining space. So, we had to take a look inside. What we found is a nicely renovated, modern loft that has everything you would want out of Soho living… including its location on one of the neighborhood’s most coveted cobblestone streets.
