From the Skinnygirl to the Queen Bey, 195 Hudson Street has won the hearts of quite a few stars, and now the former industrial space has a new unit on the market asking $7.45 million. This bottom floor space offers everything you would want out of an authentic Tribeca loft, with 15-foot ceilings and the building’s signature four columns serving as its anchor. And just like the former home of Bethenny Frankel (her home is currently occupied by her soon-to-be ex-husband while the Skinnygirl house hunts), the columns are masterfully incorporated into the living space.
More than just an “arresting architectural element”, the four massive columns also help divide the main floor into separate living spaces: an eat-in kitchen, living and dining room space, media room, and private office with separate entrance and direct street access.
A staircase with a wrought iron railing leads you to the mezzanine level, which is supported by steel beams, and features wide-plank floors made from reclaimed douglas fir. Up here are the sleeping quarters, consisting of a reading area, the master, and two additional bedrooms. But what sets this space apart is the way it floats over the entertaining space with each bedroom boasting French doors that open to Juliet balconies overlooking the living and dining areas below. (Take a look in our gallery.)
The home also features, huge new thermopane windows, well-preserved original concrete floors, mosaic tile bathrooms, and a giant, steel front door and entrance gallery.
It’s no wonder celebrities like Beyonce and Jay-Z love this place. Among its many perks are a landscaped terrace with Hudson River views and a gas grill, and a private parking garage with remote access from the street to the building elevator.
