If you couldn’t afford the penthouse unit at 153 Chambers Street in Tribeca the first time it hit the market, now it’s back with a nearly $1 million price chop. Last year, the impressive pad hit the market asking $7.25 million and now it’s down to $6.4 million. Most notable about this triplex space are the three different terraces, decked out with a hot tub, hidden outdoor shower, landscaping and impressive views of the Freedom Tower. With summer approaching, these are some of the most envy-inducing terraces we’ve ever seen…
From a keyed elevator entrance, you’re greeted by a large foyer that leads to the living room. The living room (which doesn’t have the soaring ceilings found in the upper floors) does have a cozy fireplace, a skylight and exposed brick. As the listing points out, tons of wall space and custom lighting make this a great apartment for someone with an art collection.
Both the master bedroom and guest bedroom are located on the first floor of the loft, separated by pocket doors. The master has a large open sitting area, separate dressing room with custom fitted closets and a decked-out ensuite bathroom.
A “dramatic sculptural staircase” takes you up to a very cool kitchen that’s flanked on both sides by terrace space. Double-height windows, 20-foot ceilings and massive glass doors on either side make this room as bright and lofty as can be.
From one end of the kitchen, you exit floor-to-ceiling folding glass doors into a landscaped terrace that’s designed for entertaining — there are multiple seating areas, trees, perennial flowers, and custom lighting. At the opposite end of the kitchen, through another glass door, you’re on terrace number two, which faces south and has an Ipe wood deck. Most impressive about this terrace is its sunken hot tub and hidden outdoor shower, which are both surrounded by lush plantings for some privacy.
Once you go back inside — begrudgingly — you can take a staircase up to the last floor, where an additional guest bedroom overlooks all of the greenery, and hot-tubbing, below. And yes, there’s another terrace up here! It faces sound and offers amazing views of the Freedom Tower and Lower Manhattan skyline. Do outdoor spaces get any better than this? The answer is no.
