The Very Essence of Soho

The Very Essence of Soho (1)

This sophisticated apartment is located in Soho, New York City, New York.

It has 4 Beds and 5 Baths and covers an area of 7,500 square feet.

It sold for $26.58 million in April 2014.

The Very Essence of Soho:

“Never before has a penthouse loft come to the market that combines indoor and outdoor living, the very essence of Soho, with the architectural proportions, natural light and unprecedented level of finishes and features as this magnificent home. Designed by Piero Manara & Debla Manara-Berger of Casamanara in direct collaboration with the owner, this unique property makes for epic, collector-quality real estate.

The discreet elevator opens to a gracious wood-paneled entry leading to the expansive 65 x 40 foot living room featuring up-lit original cast-iron columns and ceilings that soar from 16 feet up to 22 feet under the light-infusing skylights. Massive windows facing south and west add even more light and create the perfect picture frame of the new Freedom Tower. A cavernous wood-burning fireplace is finished with polished Eramosa marble with a honed Cohare marble hearth. Adjoining the glamorous dining area is a 1,500-bottle glass-encased, climate controlled wine cellar including a Sub Zero fridge for wine and champagne. The Media room is unlike any other with plush, upholstered stadium seating, dramatic cove lighting and ultra-suede lined ceilings and walls to make viewing the large projection screen all the more pleasurable. This Cinema experience with its Dolby 10.1 Surround sound is but a small part of the extensive, fully integrated Savant A/V systems throughout the apartment.

The Bulthaup kitchen in grey aluminum with Carrara marble counters and custom built sink is expertly equipped with Gaggenau, Sub Zero and Miele appliances including built-in coffee maker, instant-hot and filtered water and a large pantry. A dumbwaiter services the rooftop kitchen and entertaining space and there is direct staff access through the laundry room that houses an oversized washer and dryer with a large sink and Corian counter top.

A 30 foot tall glass-peaked bulkhead houses the impressive illuminated stairwell that leads up to the mezzanine floor housing an office and bedroom suite. An additional flight of stairs whisks you up to the rooftop terrace: the landscaped terrace spans approximately 4,200sf with gracious covered seating and dining areas and a fully equipped outdoor kitchen. The floor surfaces are covered in Ipé wood decking, pavers and simulated lawn while the walls are clad with Balinese stone, Ipé wood and copper. The 360º views from the terrace allow you to view both the Empire State Building and the Freedom Tower simultaneously from under a Boffi outdoor shower.

The sumptuous Master Suite is outfitted with silk carpeting and a lavish white oak custom-milled walk-in closet and vault. An en suite bathroom features a soaring octagonal skylight that hovers over book-matched Gaudi slab marble floors, a freestanding Oceanus soaking tub by Tyrell & Laing and a white Onyx lined double shower ‘room’ with rain-head shower. The three additional bedroom suites are equally impressive and complemented by an exercise room, a housekeeper/massage room and a spa bathroom accommodating a 6-person steam room with Kohler Aroma-therapy and Chroma-therapy via a 100-head fibre-optic lighting system integrated into the mosaic tiled barrel ceiling.

White oak hardwood floors feature throughout the apartment with many walls finished in a creamy-white venetian plaster. The sophisticated HVAC systems, motorized shades, intercom, Lutron lighting, Honeywell Security and A/V systems are integrated into the Savant system and controlled via iPad’s mounted to discrete magnetic wall docks.

The checklist of detailing that has been installed into this property, from the structural to the mechanical and cosmetics is astounding: this is a penthouse of rare distinction, seamlessly balancing the desire for grand entertaining space with the unequivocal demands of an elegant home. Simply put, it re-defines the epitome of ‘Loft living’ real estate in Downtown Manhattan.”
