Magic on Union Square:

“You won’t believe your eyes

Levitating above Union Square, this spacious, serene duplex is the ultimate hideaway for those in search of tranquility amidst the bustle of Manhattan. Disappear into thin air before remerging into high-ceilinged rooms of exposed brick where bamboo floors and chestnut-hued couches play against burnished steel staircases, and sleek metallic countertops in a sleight of hand as seamless as a French drop. Wave a wand and find the magic of downtown Manhattan right below you.

Wondrous welcome

A New York denizen, your host is a native of the city who has never lost his passion for his home town.

The reveal

Enter this home to find yourself in the grand and luminous living quarters where wall-to-wall windows and century-old brick frame plush white sofas, a reconditioned antique door coffee table and vintage occasional table. Float past verdant house plants and take a moment’s repose in one of a pair of crushed crimson armchairs and matching footrests. Work the room and glide over polished bamboo floors until you reach the large, fully-equipped industrial-style kitchen where you can materialize a meal amidst the gleaming stainless steel countertops and diner-style breakfast bar stools. Above the chestnut couch ride an Indian rope up the floating staircase, and take a soak in a claw-foot bath amid delicately-patterned tiles in one of three bathrooms. Or study a book as you cosy down on the sumptuous king size bed, surrounded by granite-topped side tables and frosted-glass wood panels.

Magic circle

You’ll want to keep a trick or two up your sleeve as you head to the streets. Union Square, a cornucopia of street artists, farmer’s markets and people-watching, is right outside your door. Beyond the square the area is flush with opportunities – iconic sights like the Flatiron and the Empire State Building are all within easy reach. Further west and south, the West Village and Soho offer some of the best eateries, nightspots and boutiques in the whole of the city.”
