“Nestled on a prime residential block in SoHo awaits this truly once in a lifetime penthouse offering. Previously a raw loft space, architect Edward Siegel (partner at AD100 firm Cooper, Robertson & Partners) and Ernest de la Torre (Elle Décor Top 25 designer), have remarkably transformed this impressive duplex home. Featured in Architectural Digest, the design team seamlessly blended East-Asian inspired Midcentury modernism with a touch of Art deco glamour – a unique fusion of style that is beautifully reflected throughout the three bedroom, two full and two half bathroom residence with four private terraces.
The experience of visiting Penthouse B begins upon entering the gracious walnut-paneled foyer, which includes a concealed entrance to a powder room. Lustrous dark stained white oak floors continue into the great room; a sprawling entertaining space where the focal point centers around the stunning, wood burning fireplace wall clad in white gold quartzite. Further enhancing the visual aesthetic of the space is a row of columns, uniquely covered in walnut with blackened steel rivets complemented by soaring 11’2 ceiling heights. The east-facing wall of Moduline windows and French doors opens onto the 528 square-foot lower terrace from which a view of One World Trade Center is perfectly framed. A wet-bar outfitted with Dornbracht sink fittings, stainless steel countertop, and glass shelving completes this dynamic and expansive room. The kitchen is truly a chef’s dream with a Viking range, vented Viking hood, Northland refrigerator, two Bosch dishwashers, walnut cabinets, stainless steel countertops, and Hansgrohe sink fittings. Entirely versatile, the kitchen can be closed off from or opened on to the great room via a custom designed shoji-inspired grillage screen. This floor also houses a guest bedroom, study (convertible third bedroom) and full bathroom -which is easily closed off for privacy by the sliding pocket doors.
A Jerusalem Gold Stone staircase leading from the great room to the floors above is similarly dramatic and sun-flooded, featuring Empire State Building views and an extraordinary custom wall covering spanning three stories high. This first landing leads to the home’s second powder room, 430 square foot hot tub terrace with two private outdoor showers, and expansive master suite. The sumptuous walnut-paneled master suite is filled with light from floor-to-ceiling windows facing south and east, while the surrounding 1,145 square foot private garden enclosed by mature hedges ensures maximum privacy. Thematically, the master bathroom continues with Jersalem Gold Stone featuring custom-designed cabinets, Robern mirrors and Dornbracht Tara fixtures. A large windowed walk-in-closet, cozy siting area complete with projector screen and surround sound system make this master retreat one to rival.
The upper roof terrace offers an additional 637 square feet of entertaining space high above the excitement of SoHo below. With a second outdoor wood burning fireplace, stainless steel wet-bar with dual refrigerators, and 360-degree views of New York City, this terrace provides a serene, landscaped retreat. Completing this masterpiece residence are the Crestron and smart technology systems which add superb convenience for climate control, electronic shades, lighting and audio visual throughout. Additionally, the unit comes with multiple private basement storage areas, and a custom built 1,070 bottle temperature controlled wine cellar with additional crate storage.
The Soho Gallery Building, built in 1900, was the first and most prominent gallery building in SoHo. Once home to art dealers Sonnabend and Leo Castelli, this was where one came to see the shows of artists like Jasper Johns and Roy Lichtenstein in the early years. Today, 420 West Broadway is a 7-story, 9-unit co-operative building that was converted in 2000. The building offers dual entrances from West Broadway or Thompson Street as well as a doorman from 7a-11p on weekdays and 8a-8p on weekends.”
