When you are on the market for an apartment north of US$10million, you are the kind of person that has seen it all and may be difficult to impress. It will take more than floor to ceiling windows, gleaming kitchens and spacious master suites to dazzle you.
But this recent listing for a New York City penthouse may just make you want to consider making it a home or a pied a terre. For starters, it had graced the cover of Architectural Digest after a meticulous and a contemporary update from the brilliant designer Thomas O’Brien.
Then there is the space itself, which boasts of a rare rotunda just off of the foyer: a special oak paneled room with a 25-foot high domed ceiling capped by a stained glass skylight. It is a show stopping space very seldom seen in apartments. It leads to the sun-filled extra large great room and a white kitchen that can be open or closed via accordion doors.
There are two bedrooms. The master suite includes an office, a spacious walk-in closet and a generous bathroom with walls and floors clad in sumptuous marble. Throughout the space are original millwork like dentil moldings, paneled columns with acanthus leaf capitals and fluted pilasters.
The apartment, located at 260 West Broadway in Tribeca, has approximately 3,777 square feet and has an asking price of US$14.8million.
It is listed with Corcoran Group thru Andres Perea Garzon, APG@corcoran.com.
