Jewelry Designer Jen Insardi’s Totally Transformed Tribeca Gem Seeks $8M
Not all that glitters is gold, but this apartment’s simple yet shimmering presence is impossible to deny. It merges minimalist principles with pops of glamour and belongs to a jewelry designer rising star. Jen Insardi, this year’s Mort Abelson New Designer of the Year, took the Tribeca condo down to the studs to give it a complete makeover and turn it into her family’s Manhattan home base. Now spending much more time in Nashville, Insardi has listed her precious NYC pad for $7.995 million.
Two years and $2 million went into the 415 Washington Street unit’s all-encompassing renovation. The jewelry maven reflects on the endeavor, “I knew I wanted the home to provide a warm and soothing environment for my family, however, I did not want it to lack in sophistication, refinement, and the use of luxurious materials. The design had to be elevated and simultaneously not fall down the rabbit hole of appearing like every new development project.”
Indeed, though luxurious, the rooms feel livable and easy. Just take the custom-designed 300-bottle temperature-controlled wine cellar off the crisp kitchen. It exudes a contemporary sleekness but nods to the age-old rustic nature of a wine cellar, encased in smoked glass and painted cork wallpaper.
Strolling through the 2,830-square-foot gem, it’s truly the material choices and finishes that define the spaces. You’ll find Siberian Russian white oak flooring throughout, quartzite Madreperola imported from Antolini, Italy in the kitchen, German painted steel sinks, Dornbracht fixtures, a Hansgrophe overhead water sculpture, and more. Insardi specifically drew inspiration from two design cultures, Japan and Milan, to create the clean yet rich atmosphere.
A design lover’s ideal Tribeca apartment, the four-bedroom spread is listed with SERHANT.
