Prime Tribeca Duplex Penthouse with Verdant Terraces Wants $14M

With summertime nearly upon us, buyers may be starting to virtually scope out homes that are ideal for lounging in the sun, gardening, or dining alfresco. For anyone who has $13.995 million to spare, this duplex penthouse at 161 Hudson Street in Manhattan is a perfect city home for all seasons. With multiple terraces, the Monique Gibson-designed Tribeca spread seamlessly stirs city living with an abundance of breezy outdoor space.

Sharing the top floor with another penthouse, the unit spans 6,280-square-feet and includes five bedrooms and five full bathrooms. Moving through the foyer’s set of steel and glass French doors, the 37-foot corner living room appears first, lit by 8 oversized windows and overlooking St. John’s Park. The kitchen took notes regarding scale, a breathtakingly black (with blackboard-painted backsplash) haven for any new owner who loves to cook.

Continuing through the luxurious penthouse, a casual living room leads right out to the first verdant terrace—landscaped to perfection and sublimely set up for everyday enjoyment. Higher into the sky, the private rooftop observation terrace above offers 360-degree views of the city and space to plant or simply relax.

The views looking inside are just as captivating since Gibson’s use of color comes alive in the radiance of the natural light. A colorful library with a large skylight shines with teal built-ins and plush orange armchairs.

Leonard Steinberg, Herve Senequier, Amy Mendizabal, and Calli Sarkesh of Compass have the dreamy NYC listing.
