This Bold and Whimsical SoHo Duplex Designed by Ken Fulk Wants $18M
Welcome to a home that may feel more dream than reality. Designed from top to bottom by Ken Fulk, this duplex in the fashionable SoHo neighborhood of New York City is a fantasy of colors, patterns, metallic finishes, and more. Fulk says that it is “part city townhouse and part country manor house,” but it can be whole yours for $17.995 million.
Famous for designing restaurants and bars such as Carbone Las Vegas, Fulk knows how to create delicious spaces. This 6,014-square-foot condo is filled with historic details along with Fulk’s bold vision. Just look at original barrel-vaulted ceilings. But that’s just the beginning of the tantalizing elements it wears.
Powder blue pops on the lower level, where a great room holds the kitchen, breakfast nook, and living area. Black and white checkered floors, floral fabrics, and oak millwork keep you guessing and wanting more. The spaces feel fresh and fun, not taking themselves too seriously.
Ascending upstairs, the colors become richer and the vibe more formal. This is more “citified” as Fulk puts it, and it’s easy to see the shift. The textures glimmer more glossy and polished, reflecting SoHo’s sophisticated edge while keeping with the whimsical tone. The wet bar, built-in marble buffet, and second kitchen tucked away make it perfect for intimate dinner parties or buzz-worthy events. In other words, the classic SoHo lifestyle.
Sitting in a Beaux-Arts building on cobblestone-clad Wooster Street, this five-bedroom pad is one-of-a-kind. Tal Alexander, Marc Riedel, Oren Alexander, and Jared Schwadron of Douglas Elliman share the listing.
