This Is What a $36.5M Penthouse in Downtown Manhattan Looks Like
Downtown Manhattan’s artistic and fashionable sensibilities are on full display in this Lafayette Street penthouse, now listed for a mighty $36.5 million. Sitting between the high-end neighborhoods of SoHo and Nolita, it encompasses over 8,000 square feet of indoor/outdoor living, including a 2,000 square foot wraparound terrace. Impeccably designed by Fox-Nahem Associates, this is NYC real estate eye candy at its finest.
Although the Puck Building was built between 1886 and 1893, this penthouse atop it is not afraid to stand out with a forward-thinking vision. Each room feels like it could belong to a different mood, all with unique accents and flair.
The foyer opens to barrel-vaulted brick ceilings, then a long gallery brings you to the exuberant great room with an earthy palette, metalized wood ceilings, and tall black-paned windows. From here, you can walk out to the elegant and wide terrace or take in city views from the comfort of your couch.
Moving to the kitchen, the chef’s haven features pearlized brick barrel-vaulted ceilings, custom cabinetry, and top-of-the-line appliances. Right next to it, the bold at-home bar could fit seamlessly into any trendy SoHo restaurant around the corner. In this era of remote living, it doesn’t hurt that there are further specialty spaces, like the home office and gym.
Far from cramped, the expansive penthouse features four bedrooms, with the primary suite looking like a five-star getaway. Natural light creeps in through the east-facing windows and falls onto blackened steel, bronze, and oak finishes, flowing into the two separate luxury bathrooms as well as two separate closets.
Even though the penthouse will not come furnished, the current decor can provide plenty of inspiration for the affluent future buyer. Dana Power and Max Nehrig of The Corcoran Group hold the listing.
