A rare opportunity to own one of downtown Manhattan’s largest loft penthouses. The Piero Manara & Debla Manara-Berger, of Casamanara, designed apartment offers an expansive 7,500 sq ft interior with a gracious 4,200 sq ft of unique covered and uncovered outdoor terrace space and sweeping 360 degree views. The boutique building of just 9 units allows for the utmost in privacy with a discreet elevator that opens to an impressive wood-paneled entry leading to a spectacular 65 × 40 foot living room featuring up-lit original cast-iron columns and ceilings that soar from 16' to 22' under light-infusing skylights. Massive windows facing south and west add even more light to shine through, creating the perfect space to entertain with views of the Freedom Tower perfectly framed. A nearly 6-foot-high wood-burning fireplace is finished with polished Eramosa marble and a honed Cohare marble hearth. The Bulthaup kitchen in grey aluminum features Carrara marble counters, a custom-built marble sink and is expertly equipped with Gaggenau, Sub Zero and Miele appliances including built-in coffee maker, instant-hot and filtered water and a large pantry. White oak hardwood floors throughout lead you to a spacious master suite, along the way pass by venetian plaster finished walls in a soft white. The luxurious Master Suite offers silk carpeting and a beautifully outfitted white oak, custom-milled walk-in closet and vault that keeps everything neatly tucked away. The ensuite bathroom features a soaring octagonal skylight that hovers over book-matched Gaudi slab marble floors, a freestanding Oceanus soaking tub by Tyrell & Laing and a white Onyx lined double shower ‘room’ with rain-head shower. The three additional bedroom suites are generously sized, all with ensuite bathrooms and an impressive amount of closet space. Not to be forgotten is the Dolby 10.1 surround sound Media room unlike any other, outfitted with plush upholstered stadium seating, dramatic cove lighting and ultra-suede lined ceilings and walls to make viewing the large projection screen all the more enjoyable. Next to the cinema is a 1,500-bottle, glass-encased, climate-controlled wine cellar including a Sub-Zero fridge for wine and champagne. The home also offers an advanced HVAC system, Lutron lighting, Savant AV system and motorized shades for optimal ease and control via wall-mounted iPads. After a nice workout in the home gym/yoga studio, followed by a massage in the private massage room, enjoy a steam in the spa inspired bathroom that includes a 6-person steam room with Kohler Aroma-therapy and Chroma-therapy via a 100-head fibre-optic lighting system integrated into the mosaic tiled barrel ceiling. After basking in a relaxing spa day at home, head upstairs via a 30-foot-tall, glass-peaked bulkhead housing the illuminated stairwell leading to the mezzanine floor where the 4th bedroom and library is perfectly situated overlooking the grandness below. Continue up the stairs to the rooftop terrace covered in wood decking, pavers and simulated lawn. The 4,200sf of gracious covered seating and dining areas act as a second living space and come complete with a fully equipped outdoor kitchen. Beyond the Balinese stone, wood and copper clad walls are panoramic views that allow you to view both the Empire State Building and the Freedom Tower simultaneously from under a Boffi outdoor shower. Have everything you need within your own home, a collector worthy space that is both perfect for relaxing and enjoying your in-home amenities or for hosting friends under the stars. The characteristics that make for a truly special New York property are hard to find and this one has them all with a level of architectural design and detailing rarely if ever seen.
