Designed by Fogarty Finger, enjoy the luxurious aura and townhouse-like feel of this expansive 4 bedroom 3.5 bath duplex loft in prime Tribeca, housed in a handsome 1907 Beaux Arts building, once headquarters for the American Typewriter Company. Beautiful light pours into the stunning 2-story home all day from 23 large windows on 4 exposures. Airy 10'5" ceilings, wide-plank Siberian white oak floors, custom millwork, antique Murano glass chandeliers, high-end Dornbracht and Boffi fixtures and other impeccable finishes throughout grace the ambience of this downtown oasis.
Your townhouse in the sky offers a thoughtful separation of space created by a full main entertaining level and quiet sleeping quarters upstairs. A long 20+-ft windowed foyer makes a striking impression and leads to a massive 40 ft open-concept great room, perfect for hosting, with lots of room for sitting and dining areas, and even singalongs at the piano. The gourmet chef in you will appreciate the fine stylings of the top-of-the-line open kitchen featuring custom cabinetry with pull-out pantries, soft close drawers and appliance caddy, a large island with seating and chic Fontana Arte pendants above, sleek countertops, built-in Sonos speakers, and premium appliances (36" Sub-Zero fridge, Miele cooktop and hood, new GE Monogram oven, Bosch dishwasher, GE Monogram wine fridge). A big pantry, guest powder room, and artful wood staircase with steel railing complete the first floor.
Level 2 is comprised of 4 spacious bedrooms, 2 of which are en-suite. The generous corner primary bedroom brightened by 6 oversized windows presents a huge custom-fitted walk-in dressing closet, and gorgeous spa bath with a deep soaking tub, dual-sink vanity, and glass-enclosed rain shower. A 3rd full bath is accessible from the hall, and custom closets abound. One of the bedrooms can serve as an office, den, gym, etc. Other highlights are a stacked washer and exterior-vented dryer (one of only 2 in the building), and 2-zone heating-cooling with Nest thermostats.
8D also presents a rare investment opportunity, as monthly costs are low thanks to income from the Gourmet Garage occupying the ground-floor commercial space. The unit benefits from an approximately $20K per year subsidy in maintenance from its share of the establishment's rent.
Converted to a co-op in 1979, The Collect Pond House is a grand 12-story landmark with 2 new elevators, a full-time super and porter, video security entry, new mail and package rooms, private storage cages, a common rooftop, and bike room in the basement. Public spaces were meticulously transformed by an architect-resident, most notably the elegant lobby restored to its original glory with double-height marble walls, a striking wrought-iron staircase, and elaborate iron grills surrounding the elevator bank. Excellent location too, minutes from eateries, shops, schools, subways, small parks, and Hudson River Greenway.
