This Tribeca condo at 195 Hudson Street is officially listed as a one-bedroom apartment, but the current owners have fully taken advantage of the 2,325-square-foot space and added a glass-enclosed sleeping area. It doesn’t have a window—or much privacy—but feels anything from dark and cramped due to those see-through walls. The windowed bedroom, too, is separated from the apartment by nothing more than floor-to-ceiling glass. Who needs privacy, anyway, when the apartment looks this nice?
All that glass, while creating separate spaces within the apartment, makes it feel completely open. 11-foot ceilings help, too. 195 Hudson was built in 1929, originally the headquarters of the U.S. Rubber Company, and when it was converted to condo in 1999 the units were delivered by the sponsor as raw space. (This apartment was purchased back then for $588K. It last sold in 2015 for $3.4 million.) Its unique interior, then, is very much a product of the building.
The dining area is part of the open living room, and currently set up right across from the kitchen. The area boasts a built-in bar, while the kitchen is outfitted with slate floors and stone countertops.
Lots of glass in both bedrooms. There’s even a third glass-enclosed space that could be set up as another bedroom, but is currently used as an office space. The second bedroom has a circular ceiling cut-out, which holds a chandelier, and the office has its own custom book shelves.
The master suite has a renovated en-suite bedroom as well as a custom, built-in dressing room. This is the type of closet New Yorkers drool over—good thing it’s covered by actual walls, so we know privacy isn’t an impossible thing to find in this apartment.
