True North. There is mint condition, and then there is triple mint, one of a kind, curated luxury. An incredible transformation has taken place at this floor thru loft with four exposures in a boutique condo building on the Lower East Side.
With open, wraparound views from 30 windows, this home is a one of a kind front row seat to the cycles of the sun and the skyline of New York City. The level of taste, care and customization that went into its metamorphosis is rarely seen. It has never been occupied- the entire property is pristine and untouched.
The keyed elevator opens to a private landing with a private security system/video monitor. Both this and the touchpad keyless entry can be accessed via an app. You enter from here into a massive 20x30 foot living room which looks directly West to a rare mix of classic spires and modern skyscrapers including City Hall, the Woolworth Building, and the Freedom Tower. The floors here and throughout the home are 12 inch white oak. A drop down projector has been placed in the ceiling with accompanying drop down screen, all on remote control and wired for cable and TV- no need for an actual monitor to distract from your view. Speakers have been placed in the ceiling throughout the home as well, and the living area has one of two separate Sonos zones. A windowed home office is adjacent to the front door landing. Every window in the home has motorized remote controlled Roman shades.
The kitchen faces north over a Church. It is elegant and refined, with every convenience- Miacucina kitchen cabinets and built-ins, silestone countertop, a SubZero 36 inch cabinet refrigerator with double bottom freezer in solid Walnut, Kallista pull-down faucet, Smeg cooktop, Miele oven and one touch Miele vented hood. A garbage disposal has been installed, and a water filtration system runs through every faucet in the apartment. A mirrored backsplash reflects the city back inside.
Past the kitchen is the laundry and second bedroom and bath. The second bedroom faces north with custom built-ins; the bath has shower/tub combination and a window to the South. Both baths are encased in floor to ceiling terrazzo tiling and fitted with Toto Washlet toilets- heated with remote control bidets. The vanities are Cubik from Idea Group with Robern touch sensitive incandescent lighting. Both baths have radiant heated floors and Kohler fixtures.
At the east end of the apartment is the primary bedroom suite. The views north run from Seward Park to midtown- the Empire State Building center stage. To the south and east are magical bridges and open skies. The TV here is already installed and connected to your second Sonos zone. The freestanding wall behind the bed has built in nightstands and custom wallpaper hand painted in China. Both bedrooms have blackout shades behind the Roman shades, which can be positioned separately at a touch. You have double access to the 16x7 windowed walk-in closet, which has been customized by California Closets. A full length beveled mirror, safe, and numerous drawers and hanging compartments with storage up to ceiling height are ready for you to unpack.
The windowed master bath has the same fixtures and components mentioned above, but with a separate tub and double walk in shower that has a linear drain and converts to a steam room with an interior touch pad control system and built-in drop down bench.
The apartment was gutted to the exterior walls and was foam insulated for sound against walls and both slabs . The double paned, double hung Marvin windows are all new. There are new steam radiators, new central heat and AC with all new mechanicals, ductwork and condenser, newly rewired circuit panels with 200 amperage, and a Nest thermostat. Every light plate in the home is on a dimmer switch. Built in 1912, the Garfield Building was converted to condominiums in 2005 and has only 13 units across 9 floors. It is very private and on a quiet block in the heart of the best of the Lower East side near Dimes, Cervo's, Dirt Candy, JaJas Mexicana, Dhamahka, and Contra; as well as countless galleries, shops, the International Center of Photography, and the new Essex Market. The F train is one block away, as is Seward Park. The building has bike storage and recently updated its interiors and intercoms, which are tech savvy and cell phone operated. The fully landscaped roof deck with sweeping views of Manhattan and the East River is two floors up.
The custom furnishings are available for sale separately with the unit, as is the art by Fabian Burgos. All were curated by CPB Studios.
