This luxurious urban residence, in a Pre-War Beaux Art building in a very special part of SoHo, was designed by the internationally recognized interior designer Ken Fulk, a member of the Architectural Digest 100. Described by Fulk as "Part city townhouse and part country manor house," the impressively scaled, 6,014 square foot duplex provides an ultra-rare opportunity to own such a sprawling apartment in the epicenter of SoHo.
Replete with historical details, such as original barrel vaulted ceilings, the home has two massive, open-plan living spaces, connected by an elegant internal staircase. Entries and service entries are provided on both levels. As Fulk says, "Warm wood tones with accents of brass, glass and marble complement the industrial history of the neighborhood." On the lower level, the great room offers an informal living area and eat-in kitchen, with warm, wirebrushed oak millwork, wide plank floors, and richly hued botanical fabrics. On this level, three family bedrooms have light, happy tones, each with a private bath and copious closet space. An additional full bath is offered for guest use, and a laundry room is also provided. The upstairs level is more urbane, or "citified" as Fulk describes it, with chevron floors and Art Deco detailing in deep green lacquered wood paneling with brass and glass accents. This is the more formal level, with room for formal living and dining areas, with a built-in marble swathed buffet. A wet bar is provided near a second, enclosed kitchen, provided for ease of entertaining. A powder room is also provided for convenience. Behind the staircase, the master bedroom offers a luxurious walk-in closet and large bath. An adjoining bedroom, with its own walk-in closet and bath, can also be used as a private sitting room or office.
Harmoniously blending the boutique nature of old-world Soho expected in New York, 151 Wooster is one of Soho's premier locations. With no shortage of world-class shopping and dining, Soho's charm also lies in its cobblestone streets, cast-iron architecture, and sweeping lofts and galleries.
