A modern marvel, this 25 foot wide Tribeca townhouse dream home offers 6 luxurious levels of open sun-flooded living space, lovely park views, a private elevator to transport you from floor to floor, and a spectacular private rooftop oasis. Designed by famed architect/developer John Petrarca who resided here, this contemporary approx. 6,800-square-foot masterpiece on charming Reade Street is as unique as Manhattan homes get.
Featured in Alexander Gorlin's book, "Creating a New American Townhouse," 156 Reade Street is celebrated for its innovative elements that include a 1,100-foot underground pipe which maintains a constant 52-degree interior ground temperature all year round. State-of-the-art systems further optimize comfort throughout the entire residence, including a geothermal system that provides heat, AC and hot water, and an automatic water filtration system for clean drinking water. There's even a heated sidewalk to conveniently melt the ice and snow!
Radiant heated floors, floor-to-ceiling windows, panoramic southern, western and northern views, and impeccably-appointed living/entertaining spaces with the finest finishes and fixtures are among the other distinctive details. Beyond the elevator and formal foyer awaits a breathtaking master glass staircase ascending from the first to top floor. Two spacious bedrooms, two bathrooms and a playroom occupy the second level. Floor three is reserved for your huge light-filled master suite with a wall of southern windows overlooking the tree-lined street. Entertain grandly on level four with a divine Bulthaup kitchen, open dining room with stretching views of historic Tribeca, and dramatic living room with a double height ceiling, massive windows and wood-burning fireplace. Located on the fifth floor is an expansive home office/den, laundry and bathroom complete with a steam shower.
