One of the premier homes at 36 Bleecker Street, Residence 5B is a grand, three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bathroom loft converted to an incredible two-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom with soaring ceilings and a one-of-a-kind corner layout in the building. Occupying the highest non-penthouse floor, two principal suites flank the living room featuring northern and eastern exposures across 15 windows, each with an en-suite bathroom and tree top views with incredible light. This is a unique opportunity for a discerning buyer in one of Manhattan's most desirable and vibrant neighborhoods.
With architecture and interiors by Morris Adjmi, Residence 5B combines restored prewar details and modern comforts to create a luxurious and character-filled home. The living and dining room, stretching over 23 feet, has 11'10' exposed brick barrel vaulted ceilings, the highest in the building, and 8 custom vaulted casement windows that do not exist on other floors. The home has fumed 7.5'-wide plank white oak floors, and cold rolled blackened steel accents throughout.
The chef's kitchen, which is open to the living room, is appointed with professional-level appliances from Wolf, Sub-Zero, and Miele. Both the countertops and backsplash are Calacatta marble, and a double-wide window floods the cooking space with natural light. Counter seating allows for comfortable casual dining, in addition to the formal dining area in the great room.
Originally designed as a three-bedroom, the loft was converted by combining two previous bedrooms into one stately enclave. The northern suite has custom oversized closets occupying a windowed dressing room, seamlessly flowing to the bedroom or en suite bathroom. The five-fixture principal suite bathroom features marble throughout and cold-rolled blackened steel fixtures.
A second principal suite, equally as grand, features a 12' deep walk-in closet and a windowed en-suite bathroom with a built-in marble tub and stall shower. Rounding out the apartment is a full laundry room with a washer and dryer and additional closet space, and a grand entry gallery with ample wall space for any art collection. A large storage room is included with the sale.
Formerly a celebrated 1885 Romanesque Revival-style print atelier, the Schumacher was re-envisioned to a full service luxury condominium with only 20 units. It is now recognized as the choice building downtown, with handsome character and guarded with well-practiced discretion, for discerning buyers seeking a private living environment. Amenities include 24/7 doorman concierge, fitness center, children's playroom, a serene roof deck, and rotating museum quality art collection in the lobby.
