One-of-a-kind SoHo loft transformed into extraordinary living space encompassing over 8,000 SF of interiors and 3,700 SF of private exteriors. This bespoke residence at 421 Broome/Crosby, a small boutique landmarked cast-iron condominium dating back to 1873, provides the owner the comfort of full-time, 24-hour doorman services as well as title to an exclusive rear yard with two secure parking spaces. Over 700 SF of fully built-out cedar storage rooms are also included with the sale.
This AML Architecture/Roman & Williams designed home, four years in the making, has been constructed from the ground up with entirely custom fabricated steel doors, windows and skylights. Only the finest natural materials have been used to accent the property including: Meyer of Munich, Dinesen, Dolomite and Ann Sacks, as well as appliances by LaCanche, Wolf, Sub-Zero, Miele and Lynx.
With direct elevator access to each of the living areas leading to entries appointed with profiled steel gates, this Penthouse property begins on the fifth floor, opening into a 31 x 46-foot great room. Marked by six oversized arched windows, this room overlooks historic Soho underneath 15-foot ceilings and two skylights, anchored by opposing wood-burning fireplaces encased in honed petit granite.
Outfitted to the liking of a professional chef, the spectacular 20-foot brick barrel-vaulted ceiling kitchen includes an 86-inch range, black granite countertop/backsplash and wood-burning fireplace, as well as two proper butler’s pantries and wine rooms. A second master suite with a private terrace, guest bedroom with bath, wood-paneled home office and laundry room complete the floor.
Encased in a LaForge bronze stair railing, a Chesney cantilevered black marble staircase leads to a master level with his and her bathrooms. Marked by over 20 custom closets, dumbwaiter, coffee bar, wood-burning fireplace and dual private terraces—the master suite is unlike any offering on the marketplace today.
One flight up, the top level opens to entertaining terraces paved in Cenia Gray granite designed for outdoor/indoor living with a large heated steel and glass canopy, wood-burning fireplace, and TV alcove—all accessible by six sets of French doors. A screening room with wood-burning fireplace, fitness room, second full kitchen and laundry, and dining room have been intelligently placed to serve this floor’s interior. Three additional landscaped terraces, equipped with custom gas lanterns, offer a heated spa, fountained garden and open-air dining. An adjoining staff room with full bath completes this incomparable residence.
