Peacefully located on Mercer Street between Broome and Grand, the penthouse at 47 Mercer Street has an astonishing volume of space and light, both indoor and out. The key locked elevator, exceptionally large, opens into a generous private vestibule which foretells the interior space with its glass and aluminum walls. Upon entering, one is met with 10 oversize windows on three sides in the living room with 50 feet of frontage east onto Mercer Street and south and north windows as well. 13' ceilings, a rarity for cast iron buildings. The double windows on all sides have ensured that the space is always serene and quiet. A stone wall holds the wood burning fireplace (and a hidden television!)with an expansive space suitable for lavish entertaining, provisioned from the immaculate chef's kitchen with a 42" Viking refrigerator, Gaggenau 6 burner cooktop and oven, and back serving pantry with Viking wine cellar. There are three oversized bedrooms, and the possibility of a fourth, and three spacious baths, notably a master bath suite that has a Boffi bath, and Pear Blue granite floors.
An elegant architectural staircase, with leather handlebar banisters takes you gently to the next level, a sunroom (or guest room) with its own full bath, and through the solarium door to a full roof terrace, looking south on to a dazzling skyline. This vast roof space is an entertaining dream for its generosity and lovely light, and glittering night view. There is an endless pool, an outdoor kitchen, and no end of flexibility as to its potential for outdoor living.
47 Mercer is an intimate Condo building with 5 residential units and a commercial unit, in a historic cast iron building from 1870.
