Luminous, modern, and stunning, this SoHo Penthouse was meticulously crafted and designed using the latest in technology and luxury finishes by world renowned architect Mark Foster Gage to create the ultimate downtown residence. One of only three Gage-designed residences in New York City, this is his pinnacle residential project. Perched on the 12th floor atop the historic Singer Building comes a one of a kind, and impeccably renovated, Penthouse Loft. Soaring over the rest of SoHo, with 4 exposures, light pours in from 22 windows and 4 skylights to inspire the body and soul. The second you step off the keyed-lock elevator, a sense of wonder overwhelms you. The oversized, yet proportional, landmarked windows perfectly frame the beautiful, surrounding European-styled facades of historic SoHo and the Manhattan skyline, along with open sky, and the horizon line. The width and depth, coupled with high ceilings, skylights, and whitewashed solid German wide-plank Douglas Fir floors, further accentuate the volume of the space. Moving through the Loft's multiple sitting areas, you encounter an array of subtle designer details: custom 9 foot doors; custom, double-paned windows; hidden hinges; Corian window sills; radiant heated floors; exposed, original industrial steel scissor columns; proportional Art Walls; hidden motorized curtains; filtered water; humidity control; automatic closeted lighting; classic, custom hardware to gallery-quality lighting; a wood burning fireplace; and emotionally stirring focal points. One of those focal points is the main dining area skylight. Oversized, yet perfectly proportional (a theme permeating the space), the skylight, with immaculate and luminous views of the ornamental Water Tower and sky, draws the outside in. Situated in the center of the 36 foot by 74 foot great room is a custom, open and vented chef s kitchen which is in itself a piece of art. While the seamless Corian cabinetry hides the top of the line Miele appliances and storage, the custom sculpted and robotically cut, 20 foot long, Corian island is a marvel of ingenuity and modern design. Adjacent to the kitchen is yet another focal point: a one of kind one-piece, polished stainless steel floating staircase that leads to the roof deck. As you ascend the robotically cut staircase--complete with decorative accents--the sky reflects off the stainless steel as light comes in from the overhead skylight. Seamlessly blending organic with industrial design, and bringing the outside in, this staircase is a work of art. Once atop the roof deck, you are immediately hit with the view of One World Trade, 56 Leonard, and the rest of the downtown skyline. With a full outdoor kitchen, including gas grill, sink, and refrigerator, along with water proof storage bins and a 360 degree view of Manhattan, New Jersey, and Brooklyn, you have the ability to entertain 80-100 of your closest friends, or simply enjoy the peace and serenity of a fully landscaped and private roof deck. Off the rear of the living space are two equal sized bedrooms. The first bedroom features a skylight and ensuite full bathroom. The second bedroom showcases huge south and western facing windows and custom built-in storage wall. A beautiful powder room boasts gorgeous Moroccan tiles, Duravit fixtures, a custom Corian sink, and a custom inlaid and robotically carved polished stainless steel mirror. A 4th bedroom--which features resin-treated, wide plank real hard wood black walnut floors, 3 large Art Walls, and Western light pouring in--easily doubles for, and is currently used as, an office, as it has a private entrance to the Broadway side of the building and can be closed off from the rest of the home--a truly unique offering for a downtown penthouse. The Master Suite is truly Zen-like. With tranquility, rest, and rejuvenation in mind, the moment your feet touch the rare and luxurious laser-cut grooved, wide-planked Walnut floors that gently massage your feet, you know you have reached the pinnacle. The Large and Spacious bedroom features large North-facing windows and a skylight perfectly positioned and angled. Meanwhile, the Master Bath unveils another Skylight, large mirrors, custom lighting, ample amount of storage, a custom Corian double vanity, large slabbed Nero Marquina marble floors, a private Duravit water closet and a wet room complete with a massive Dornbracht rain shower, a beautiful Duravit soaking tub, and radiant heated floors! The oversized his and hers master closet includes large mirrored pocket doors, 2 massive separate closets full of custom shelving and storage, and includes mirror backed shoe racks, and a vanity make-up table with Hollywood styled circle bulbs. The home features a large laundry room with Corian counters, a utility sink, a oversized side-by-side Miele washer/dryer, and a plethora of auxiliary storage space. The climate control and surround sound in every room are controlled through a Savant system, which also controls a majority of the skylights, shades, and multi-zoned Daikin Central Air Conditioning System. Recently renovated, impeccably maintained and move in ready, you cannot find a more thoughtfully designed Penthouse in SoHo with these views and light. Neutral and modern, yet spectacular, and crafted to be a home, this one of a kind space only comes around once in a generation. Situated in the heart of SoHo in one of the most renowned Cast Iron buildings, you are surrounded by some of the best shopping, galleries, museums, cafes, nightlife, and restaurants in the World.
