THE LAYOUT

Prepare to be amazed by the soaring 14 foot ceilings and sun-drenched open-concept living room with South and Eastern exposures from the moment you step into this extraordinary Penthouse. Dark zebrawood floors are ubiquitous throughout the space, and both the living and dining rooms feature reclaimed wood from a Vermont barn. The living room also boasts a gas fireplace with a fossil marble mantle that reaches up to the ceilng. The eat-in kitchen is equipped with reclaimed wood, custom cabinetry, repurposed metal cabinet doors from a 19th Century Tribeca factory, live-edge granite countertops, and a suite of high-end appliances including a Sub Zero refrigerator, a Signature Hardware Kembla Copper farmhouse sink, Summit under-the-counter freezer drawers, an AGA Legacy dual fuel range oven, a Miele Crystal dishwasher, and an Evolution Excel food waste disposer.

Just off the dining room lie three of the home’s four bedrooms. Two of the bedrooms possess roomy closets faced with reclaimed wood sliding barn doors while the third enjoys a charming exposed brick wall, a private loft space, a dressing room, and a full en-suite bathroom. Diagonally across from these three bedrooms sits an over-sized master bedroom suite with four closets, a dressing room, and a spa-like master bathroom with natural stone vessel dual-vanity sinks, reclaimed wood accent walls and doors, and a travertine-floored shower and bath area with a separate, Italian-made E-Legno carved cedar wood tub. The entirety of the shower area is positioned atop a complete custom pan that contains three layers of waterproofing to protect against leaks.

Up a curving set of reclaimed wood stairs fitted with a custom blackened steel railing and concrete is the home’s fully irrigated, bamboo-screened 1,200 Square Foot rooftop oasis. Thoroughly customized in partnership with leading New York City landscape designer Roger Miller, the terrace enjoys the luxurious combination of continual sunlight and a relaxing sense of privacy. The glass-enclosed family room with drop-down flat-screen television can be opened up entirely to the outside, where there is more than enough room for a 12 person outdoor dining area and a separate glass-enclosed home office/meditation room.  The terrace is fully equipped and delivered landscaped with built-in speakers, mood lighting, and irrigation system.

THE HIDDEN DETAILS

Aware of the impact that RF/EMF levels can have on stress levels, sleep quality, and overall health, the home underwent comprehensive alterations to shield itself from outside disturbance. In addition, every window, every exterior wall, and nearly every interior wall was treated in order to reduce RM/EMF levels within the home by 98%, possibly giving it the lowest levels in the entire city. Additionally, WiFi within the home can be completely turned off via a tablet/smartphone as well as a convenient wall button.

Other features of the home include an extensive water filtration system so that every drop of water—both hot and cold—in the apartment is filtered.  There is also an upgraded security system that features 8 high-end cameras, sound-dampening windows, and an air filtration system that improves air quality levels by 50% compared to what they are outside. The home has also been optimized for tablet/smartphone technology. Everything—including audio/visual control, camera control, remote access/keyless entry, and alarm control—can be accessed through a personal device.

7 BOND STREET, PHAB

Lined on either side with a collection of striking townhomes and storefronts, Bond Street is a uniquely wide, cobblestoned lane located within the prestigious confines of NoHo. The street is famous both for its juxtaposition of vintage and modern architecture as well as its sense of seclusion. 7 Bond—originally constructed in 1904—rises 6 stories and contains 18 apartments, and because it is nestled amidst a cluster of landmarked structures, the attractive views that its penthouse units currently enjoy will remain the same for generations to come. The building sits at the nexus of the East Village, Greenwich Village, SoHo, and NoLita, and thus has access to some of the city’s best restaurants, cafes, bars, theatres, and shops. It is only a few blocks away from Washington Square Park and is close to several major subway lines.
