Listing of the Day
Location: Tribeca, New York
Price: $6.9 million
This three-level townhouse is part of 12 Warren, a new 12-story, 13-unit luxury condo building developed by DDG in the Tribeca section of downtown Manhattan.
Known as Townhouse North, the triplex sits on the first three floors of the building, with a private outdoor garden area on the ground floor.
The façade that DDG created is composed of bluestone quarried in the Catskill region of upstate New York that has been arranged in layers. There are also concrete and handcrafted bluestone accents throughout the building and the apartments, which includes townhouses as well as full- and half-floor residences.
“The beauty with DDG is that they do everything in-house—the design and all of the construction—and they’re very innovative with design,” said listing agent Tamir Shemesh of Douglas Elliman.
The building is about 70% sold, with four remaining units, he said. Most of the owners have already moved in.
“The volume of the space is what makes this townhome so special,” Mr. Shemesh said. “In the living room, you have 22 feet and 7 inches of ceiling height, which is enormous.”
“When we walk people through, they just stand there to feel the volume and the space,” he said.
For the triplex’s interiors, DDG brought in Carlos Junqueira, founder of Espasso, a Tribeca gallery of Brazilian design. Junqueira worked with designer Cristiana Mascarenhas of InPlus Inc. to create a design scheme for Townhouse North that showcases the best of contemporary and mid-century Brazilian design.
Furnishings in the living room include vintage armchairs by Jorge Zalszupin, a limited edition Carlos Motta Koguma floor lamp, a Cubos Libres coffee table by Claudia Moreira Salles and a vintage Esfera armchair by Ricardo Fasanello. In the adjacent office space, there is a limited-edition Mole Armchair and Ottoman by Sergio Rodrigues. Other rooms in the triplex feature Giuseppe Scapinelli dining chairs, an ON desk by Oscar Niemeyer and an array of vintage items by Liceu de Artes e Ofícios, Joaquim Tenreiro and others.
The furnishings are not included but could be negotiated in a separate deal, Mr. Shemesh said.
Custom architectural and design details include board-form concrete ceilings, 7.5-inch-wide plank Austrian white oak floors, floor-to-ceiling windows, zoned climate control, and fully vented laundry areas. An elegant sculptural spiral staircase, partly finished in concrete, runs through the triplex.
The kitchen opens to both the living and dining rooms and is outfitted with custom white lacquer cabinetry with Austrian white oak accents, a honed black Saint Laurent marble center island, countertop and backsplash, and a full suite of Gaggenau appliances including a wine refrigerator and fully vented range hood. Warm wood finishes in the kitchen help to soften the modern appliances.
The second-floor master bedroom suite has a walk-in dressing room and a dramatic bathroom with Carrara marble and bluestone-accented walls and flooring, a deep soaking tub clad in Carrara marble, a Dornbracht rain shower, and a wall-hung Toto dual-flush toilet.
The spacious second and third bedrooms have en-suite baths and private terraces. Secondary bathrooms feature Ann Sacks ceramic penny tile, a Duravit bathtub, Hansgrohe fixtures in polished chrome, a Robern mirrored medicine cabinet.
The 3,788-square-foot townhouse is on three levels, with three bedrooms, four full bathrooms and one powder room. There is an additional 805 square feet of exterior space.
Building amenities include a fitness center, 24-hour doorman and concierge service, a bike room and private storage for purchase.
“There is a Whole Foods right there on Warren Street,” Mr. Shemesh said. “It’s Tribeca—it’s extremely convenient, and all of the subway lines are right there.”
“You have fantastic restaurants, retail, apparel,” he said. “It’s very close to the West Side Highway.”
