    About this property

    • Meticulously designed by AD100 team Fox-Nahem Associates, this sprawling masterpiece offers nearly 8,000 square feet of combined indoor/outdoor living with breathtakingly chic interiors and extraordinary, historic architecture situated in one of Downtown Manhattan's most desirable and centralized neighbourhoods.

      Step inside this four-bedroom, five-and-a-half-bathroom Penthouse to discover a near-endless list of premium upgrades and designer finishes. The dramatic foyer introduces soaring barrel-vaulted brick ceilings, architectural beams and caustic Venetian plaster walls that carry throughout the nearly 40-foot gallery with custom art lighting, perfect for showcasing your collection. Enter the palatial great room, which welcomes lavish entertaining surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows, custom metalized wood-plank ceilings, bold columns and pony hair-upholstered wall panels. Relax in front of the stunning full-height steel gas fireplace, or step onto the remarkable wraparound terrace to enjoy 2,027 square feet of seating and dining areas alongside a hot tub, fountain, 55-inch outdoor television and delightful willow pergola. Ipe decking and limestone pavers are accented by lush landscaping, while iconic skyline views to the north rise above the 5,000 square foot viewing garden.

      Chefs will adore the masterful kitchen, the perfect combination of form and function. Pearlized brick barrel-vaulted ceilings and designer pendants rise over the massive marble island featuring "chef's table" dining for four. Custom cabinetry and marble countertops surround an impressive suite of state-of-the-art appliances anchored by a magnificent La Cornue range, while stainless steel and glass doors conceal the space for entertaining. The adjacent sunken media room, cloaked in padded wool walls and custom millwork, invites after-dinner drinks at the custom bar, and a home theater with Sonance surround sound system delivers a world-class entertainment experience.

      Luxurious bedrooms are nestled in the residence's southern wing for optimal peace and privacy. Awake to extraordinary eastern light in the decadent owner's retreat featuring blackened steel, bronze and oak finishes softened by mohair wall treatments, drapes and motorized shades. Two separate full bathrooms boast soaking tubs, steam showers, Toto commodes and hidden Seura televisions. The two exquisite dressing rooms are finished with full-height cerused solid white oak cabinetry, while an adjacent home office and home gym add outstanding convenience. Three exceptional secondary suites with private bathrooms and superb custom closets provide opulent accommodations for family and friends.

      A massive utility room includes two washers, two dryers, a full-height Sub-Zero wine refrigerator and a sink surrounded by custom cabinetry. The Savant smart home system controls sound, lighting, temperature and security, while a custom HVAC system ensures year-round comfort in this unrivalled showplace.

      The Puck Building is a New York City landmark and one of Manhattan's most recognizable structures.

Set atop the prized building, you'll find The Puck Penthouses - a bespoke collection of six phenomenal condominium homes. Residents enjoy full-time doorman, concierge and premier in-residence services. Located at the intersection of Nolita, The Bowery, Soho and Greenwich Village, this home is at the epicentre of Downtown cool with magnificent shopping, dining and nightlife venues lining the nearby blocks in every direction.

    Local information

    • Even if you've somehow never heard of the illustrious SoHo, you'll always know where to find it — and never confuse it with London's lower-case Soho. As with most things relating to New York City, everyone has an opinion, and SoHo's east-west boundaries are no different. However, what's indisputable is it sits in Lower Manhattan, north of Canal Street and, of course, south of Houston. Architecturally, the neighborhood is a time capsule, largely defined by buildings with decorative cast-iron façades. These 500-some structures date from the mid-to-late 19th century, when cast iron experienced an Industrial Revolution-era moment due to its strength — providing support without relying on interior columns — resistance to fire, and cheap costs relative to other materials. All are contained today in the succinctly-named SoHo-Cast Iron Historic District. Presently, SoHo is always alive with people, whether residents living in spacious lofts or visitors drawn by the second-to-none shopping and restaurant options.
