Description

THE APARTMENT: Perched atop a luxurious, boutique full service building in the heart of the revitalized Financial District neighborhood, is this wonderful penthouse home. Enveloped in 478 square feet of private outdoor space, this home is a fabulous retreat from the bustling city below. This loft like space faces south and east, allowing bright sunshine to fill the space indoors and flood the terrace all day long.

The generously sized great room feels open and airy, thanks to the soaring 11-foot ceilings, and oversized windows with glass terrace doors. A rare amenity in NYC, the stylish fireplace is sure to add pizzazz when entertaining or help you wind down after a long day. The beautifully updated chef’s kitchen features gorgeous lacquer cabinetry, granite countertops and a Viking stove.

The massive master bedroom features a spa like en-suite bathroom, complete with a marble soaking tub, separate glass shower and dual sink vanity. A large walk-in closet makes organization a breeze. The large second bedroom has ample closet space and also features an updated marble en-suite bathroom.

Additionally, there is a powder room for guests off of the foyer. Other noteworthy features include: hardwood flooring and lighting upgrades throughout, and the home is complete with a laundry closet with washer and dryer. THE BUILDING: 59 John Lofts is a conversion development, reimagined into a boutique condominium by famed designer Andres Escobar. Tastefully done, and recently upgraded common areas make the building feel brand new.

Residents have exclusive use of a finished large roof top deck with communal grills, an exercise room with cardio and weight training equipment, and a library lounge for quiet reading or entertaining guests. THE LOCATION: The Financial District has undergone a major transformation over the past decade, but the best is still yet to come. With major restaurants, hotels, and condominium towers in the works - all surrounding 59 John Street - the investment potential here is huge.

The area is quickly becoming a hotspot for high end retail, culinary excellence and entertainment and is even more desirable thanks to its convenient access to transportation and beautiful parks. A brand new Whole Foods is joining the neighborhood and Eataly is steps away.
