The landmark conversion of the St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral School in Nolita is well underway, and the Time Equities and Hamlin Ventures-led development team have now listed the project’s duplex penthouse for sale. Priced at $13.1 million, the unit would be the fifth most expensive condo sale in the neighborhood if it achieves its 8-digit ask.
The four-bedroom, four-bath home is perched atop the tranquil Mott Street wing of the nearly 200-year-old complex. The unit sprawls a grand 3,673 square feet and features three private outdoor terraces with city views of the charming area. Residents enter a majestic great room that is 40 feet wide and has seven large exposures and a working fireplace. This lower living floor also features a large separate kitchen, a 464-foot garden terrace and a den/bedroom with an en-suite bathroom.
The home’s upper level holds three bedrooms each with their own en-suite baths. The master bedroom offers a stunning 40-foot-wide terrace, a large walk-in closet and a double-sink bathroom with separate shower and soaking tub. A staircase leads up to another private roof terrace which offers views of the neighborhood and the Old St. Patrick Church across the way.
Known as the Residences at Prince, the historic conversion's design is being handled by Marvel Architects who sought to contrast the Federal-style exterior with an elegant and airy design within. Renderings show the penthouse unit is accented with simple rustic touches such as brick-accented doorways and dark wood finishes on the kitchen island and bathroom cabinetry. According to the Daily News, the building originally served as an orphanage before it was converted to a school. Oscar-winning filmmaker Martin Scorsese was reportedly a pupil in the building.
Ultimately, the conversion will provide seven new condos and two townhouses. Two other large units are for sale in the building, a 5-bed/ 4.5 bath priced at $11.9 million and a 4-bed/ 3.5 bath priced at $8.08 million. Amenities are to include an attended lobby, private common garden, fitness center and private yoga studio, dedicated private storage and bike storage. The church will also occupy a 6,100-square-foot community facility space on the ground floor.
