Description

Please note that the apartment is currently set up with two and a half bathrooms. As noted, the alternate floorplan allows for up to five bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms.

Located in the tallest loft building in SoHo, 158 Mercer Street, Apartment 10M is one of the most remarkable full-floor homes available downtown.

Customized by the current owner, famed hotelier Andre Balazs, this 4,200sf, four-bedroom, two and a half bath home incorporates sophistication and elegance into a contemporary floorplan with one of a kind views overlooking downtown.

A key-locked elevator opens directly into the home where you will find yourself in a spacious foyer before heading down a long gallery that guides you into the enormous and naturally lit great room. Perfect for entertaining, the space includes a living room with a wood-burning fireplace that is encased in black Venetian plaster.

A separate dining area is positioned by a corner den facing south and west with views of the Freedom Tower, the perfect setting to watch the sunset. A second sitting area with north & west views provides additional space for relaxation.

A fully equipped gourmet kitchen awaits the ambitious chef, boasting Viking appliances, a six-burner industrial range with grill top, an exterior vented hood, fireclay farmhouse sink, white glossy cabinets and marble counters with a perfectly bookmatched marble backsplash.

On the opposite side of the floor is the master bedroom wing. This space allows for great flexibility between having two extra bedrooms, or as the current layout shows, a windowed dressing room with glass and wood cabinets that extend from floor to ceiling, and another room that is set up as a gym.

Nestled between the dressing room and gym is a spa-like steam room finished in mosaic tiles and a custom marble bench and vanity. The spacious master bedroom has incredible views south and features a walk-in closet and an en-suite bathroom with a dual sink marble vanity, deep soaking tub, stand up shower and three windows facing south and east. The south-facing, unobstructed exposure is perfectly positioned overlooking the city.

Two guest bedrooms with northern views share a full bathroom with a glass shower, marble sink and toto toilet. The home also includes a powder room with an elevated black marble sink and a separate laundry room.

Mr. Balazs' own additions include extensive built-in bookshelves, a long canvas-covered "wall of light?

and a 13th Century Florentine fresco. The beautifully textured walls and complete design aesthetic gives the space the feel of one of his iconic hotel lobbies, such as the nearby Mercer Hotel or the famed Chateau Marmont in LA.

Also known as the Museum Building, 158 Mercer Street is one of the city's early skyscrapers, dating back to 1895 before being converted to residences in 1996. This boutique full service condominium with only 19 apartments features a 24-hour doorman/concierge, full-time resident manager and a stunning planted/furnished roof deck with 360 degree views of the city and private storage for each apartment.

Mercer Street living awaits you: call or email for a private showing.
