This three-bedroom 4,200sqft CONDO duplex with 24' ceilings in the heart of Tribeca will make your jaw drop. The owner, a fabric designer, painter and sculptor, spent 18 months and over $2 million transforming the space into a work of art. The centerpiece of the duplex is a cast-iron and mahogany staircase that was welded together inside the home. It's backed by an oxidized copper screen that the owner spent six months crafting by hand. The roughly 4,200-square-foot space is full of the owner's paintings, sculptures and textiles. The study has a linen-covered wall embroidered with silk and metal threads. The master bedroom has walls covered in cotton-satin panels with hand-embroidered silk to resemble a Japanese bamboo garden. The huge spa-like master bathroom is one of the home's 2 bathrooms. On the upper level of the condo is a column plastered with rusted metals and brass, which took the owner four months to fabricate. Outside the high-ceiling living room is a 900-square foot patio with heated limestone flooring and plantings, and a day bed at the foot of a 25-foot sculpture that is framed by concrete columns with backlit plexiglass panels. Other features include exposed wood beams and floor-to-ceiling glass. Amazingly quiet. Multi-zoned central AC, common building heat, key-locked elevator in this boutique, six-unit condominium nestled in the discrete one-block-long, cobble-stoned Jay street, convenient to all shopping, parks, transportation.
