This sun-flooded, oversized 4,300 sq. ft. (approx.) unit at 110 Franklin Street is an architectural masterpiece where each individual detail was meticulously considered during the gut renovation process to transform it into a one-of-a-kind stunner. At nearly 85 feet in length and with 10 foot ceilings, the combined unit(s) took 2+ years and millions to renovate, and has been featured in the Wall Street Journal and DeZeen magazine.
The design of the apartment evolved from the series of six archways that center the home, which once were full brick walls separating the two units. Over the course of three months, the contractors blasted through seven layers of paint to achieve the perfectly desired texture and color of white-washed red brick. The thought behind the renovation of the walls was to create an immediate focal point for the home and to strike a balance between the coloring of the bricks and the abundant light that floods the apartment. Each archway has steel framed double windowed doors that are completely custom fitted to match the other handcrafted steelwork throughout the apartment.
Upon entry from the private elevator you are greeted with an oversized foyer and the first of many storage spaces. The flow of the apartment is thoughtfully planned. From the entrance you can survey the expansive layout and seamless design. Immediately from the entry you can see the powder room lined with the original tin ceiling tiles in the apartments before renovation. The repurposing and tender care of this design feature is just the first of a hundred subtle, respectful decisions made.
The designer kitchen is a chef's dream with an oversized, open layout. At 26' wide and 9' deep, the kitchen is as gracious and inviting as any 10,000 square foot house. Loaded with the best appliances available - 8 burner Wolfe stove with double ovens, 48" oversized SubZero fridge as well as a 24" full-height wine cooler and Miele dishwasher and two sinks - the kitchen is ideally suited for intimate family meals or entertaining on a grand scale.
Opposite is the den/home theater through several arches fully equipped for movies, special TV events and casual lounging. The TV can also be sleekly tucked away to create the perfect quiet sitting oasis. A slim sliver of a window leading to the kid's recreational area frees parents to have their own space.
The master craftsmanship, materials used and luxurious appointments in the living room, master bedroom and three additional bedrooms (all with en-suite baths), are evident throughout. The architectural shelving, the flawless hardwood flooring (planks of different widths randomly placed and by random we mean 50 hours of painstakingly placed Harvest French Cut White Oak), seamless gas burning fireplace and a spa worthy master bath will just keep reminding any visitor of the attention and love that went into this renovation.
Located at 108-110 Franklin Street, in the heart of NYC's most chic downtown neighborhood, unit #4 is in close proximity to some of Manhattan's best restaurants including the classic Odeon, Tamarind, Locanda Verde and family favorite Bubby's. The area is serviced for a healthy and athletic lifestyle with Equinox, Soul Cycle, Barry's Bootcamp, the Dog Pound and dozens of private gyms. Access is simplified with essentially every train line easily accessed including 1, 2, 3, A, C, and E trains. And when the relatives come to visit you have hotel choices that include the Four Seasons, Roxy and The Greenwich Hotel.
