Lofts aren't typical Floorplan Porn material?all those big open spaces are a real snooze when it comes to diagrams?but we'll make an exception for this penthouse at 73 Worth Street?part of complex of old Tribeca buildings converted to condos a decade ago. One of the terraces has been turned into a putting green, what the listing describes as a "one-of-a-kind surprise." The private putt-putt is indeed a rarity, as is the "potting and storage shed" on one of the other terraces, which sadly didn't make the floorplan. Golf and a secret shed? Too bad Tiger Woods didn't catch wind of this place in time!
The listing's history is traced by the Manhattan Loft Guy, who gives major props to the sellers for pricing the 2,015-square-foot sensibly enough to trigger a bidding war. It was priced at $2.395 million in June, pretty much what the sellers paid for it back in 2006. It was in contract that same month, and sold for $2.475 million. Hopefully the buyers got a few swing lessons thrown in free of charge.
