We're big fans of Daniel Craig's 1BR penthouse on Warren Street, but maybe Craig doesn't like it quite as much as we do. The Post reports on the progress of Craig's hunt, with wife Rachel Weisz, for a Tribeca loft. And one of the places he checked out is this fourth-floor unit at 427 Washington Street?three-bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms, and 4,200 square feet. The owners renovated it in 2006, with what sounds like a fairly specific aesthetic in mind:
Chevron oak floors, oak paneling and built-ins (based on Paul T. Frankl’s skyscraper designs of the late 1920s), Venetian plaster on select walls, lacquered beamed ceilings, and one-of-a-kind woodwork, pocket doors and light fixtures are some of the special touches throughout. The kitchen is outfitted with an Aga stove, Sub-Zero refrigeration, a pop-up Viking ventilator and a Jean Prouve inspired pantry. The Carrera and Calcutta Gold marble bathrooms are based on 1920s art deco and European luxury hotel designs. So who's selling this place, and just how eager are they to get rid of their creation?
The apartment last sold in 2004 to one Rhiannon Kubicka, director of a Lower East Side art gallery. Kubicka and her husband discussed their two-year renovation with the Times in 2007, leading the Times to conclude "it's unlikely they will be shipping out soon." But now they appear eager to leave: the place has been listed on and off since 2009, when it was first asking $9.95 million, then $7.995 million, and now $7.495 million.
Here's the floorplan:
