Noho's Bond Street, in addition to being one of our favorite blocks in Manhattan, is a magical place where even the oddest of architectural and design decisions often end up working out. Take the apartment above, the fifth floor at 50 Bond Street. Neither the orange hallway nor the sheep in the living area lower our enthusiasm for the place. It sold in 2004 for $1.995 million and is now for sale again with an ask of $6.375 million. It appears an architect customized the place in the meantime. The brokerbabble explains:
The West wall has been purposefully designed to showcase the owner's art collection and also serves as a beautiful back drop to the dining area which comfortably seats twenty. Opposite the gallery wall is an expanse of visually stunning custom storage and bookcases. The spacious chef's kitchen is offset from an elegant full height bar and features a Pietra Cardosa granite island, dual Subzeros, and an in-counter Gaggenau range with double ovens below. A wall of black lacquer cabinetry effortlessly masks the refrigerators, built in storage and climate controlled walk in "wine room". A long hall leads to the second and third bedrooms and baths. At the end you will find a pin drop quiet master suite with a wall of North exposures, custom closets, and access to a cedar decked balcony.
