The first thing to know about this 7 Hubert Street penthouse is that it isn't the one with the private jogging track. That one, #PHC, sold for $11.5 million after hitting the market in 2009 with an ask of $14.5 million. Which brings us to today's question: how can the new-to-market #PHB expect to get its asking price of $17.5 million? (The square footage of each penthouse is around 4,200.) Ace broker Raphael De Niro has the listing, so let's check out his brokerbabble, shall we?
The expansive living room offers plenty of room to spread out. Lounge in the media/study or relax by the bronze clad wood burning fireplace. An open dining room acts as the gallery to the artfully designed Bulthaup chef's kitchen. Stainless steel, aluminum, marble, glass and oak gleam as if beseeching one to run a hand across the surfaces. Tread on Italian Basaltina along custom teak closets, doors and trim, past the artistically created powder room toward the warm wenge floored living quarters where you will find two guestrooms, each with ensuite baths dressed in Dornbracht fixtures and rich gold toned Calcutta, St. Laurent and snow white Thassos marbles.
And it continues:
The master suite, including a dressing room/walk-in closet and a corner private study, occupies the southeast and west corners of the home showcasing the new World Trade Center, broad river views and consummate air and light. The windowed master bathroom, robed in rich marble, Japanese double acid etched glass and sycamore features Dornbracht fixtures and a Boffi deep soaking tub. A Crestron surround sound system sets the tone while Lutron lighting and automated shades set the mood. As functional as it is handsome, the loft is complete with a vented laundry room, walk-in linen closet and double sized private storage in the basement. Take a look at the floorplan below. So what price will this place ultimately fetch?
