Can a $2.9 million duplex Tribeca penthouse become a $5.295 million duplex Tribeca penthouse? That is the, well, $5.295 million question on the minds of the sellers and broker of the penthouse at 58 Walker Street, which popped up on the market a few days back for that higher price. When it was last on the market in 2011, the apartment's price dipped as low as $2.9 million (from a high of $3.7M). These days the listing is loftier and more staged, with more comprehensive brokerbabble:
In the living room you will find soaring 16 foot ceilings, a wood burning fireplace and original exposed brink that has been restored to its original beauty. The open chefs kitchen is outfitted with an externally-powered indoor grille, restaurant grade ventilation hood and GE Monogram appliances. 2 north facing bedrooms and 2 bathrooms complete this floor. The second floor is open and currently serves as the dining loggia, with a 100+ bottle custom wine bin, wine bar, wine refrigerator and half bathroom.
The old listing is certainly more sparse. Have a look:
