Billed as "extraordinarily voluminous"—not an overstatement—this Soho duplex proves that there’s plenty of space in lower Manhattan, just as long as you’ve got $12.25M to pay for it.
Located in the old New Museum building, this five-bedroom condo offers more than 7,000 square feet of open space. The elevator opens directly into a foyer, which in turn leads into an "impressively scaled" living area, which spans the entire width of the building and offers an entire wall’s worth of "enormous arched windows." (Are you noticing a theme here?) The kitchen—"massive," obviously—is decked out with all the expected amenities, making it "perfect for catering to a meal for two or a gathering of 100." The upper floor also houses four rather sizable bedrooms, three full bathrooms, and one half bath.
The downstairs is no less grand. A sweeping staircase leads into a great room, which boasts 12-foot ceilings, more huge windows, and a handful of exposed Ionic columns. The master bedroom features "dramatically scaled" closets, and a "large" en suite bathroom, equipped with a soaking tub, twin showers, and dual sinks. There’s also a library (with a Murphy bed), another full bath, a wet bar, a powder room, and an abundance of storage.
Should you be hosting 101 guests, fear not: the building also offers a common roof terrace.
