“Once in a while a home comes along that is so special and so well designed that it raises the bar for city living,” says the brokerbabble for this full-floor loft, asking $6.995 million, and honestly, we can’t say we disagree.
The 4,000-square-foot loft received a renovation helmed by the interior design team at Studio DB and was remastered not only into a sleek and stylish apartment, but also an indoor playground for both children and adults.
A private elevator leads to a foyer that then takes you into the “great room” where there are 11-foot high ceilings, custom bookshelves, and 14 windows that allow for multiple exposures. There is an open chef’s kitchen with a 17-foot breakfast island and top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances.
There are six bedrooms, including a master suite that features a private office, a custom built-out walk-in closet, and a master bathroom with heated floors and marble tiles. Four of the bedrooms are connected by a “raised tunnel that one can climb up to from each room.” Per the listing description, “this tunnel is large enough for adults and has been outfitted with a spiral slide at the end which lands in the corner playroom/den.”
While the spiral slide is impressive, it’s the fully operational zip line (!), attached to the ceiling of the lengthy hallway outside of the four adjacent bedrooms, that is the showstopper. Just imagine how epic the playdates will be. (h/t New York Post)
