497 Greenwich Street Penthouse

497 Greenwich Street Penthouse in SoHo

This Penthouse atop iconic 497 Greenwich Street has been meticulously crafted to exceed conventional luxury standards, and customized to enhance the prolific architecture of Winka Dubbeldam, perched at the crossroads of West Soho, Tribeca and the West Village.
The triple mint, never lived in 3,500+ square foot duplex, is a work of un-paralleled sculptural architecture: The creation of something beautiful and thought-provoking is an abstract turned reality with a unique façade of double story, western exposed glass, through which one can view sunsets over the Hudson River and the Statue of Liberty from every vantage point in the apartment.
This spectacular backdrop provided the canvas for interior architect Sally Rigg to draw from the world’s best materials, appliances and fixtures, to stylishly landmark this Penthouse with its deserved global renown. The grand living spaces, replete with gas fireplace and home theatre, lead to a magnificent terrace that runs the full width (almost 50ft) of the property facing West. The kitchen is fully customized by Boffi, with Miele, Sub Zero and Gaggenau appliances: adjoining is an intimate, glamorous dining area.
There is a guest bedroom suite, or study, on this floor and a powder room. Upstairs the seductive Master bedroom features a dramatic en suite bathroom with a free-standing tub: the two walk in closets are equally impressive. An additional bedroom suite features a private terrace. An elevated study can also serve as a fourth bedroom and there is an additional half bathroom: the windowed laundry room is an amenity both luxurious and practical. With the entire home outfitted by SONOS’s ZonePlayer and ceiling speakers in every room, the audio experience of the Penthouse is commanding without intruding into the aesthetic.
Form meets function with the 1,500+ square foot landscaped private rooftop terrace, that seamlessly marries a gracious, open living room with an outdoor kitchen/wet bar. With every necessity of lifestyle finery catered to, the crown is the signature illustration of New York City opulence: a Sky Dining Terrace located on the roof’s highest point that will leave even the most discerning critic breathless.
The building amenities exemplify a thoughtfully conceived, boutique residence of a superior caliber: a chic, well equipped gym with natural daylight, sauna, endless swimming pool, wine cellar, full time doorman, screening room, meeting room, guest suite, and landscaped courtyard complete the picture.
