“Small but perfect” describes this tiny two-bedroom condo located on a private, gated lane off iconic Great Jones Street. The condos, built in 2016, were designed by BKSK for an intimate lifestyle in the desirable NoHo neighborhood. Now the 1,778 square foot apartment is available for $5.295 million, listed by Susan Green at Compass.
The space was designed by renowned architect Giancarlo Valle. Rooms feature 10ft ceilings, custom cement finishes, crown molding, exposed beam ceilings and tall windows. The great room, with windows that open onto a Juliet balcony, features bespoke furniture designed by Valle (so many round cushions) and two stunning oxidized brass light fixtures. The fixtures are designed to resemble a crown of feathers, but they also resemble the top of a palm tree and more prosaically, a mop. Note the interesting sculpture/screen in the dining room whose shape echoes that of the table. It’s a piece of bent oak from a shop in Copenhagen.
The open kitchen features custom blue cabinetry, Calacatta marble countertops, what looks like a zellige tile backsplash and range hood, and Gaggenau appliances: a five-burner gas cooktop, wall oven, combi steamer, fridge in the bow, dishwasher, microwave drawer and wine fridge.
There are two bedrooms; the master is large enough for a king-size bed, as well as a Belgian linen and oak wardrobe, as well as a small sitting area with round cushions. A lime green silk carpet covers the floor. Do you have even more clothes? Three wardrobes, including a spacious walk-in closet, should be able to contain everything. The adjoining bathroom, fitted with teak and quartzite, includes a steam rain shower and bathtub, as well as a floating double vanity.
The second bedroom is converted into a library or boudoir. Lined with shelves, the whole room is painted in a cinnabar color; we assume the custom made couch by Valle would lead with the condo. Yeah, no more round cushions. Here the rug is another citrus hue, a polka dot lemon, as opposed to lime in the master and orange in the great room. The bathroom is equally bold with Vermont verde antique serpentine stone, textured black tiles, Moroccan sink and red antique mirror.
Building facilities include a 24-hour doorman, garden and residents’ lounge. Spa facilities include a fitness center with a yoga room, locker rooms with showers, three thermal baths, a glass-enclosed steam room, and a treatment room. Building storage is included in the sale.
