At 133 Mulberry Street in Downtown Manhattan, we find this delightful penthouse loft that offers modern amenities and style in a bustling, down-to-earth area filled with vibrant, walkable neighborhood dining and shopping opportunities.
The building opens right into Little Italy, and Chinatown is steps away. So are no less than five subway lines. This penthouse is right where the personality is, but its no-nonsense interior style makes it an oasis of purity and serenity.
Exposed pipes and ductwork can be one of the most charming features of loft conversions. They offer a hint of industrial style that acknowledges the historic legacy of the building and creates unpretentious visual interest. We also like the floors (heated, by the way!), whose white oak wide planks are neither too rustic nor too polished for this space.
In the kitchen, the choice of walnut with horizontal grain juxtaposes a touch of midcentury warmth with the trendy contemporary neutrals of the walls and trim. The floor plan of this unit is open and flexible, in keeping with the loft aesthetic. Working with the historic columns, it’s easy to preserve a sense of spaciousness while designing cozy nooks for dining, relaxing, and working. There’s a flex room that can host hobbies or serve as a third bedroom.
This property offers all of the luxury of new development as well as the unique character that comes with living within the walls of a building erected in 1893, says AnneMarie Tamis-Nasello, Corcoran’s real estate agent who teamed up with Rick Kelly to market the property. The high, 11-foot ceilings and the columns are part of the original construction, of course. Besides looking great, the extra height can also help keep a penthouse cooler in the summer.
But the developers have spared no expense to improve the unit with modern comforts. The kitchen appliances are from the best of Wolf and Bosch. The Velux skylights with included blinds open and close at the touch of a button, and the LG climate control is intelligently partitioned into four zones to maximize efficiency and comfort.
To top it all off, this unit comes with a private rooftop cabana. It’s perfect for al fresco dining, entertaining, and relaxing amidst fabulous city views. It’s accessible by elevator, too.
