Townhome 4 at 16 Warren Street in Tribeca is undoubtedly loft living at its finest. Lofts, of course, are often coveted for their high ceilings and ample natural lighting. This unit excels at both, boasting sixteen-foot high ceilings and immense, stately windows. Some lofts go for a grittier industrial look, but Townhome 4 plays up a luxuriously clean and refined aesthetic.
The main attraction has to be the spectacular great room and kitchen, where the grand ceiling and window proportions contribute to an atmosphere of expansiveness beyond the room’s ample actual dimensions. We love the muntins that partition the upper portion of the window into rectangles: this plays nicely on the boxy forms of the buildings in view across the street. The open kitchen is compact, but lavishly appointed with Miele and Sub-Zero appliances.
Can the rest of this home live up to this breathtaking space? Certainly. Each of the three bedrooms has magnificent windows, too, and the master bedroom opens onto a private balcony large enough for comfortable seating. The second bedroom features nearly floor-to-ceiling corner windows as well as its own full bath, and there’s flexible expandability into the third bedroom.
One of the most fascinating aspects of the floorplan is that the unit is entered from the center. Both levels of this home are arranged in a ring around the entryway and core of the building – a feature reminiscent of ancient Roman homes. Generous closets and additional building storage space keep clutter at bay, making for serene, flowing hallways.
You’ll find this gem located in the coveted and upscale Tribeca neighborhood on the southern end of Manhattan, just steps away from parks, rivers, and all manner of exciting urban amenities.
