Located on a quintessential cobbled Soho street in The New Museum Building, a fine pre-war loft landmark, this extraordinarily voluminous home offers roughly 7,000sf of duplexed space in a discreet full service building with entrances both off Mercer and Broadway. The elevator opens directly into the apartment foyer on the upper level. Immediately you are presented with the impressively scaled living space that spans the full width of the building (almost 50 feet)with superb Eastern light that streams through 6 enormous arched windows. A wood-burning fireplace invites relaxation and intimate conversation and separates the living area from the vast dining room, prefect for formal and casual dining. A massive open kitchen adjoins with custom crafted wood cabinetry with stone countertops and A-grade appliances, perfect for catering to a meal for two or a gathering of 100. Separated to the West is the bedroom wing comprising 4 bedrooms, three full bathrooms, one half bathroom, a large laundry room, a lounging area and a utility storeroom. These rooms benefit by multiple additional windows that fill the rooms with light all day long. A grand stairway leads downstairs to a large media room or great room, with soaring 12 foot ceilings, exposed iconic columns and massive windows with dreamy Eastern light. The Master bedroom is also located on this floor and features another wood burning fireplace, dramatically scaled walk-in closets and a large en-suite marble bathroom featuring a deep soaking tub, twin showers and dual sinks. An additional library is a bonus room that is flexible with a murphy bed and a full en suite bathroom. Additionally there is a wet bar, a powder room, and a large storage room. This home boasts extraordinary storage throughout as well as an additional storage area in the building. Constructed in 1895, 158 Mercer Street is a highly desirable 12-story, 22-unit condominium that was converted in 1996 and features amenities such as a 24 hour doorman/concierge, an additional and separate entrance on Broadway, two elevator banks, a storage room, bike storage, and a beautifully landscaped common roof terrace. This home represents Soho living on a grand scale at its very best.
