Real Estate Showcase - Kitchens



The amazing and sprawling 2BR loft at 195 Hudson between Vestry and Desbrosses Streets in Tribeca has a breathtaking open mosaic-tiled kitchen that leads to a dramatic great room. Stainless steel with inserted glass upper cabinetry is paired perfectly with the granite-topped wood and stainless cabinetry below. A large island with several stainless-steel storage drawers, including one for holding baking trays and a gorgeous burnt red leather banquette big enough for five guests are focal points. Appliances are from Viking and Fisher & Paykel—and there is a wine fridge for storing favorite vintages. Of the two custom-designed bathrooms, one has a sunken Jacuzzi tub and the great room has a wood-burning fireplace and stunning dining area. Other standouts are a parking space downstairs in the building’s garage and a large rooftop deck boasting Hudson River views. This home gets extra credit for being in the highly-touted P.S. 234 public school district. $2.85 million.



Inside the 106-unit Cipriani Residences at 55 Wall Street are a mix of smartly-styled Club residences. A mix of 1, 2 and 3BR homes (including 1BR duplexes and a penthouse with huge amounts of open space) ranging from 1,000 to 2,200 sf—each comes fully furnished with the option to choose from three styles—Classic, Sleek and Eclectic. Lucky chefs can cook up a meal inside Tsao & McKown’s sleekly-designed kitchens where ebony wood and off-white satin spray lacquer cabinetry are topped off in Absolute Black granite. Appliances, courtesy of Sub-Zero, Miele and Bosch, are all cleverly concealed and integrated. Perfect complements for entertaining to the max, the open kitchens (some are windowed and the 2BRs have fabulous islands) come with Vinotemp wine coolers and Bosch espresso machines. Your purchase includes a two-year membership at the very private and utterly exclusive on-site Cipriani Club. Summer 2006. From $850,000.

Attention all foodies! The chef’s kitchen inside this palatial duplex penthouse loft at 260 Fifth between 28th and 29th Streets is top-drawer. The multi-windowed kitchen serves up million-dollar views along with custom-designed maple cabinetry, a butcher-block island and honed lava gold countertops—and appliances are brought to you by Wolf, Sub-Zero and Miele. Serve casual fare smack dab in the middle of the kitchen, under a vaulted glass ceiling in the enormous, 750sf sun-filled solarium boasting its own wet bar, or al fresco on its adjacent 1,500sf rooftop terrace. For fancy fetes, consider the formal dining room. In addition to panoramic views of Manhattan and beyond, you’ll have keyed elevator access to this 4,500sf, 2BR, 3.5bth co-op that also features a master bath with a sauna, steam shower and Jacuzzi, a media room as well as a utility room for storing plenty of bottles from your collection. $4.6 million.

“Buyers seek high design coupled with convenient and cutting-edge fixtures,” said Laurie Zucker of Manhattan Skyline Management. “We are seeing a trend where developers provide upscale, urban loft-type living spaces where kitchens become the heart of the home, flowing together with great rooms to create one great living environment. As a result, finishes of high-end wood, glass, tile and stone are a given.”
