The {Real Estate} Life: 55 Mercer Street

I’m so excited to have this incredible, stylish, SoHo building available for our clients to call home!  It was a great pleasure to collaborate with our agent Sacha Mobarak in marketing this listing.  Working on lifestyle marketing for buildings in New York City is one of my passions!  55 Mercer Street is a dream space in SoHo that combines luxury living with original charm – the best of New York.

Get to know 55 Mercer Street:

55 Mercer Street, a historic 19th century cast-iron faced building, provides intimate private living at the crossroads of the world.  The building has been newly renovated and houses four meticulously crafted three-bedroom floor-through loft apartments that epitomize modern luxury living.  Designed by Griffith Thomas, who was dubbed by the American Institute of Architects  “the most fashionable architect of his generation”, this 1871 Italianate masterpiece evokes the inimitable character of SoHo.  The building lies on one of the area’s more tranquil streets, yet is steps away from some of the city’s chicest shops.  Its scale, materials, and gorgeous period detailing make it an exemplar of the landmarked Cast-Iron Historic District.  55 Mercer elegantly combines its mercantile factory roots with understated luxury living.

Apartment Description:

55 Mercer houses four full-floor, three-bedroom, three and a half bathroom, loft-style apartments that combine the best of modern convenience and design, with distinctive original details. The keyed elevator opens to a spacious and beautiful living area. These units boast exposures on all four sides. Abundant light pours through a wall of large re-milled windows in the airy living room, while the original exposed wooden beams of the high ceilings lend a beautiful warmth and patina to the space. The modern open chef’s kitchen is appointed with state-of-the-art appliances, Chroma counters, and walnut cabinetry, a lovely counterpoint to the exposed brick walls. All of the apartment’s bedrooms feature large steel casement windows, recessed lighting, expansive closets, and cherry-finished oak hardwood flooring.  The master suite, drenched in sun from its two walls of western and southern exposures, features a spacious walk-in closet and a lavish private bathroom with walk in shower and free-standing cast iron tub.  Pocket doors can help turn the area into a private oasis; the perfect place to relax and look out over SoHo’s classic rooftops -graced with charming terraces and timeless water towers. Accents such as  “subway” tiling, functional laundry room, Apple ipad controlled Crestron sound and lighting system, and high-end fixtures, lend a modern, minimalist touch to each Apartment.  Finished with superb attention to detail, master craftsmanship, and with an eye toward the discerning customer, 55 Mercer offers a singular downtown experience.
