Merchant House penthouse with rooftop gardens

Perched atop the Merchant’s House is this sprawling, light-filled penthouse in TriBeCa, New York. The duplex six-bedroom home is comprised of over 6,800 square feet of living space complemented by 3,000 square feet of private outdoor gardens. The home is a combination of two apartments, thereby resulting in 1,200 square feet of additional, bonus living space linking the northern and southern wings dedicated for the exclusive use of the penthouse apartment owner.

The north wing of the home features the grand, contemporary great room with 17 foot ceilings and 50 feet of floor-to-ceiling windows and a continuous skylight overhead. Sitting areas are complemented by a gas fireplace, wet bar and integrated surround sound. From the great room’s sliding glass doors, the Japanese garden landscaped by Shin Abe completes the serene, airy space. An exquisite custom-made floating staircase leads to the two bedrooms in this wing, both open and bright with en-suite baths. The restaurant-grade kitchen is stainless steel from top to bottom. Flanking the kitchen is both a spacious china closet and over-sized climate controlled wine room.

In the southern wing of the loft, a formal living room opens onto the southern terrace, home to an elegant flower garden. A large bedroom facing the garden completes this level. Upstairs includes the master suite, two guest bedrooms, another full bath and laundry room. With Wi-Fi throughout, a 7-line Panasonic phone system, closed-circuit security cameras, satellite television and very generous private storage in the building. Built in 1905, the Romanesque Merchant’s House is a boutique, loft condominium with a private garage.
