A Puck Penthouse Hits The Market For $35 Million

Manhattan’s Puck Building, located at the intersection of Nolita, the Bowery, Soho and Greenwich Village, was built between 1886 and 1893, an example of the German Rundbogenstiel (round-arch) style of architecture designed by Albert Wagner. The building is owned by Kushner Properties, the company of Charles Kushner and his son, Jared, son-in-law of former President Donald Trump.

The red brick building, which occupies the block between Lafayette, Houston, Mulberry and Jersey Streets, is distinguished by – and named for – the two gold statues of Shakespeare’s character Puck, from A Midsummer Night’s Dream, by sculptor Henry Baerer, one on the northeast corner at Houston and Mulberry streets, and one over the main entrance on Lafayette Street.

In 2011, Jared Kushner sought approval from the Landmarks Preservation Commission to erect six penthouse apartments at the top of the red-brick building and, after initially being turned down, Kushner made two modifications and his plans were approved. The first of the six units closed in May 2014, selling for $28 million.

Now, penthouse 4 is for sale for $35 Million, offered jointly by Jeremy Stein of Sotheby’s International Realty – Downtown Manhattan Brokerage and Dana Power of Corcoran. With four bedrooms and five and one-half baths, the indoor space measures 5,919 square feet. But what makes this condominium especially sought-after in Manhattan is the wraparound terrace, which offers over 2,027 square feet of seating and dining areas alongside a hot tub, fountain, 55-inch outdoor television and delightful willow pergola. Ipe decking and limestone pavers are accented by lush landscaping, while iconic skyline views to the north rise above the 5,000 square foot viewing garden.

Barrel-vaulted brick ceilings distinguish the interior, which marries historic architecture to contemporary chic. The great room welcomes lavish entertaining surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows, custom metalized wood-plank ceilings, bold columns and pony hair-upholstered wall panels.

Home chefs will love to work in the kitchen, a perfect combination of form and function. Pearlized brick barrel-vaulted ceilings and designer pendants rise over the massive marble island featuring “chef’s table” dining for four. Custom cabinetry and marble countertops surround an impressive suite of state-of-the-art appliances anchored by a magnificent La Cornue range, while stainless steel and glass doors conceal the space for entertaining. The adjacent sunken media room, cloaked in padded wool walls and custom millwork, invites after-dinner drinks at the custom bar, and a home theater with Sonance surround sound system delivers a world-class entertainment experience.

Luxurious bedrooms are nestled in the residence’s southern wing for optimal peace and privacy. Awake to extraordinary eastern light in the decadent owner’s retreat featuring blackened steel, bronze and oak finishes softened by mohair wall treatments, drapes and motorized shades. Two separate full bathrooms boast soaking tubs, steam showers, Toto commodes and hidden Seura televisions. The two exquisite dressing rooms are finished with full-height solid white oak cabinetry, while an adjacent home office and home gym add outstanding convenience. Three exceptional secondary suites with private bathrooms and superb custom closets provide opulent accommodations for family and friends.

A massive utility room includes two washers, two dryers, a full-height Sub-Zero wine refrigerator and a sink surrounded by custom cabinetry. The Savant smart home system controls sound, lighting, temperature and security, while a custom HVAC system ensures year-round comfort in this unrivaled showplace
