At  5,985 square feet, the duplex penthouse at 11 Beach Street in New York City’s Tribeca neighborhood is really an estate in the sky. Built in 1910, the 10-story, loft building has been converted into 27 homes. The residences range from 3 to 5 bedrooms and include lofts, penthouses, and townhouses.

All of the interiors were designed by acclaimed Danish architect and designer Thomas Juul-Hansen (who also designed all the interiors for One57, and has done restaurants for Jean-Georges Vongerichten and private homes for clients like music executive Damon Dash and telecom mogul Michael Hirtenstein).

A staircase leads to a 1,788-square-foot private rooftop terrace with stellar views of South and West Manhattan. It’s one of the biggest private outdoor spaces available right now downtown. In addition, on the first floor, there is a 13 x 10 terrace, off of an enormous 44-foot long great room.

The master suite is also incredibly impressive; it has three walk-in closets, and two master bathrooms, which feature a private sauna, a soaking tub, and separate showers.


Upon entering through exclusive elevator access a graceful foyer opens to the impressive 44 ft long great room with south facing, over-sized casement windows, dining area, and 13 x 10 ft terrace.

The eat-in-chef’s kitchen features an island breakfast bar, walk-in pantry, side-by-side refrigerators, oversized wine cabinets, dual wall ovens, built-in burners, and oversized dishwashers, all outfitted by Sub-Zero and Miele.

Just past the media room, a spacious gallery hallway leads to the secondary bedroom wing, where three bedrooms feature east exposure windows and en-suite baths.

Building amenities include a skylit gymnasium, a children’s room, and a roofdeck. This home is listed for $19.95 million with Melanie Lazenby, Dina Lewis, Holly Parker, and Trisha Riedel of Douglas Elliman.
