Dream homes come in all shapes, sizes, textures and colors. Either placed on the ground of an exclusive estate, on a lot in the middle of a busy city or high up above city lights, luxurious homes always draw the eye with their customized design. Today’s dream home is a fascinating penthouse in Soho designed by Piero Manara in collaboration with Debla Manara-Berger of Casamanara.
Capturing panoramic views of the city that never sleeps, this $32 million penthouse at 383 West Broadway in Soho makes you dream about a carefree lifestyle that only a few had the pleasure of understanding. Harmoniously blending light from massive windows and skylights with exclusive details and a carefully chosen color palette, this luxurious penthouse apartment boasts a spacious living room. Here, caught in-between two oversized windows framing city details, a roaring fireplace finished with polished Eramosa marble consumes the air and your worries, leaving you and your guests relaxed and joyful.
Showcasing four bedrooms, five bathrooms, a home office, a cinema/media room, a gym, a spa bathroom and a housekeeper/massage room, the luxury New York penthouse is lined with white oak hardwood floors throughout and finishes in creamy-white venetian plaster decorate most of the walls. The cooking area below the mezzanine is nothing short of sophisticated: “A dumbwaiter services the rooftop kitchen and entertaining space and there is direct staff access through the laundry room that houses an oversized washer and dryer with a large sink and Corian counter top.”
Accommodating astounding functions like the 1,500-bottle glass-encased, climate controlled wine cellar with a Sub Zero fridge for wine and champagne, this home above the clouds fluidly mixes indoor and outdoor living.
Once you step out to the roof terrace, feelings of power and beatitude rush over you and you suddenly realize where you are. With a 360º panorama of New York, where the Empire State Building and the new Freedom Tower steal the show, this Ipe wood-covered terrace is complete with an outdoor shower for unforgettable moments under the stars. And to know that this is your home … now that’s a unique feeling.
