Spend enough time in this bedroom and you might feel like you’re riding the Orient Express in a luxury sleeping cabin. All aboard! Next stop, the latest edition of our “One Room” series.
Penthouse E at 72 Mercer Street in Soho is a grandiose triplex that spans more than 5.200 square feet across a combination of indoor and outdoor space. One of the rooms, a child’s bedroom, immediately caught our eye due to it’s ingenious design.
Custom crafted bunk beds are the focal point of this cozy room. These aren’t just any bunk beds. They are accessible by a wide rung wooden ladder and surrounded by custom built-in bookshelves and sliding drawers. It’s the kind of place where the child in you might want to stowaway for a while and catch up on some overdue reading. Recessed ceiling lighting, chrome sconces and reading lights in the bunk beds gives new meaning to the term mood lighting.
The curtains on the bunk beds, just like the ones on sleeper trains, allow for ultimate privacy. A generously sized closet and a seating area completes the room. Just outside the quarters there is a shared bathroom with high end fixtures.
Seeing double. There is an adjoining bedroom identical to this one. Same double bed design, same built-ins, same lighting. Only difference is the finish. The two rooms share a balcony overlooking Mercer Street. Sounds like the start of an Agatha Christie novel.
This opulent four bedroom home offers three floors of exquisite craftsmanship and divine comfort. Just leave your wish list at the door; it’s all here. And if you want to seek refuge outside, the home also has a phenomenal two-story private roof deck which offers a full array of goodies.
