Property Description for 140 Franklin Street, 2-B

Located in Tribeca's most important landmark building, 140 Franklin Street is a majestic apartment like no other, a stylish urban mansion that affords unrivaled space, privacy and luxury. In this singular and sophisticated home, you'll find an astonishing 6,300 square-feet of space, all on one floor, with a sprawling 7-bedroom layout and impeccable attention to detail throughout. From the moment you step off the semi-private landing into the glamorous foyer, you know you've arrived someplace special. A wide entrance gallery sets the tone and leads to one of Manhattan's most magnificent entertaining spaces, an unprecedented 100-foot expanse with soaring ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace, gorgeous wide plank oak floors, massive original steel columns and open views of the surrounding historic district from a wall of enormous windows. The sense of light, scale, volume and proportion is truly spectacular and showcases multiple seating areas, each creating their own intimate experience without compromising the openness and integrity of the loft.

At one end of this massive room, dramatic floor-to-ceiling casement doors open to a sumptuous corner Library bathed in natural light and featuring a wall of custom bookshelves, built-in desks and exquisite custom-milled cabinetry. Just beyond, you'll find the open state-of-the-art chef's kitchen and adjacent dining area with banquette seating. Anchored by an enormous marble center-island and framed by original steel columns, this incredible kitchen with separate butler's pantry is ideal for one who loves to cook and entertain and features deep marble countertops, abundant custom cabinetry and top-of-the-line appliances including dual SubZero refrigerators, multiple freezer drawers, double Wolf ovens, a Miele dishwasher and a 6-burner professional cooktop with griddle vented to the outside. Nearby, a custom wet-bar adds convenience and houses a 50-bottle temperature-controlled wine fridge.

Beyond the entertaining space, a series of hallways separate public from private and lead to three distinct bedroom zones. The palatial primary bedroom suite is a loft unto itself that features a large separate sitting area, two enormous custom-fitted dressing rooms and a luxurious en-suite bathroom clad in hand-cut mosaic tiles with under floor heating, a custom double vanity, separate W/C with bidet, an oversized steam shower and a freestanding Clearwater soaking tub for two. Off of the entrance foyer, a separate vestibule leads to 4 additional bedrooms, each with fitted wardrobes, a separate lounge area currently used as a giant playroom, and two tastefully renovated bathrooms. At the opposite end of the living room, a private hallway leads two more bedrooms, ideal for guests or staff, and a beautiful Bisazza tiled bathroom.

Every inch of this stunning home has been carefully curated with the utmost comfort and luxury in mind. Additional amenities include multi-zoned central air-conditioning, a large separate laundry room, custom Lutron lighting and motorized shades on keypads throughout, a custom A/V system with in-ceiling speakers in all major rooms and a tasteful powder room for guests. No expense spared!

Built in 1887 and designed by noted architect Albert Wagner in the Romanesque Revival style, the iconic 6-story boutique condominium features a 24-hour doorman, porter, full-time superintendent and a remarkable lobby with a dramatic mural commissioned by the acclaimed conceptual artist Sol Lewitt. Additionally, the apartment comes with two large storage units in the basement that are currently being used for wine storage. And of course, there's the prime Franklin Street location, putting you right in the heart of Tribeca's historic district with great restaurants, shopping, authentic architecture, highly rated schools and all major modes of public transport right at your doorstep. A truly extraordinarily offering in Downtown's most desirable location!

Tribeca | Manhattan

Quick Profile

TriBeCa, named after the small geographic triangle below Canal Street. It’s not really a triangle, it's a quadrilateral and it's bounded by West Street, Broadway, and Chambers Street. It’s a little too late for a name change and besides, QuaBeCa doesn't sound half as cool as Tribeca.  

One of New York City’s more notable acronymed neighborhoods, TriBeCa is known for its trendy boutiques, fabolous restaurants, historical landmarks, and resident celebrity lofts. It still holds the title of one of the coolest places to live in New York City. 

TriBeCa is one of the first residential neighborhoods of New York City. Way back in 1700’s wealthy New Yorkers built homes and maintained gardens in what is now TriBeca. 

Later in history it shifted from residential to warehouses, commerce and markets. After the Civil War, shipping hubs moved from the East River to the Hudson River and revitalized areas like the South Street Seaport and TriBeca. When shipping and commerce increased, the area soon became a favorite spot for wholesalers to store their goods in large industrial warehouses. 

Just like its neighbor SoHo, TriBeCa boasts one of the world’s largest collections of wrought-iron facades and Neo-Grecian architecture.
