Birth of Cool: Inside the $7 million loft that was once a recording studio for Frank Sinatra
The apartment was formerly Duplex Sound, where Earth, Wind & Fire also recorded. With almost 45 feet of south-west-facing, sunny frontage overlooking Tribeca Park with its majestic London Plane trees, this centrally located authentic 5-bedroom loft with massive arched windows used to be home to the recording studio of world-renowned musicians including Earth, Wind & Fire, not to mention some of the most notable names in fashion.
The entry foyer leads past two large closets and a powder room into the enormous great room, the perfect setting for entertaining and living on a grand scale. Tall ceilings further enhance the majestic pre-war architectural details that abound throughout this home. This L-shaped room leads you to a dining area abutting the open kitchen, perfectly outfitted with high-end appliances and an abundance of cabinet space.
A hallway leads you down to the bedroom wing that currently houses 4 bedrooms facing quiet St. Johns Lane with two full bathrooms, outstanding closet space (There is additional private storage), and a laundry room. A flight of stairs leads you upstairs to the private Master Bedroom Suite with its large walk-in closet and a large, windowed bathroom with a huge jet tub, dual shower-head shower, and twin sinks.
While this apartment is outstanding, its location may be even more so, located centrally in the heart of Tribeca in close proximity to all transportation, restaurants, retail and more. Soho is a few blocks to the South and the Hudson River Park is a few minutes to the West. The American Thread building constructed in 1894, represents the best of Renaissance Revival architecture combining an elegant palette of limestone and brick, a neighborhood landmark for well over a century. The condominium building offers a 24-hour doorman, a roof deck, gym and bike room.
