Welcome to 132 Duane Street, a rare and utterly charming condominium loft that captures the true spirit and essence of historic Tribeca. Hidden behind a 19th-century Italianate facade, you'll find this serene and classically proportioned full-floor loft in pristine condition with grand-scaled rooms, soaring ceilings and a sense of peace and tranquility that is so hard to find in New York City. Step off the key-locked elevator to a dramatic Living/Dining room with 13-foot ceilings, exposed brick walls, original maple floors, and bright exposures through a wall of floor-to-ceiling arched windows. The multi-sided chef's kitchen with center-island is open to the entertaining area and features deep stainless steel countertops, abundant maple cabinetry, and top-of-the-line Bosch and Thermador appliances including a 5-burner cooktop vented to the outside. Just beyond, a large, comfortable media area provides the perfect spot for watching movies or hanging out with family and friends. Nearby, an architecturally striking staircase leads up to a mezzanine Library with custom bookshelves and a cozy study nook ideal for reading your favorite book (or writing your own). Beyond the Living room, a long hallway lined with floor-to-ceiling storage closets leads to the private wing of this spacious and flexible home where you'll find 2 interior bedrooms, a full bathroom, a large office with custom-milled bookshelves, and an enormous sun-drenched artist studio which can easily convert to additional bedrooms and bathrooms. Additional amenities include central air-conditioning, a washer-dryer, abundant storage space, custom Lutron lighting on dimmers, and a separate powder room for guests.
Built in 1860 and converted to a boutique 5-unit condominium in 2002, the landmarked stone and masonry building features a key-locked elevator, brand new IDor video intercom security system (compatible with your smartphone), a visiting superintendent and private dedicated locked storage in the basement. And of course, there's the prime location, putting you on one of Tribeca's most sought-after and historically significant blocks with the neighborhood's best restaurants, parks, schools, and all major subway lines right at your doorstep. Rare and wonderful!
