This extraordinarily sophisticated, 2 bedroom, 2.5-bathroom duplex condominium home combines historical heritage with contemporary living. Located in the original 19th century headquarters of Tiffany & Company, framed by the original cast iron arches and wrapped with modern black zinc and glass facade, this residence is a monumental achievement of stunning architecture, authentic style and refined modern luxury.
Imagined by world class design icon, Vicente Wolf, and enhanced by the current owner's elegant touches, the grand living room is awe-inspiring with soaring 16' ceilings and floor-to-ceiling-windows to match. Lovers of art and other beautiful collections will appreciate plenty of wall and shelf space to display their most cherished possessions. Blending seamlessly with the living room, the open concept eat-in-kitchen and spacious dining area offer the most comfortable setting for socializing and entertaining. The kitchen features marble Calcutta Gold countertops, stainless steel base with custom turned Mahogany legs, chef grade, best-in-class appliances and sleek cabinets of lime-rubbed oak with bronze frames. Completing this lower level is the Mahogany paneled powder room with stainless steel toilet and marble sink.
The dramatic freestanding stainless steel and clear glass staircase flows on to the upper level into the private living quarters. The master suite offers relaxing comfort, 2 walk-in closets, and a stylish 17-foot wide bathroom featuring a glass enclosed wet room with a free-standing claw-foot-tub and a separate free-standing shower. The master bathroom is finished with stone walls and floors throughout, translucent double vanity sinks with Shagreen panels, Sherle Wagner fixtures, and Pietra Bedonia sandstone countertop.
The 2nd bedroom offers its own elegant en-suite bathroom with travertine marble flooring, back painted glass tile and bleached oak vanity. A stately, art-gallery like corridor complements the upper level together with extra storage space, additional access door, and a washer/dryer.
15 USW is one of the finest boutique buildings downtown. With only 36 residences, located right at the heart of Union Square, the location is superb and the services resemble a 5-star hotel. Residents enjoy 24/7 doorman and concierge service, a 50' lap pool, spa, fitness center and Yoga/Pilates studio.
