Perry Street Triplex, Estate of the Day
I mentioned this one on Sunday as part of the real estate round-up but Curbed's post on it helped me decided that the listing pictures are worth a post of their own. The Wall Street Journal's Private Properties column first reported that Sun Microsystems co-founder Bill Joy put his triplex in the 176 Perry Street building designed by Richard Meier on the market. Joy bought the condo for $17.57 million and is now asking $40 million for the 11,000-square-foot home. The unit is the largest in the building and takes up the eighth, ninth and 10th floors. There are expansive views of the Hudson River from many rooms include the huge double-height living room. The home includes a gourmet kitchen, large dining room, a huge recreation room and a small wine cellar. There are five bedrooms total including a master bedroom with an exercise area, bath, sauna and dressing areas. Each floor has a terrace and the most amazing feature of the home is the dramatic swirled staircase. The home is a masterpiece of blinding white and linear space but is it livable? It seems more like incredibly chic office space.
