Inside a renovated $ 7.2 million New York condo in Tribeca – Robb Report
It often takes a bit of living in a new home or condo to determine all the pros and cons of the pre-existing interior design. This is what happened between a young couple and their loft at 155 Franklin: after a year there, they decided it was time to do some renovations. they loaded Interior design Dumais by reworking the 2,400 square foot unit and making it cooler. Now, they’ve listed the place for $ 7.2 million, so all of those updates could be yours soon.
The house is a true loft with an open floor plan, and it is located in Tribeca overlooking Leonard Street. The building itself dates from 1882 and was originally a warehouse. Nowadays, it’s best known as a celebrity favorite: Taylor Swift has several units here (she bought one at the Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson) and Orlando Bloom overturned a condo in the building few years ago.
Since the residence for sale has such a large open space, one of the biggest challenges has been dividing it into different “rooms”. Interior designer Kevin Dumais and his team brought in furniture and decor that was a mix of bespoke pieces and vintage finds. As it is in a historic building, they worked with some of the pre-existing elements rather than against them. “The exposed ceiling, exposed beams, columns and everything else had not been touched up or renovated,” says Dumais. Robb Report. “So it was exciting, it was like a real loft.”
The kitchen has been one of the biggest updates. Dumais says the original was “difficult to maneuver,” so the team reworked the layout to make cooking and entertaining easier. The countertops are in Calacatta marble, the cabinets are all personalized with walnut interiors, and the appliances include a Subzero refrigerator, Miele dishwasher, Viking stove and Wolf oven. Storage was another priority. Dumais added a walk-in pantry to the space as well as a double-sided bar that divides the room and serves as a hallway cupboard on one side and a wine fridge on the other.
There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms in total, but the master suite is across from the other two so it feels suitably private. It includes a walk-in closet by California Closets as well as a bathroom with more Calacatta marble, a double vanity by Restoration Hardware and two rainfall showerheads.
