Columns, Soaring Ceilings Define This Tribeca Loft

With its mix of classic architectural details and modern touches like a keyed elevator, floating marble sinks, and a state-of-the-art movie projection system, this extra-wide Tribeca loft exudes modern downtown living.

Flawlessly renovated and newly designed by DB Studio, the three-bedroom condo at 81 Walker Street #2 has a nearly 31-foot-wide open-plan great room that’s simply breathtaking. It features distinct living and dining spaces, big walls for big art, 13-foot-plus ceilings, hardwood floors, and four north-facing oversized windows that offer wide-angle city views and flood the industrial-chic space with bright natural light.

The residence boasts a fairly straightforward floor plan, with good flow through the public entertaining and living spaces and complete privacy and quiet for the bedrooms, which are tucked into the back of the 2,600-square-foot loft.

The open kitchen has a wonderful mix of finishes and styles—marble countertops, raw wood cabinetry, open shelving, pendant lights, a Sub-Zero fridge, backsplash tiles in a herringbone pattern, and a wide island with both a sink and stool seating. The gleaming stainless-steel Wolf stove is paired with the huge hood that serious cooks appreciate. A cozy library with nearly floor-to-ceiling bookshelves sits between the kitchen, and the back bedrooms.

The primary suite features a walk-through closet, two big windows with southern exposures, and a showpiece ensuite with a freestanding soaking tub flanked by matching steam shower and water closet spaces, twin vanities, radiant heat flooring, and an antique mirror accent wall to pull it all together.

Rounding out the floor plan, the residence also has an office nook, a stylish powder room, a mudroom, and a laundry room with a utility sink. There’s loads of storage here, especially in the kitchen — plus you get a deeded 238-square-foot storage room in the basement.

Designed by Henry Fernbach and built in 1869, the exclusive building now holds five floor-through loft condos. The Walker Street location is in a highly sought-after part of the Tribeca Historic District between Lafayette Street and Cortlandt Alley — much loved by location scouts. The neighborhood is justly famous for its many top-shelf restaurants, galleries and boutique shops. Nearby parks include Hudson River Park, with its piers that jut way out into the Hudson River, and the green spaces in Battery Park City.

One of the many great things about Tribeca is its easy walkable access to nearby neighborhoods like Nolita, SoHo, Little Italy, and the Financial District. Need to hop on a train to go farther afield? That’s all here, too, with nearby subway lines that include the 1/Broadway local, the 4/5/6 green lines, the blue A/C/E, the J/Z and the yellow N/Q/R/W trains.
