The only freestanding home in New York’s SoHo has listed for $7.2m – offering over 3,000-sq-ft of space in the heart of the busy neighbourhood.
The Manhattan property has only changed hands a few times since it was built in 1930 and cuts a striking figure on Broome Street, where it stands alone, surrounded by interconnected apartment blocks.
Behind its ornately moulded entrance lies a two-bedroom home with hardwood floors, beamed ceilings and a private outdoor terrace. Interiors take vintage elements, such as carved fireplaces, raftered ceilings and brickwork, and bring them into the 21st century via a monochrome colour treatment.
The townhouse has two sizeable receptions and a sizable bathroom with a corner bath overlooking the street below (some well-placed window planters maintain privacy.)
Oenophiles have plenty of space to indulge their habit courtesy of the basement wine cellar, which has room for 2,500 bottles.
The SoHo property at 514 Broome is listed with CityRealty. It last sold in 2015 for $6.9m before appearing on the rental market for $22,500 per month.
