You wish: The Penthouse, One Hundred Barclay Tribeca


If the 40,000 sq ft US$250 mil Bel Air home we posted a few weeks back was a bit over the top for you, perhaps you'd prefer an art deco Tribeca penthouse with views of the Hudson River, NYC skyline and the Statue of Liberty...and it'll only set you back US$59 million. 

Built between 1923 and 1927, One Hundred Barclay is the world's first art deco building. Recently restored, the building is home to a 14,500 sq ft penthouse, one of the largest private residences in New York. 

Over two floors, the home features 7 bedrooms, 9.5 bathrooms, a professional kitchen, 1000+ sq ft of entertainment space, a dining area, after-dinner lounge, wet bar, wine room and 6,000 sq ft of customisable space.

But the hero of this home is the living room. At almost 100 ft long and 30 ft wide, is possibly the biggest living room in New York City and contains the longest continuous wall in a private home. Soaring 22 ft ceilings add to the sense of vastness, likening the space to a museum or gallery.

The US$59 million penthouse spans almost 15,000 sq ft over the 32nd and 33rd floor of Tribeca's iconic One Hundred Barclay

The living room's gallery wall can hang a large scale piece of around 65 ft wide by 20ish ft high.

The arched, iron windows soar to 21 ft...

...and frame the New York skyline including a views of Lady Liberty and the Empire State Building.

The staircase in the living area leads to 6,000 sq ft space on the 33rd floor, which has been left largely untouched for prospective buyers to customise.

The kitchen is a home cook's dream, featuring Calacatta Gold marble bench tops, custom oak cabinetry, dual refrigerators and freezers, dual 30” convection ovens, 60” cooking range with eight burners and griddle, 36” induction cooktop, and an accessory suite including steamer, fryer, and teppanyaki, plus dual dishwashers.

The wine room stores up to 630 bottles and connects the living and dining spaces.
