An audacious masterpiece, finished to a quality unlike anything on the market, Residence 2 at 47 Mercer Street is a once-in-a-generation, sumptuous home, whose qualities may only be distilled into one word: perfection. Spanning 4000 square feet with almost 50 feet of frontage over prime Mercer Street, Residence 2 was reimagined by Maurizio Bianchi Mattioli of Studio MBM; its completion was recently featured in Architectural Digest. With two luxe bedroom suites, a third smaller bedroom, and a media room/library, this is a grand and versatile home. Enormous eastern and western exposures let in incredible light, and 13-foot ceilings, punctuated by original Corinthian-style columns, allow it to shine throughout the home. The result is exquisitely SoHo: a historic loft, updated to the pinnacle of design, in a private cast iron building. Enter through the private keyed elevator into the great room. The entire home was designed to display an incredible art and furniture collection. The centerpiece of this 48-foot-wide loft is an enormous and versatile space of over 1,500 square feet, with room for multiple sitting configurations, countless art pieces of every size, dining for 14, and entertaining for dozens. The home has 12 inch-wide french white oak floors, each plank 9- to 15-feet long. The columns and the coffered ceiling provide texture and drama. A double-wide Carrera marble gas fireplace creates intimacy, while the monumental windows breathe life into the space. A media room/library, adjacent to the great room, includes charcoal lacquered built-in bookshelves on two sides, making a cozy, more private space for relaxing or reading. Both the media room and the great room have surround-sound speakers by Crestron, providing a concert-quality listening experience; in the media room, it is an immersive surround sound. At Residence 2, large spaces are left bright and open, while smaller areas are finished with darker colors, creating pockets of warmth among the sprawling home. Designed by Boffi, the kitchen is right off the great room; every level of finish and appliance is the highest quality. Furnished with appliances from Wolf and Subzero, including a double-wide wine fridge and an ice maker, the kitchen includes black cosmic granite throughout, lighted floating shelves, an eat-in island and prep area, and oversized refrigerator and freezer. The bedroom suites occupy the west wing of the loft. The principal suite was built as a quiet sanctuary. The walls are finished with Venetian plaster, forest green carpet lines the floors, and the Roman shades are made of a linen and horse hair weave. The entire bedroom suite, including the dressing room and the bathroom, also features hidden surround-sound speakers by Crestron built into the ceiling. The dressing room is an enclave in and of itself, matching the bedroom in size and offering black stained teak built-ins and a center island, along with custom Studio MBM lighting. The principal bathroom is reminiscent of a hotel spa. It’s lined by gray quartzite with brass accents, and has a Brutalist design without sacrificing warmth. Light from the window complements the gray stone, which adds texture to the vanity and is customized to hide bathroom paraphernalia. Other luxe customizations include heated floors, integrated lighting, a steam shower, and an automated Toto toilet. The second bedroom suite features a large closet and an en-suite bathroom. The third bedroom is a flexible and functional space, serving either as a walk-in closet for the second bedroom, a nursery, an office, or a small art studio. Residence 2 is wired throughout with a state-of-the-art Crestron smart home system controlling the surround-sound speakers, shades, HVAC, and lighting. The home includes a laundry room with washer/dryer, a powder room for guests, and a customized storage system by Boffi in the foyer.
