Originally headquarters for New York City’s police department, the iconic 240 Centre Street, designed by Hoppin & Koen at the turn of the last century is an exceptional architectural landmark.

With a spectacular location on the edge of SoHo, Nolita and Little Italy, this four-story dome penthouse offers the discerning buyer the opportunity to purchase one of the city’s most historically preserved luxury residences, with incredible 360-degree views of the city skyline. Heavily influenced by Parisian and turn-of-the-century architectural styles, this home embodies the perfect balance between elegant living and historic character.

Upon entry, the foyer seamlessly connects the original penthouse residence to the newly-joined adjacent residence that serves as a living space for staff or a private family wing, inclusive of a separate kitchen. Identical double skylights and two large windows, providing fabulous light and great downtown views to the main chef’s kitchen. Adjacent is a formal dining room with sating walls and etched vintage glass doors, the nearby media room and bar area provide ample space to relax. Two guest bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, a family room, laundry, and a second kitchen are also on the first level.

Ascend the beautiful satin black steel rod spiral staircase or utilize the private elevator to get to the second level to the expansive master suite complete with a bedroom plus sitting area, double-vanity bathroom and a graciously sized walk-in closet. Doors were added to the master bedroom for privacy and the landing area is used as an office space.

The third-level, the Dome room, is the pièce de résistance of the residence, with two-levels of endless entertaining opportunities. Massive, arched Palladian windows are complemented by a ceiling height soaring over 25-feet and dramatic panoramic views of city. Two terraces and two garden patios, meticulously landscaped and offering an escape from it all, are accessed directly from the dome living room. The notable feature of this stunning penthouse continues further to the fourth level above the dome living room to the special Clock tower space. The current owner’s renovation extended the dome entertainment space, which originally was only accessed by clock mechanics. The carefully constructed iron spiral staircase into the Clock tower boasts unobstructed views of the original steel beams, exposed brick walls and four gigantic clocks all magically lit with warm lighting, making this penthouse a truly magnificent space to call home.

This residence is a fully-wired smart home, including an electronic security surveillance, central cooling/heating system, radiant-floor heating in all bathrooms and kitchens. Building amenities include a full-time resident manager, concierge, doorman, gym, and a communal garden.

This is a co-exclusive with Modlin Group.
