Located in the heart of Tribeca is 52 Lispenard, a boutique condo building, with only two remaining units out of the total of six. Offering three-to-five bedrooms, this 19th century landmarked building is two buildings integrated into a single address.
LET THERE BE LIGHT
The first thing you will notice upon entering the residences is the vast amount of light casting upon the open layout of the kitchen, living, and dining room. There are 51 feet of frontage because these condos are two buildings infused into one. The 5th-floor condo has skylights on the front façade, and the 2nd-floor condo has skylights on the back façade. The 2nd-floor condo has ultra-high 20 feet ceilings throughout (even in the bathrooms). This all combines to create a wow factor with the amount of light in these residences. The designers advanced this concept of light by installing LED lighting by Kreon throughout the residence. There is even LED lighting on the custom shelves in the master bedrooms.
You can tell the designers thought out the plan with the beautiful layouts and attention to detail. Museum quality finishes, en suite bathrooms, and the powder room is actually a full bathroom. All with smart wired NEST technology and each unit has its heating and hot water mechanicals. The kitchens and bathrooms are designed by Minimal USA. The kitchen is minimal elegance; matching Bianco Borealis marble island and backsplash with all Gaggenau appliances except for the hidden Miele coffee station and U-Line wine cooler. The Falmec-integrated vented hood is also an impressive design detail. It is remote controlled and vented to the outside. The kitchen sink is custom, and the white integrated cabinetry gives an open feel in particular against the amount of light entering the space.
Bathrooms also encompass a minimal elegance; the Waved Corian sink defines this minimal design feel. The deep soaking tub and shower room are encased in extra-large Calacatta marble slab, and the industrial fixtures of the faucets and shower head provide a nice compliment. They have steam showers in the master baths by Thermasol. The secondary baths use Salvatori Row Silk Georgetta limestone wall tiles. They have a great texture and a warm hue. The Robern medicine cabinets top it all off. With a defogger feature and electrical outlets inside the cabinets it matches the minimalist design and also shows the quality of this project.
This property is an excellent boutique condo. The size and layouts of the two units left are fantastic. The attention to detail, the mechanicals, and the quality appliances and craftsmanship make this development a testament to the coveted area that Tribeca is.
