The Crown Jewel of TriBeCa, a/k/a 110 Hudson Street is a Beaux Arts style masterpiece. This gloriously significant structure was originally built for the Bordon Milk Company in 1904. The building boasts stone balustrade and imposing portico. It was designed by George Howard Chamberlain. The building was converted to a condominium in 1988. According to the designation report of the TriBeCa Historic District The base, sheathed in deeply coursed granite, projects at the end bays; it displays round-arched first-story openings with cast-iron bulkheads and grilles beneath wood-frame show windows. An entablature with carved rosettes surmounts the base. The midsection of the facade contains projecting white brick end bays which frame red brick central bays at stories three through seven and oriels flanked by an Ionic colonnade at stories eight and nine. At the crown, the materials and bay divisions of the midsection are repeated, while each of the tripartite window bays has been altered into a single opening. A pressed-metal cornice terminates the facade. The overall design of the wider Franklin Street facade is identical, save for the absence of the portico and the substitution of four segmentally-arched openings at the first story, the pairing of windows in the central bays at stories two through seven and the survival of three of the tripartite window openings at the top story, the sidewalks in front of the building are paved with blue-stone with granite curbs.
This is the loft dweller’s dream. Ceiling heights throughout are 12.3 feet. As you enter the palatial living room you are immediately struck by the grand oak framed windows [7 feet tall by 4 feet wide] that draw in dramatic southern light and views of the Freedom Tower. The entire 3,628 square feet is awash in light.
European craftsmanship abounds in the details, herringbone inlay floors, a carved oak wainscoted living room, a dining area large enough to have at least 20 of your closest friends over for a sit down meal. A thoroughly over-sized wood burning fireplace encased in an imported Italian masterworks hand carved mantle create the feeling of relaxing by the fire in your Castle in the sky.
This home has 4 full size bedrooms with en-suite baths and a powder room for guests. The kitchen is paneled in beautiful knotty pine planks. To say that this windowed kitchen is over-sized is the ultimate understatement. There is a large dining table for 6 and a windowed banquet for another seating for 6.
This boutique condo home is convenient to all that central Tribeca has to offer, night life, dining, schools, and close to subways. Come and take a tour of this unique and welcoming home.
