23 Aug 60 Collister St In Marblehous Listed By Fredrik Eklund
My favorite Million Dollar Listings star Fredrik Eklund is one of the top real estate agents in the world which means his listings are blog worthy every time. While he doesn’t need the help getting the word out about this $17.5 million dollar home in Tribeca, I thought I’d return the favor for all those hours of viewing pleasure. This residence is in what I think is safe to call the most luxurious/finest/sexiest/loudest/gorgeous property in all of Manhattan. The features are extensive, the location is exclusive and you’d get to meet the man himself if you’re a buyer.
Where to begin with the details? I wonder if Fredrik could list all of them off the top of his head while doing a showing..so if you’re reading this Mr Eklund, send us a shout on Twitter with a yes or no answer! This property should have its own app for buyers during a walk around and open houses I tell ya!
First up we’ll show you a video tour taken by the good people at New York Magazine although they really should have done it in HD, so I apologize as it’s the only video of 60 Collister St.
So let’s start with why the Marblehous has its unique name although I imagine you can already guess. This place is adorned with imported Carrara, Striato Olimpico, Grey Bardiglio, and Crema Valencia marbles from slabs hand selected by Stuart Parr himself. The property itself is over 9000 square feet which means you’re in for a whole lotta marble! Living here, despite being in the heart of NYC, comes with impeccable privacy and security and of course a full time doorman.
60 Colliste features grade A rift and quarter sawn, wide plank White Oak floors which are laid in a Chevron pattern which looks great in this home. This units plaster crown moldings are custom designed you can see the fine work in the picture just below here. This masterfully composed palette in combination with the soaring ceilings and massive wood framed windows creates a dramatic backdrop for any style of décor or artwork.
I’m a foodie and I love to cook so anyone into it as much as I will fall instantly in love with the Chef’s kitchen. It features heirloom furniture quality cabinetry designed with antique glass and nickel plated hardware. For cooking and grilling you get the top of the line 48″ Viking range with 6 burners! For keeping your food and beer cold this kitchen comes packing two Sub Zero refrigerators, and of course a Sub-Zero wine cooler for easy access at meal time. The best part? The kitchen has over 50 feet of uninterrupted counter space!
My favorite part of this place is the lounge area and pool room which is so perfect looking I’d be afraid to use it. The pool area is completely clad in Carrara marble slab including the floors, walls and even the ceilings. There is a nearby Quarry Bath which is accessed via a 9′ tall marble pivot door and features a cantilevered Carrara marble sink and 8′ Grey Bardiglio marble Japanese soaking tub. If that wasn’t enough, you’re a short hop and a skip away from the Western Red Cedar Finlandia Sauna!
I’ll end the post with the what is perhaps the most “ballin” bathroom we’ve ever seen and or blogged about here on Luxury Branded. The marble is draped across the floors, walls and counter tops which might make it the most expensive bathroom NYC has ever seen.
