House of the Day: SoHo Penthouse Beckons Boho 1 Percent


Once the stomping grounds of beatniks, now an enclave of trendy boutiques, SoHo remains one of New York's most vibrant districts. But a lot of this vibrance springs from SoHo's avant-garde feel -- not the sort of vibe your average 1 percenter is too crazy about.

Which means the banker (we're talking $13.75 million here) who buys this penthouse, which nestles into SoHo's beating heart, is not your run-of-the-mill straitlaced Wall Streeter. Perhaps a self-proclaimed "sell-out," he likely cultivates his inner bohemian on his off hours.

Sprawling almost 5,000 square feet, the apartment boasts four bedrooms, five bathrooms with cast-iron tubs, a living/dining room with high ceilings, and oak floors. To host those late-night after-bar-after-party-after-parties, the abode also has a great room on the second floor with a wood-burning fireplace and enormous, 2,200-square-foot terrace looking out at the Empire State Building.

Frances Katzen, Melanie Lazenby and Dina Lewis of Prudential Douglas Elliman Real Estate have the listing.
