With penthouse options dwindling, it was a breath of fresh air to see this 2-story showplace at Metropolis come on the market. I don’t know if you have been shopping around for condos (or single-family homes for that matter), but the really great homes are getting harder and harder to find.
This amazing condominium has been achieved by combining two smaller penthouse units into a single space. The result? Over 3,600 square feet of interior space in the middle of Midtown at Metropolis. This isn’t your run-of-the-mill combined condo. This was a seamless blend of two spaces. One where you can’t tell what was existing and what was added. I’ve been in a good number of combo units and many leave me wondering “why did they do that?” This wasn’t the case here.
Interior designer Lee Bryan was hired to turn the adjoining two units into one stunning, contemporary space. He integrated the electronics into one home automation system and then turned his thoughts on furnishings and artwork. He did an amazing job. (Lee also does more traditional designs as well.)
You might be saying Metropolis? Yes. Although many of the units in the building are on the smaller side, there are units in the building that have unique features, like large terraces or two-story spaces. This unit shows you what you can do with some imagination, thoughtfulness, a nice budget and how to do it right. Lets get the lay of the land.
Finding your way around: Approximately 3,613 square feet of interior space. 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths. Pictured below is the main level, then the upper level. I’ve color coded the plan to make it easier to see the rooms. For example, a red color denoted a bedroom.
Below: Standing in the lower level looking up to the den. The curved granite staircase is industrial looking and has a glass side rails going up to the top floor. Huge, two-story windows let the sun shine in from all angles.
Below: Another shot of this beautiful space. The motorized Lutron® shades can be programmed to automatically lower and rise depending on the temperature outside. The Italian hardwood floors are stained a rich dark color for maximum effect. Make sure you check out the cool lighting hanging from the ceiling.
Below: The kitchen is quite large by condo standards – white sleek Bulthaup® cabinetry, SubZero® fridge, Gaggenau® oven, Miele® oven & built-in coffeemaker. There is even a butler pantry with wine coolers, another refrigerator, and access to the outside hall (think catered events).
Below: Tremendous views are found throughout the entire condo. The owners use this area for a dining room, but the living room could easily accommodate a table. Because of the large windows, the space is always flooded with light.
Below: This room contains the electronics for the Crestron® Home Automation system. Lights, A/V, motorized Lutron® shades, security, and temperature can all be controlled through LCD panels found throughout the penthouse (or from portable ones).
Below: The oversized Master Suite features a private balcony, walk-in closet and luxurious Master Bath (with Kohler® Sok Chromatherapy tub, Toto toilet hidden away in the water closet, Dornbracht® fixtures, steam shower and separate vanities).
Below: Just off the master bedroom is a space for either an office (as shown here) or another bedroom.
Below: This is the second floor lounge. Notice the curved glass wall which overlooks the living room. It’s a very cool space to hang out.
