54 Bond Street

The new Cire Trudon boutique is located in one of the most interesting buildings in New York at 54 Bond Street.  The landmark was designed by architect Henry Engelbert in 1874 and housed the Bouwerie Lane Theatre as well as Lauren Hutton, Jane Russell, Brice Marden, Jake Lamotta, and Helen Hayes among others.  It is now owned by Adam Gordon who developed into luxury apartments.  The top three floors make up the penthouse triplex that can be yours for about $15 million.  In the scheme of crazy New York real estate, thar actually seems quite reasonable.  The kitchens are a bit modern for my taste but I love how they styled the living room.  The amazing windows and roof aren’t too bad either.  The neighborhood used to be very gritty but has become very gentrified over the years.  CBGB is now a John Varvatos store if that is any indication of the change.  If you lived here, you could pop over to John Derian to shop or Peels, the new cafe by the owners of Freemans.  Oh, that’s close by too as are all the shops in Soho.  Kind of makes me wish I could buy it!

    this is dream real estate to a single girl in a ues studio! I actually really like what they’ve done with the kitchens (at least in the photos.) I dont normally lean towards modern either but the way they’ve styled it with plants and baskets make it seem more liveable.

    I actually saw this on Selling New York a few months ago. It’s high style and not stuffy. That outdoor space in NY city, worth every penny of 15 mill.
    Thanks for the extra photos

    I love the garden and outside dining table. I’ve never seen such a sleek grill before! Interesting!

    I can’t find anything that I don’t like there.

    WE all love so much beautiful things, but today I am really trying to analyze all of this… should we always be aiming the most beautiful outfit, the most beautiful house, the better view, the fastest car?

    Today I think it’s ok to have it all, but with more heart, more compassion.
