At 10,000+ sf of combined indoor-outdoor living space, rarely does a loft of this scale hit the market-even in Soho, the birthplace of oversized loft-living. The average loft in Soho is 1,924 SF, and there are only 52 known lofts that surpass 5,000 SF. To further emphasize the rarity of this home, only 10 lofts over 7500 SF have ever been on the market in Soho, and of those, only 2 had private terraces. Neither of those had 4 exposures and views of both the ESB & WTC. In addition to its enormous scale, 54 Thompson offers a unique level of privacy appreciated by those discerning clients looking for maximum discretion in the heart of Soho. Although this address is right in the middle of Soho-the front door is only 100 yards from West Broadway-this block has far less pedestrian traffic than neighboring areas, primarily because there are far fewer retail shops and restaurants than on any of the surrounding blocks. As a direct result of this, the block has a "throwback" appeal more akin to the Soho of yesteryear that attracted so many for so long. The building itself also contributes greatly to the home's highly-sought-after privacy in that it is almost entirely commercial, with only one other residential loft. This means that during evenings and weekends-the times you are most likely to be home or have guests-the building is almost entirely yours. You know you are going to experience something epic from the moment you enter the elevator; at 9x15, the lift is larger than some studio apartments I have sold. This elevator services both floors of this home, as well as the roof. However, not even the elevator can prepare you for the enormity of this home. At nearly 3,000sf, with windows on all sides, the living/dining space alone is larger than the entirety of all but a handful of most generous lofts in the area. Combined with 14' ceiling height throughout, it takes the "open concept living" to dizzying new heights. At 36' x 57', the main ballroom is so voluminous, it makes the 17' x 20' TV nook appear positively cozy by comparison. There's ample space here to host everything from intimate get-togethers to hundred-guest rave parties.If the weather is good, why not bring all those guests up to your roof top terrace? With 2,500sf, direct access from the living room, and wide-open views in all directions, it is quite a place for open-air entertainment. Plenty of privacy is provided by a plethora of mature trees and shrubbery, and since very few neighboring buildings have direct views of the roof, even A-listers can feel comfortable dropping their guard. If you feel particularly magnanimous, why not prepare a feast for your guests on the professional-grade outdoor kitchen? However, if you'd rather hire people to do heavy lifting, it will be made easier with the dumbwaiter connecting the indoor and outdoor kitchens.If, after all that entertaining, you need a break, there is plenty of room for a luxurious respite for both owners and guests. The current layout has 3 master suites, each of them an oasis complete with walk-in closet and spa-like bathroom. However, with some minor adjustments, this home can have 5 bedroom suites with ease. As all but one of the suites are on a different level from the living quarters, and the 6th floor also has direct access to the elevator, these quarters are truly private and easily accessible.This penthouse is the crown jewel of Soho lofts-a rare and precious find for a sophisticated buyer. Like a diamond that compliments a variety of settings, this beautiful property will adapt to a range of needs and will shine brightly enough to impress even the most selective buyer.
