Presenting the ultimate in Penthouse living atop The Schumacher at 36 Bleecker: 4,480 INTERIOR and 1,388 EXTERIOR SQUARE FEET, with two stories of extraordinary living tucked discreetly behind the crowning pediment. The Schumacher was constructed in 1885 to house the Schumacher and Ettlinger lithographic printing business. Designed by Edward E. Raht, the 6-story structure is in the Romanesque Revival style and included flourishes such as corbelled brick layering, ornamental overhangs, radiating lintels, arched windows, as well as parapets and turrets. The building and 20 homes have been completely re-imagined by Morris Adjmi.
This stunning home offers four bedrooms (possible 5), a library with fireplace, and five bathrooms including a windowed five-fixture master retreat. The gorgeous entertaining floor includes two wraparound terraces with a gas grill, an iconic glass-enclosed Living Room, a dramatic 67 foot long sun filled gallery, marble lined office/library with fireplace. The Western wing encompasses a massive 19'6 x 28'4 Great Room. Open to the Great Room, a true chef's kitchen is exquisitely appointed with hand-selected artisanal surfaces that include book-matched Calacatta slab stone countertops and backsplash, and a stunning Calacatta slab stone waterfall island breakfast bar, and outfitted with top appliances and a full pantry. A separate service entrance is discretely located adjacent to the pantry for seamless living and entertaining.
A sculptural staircase leads to the lower level with the exceptional Master Suite, comprising a corner master bedroom lined with oversized north and east-facing windows, a large walk-in closet, and an enormous spa-like windowed master bath featuring Calacatta stone-tiled walls, a double vanity, free-standing soaking tub, steam shower suite, and private water closet. There are 3 additional bedrooms all with en suite baths. A central gallery with separate entrance, two large walk-in closets, a Utility Closet with side-by-side washer and dryer complete this level.>
