Don’t Hate It Because It’s Beautiful

When an earlier floor plan for 2 N Moore Street was published on Curbed last year, something struck a nerve. “You’re [sic] life must really suck,” one reader told another. “Nobody cares what an [sic] poor and unwashed member of society thinks about a luxury house,” another comment said.

Tribeca mansions with 12,500 square feet, seven levels, five bedrooms, three fireplaces, and one high-speed elevator have that effect. And at $35 million, this was the priciest listing ever in the neighborhood. But the mansion, owned by the former chairman and CEO of New York Mortgage Trust, who built his place by combining a former bar with a new six-story house, has a freshly cut $29 million price tag, and, more importantly, an improved floor plan.

Now readers can join hands and peacefully marvel at the three-car garage, the gas meter room, the courtyard’s vented BBQ grill, the library’s gas fireplace, the master bedroom suite’s loggia and the 50-foot-long indoor pool. - Max Abelson

The basement's two storage rooms sound good, though on another floor plan they're labeled as crawl spaces, so it's not clear how plush they are. On the plus side, there's also an elevator control room, a boiler room, a gas meter room, a 21-foot-long media room and a 23-foot-long mechanical room.
The master suite has a fitted dressing room (plus three closets), a steam shower, a windowed tub, a fireplace in the bedroom, a vestibule and, of course, a "loggia."
The 17-foot-wide gym has a skylight and a powder room--and a 50-foot-long heated lap pool. "We're really humble, believe it or not," the owner has said.

Gas fireplaces are vaguely uncool, although this one's in a 23-foot-long library that opens onto a 30-foot-long decked terrace, so it's all right.
It's slightly odd that this is smaller than the first-floor maid's room, and it's even odder that all of the floor's bedrooms are smaller than the first-floor's guest room (though they each have their own tubs, which makes up for things).

According to Corcoran's listing, the house's landscaped outdoor space has "an irrigation system and mist outdoor cooling system." Very classy!

The living room's wood-burning fireplace turns into the courtyard's vented BBQ grill. Classy!
A two-car garage is a bore; a two-car garage with a car lift is awe-inspiring.
The staff apartment has its own entrance and a little pantry. One can't have the help mingling around in the front! That would never do.
