It may seem a tad early to start thinking about New Year’s moves, but perhaps an exception should be made when a 65-foot-wide Tribeca townhouse is involved.
Of course, 2 North Moore Street is more suburban sprawl than downtown loft—a 50-foot indoor heated swimming pool and 3-car garage are among the many extravagant features in the 11,300-square-foot townhouse.
Financier Mark Zittman paid $24 million for it in 2010, and proceeded to put it back on the market (with no major updates) for the sum of $46 million in 2014.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, no one ran to snatch it up, and it has lingered on the market ever since—albeit with a price down to $38 million. And now, for parties interested in a more temporary stay, the six-bedroom, seven-bathroom townhouse is available as a $97,500 a month rental, starting in January 2017.
The home has three fireplaces, an art studio, a screening and billiards room, and a separate staff apartment, per the listing shared by Douglas Elliman brokers Tal and Oren Alexander and Adam Modlin of the Modlin Group.
The outdoor space comes to a total of 1,500 square feet, with decks on the second and third floors and an “outdoor dining atrium,” just in case the chef’s kitchen or formal dining and living rooms aren’t enough. The master suite, with a fireplace and spa bath, takes up the fifth floor, and has access to its own private balcony.
The home is definitely a unique architectural structure—the L-shaped exterior stands out even amid the many modern buildings rising in Tribeca, and indeed, the listing declares the home shall provide the “discerning owner a rare and privileged lifestyle.” Well, no argument there.
Of course, the market for such an interested renter is rather small, we would think. There are only so many out there with nearly $100,000 a month to drop on a townhouse in the city…no matter how imperative an indoor swimming pool may be.
