Legal newshound and NBC A.M. figurehead Savannah Guthrie listed her lower Manhattan residence for sale on the open market this winter. The condo unit, one of a baker’s dozen in a 2016-built boutique building in the gilded neighborhood of Tribeca, appeared with an asking price of $7.1 million.
The townhouse-sized building features an exterior in stacked bluestone, which gives it a suggestion of both the prehistoric and the contemporary; upper-level massing and balcony design drives home the conceit. The structure should tickle the curiosity of the architectural design hounds unfamiliar with it just as readily as it conjures the mycological memories of the experienced.
The unit is a full-floor loft with 11-foot ceilings throughout. It contains four bedrooms and four full or partial baths across 3,735 sq. ft. of interiors. The great room offers a nearly fifty-foot array of glass picture windows, and is divided from the unit’s dining room by a wall of multi-pane glass panels and sliding doors, a design element that brings a sophisticated breeziness to the living style.
The size of the unit allows for a generously proportioned master suite. The room series is a linear progression, with the bedroom transitioning to a dressing room with multiple closets, a bath, and finally a home office.
