88 Bleecker Streets Unit 5J is the perfect combination of style and charm. Situated perfectly at the heart of NoHo, this coveted unit offers bright sunshine that reflects warmly off the various types of beautiful wood finishes and pristine walls throughout the home.
The theme of lofty light walls anchored by a rich hardwood floor can be found most prominently in the living room and bedroom. The bedrooms large double windows boast wonderful views of the vibrant surrounding area. It is larger than many in New York, especially in such a tightly packed neighborhood as this one, and even allows room for additional furniture like a loveseat or rocking chair. The room comes complete with an elegant and trendy ceiling fan, a rare find in one of New Yorks oldest neighborhoods that is sure to keep the owner cool in the dog days of summer.
The living room is quite spacious and also features double windows with a similar view. These large frames welcome radiant beams that are sure to make the home feel warm and cheery at all times. The position of the floorboards runs the eye naturally to the open window, and makes the room feel even larger. Due to its large open shape, the owner can truly get creative with various arrangements of the space, be that for hosting parties, exercising (with room enough for home equipment), or simply unwinding with loved ones on a relaxing evening.
The kitchen is easily the crown jewel of Unit 5J, and makes quite an impression upon those who enter through the front door. Its cherry cabinetry oozes charm and hearkens back to New Yorks bygone days. The cupboards offer highly unique shapes and sizes to accommodate the tenants every need, be that decorative or practical, and are complimented nicely by gorgeous decorative wall tiles and stainless-steel appliances, including the most sought-after fixture in New York: A dishwasher! Perhaps what makes this crown jewel glitter most are its whimsical curving shapes, found consistently from floor to ceiling. While subtle, these curves make a smooth and seamless transition into the rest of the home. The kitchen is quite literally topped off with colorful and elegant light fixtures, which reflect handsomely down onto the polished sandstone peninsula bar below. The space is perfect for entertaining guests while preparing fantastic meals.
The home would not be complete without its equally whimsical restroom, in which a similar sand tile theme is found. The tiles are met with sleek and hard lines of metal and glass that put an elegant finishing touch on the space. The wide mirror and floating sink are sure to please, and offer a chic and clean balance to the zealous kitchen across the way. We find the combination and simple layout of these four rooms offer a calming oasis at the intersection of a vivacious cluster of neighborhoods.
