During the 1800s, 414 Washington Street was the headquarters of the Pearline Soap Factory. The building is located in the once industrial Tribeca area. These days, many of the old factories and industrial buildings have been converted into condominiums, the Pearline Soap Factory included. The building now houses seven spacious and exclusive apartments that feature stunning water views.
The seven apartments consist of one duplex unit on the first floor, which covers approximately 2,040 square feet and contains both the ground floor and a spacious lower level. The second floor is the only four-bedroom unit; it is a floor-through residence and offers approximately 3,000 square feet of space. The remaining apartments on the upper floors each have three bedrooms and also cover approximately 3,000 square feet. The penthouse unit boasts a floor-through plan as well as a 950-foot private rooftop terrace.
The Pearline Soap Factory loft apartments are accessed by private keyed elevators, which let out directly into the apartments. Most living areas have four exposures and views of Washington or Laight Street. There are fourteen floor-to-ceiling arched windows, and each unit comes equipped with a Lutron System to control the window shades and lighting. The homes are also equipped with Sonos stereo systems. Ceilings are ten feet tall, many are barrel vaulted, and all interior doors are eight feet high. Brazilian teakwood floors are found throughout the apartments, in all rooms except the bathrooms. Bathrooms are windowed and fitted with top-of-the-line finishes and fixtures. The master bathrooms have a glass-topped, double-sink maple vanity, rain and body shower heads, glass-tiled shower floors, travertine-tiled walls and heated travertine-tiled flooring. Master baths also contain a relaxing, six-foot double-size soaking tub and fixtures from Toto and Kohler. The remaining bathrooms are also finished with travertine tile floors and walls with maple or zebra wood cabinetry and granite counter tops. Magnificent kitchens are outfitted with state-of-the-art appliances by Wolf, Sub-Zero and Miele, as well as platinum hoods. Kitchens are finished with walnut cabinets and islands, stainless-steel countertops, floor-to-ceiling window, and ash wood-coffered ceilings. Miele washer-dryer systems are included in the units as an additional convenience.
Pearline Soap Factory employs a part-time doorman in addition to the virtual doorman system. The building also includes a common courtyard space and a possible common rooftop area.
The development is located in Tribeca, a neighborhood that has become very trendy and features some of the most innovative art exhibitions, unique dining spots, such as Nobu and Chanterelle, and many shopping spots, such as Century 21, J&R Music World, Whole Foods and Barnes and Noble. It is in close proximity to Soho and Chinatown. There is plenty of public transportation within walking distance, and there are many parking garages in the vicinity. The nearby Hudson River Park offers many amenities, including green ways for biking, jogging, skating and walking. The park also offers miniature golf, tennis courts, a skate park and boating.
