One glimpse at the interiors of this sprawling Manhattan duplex, and it’s clear that designer extraordinaire Ken Fulk had something to do with it. Now on the market for just under $18 million, the lavish Soho apartment encompasses 6,000 square feet and is brimming with glossy finishes, bold pops of colour, and eye-catching patterns that recall Ken Fulk’s work at high-end restaurants such as Sadelle’s, Carbone, and Legacy Records.
Perched in a prewar Beaux-Arts building at 151 Wooster Street, the five-bedroom dwelling retains historic elements including barrel-vaulted brick ceilings but also comes with sleek design choices such as checker-board flooring, lacquered turquoise walls, and opulent lighting fixtures.
Glamorous bathrooms and bedrooms are sheathed in kicky wallpaper and feature unexpected colours—ruby-grapefruit tile, for instance—while the kitchen’s baby-blue cabinetry perfectly complements a velvety green banquette. Ken Fulk himself describes the five-bedroom pad as “part city townhouse and part country manor house.”
Anchoring the unit is an ultra-glamorous staircase with brass balusters that links the lower level—with three bedrooms and the eat-in kitchen—to the more urbane upper level, which contains formal living and dining areas, including a marble-swathed buffet. All in all, the place is one of Ken Fulk’s most spectacular creations.
