Inspired luxury living is what we like to show on MillionDollarVillas and this luxury residence at 242 Broome hits the jackpot so to speak. It has everything going for it as you can see hereunder.

This residence has an artistic feel as ASH NYC, the staging company, has been influenced by the Lower East Side art scene and has mixed 50’s style modern furniture with bold contemporary art from nearby Denny Gallery. The result is a warm interior with a contemporary feel for the young at heart.

Interior architect DXA studio used rich materials like white oak floors, grey-veined marble and warm-toned millwork for the interior and that really looks good in this 1,353 sq.ft. luxury residence, which is situated on the 12th floor of 242 Broome and has 2 bedrooms and 2,5 bath rooms and amazing views of Lower Manhattan.

In the kitchen, Calacatta marble countertops and custom-designed cabinetry have been used together with Gagganau appliances and the result is absolutely stunning.
For the master bath DXA studio used honed marble and a custom-built vanity with wall drawers with a single slab of polished marble gives it a fantastic look. And what to say about the polished chrome Dombracht fixtures they used throughout? Absolutely marvelous!!
