UPDATED, 6 p.m., Mar. 7: Residential brokers are wont to label their listings as “unique” or “one-of-a-kind,” even when describing less than distinctive properties. But Lauren Muss of the Corcoran Group, who is marketing a penthouse condominium at 225 East 24th Street, listed yesterday for almost $6 million, has a pretty good case for using either adjective. With seemingly every surface covered in recycled barn wood or Portuguese slate — and more than one mounted set of antlers — the apartment is certainly idiosyncratic.

The soundproof, full-floor duplex, between Second and Third avenues, comes with 4,058 square feet of interior space and 2,400 square feet on a private terrace, the listing says. A Zen stone garden leads to the home’s 40-foot-wide living room, which features 14-foot wood-beamed ceilings. The apartment’s slate walls extend to the master bedroom’s rain shower, while the barn wood is used for sliding doors, giving the place the feel of a rock star’s hunting cabin. (In fact, the master bedroom’s tousled bedding cradles an electric guitar.)

The home also comes complete with a stage located near the master suite. “You can get a whole band and no one will hear you,” Muss told The Real Deal.

And beyond soundproofing, the home offers the owners their privacy. “This is the perfect place to do what you do and you can be anonymous,” Muss said.

The two-bedroom home has four skylights and four fireplaces, one of which is a free-standing gas fireplace in the master suite. Head up a cantilevered staircase to the upper level’s pavilion, which is enclosed in glass underneath zinc ceilings and has an eight-person hot tub, a steam room and two landscaped terraces with automated irrigation.

The seller is a man named David Merin, who, not surprisingly, plays guitar for a hobby. —Zachary Kussin
