High-end interior designer Carolyn Pressly has put her own Tribeca apartment on the market for $8.5 million - and has placed it with Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing New York stars Kirsten Jordan and Tyler Whitman.
This sprawling four-bed, four-bath condominium was recently meticulously reimagined with Carolyn’s bold use of colour and eclectic style, which is immediately present in the form of an exquisite hand-painted entrance.

The kitchen, located just past mirrored French pivot doors, boasts a bespoke black range surrounded by custom-made oak cabinetry with black inlay with hand crafted glass upper cabinets by the Bendheim Glass Foundry and an oversized island.
Form meets function, with restaurant-grade Dacor professional wine preservation system, offering the perfect pour of one of four wines at touch of the button, a Viking range and Sub-Zero fridge and freezer.
The stylish and large living room is over 40ft by 20ft, with soaring ceilings just under 12ft creating the perfect space for recreation or entertaining guests, and the room is flooded with natural light thanks to the lofty height.
