Living Large: Inside An Artist’s Dream Luxury Loft In SoHo

NEW YORK (CBS 2) — CBS 2’s Emily Smith recently got a tour of a multi-million dollar SoHo home. The residence is an artist’s dream as one man turned the open loft into a modern masterpiece filled with works of art.

The home located at 114 Greene St., which was built in 1870, is one of SoHo’s premier cast iron beauties.

An elevator to the 5th floor opens right into 8,500 square feet of luxury living space.

Henry Buhl said he wanted to apartment to be decorated in Renaissance style. He said that almost all of the art he has in the home was purchased in SoHo.

“I wanted to be loyal to the local artists of SoHo,” Buhl said.

The first main room in the loft is an art gallery filled with pictures of artist’s hands.

Landmark windows fill the apartment with natural sunlight. The stone fireplace originated in France in 1490 and the material on the sofas came from England.

    I agree with all the comments – but I have to say, this man is very genuine – he called the reporter on her comment that the place is wonderful by saying she hadn’t seen it, yet – and when she referred to the ‘glass tiles’ on the ceiling he told her they were paper. This is old money and his efforts are sincere – as the commentator said, he holds many fundraisers here and is a great philanthropist.
    So THIS home, I can appreciate – the one with the gauche swimming pool? New Money at it’s worst!

    THIS SEGMENT IS A DISGRACE. WHO WAS THE MORON WHO CAME UP WITH THIS SEGMENT. WITH SO MANY PEOPLE LOSING THEIR JOBS AND BEING EVICTED FROM THEIR HOME, FORECLOSURES UP THE WAZOO, WHAT ARE YOU MEDIA PEOPLE THINKING? STOP THIS SEGMENT IMMEDIATELY OR I SWEAR, I’LL KEEP FOX NEWS ON 24 HOURS A DAY!!!!!!

    WE KNOW HOW THE RICH LIVE. AND THEY AIN’T HOME WATCHING CBS NEWS AT 5 O’CLOCK!!

    To paraphrase: “You too can have a beautiful apartment in the Bloomberg building for only $50k per month. Or, if you so desire, you can purchase it for a mere $20-million!” Pray tell, who is the target audience for this segment? It’s quite obvious to myself and others that it isn’t the average viewer, who’s simply struggling to make ends meet under the dire economic conditions created by the very people who can afford such opulence! And with all the truly important news of world that’s never covered, due to time constraints, how can you rationally justify devoting approximately 10% of your broadcast to such meaningless dribble? This is nothing but pure arrogance on your part! If this is what CBS considers news, it’s time for the viewing public to find a new source!

    Why is this segment even featured? There are so many struggling families that can barely make ends meet and middle income families that will never live this lifestyle. We all know how the rich live. no need to rub it our faces. Give me a break. I will not watch channel 2 news anymore!
    useless and unnecessary segment!

    During these harsh economic times please stop adding insult to injury by the decadent display of wealth. Millions of people do not have jobs but do have TV’s so your misguided use of air time is unacceptable, shameful, disrespectful and just plain wrong. Please stop this callous display of the TV series and replace it with a program thats more intune wtih todays viewers.

  6. Andy says:

    At a time when so many NYers are unemployed and struggling, CBS should make better use of this air time and feature available jobs and employment tips. Gross displays of extravagance do nothing to help anyone – they serve only to demonstrate how shallow and out of touch CBS2 is. Disgusting!

    That is a beautiful apartment….
