A downtown Manhattan apartment owned by indie-rock musician Albert Hammond Jr., has come available for rent at $6,750 per month. The Strokes guitarist, son of “It Never Rains in California” singer-songwriter Albert Hammond, purchased the third-floor condo in mid-2012 for $1.25 million and online resources indicate he’s made it available for rent several times since early 2015 at a variety of prices as high as $8,000 per month. The listing is held with Taylor Travaglione of Compass.
Smack in the trendy, designer boutique-filled crossroads of the Soho, Nolita and Lower East Side neighborhoods, on the third floor of a handsome, six-story red brick building serviced by a full time doorman, the just over 1,000 square foot studio-style loft has an open bedroom alcove with built-in dresser and walk-in closet. There are two full bathrooms, one just inside the front door, the other off the bedroom and both with radiant heated floors.
The main living space features a high, heavy-beamed ceiling, an exposed brick wall and a chunky support beam, while the open-concept, industrial-inspired kitchen, outfitted with premium grade appliances and employs stainless steel restaurant kitchen tables as countertops, is roomy enough to accommodate a picnic-style table for six. A second walk-in closet beside the kitchen includes a stacked washer and dryer, there’s a built-in sound system and the air-conditioning is new and top-of-the-line
