With open spaces, big windows and high ceilings, the pleasures of loft living may have had their artsy genesis in New York’s Soho neighborhood but it’s come to a more luxurious apotheosis in Tribeca, one of Manhattan’s most expensive and sought-after neighborhoods.
In the heart of the nabe, a 24-unit condo building, built in 1910, features a handsome brick and limestone facade with neo-Renaissance elements throughout. The building once housed dried fruit, machinery and paper businesses; it went condo in 2004.
Within the building, a 2,400-square-foot, high-floor loft-style flat offers sun-drenched interiors, an open floor plan, high-end finishes, and breathtaking views of the city skyline. Perfect for entertaining or just relaxing after a long day, the three-bedroom, three-bathroom loft is priced at just under $5 million with maintenance and common charges that add up to about $6,000 a month. The apartment is listed by Danny Davis, Lisa Balbuena, and Ryan Lee at Corcoran.
The gracious foyer opens to a large dining room, art nook and wet bar, while the sprawling, light and bright living room is a perfect spot to unwind alongside the corner fireplace. There are beautiful built-ins and a sun-dappled urbanscape outside the windows. Flanked by the dining room and living room, the open kitchen is filled with sleek floor-to-ceiling cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and more blue-sky vistas.
The spacious primary suite includes original brick columns and a walk-in closet capable of containing the most devout fashionista’s wardrobe. A large dressing room opens to an en-suite with a large soaking tub/shower and double vanity surrounded by mosaic tile.
A secondary suite enjoys western views, a roomy closet and a private bath, while the third bedroom, which could easily double as a home office, features a built-in desk and shelving, along with two roomy closets and easy access to the guest bathroom. More closets and an in-unit washer-dryer complete the interiors.
Above is the loft’s crowning glory, a nearly 450-square-foot private roof deck with a grill, seating and wide-open views of the surrounding buildings, which include the 57-story residential skyscraper known as Jenga Tower.
The unit’s prime location, stunning views, and exquisite finishes combine for a great Tribeca living experience. This trendy AF neighborhood boasts fantastic shopping, dining and nightlife, including Frenchette, Bubby’s and Locanda Verde. Nearby, Hudson River Park offers practically endless waterfront outdoor space and recreation.
