We love a home that has the power to surprise, and this loft defies expectations in both location and style. Situated in the quiet enclave of Turtle Bay in Midtown East, where the list of neighbors includes the United Nations, this condop apartment feels like something you’d find in TriBeCa or SoHo, the traditional loft neighborhoods. Soaring 12-foot ceilings give the space great proportions, and in addition to the master bedroom, there’s a private sleeping loft reached by a custom-designed, cantilevered steel staircase. Downtown style, but in a location with East River and Chrysler Building views from the windows and private terrace? And for under $1 million? That’s where the TriBeCa and SoHo similarities end.
