Not every Soho apartment is a former warehouse loft–and here’s proof. This one-bedroom unit takes up the parlor floor of the 20-foot-wide 1900s townhouse located at 200 6th Avenue, one block south of Houston Street. Stretching over 1,300 square feet, the interior is loaded with drool-worthy prewar details that include herringbone hardwood floors, two working fireplaces, crown molding, antique chandeliers and wall-mounted candelabras. For good measure, there’s a nice display of exposed brick in the bedroom–a typical feature of the traditional Soho loft. The condo is up for rent for either six months or a year, asking $6,500 per month.
Some other lovely prewar perks on display are the 12-foot ceilings and eight large windows. The living and dining area has two west-facing windows, which allow for sunlight throughout the day. And in the winter, the grand fireplace can be put to good use.
The galley kitchen off the living room has its own window and stainless steel appliances that include a vented cooktop and oven. The olive green cabinets and built in breakfast bar, of course, are modern additions.
The brick-lined bedroom overlooks a garden down below. It boasts not one, but two large walk-in closets.
200 6th Avenue has been broken up into five condo units. It’s right around the corner from the Avenue but separated by Father Fagan Park, which creates a quiet and private environment for residents. The Soho location means it’s close to tons of restaurants, bars, boutiques and the famous Dominique Ansel Bakery, too.
