This authentic, approx 1,984 sq ft pre-war co-op loft offers many unique features such as 6 ft windows framed in rich mahogany, 10ft+ ceilings, exposed brick walls, and a very flexible layout. Designed as a 1 bedroom/2 bath home with separate den and substantial open entertaining space, one can easily create a proper 2 bedroom and still maintain a large living/dining area.
Upon entering the spacious foyer, with 2 oversized closets and a renovated hall bath, one is immediately drawn to the loft's vast expanse. The 6 beautiful, oversized, west-facing windows grace the open living and dining space with light and provide captivating views of the exquisite and architecturally significant Potter building. The semi-open eat-in kitchen, with 2 large windows, was cleverly designed with a moveable partition one can close to keep the kitchen out of sight. The kitchen has 11' ceilings, tall maple cabinets, subzero refrigerator and Bosch dishwasher. A utility pantry houses the washer/dryer and provides substantial overhead storage.
At the far end of this sprawling loft is the generously sized principal bedroom with 2 tall east-facing windows, a deep double closet, and attractive Japanese style pivoting doors which separate the bedroom from the spacious den. The den has sliding solid pocket doors providing privacy to accommodate a second sleeping space. Off the generously sized dining area is a marble topped dry bar with opaque glass cabinetry and ample glassware storage. Tucked behind this area is a built-in office space with extensive overhead shelving and storage and the second bath.
