True New York flexible "artist's loft" where decades of talent in the arts, photography, music, design, and healing arts have thrived in this original 19th century sewing factory in the heart of NoMad.
This floor-through live/work loft offers the authentic downtown experience that's almost impossible to find: elevator entry directly into the loft; Northern and Southern exposures; 11.5 foot soaring ceilings; original refinished maple hardwood floors throughout; original replastered walls and ceiling throughout; and oversized commercial windows showing sweeping views of the Empire State Building. In addition, this loft offers the chance to create a multiple space (for live/work) with the potential for up to two full bedrooms and an additional bathroom.
Upon entry, one is captivated by the tremendous original windows, two of which pivot, overlooking iconic NoMad architecture and a panoramic view of midtown and the Empire State Building. The dramatic views are juxtaposed by the serenity of the space created by natural and reflective light and beautiful proportions of the space. The large front part of the loft apartment offers an entry foyer to welcome guests; a sizeable living area perfect for entertaining and appreciating the views; a dining and work flex space; and a floor to ceiling closet with enormous storage. As one continues toward the back there is an original Upstate country home French door leading to the kitchen, recently updated bathroom (and potential for a second half or full bath with W/D), the raised alcove for work or sleeping, and a versatile lounge/living area which serves as an additional two possible bedrooms, one with ensuite bath.
The kitchen has modern grey lacquer-finish cabinetry and an industrial stainless steel eat-in island. The bathroom was fully renovated with a discerning eye, including a clawfoot tub characteristic of this era. There is an extended closet with an abundance of clothing space and overhead storage on both sides. The elevated alcove maximizes the space of the unit and is located up a few steps, with storage below. Finally, the back room offers the opportunity for two full bedrooms, one with ensuite bath, or a flexible second lounge/entertaining area. Rounding out this one-of-a-kind living quarters is a wall of windows highlighting more quintessential NoMad views, Southern exposure, and an abundance of light.
20 West 27th Street is self-managed and well-maintained with recent capital improvements, including a new elevator and direct roof access. The roof offers dramatic, open views of the Empire State Building and NoMad. The building is pet friendly and has limited storage space in the basement.
