Located in the prime TriBeca West Historic District on a quiet cobblestone street, this expansive, bright and sophisticated corner loft is the perfect blend of original 1880's industrial architecture and 21st Century living. The spacious 2,700 square foot home has barrel vaulted ceilings, original terracotta columns and exposed brick walls throughout; 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths. Originally built in 1886, the building was sold to the Bazzini family in the 1940's where they eventually operated a beloved fruit and nut retail emporium. The building was renovated and converted to residential condominiums in 1999.
From the semi-private elevator landing one enters a dramatic corner great room with 10 tall original chestnut framed windows and exposed brick allowing for open southern and western treetop views, and beautiful natural light throughout the day. The large-scale open lofted room works seamlessly for both cozy living, dining, and easy entertaining.
The generously sized cook's kitchen with enormous island, plentiful cabinets and drawers, extra large deep sink and uber generous storage space features honed Pietra Cardoza stone countertops, SubZero, Miele, Wolf, and Dacor appliances including a vented cooktop exhaust, warming drawer and wine cooler. A planted Juliet balcony off the kitchen is a delightful surprise.
The bedrooms are all accessed via an attractive and dramatic long hallway, perfect for hanging art. The very private and spacious primary bedroom suite is tucked into the quiet north east area of the loft. This warm, luxuriously sized and serene bedroom, accessed by a bookcase lined hallway, features exposed brick walls and two tall east-facing windows that provide excellent light. A huge walk-in closet and spacious en-suite bathroom with a soaking tub, double sinks, and glass enclosed shower complete the primary suite.
There are three more sizeable bedrooms. All face west affording abundant natural light, treetop views and each has exposed brick walls. Currently, the bedroom with en-suite bath is being used as a den and home office. The hall bath features a glass enclosed true walk-in shower with a ceiling mounted rain showerhead and large trough sink.
With low monthly charges, views of Freedom Tower, central air conditioning, 18 windows, a full size vented Whirlpool washer and dryer, plenty of large closets, and a huge basement storage cage that trades with the loft, this home truly has it all.
The Bazzini Building features a video intercom, key-locked elevator, and it is pet friendly. There is a part-time Superintendent and a proactive managing agent. Jay Street is located in School District 2 which includes PS 234 and is surrounded by superb restaurants, multiple transportation choices, the Tribeca Greenmarket in Washington Market Park, Hudson River Park with acres of greenery and athletic paths, Battery Park City, and Piers 25 & 26.
