This sun-flooded top-floor home offers the best of downtown loft living, in a charming and authentic cast-iron Soho building. This original artists loft features a dramatic and massive entertaining space, original cast-iron and wood columns, 3 bedrooms, a library, and 2 baths, as well as multiple skylights bringing beautiful natural light into the loft all day. A perfect marriage of the cool industrial aesthetic of Sohos late 19th century past and modern luxury, this spacious home features sloped ceilings reaching to 11 (and up to 15 inside the skylight opening), central A/C and video-intercom security.
A key-locked glass elevator opens into an inviting windowed entry foyer, with several coat closets. Visitors are immediately impressed by the expansive nearly 40-foot wide entertaining space, with a wall of south facing windows that overlook cobblestoned Wooster Street, and a massive skylight that provides beautiful natural light all day.
With a perfect flow for entertaining on a grand scale, the living room leads to an open chefs kitchen, opposite a large dining area that can easily accommodate seated dinners for 20+. The kitchen features stainless steel appliances, extensive cabinetry with ample storage, and marble counters and backsplash. Two islands provide extra prep and storage space as well as counter-seating.
The master suite includes a large en-suite master bath and a generous walk-in closet. The windowed master bath includes a bidet and a walk-in shower. Just beyond the master suite and entertaining area is a library that doubles as a home office or den.
The skylit, bookcase-lined passage from the living area and den leads to the secondary bedroom wing of the loft. A flush-door cleverly conceals a narrow but huge 24 long storage room that also houses AC mechanicals. Opposite, a doorway leads to a bedroom hall lined in even more storage closets. Off the hall is a large tiled bathroom with a skylight. Two spacious bedrooms (which can easily be converted to 3 secondary bedrooms), and a washer/dryer, complete the guest wing. All of the bedrooms are perfectly situated at the back of the building, ensuring complete quiet. A third full or half bath can also be added to the loft.
With a handsome and classic cast-iron and brick facade, 22 Wooster Street is part of an intimate 13 unit, boutique 5-story elevator cooperative that includes 71 Grand Street. Ideally located on a charming and quiet cobblestone block in the desirable and more tranquil southern part of Soho, between Grand and Canal Streets, the building is near everything that Soho and Tribeca have to offer. Within minutes of the front door are world-class boutiques, excellent restaurants, easy transportation access, and the best amenities that downtown has to offer.
