Welcome to Residence #3 at 40 Great Jones Street, a rare authentic loft on one of NoHos most highly-coveted, landmarked blocks. This finely-designed, approximately 1,800 SF full floor loft is a truly special offering brimming with genuine classicism. The open, airy, yet intimate floorplan is complemented by emblematic details of a bygone era, evidenced in soaring barrel vaulted ceilings, swaths of richly-hued exposed brick walls, and beautiful volume of space all of which are typically not replicated in today's new development, even within conversions of old world buildings.

Proceeding beyond the great room is a spacious den that also can accommodate guests or provide a quiet retreat. The flexible, well-proportioned main rooms work equally well for gatherings or relaxation and the homes generosity of space lends itself to alternate configurations, subject to applicable rules.
Wonderful glass-paneled, wood-frame French doors at the far end of the loft reveal the serene master bedroom, enhanced by a whimsical decorative wall design, built-in sound system and custom dressing closet.
