Nestled on a cobblestoned stretch of Mercer Street in SoHo's coveted Cast Iron Historic District, this bright, spacious and intimate floor-through condo residence (with central air and laundry) is the quintessential Downtown NYC loft.
A key-locked elevator opens directly into a private entry vestibule with a coat closet. Through a dramatic wrought iron door is an enormous great room which spans nearly 24 feet and boasts soaring 11-foot ceilings, maple hardwood flooring and historical details throughout. Light pours into this airy loft through three massive 7-foot windows which reveal eastern sky. A functional wood-burning fireplace and floor-to-ceiling exposed wooden beams pay homage to the neighborhood's storied past.
In the open kitchen, a vented industrial hood floats above a custom island with a built-in Viking Professional gas range-top. Finished in crisp white subway tile and fit for a chef, this space is outfitted with premium stainless steel appliances (Sub-Zero and Viking Professional), a wine fridge, Insinkerator garbage disposal, a ceiling pot rack, and an abundance of cabinetry and countertops.
A hallway lined with built-in storage leads to the two large, light-filled west-facing bedrooms (with sky!), both equipped with CitiQuiet windows. The primary suite boasts an exposed brick wall, several large closets and a colorful bathhouse-inspired "spa" reminiscent of SoHo's artistic roots, complete with a double-sink, a mosaic wet-room and a vintage cast-iron clawfoot soaking tub illuminated by a mesmerizing chandelier. The second bedroom with a pivot door entrance features a built-in desk and showcases an exposed wooden beam. Adjacent is the second bathroom, appointed with black slate tile, a glass-enclosed 'halo' rain shower and a globe pendant.
Additional highlights of this distinctive loft include a washer/dryer, central air conditioning, art rails (for the avid collector), a window bench spanning the width of the residence, and copious amounts of custom cabinetry and storage throughout.
77 Mercer, constructed in 1876 by Jesse W. Powers, is a boutique six-story residential loft condominium building. The carefully preserved facade is divided in two, with separate entrances each equipped with a video intercom and key-locked elevator. This cobblestone section of Mercer Street is in SoHo's prime Cast Iron Historic District, adjacent to some of the most famous boutiques and restaurants in Manhattan. Residents have access to all that SoHo has to offer, while also enjoying the quiet, private setting of this coveted block.
