SOHO CIRCA 1872
History and luxury mingle to stunning effect in this majestic corner loft located right in the heart of Soho's landmarked Cast-iron district. Bathed in natural sunlight from 16 enormous windows, this enchanted 3,800 square foot residence is guaranteed to elevate your senses with grand-scaled rooms, soaring ceilings, and iconic views of the surrounding facades, ornate cornices, and romantic water towers that define the very spirit and essence of Soho! From the moment you step off the key-locked elevator, you know you've arrived somewhere special. A wide private landing leads to a breathtakingly beautiful corner Living/Dining room with 12-foot ceilings, classic fluted columns, wide-plank oak floors, and brilliant light through impressive wood sash windows with their original hand-blown glass panes intact. The gorgeous state-of-the-art chef's kitchen with center-island is open to the entertaining area and features two-inch thick Carrera marble countertops, endless custom-milled cabinetry with hand forged latches and hardware, a deep Shaw's farmer sink, and top-of-the-line appliances including a 6-burner Viking range with griddle and hood vented to the outside, a Bosch dishwasher, and a professional Traulson refrigerator.
Off the living room, dramatic French doors open to reveal the palatial Master Bedroom Suite, a loft unto itself with a separate sitting area, enormous custom-fitted walk-in closet, and an exquisite en-suite bathroom clad in Carrara marble with custom vanity, sumptuous steam shower, and deep soaking tub for two. At the opposite end of the loft, you'll find two light-filled guest bedrooms each with fitted closets, and an utterly charming guest bathroom replete with an antique pedestal sink, glass-enclosed rain shower with vintage fixtures, and a deep claw foot tub in which to soak away the stresses of the day. Every inch of this incredible home has been carefully restored using quality materials that respect and preserve the integrity of the original architecture. Additional amenities include multi-zoned central air-conditioning, a separate laundry room, custom Lutron lighting on dimmers, and a tasteful powder room for guests.
Built in 1872 as a silk warehouse and converted to coop in 1976, the building sits regally at the corner of Grand and Greene Streets and features solid financials, a part-time superintendent, and a permanent Certificate of Occupancy. This rare and very special offering will appeal to those who appreciate luxury and have a passion for preserving the soul and texture of old New York. Extraordinary!
