The listing says this loft at 265 Water Street in the South Street Seaport is in “first generation” condition, which is definitely apparent from the weathered wooden beams and columns and original maple floors. The historic details and wide-open layout are the perfect backdrops for eclectic furnishings and funky art, making this $1,395,000 co-op a rare find.
The 1,650-square-foot home takes up the entire fourth floor of the building and has a key-locked elevator. The living room has oversized street-facing windows and two decorative mantles. French doors off the living room open to the bedroom, which has a large walk-in closet.
Another set of French doors in the rear of the home lead to what’s labeled on the floorplan as a home office (there’s no window) but is currently set up as an extra bedroom. This room has another small closet. The listing says that the residence has “approved plans for renovation” to add a new kitchen and bathroom.
The building is located on a charming, cobblestone side street with views of the Brooklyn Bridge and just steps away from the bustling South Street Seaport. It’s a quick walk to the 2, 3, 4, 5, A, and C trains at Fulton Street.
