When an apartment has really good bones, there’s no need to crowd it with stuff. Or at least that’s the thinking behind the interiors at this floor-through loft in the East Village at 432 East 10th Street. Now on the market for $1.595 million, the two-bedroom, 1,400-square-foot pad basks in details like high ceilings, big windows, and exposed brick. (Even the brick’s been painted white to minimize its appearance.) Top that off with smart, if sparse, design, and it makes for an impressive space.
The great room spans more than 40 feet and is lined with three north-facing windows that look out onto treetops. On either side of the room, two wood-burning fireplaces are surrounded by exposed brick, painted white. Of course, all that space (and those high walls) could potentially hold a lot of furniture and artwork, but the current owners have kept things very restrained.
The kitchen, also a part of the open great room, has an industrial-inspired design, with some chrome details decorating the otherwise white interior. Lots of cabinet and counter space mean that the walls don’t have to be crowded with cabinetry.
Both bedrooms are situated in the rear of the apartment, adding some privacy and quiet. They’ve also got those huge windows with built-in storage underneath. The larger bedroom, pictured above, is particularly striking with its full wall of painted brick; the room also boasts two closets. The full bathroom that the bedrooms share has a marble interior with glass tiles lining the walk-in shower and tub.
432 East 10th Street is an eight-unit co-op that just got a restored facade, according to the listing. We love the graffiti that marks the entryway–a reminder of the apartment’s gritty Alphabet City location–even though the apartment itself is quite refined.
