$1.75M Flatiron loft is an art studio, office, library and cool bedroom retreat under one roof

February 3, 2017

The Flatiron District is known for its big, basic loft apartments, often creatively customized by residents, and this duplex co-op at 131 Fifth Avenue is no exception. Currently on the market for $1.75 million, the art-friendly home has understated bragging points like 15-foot ceilings and 10-foot windows overlooking 5th Avenue, as well as a full suite of interior design tools for creative living.

Enter through the foyer into the large open living/dining room accented with exposed white painted brick. On one wall, floor-to-ceiling metal bookshelves can be accessed with a rolling library ladder. A wall of windows brings in plenty of sunlight.

The totally functional and solidly-designed galley kitchen allows for more room in the main living area while giving everything its place.

Up a smart black staircase on the mezzanine level is a bedroom with full-height ceilings and one very cool fire engine red lacquered wood floor. There’s lots of closet space, a washer/dryer and another office nook overlooking the living space. A second bath could be added if the new owner were so inclined.

The eight-story, 23-unit co-op building was once a Lord & Taylor department store back when this was the bustling Ladies’ Mile (now the Ladies’ Mile Historic District).
