This 1,500-square-foot classic loft co-op, asking $1.75 million, is in a neighborhood filled with lofts. What makes this Tribeca home at 160 Chambers Street a bit different is its former life as the Engine 29 firehouse. Loft lovers will be happy to note that though it has been recently renovated, 12-foot tin ceilings, exposed brick walls, hardwood floors and oversized windows remain. Currently a walk-up, the coop plans to install an elevator.
Currently configured as a two-bedroom loft, there’s space to add a bath or change the layout. The home begins with a foyer lined with a floor-to-ceiling closet. The living/dining area has three tall windows for maximum light all day. A working fireplace surrounded by built-in bookcases adds even more charm.
An open kitchen features top-of-the-line appliances including a SubZero refrigerator, KitchenAid dishwasher and Viking stove, plus plenty of storage space. Painted gray brick gives the historic loft vibe a sophisticated frame.
The home’s spacious master bedroom also has large windows. The second bedroom–currently set up as a home office–features a murphy bed for guests. There’s also an in-unit washer/dryer.
The self-managed co-op has low monthly maintenance and receives income from ground floor commercial tenants.
