A rare find in 21st-century Manhattan, this light-filled loft at 50 West 29th Street in go-go Nomad is a legit live/work space with a history of artists-in-residence. Asking $1.995 million, it’s also a high-floor co-op with Empire State Building views in one of the city’s hottest neighborhoods, with great bones and plenty of potential. In its current state of artsy maximalist splendor, the two-bedroom home has plenty of character and room for creating and living.
Framed by 11-foot ceilings, classic loft windows and poured concrete floors, the apartment’s main space consists of a sprawling studio area and a living and dining area that stretch the length of the building.
A small, private bedroom and a sleeping alcove that could easily be walled off provide privacy on either side of the home. There are only two apartments on each floor.
According to the listing, the unit was occupied for many years by a renowned artist. It’s up to the new owner whether to continue the legacy of traditional loft living or create a completely modern, luxurious living space–or a combination of both.
