There’s a spacious $2 million loft available at 118 Forsyth Street, right on the cusp of the Lower East Side and Little Italy. This home was purchased for $1.21 million in 2009, and while it currently has an open layout, there’s definitely plenty of room to add multiple rooms and additional bathrooms. So basically, this place is a turnkey build-your-dream-home. Winning!

The prewar ground floor unit has 12-foot ceilings throughout. One wall of the designated great room is lined with oversized windows. The large chef’s kitchen is marked by cool stained glass windows and elaborate wood detail. There’s also a center island, exposed ductwork, plenty of storage and enough wall space to add more. A set of oversized doors opens to the living room, which has hardwood floors, exposed brick walls, and two walls of enormous windows.

There’s also a 221-square-foot basement recreational space accessible via an internal staircase. It’s currently being used as storage but the possibilities are vast. We’re already tossing around ideas like a home gym or an abstract art studio.

118 Forsyth Street is a seven-unit self-managed co-op right next to Sara Delano Roosevelt Park. No one will be happier to know that than Odie, because, as you’ve probably noticed from the pictures, this is a pet-friendly building. It’s also a live/work-friendly building. In fact, this liberal coop allows for a lot of freedom. The unit also comes with a washer and dryer and central air and heat.
