There’s a new listing in the landmarked building at 53 Crosby Street in Soho, asking 3.995 million. If being on the market were a professional career, this quintessential loft would be the one others would go to for advice, because between rentals and sales listings, it’s been a regular since 2012. Nonetheless, it’s a nice bright pad with original oak floors, high ceilings, prewar details, and a flexible layout that even allows for some of your own creative input. And there’s one other daring detail that sets this place apart…
Enter the apartment from a keyed elevator and walk directly into the main living space. The living room has trippy fake windows with mirrored panels instead of glass (but it really looks nice). Just opposite the living room, the open chef’s kitchen features high-end appliances and an island with a bar and caesarstone countertops. There’s a dining area right next to the kitchen, and off the dining room is a bright home office with three oversized casement windows and a glass wall divider to let the light filter into the main living space.
On the other side of the kitchen, there’s a den with lots of storage and three windowed bedrooms. Two of the rooms dared to go against the grain and feature eastern light, which is rare in Soho, and presumably reserved for early birds. The master has two of these bold eastern windows, along with three closets and an en suite bathroom. A note in the broker babble says there’s a possibility for a third bathroom and more windows—we’re guessing in place of the fake mirror ones—with board approval.
53 Crosby Street is a pet-friendly co-op built in 1900. The six-story building is self-managed and allows unlimited subletting and pied a terres. Residents are just a short walk away from downtown restaurants, dining, shopping, and galleries.
