Iconic even among the Flatiron district’s classic loft buildings and historic architecture, the neo-Gothic 1892 MacIntyre Building at 874 Broadway rises 12 stories above the downtown neighborhood with its handsome turrets, Byzantinue columns and Romanesque arches. Asking $6.25 million, this corner loft co-op occupying two of the building’s floors is right at home, overlooking Union Square. A thorough renovation merged two units, resulting in one massive three-bedroom home with a custom-engineered steel and glass staircase and 12-foot ceilings. According to city records, the loft’s current owner is writer-director Tannaz Hazemi (“Before the Bomb”), whose culturally diverse international lifestyle may well have influenced the loft’s spin-the-compass bohemian-luxe decor.
Inside, a foyer opens onto a large corner living/dining area with two walls of windows. Adjacent is an eclectic kitchen with reclaimed chestnut wood cabinetry, a vintage-inspired Tiffany blue refrigerator, an ILVE range and an island topped by a marble slab inlaid with semi-precious stones from India.
On the same floor is a large bedroom and bath and a second bedroom fitted with a custom Murphy bed.
Across the hall is another bath featuring a deep copper soaking tub.
A curving steel spiral staircase brings you to the master suite which features a custom-designed platform bed and an en suite bath with an antique stone farmhouse sink.
Behind a door of reclaimed chestnut is one cool home office, ready for work with room for three workstations–or for conversion to a fourth bedroom. A butler’s pantry/laundry room offers more chestnut cabinetry, an under-counter refrigerator and a full-sized washer and dryer. Next door is a powder room with an antique limestone sink.
The 23-unit elevator building is pet- and pied-a-terre-friendly, with board approval. Bonus: You’ll have “Game of Thrones” hottie Michiel Huisman for a neighbor.
