In the bustling and buzzy South Bronx community of Mott Haven, this bonafide loft at 305 East 140th Street is also a 2008 condominium conversion known as Bronx Bricks. Constructed in 1904, the classic loft building features a ground-floor art gallery and adjacent theater performance space, both of which highlight the neighborhood’s vibrant arts community. The 1,290-square-foot unit is asking $839,000.
Within are caramel-hued maple hardwood floors, ceilings nearly 11 feet tall, and a wall of six oversized double-paned windows. A renovated loft-style kitchen mixes cherry wood cabinets with granite worktops and stainless steel appliances.
Also integrated into the loft’s design are original 15-inch pine posts and beams. A custom storage area continues the rustic industrial materiality.
A separate sleeping area is enclosed by sliding frosted glass doors and custom bookcases. The renovated bath features lots of wood and white, and large tiles.
A lofted bed offers a guest space or storage, with more storage below. The building offers even more storage in the basement, bike storage, an elevator, video intercom security, a laundry room, a roof deck with a grill and solar panels on the roof providing electricity to each apartment. The 6 subway is just two blocks away on 138th Street, and it’s just one stop to Manhattan.
