The days of artists sneakily living in lofts not zoned for residential living are mostly over, but there’s still this live/work loft in Soho at 145 Sixth Avenue. The apartment, says the listing, is a “commercially-zoned corner condominium… in a discreet, converted 1900s column-and-beam loft building.” (Previously, it looks like the loft was home to the New York jewelry boutique Talavera.) For nearly $8 million you can have your own commercial space tacked onto this well-designed apartment, which the listing promises was envisioned by an unnamed, famous photographer.

The 3,400-square-foot pad is one of two on the floor. The current layout accommodates a gallery, living room, formal dining area, eat-in kitchen, large foyer, two full bedrooms and a large studio/library space. Each room has been decorated with unique features, like wooden doors salvaged from the original Plaza Hotel.

The antique kitchen tiles in the open kitchen and dining area were sourced from Provence.

Lofty bedrooms are distinguished by wood floor and ceiling beams, not to mention a freestanding, vintage soaking tub. There’s also a large dressing room off the main living room.

Some of the loft’s spaces have been set aside for commercial purposes. It appears that 145 Sixth Avenue is full of unique apartments–just look at the loft next door, an “out of this world” design over 6,000 square feet that was offered as a $40,000/month rental last year.
