At its heart Union Square is a microcosm of the city it calls home. Simply stroll through its center on any given day and you’ll find a colorful, ever-changing street scene of entertainers, eccentrics, merchants and city folk passing through or stopping to meet. Similarly, this gorgeous unit at 10 East 14th Street in the Union Square Lofts and Flats is representative of the quintessential “old world-new world” luxury apartment. Steeped in historic pre-war details such as wide plank hardwood floors, cast iron columns and exposed brick walls throughout, the full floor 2BR/2.5BA home is also filled with the finest in modern touches and high-tech amenities, all combining to create a truly gracious residence.
When you step out of the key-locked elevator you are greeted by an enormously grand living and dining area. Every inch of this wide open space, from the tall multi-height ceilings to the beautiful light wood floors, is filled with sunlight all day long thanks to an impressive full wall of floor-to-ceiling windows. A remote-controlled gas fireplace stylishly encased in lava stone and walnut paneling offers a lovely focal point, and also keeps things cozy on cold winter nights.
A home this ripe for entertaining needs a kitchen that’s up to the task, and with top-of-the line stainless steel appliances including a Viking stove, Sub-Zero fridge and freezer, two Miele dishwashers, and a separate wet bar with a GE wine cooler, all designed seamlessly into a sleek row of walnut cabinetry and limestone counters, this home’s open chef’s kitchen does not disappoint. There’s even a wonderful little eating bar for a quick meal for your more casual get-togethers.
Toward the quiet rear of the building, completely separated from the living space, you will find the unit’s more private sleeping quarters. Both sunny bedrooms include extensive custom built-in closets, and the master bedroom features a huge and luxurious en-suite bathroom with a Jason hydrotherapy tub, rain shower, thermostatically controlled heated floor and his-and-hers vanities. A similarly appointed Jack-and-Jill bathroom connects the second bedroom and a third room, currently set up as a home office/guest room.
Yes, we definitely think living in this 2500+ square-foot home located in the middle of vibrant Greenwich Village would put a smile on our face every day – diamonds have a way of doing that.
