Oh how we love Soho’s Cast Iron District. Its cobblestone streets and classic facades set the stage so beautifully for the lofts within. Wide open floor plans showered with an abundance of natural light courtesy of big, bold windows. Soaring 12-foot ceilings and original cast iron columns scattered about serving as a lovely reminder of the area’s industrial roots.
And the 1,800-square-foot residence at 19 Greene Street is no exception—plus it comes with a little something extra for its $2.7M price tag: an unusually placed clawfoot tub in the home’s sleeping quarters. Though we’ve written about showers and bathtubs in kitchens (and scratched our heads at the thought), the current owner of this loft just might be on to something. How nice would it be to take a long, luxurious soak and then slip into bed for the evening? Of course, if the virtually wall-less layout leaves you feeling a bit too exposed, you can always avail yourself of the rain shower in the more traditional bathroom.
The sleek, open kitchen–which could almost be mistaken for an office space–is perfectly positioned to host the rest of the home, and features a sizable eating counter as well as plenty of storage.
Gleaming original hardwood floors and yet-to-be uncovered brick walls are a study in minimalism and offer a clean palette filled with possibilities. There’s even an alternate two-bedroom, two-bathroom floor plan to help get you started.
Tucked away on quiet and charming Greene Street, just outside the daily bustle of the city that never sleeps, this classic loft also provides easy access to all of downtown Manhattan’s finest dining, shopping and entertainment.
