A Well-Considered Layout Makes This $3.8M Tribeca Loft Feel Like Home

Though $3.8 million is no bargain for a two-bedroom apartment–even a 1,900 square-foot loft in pricey Tribeca–the layout of this sixth-floor penthouse at 38-40 North Moore Street gives it some unusual advantages. On the one hand there really isn’t a whole lot of “extra” space to play with; on the other, as it’s currently configured, the bedroom, bath and laundry portion of the home seems pleasantly sheltered and removed from the vast rectangular living/dining/entertaining area, conferring the feeling that it’s a private wing for private life.

Accessed by a private elevator landing at the far corner of the loft, the main living space is unusually warm and inviting, though as open as any room nearly 48 feet long, with 12-foot ceilings. This entertaining and gathering zone is well-divided, with a cozy home office nook off the kitchen. The living area feels almost like a separate lounge, anchored by a sleek but substantial “eco-friendly” concrete fireplace. There are also textured walls, custom lighting, and built-in storage.

Original loft detailing like exposed brick, those 12-foot ceilings, and wood columns, beams and floors blend seamlessly with modern luxuries and comforts. Oversized windows on four exposures, plus two skylights, fill the entire space with sunlight.

The focal point of the main space is the huge–but also elegant and inviting–custom kitchen and dining area with solid walnut and zinc countertops, top-of-the-line appliances, and carefully chosen custom finishes. Tucked into just the right amount of space in one corner is the aforementioned home office nook–plus hidden storage space.

A glamorous master suite contains a bedroom facing east and west, a spacious walk-in closet, and a large master bath that boasts luxury finishes, a deep soaking tub, a glass-enclosed shower, a custom vanity and more storage.

The second bedroom may be small and narrow, but in keeping with the home’s smart design, custom bunk beds feature lots of storage, and two big closets made it in (often the first thing to go when carving out bedroom space). The guest bathroom is just as elegant as the master. A large laundry room with actual laundry closets once again puts comfort at the forefront.
