Location, location, location. Well, this large and sunny loft is located, quite literally, on a “great street” – 43 Great Jones Street, to be exact. And though the classic exterior of the building looks much as it did when first constructed in 1920, its interior has been beautifully renovated, blending many of the original industrial details with more refined modern touches.
When the elevator opens directly to the 2,296-square-foot, full-floor residence you can’t help but be impressed by the nearly 700-square-feet of living/dining space, gorgeously accented by four oversized windows and prairie-style ceiling ornamentation. If the sunlight streaming in isn’t bright enough for you (hey, even though the city never sleeps, the sun has to eventually set), a series of curious yet lovely ceiling light fixtures will ensure you’re never in the dark.
Quite frankly, given the expansive gallery space that commands one entire wall of the room, you may always want a little ambient lighting showcasing your favorite pieces of art. With the opposite wall boasting an abundance of custom built-in shelving, you can display all of your most cherished mementos and store more books than you probably own.
Speaking of art, the open gourmet kitchen is a culinary masterpiece, featuring stainless steel countertops and appliances, a built-in cooktop, and walk-in pantry. And because it is conveniently situated next to the main living area, you can easily whip up a family meal or entertain guests while still being part of the action.
Exposed white washed brick walls adorn the home’s two bedrooms, each of which have their own spa-quality, newly renovated bathroom. A small study complete with a large double closet can also be used as a third bedroom.
When you consider all of this plus the pristine walnut floors throughout, sizable closet space, washer/dryer, central air, private 200-square-foot storage room, common roof deck, and the wonderful Noho location, you’ll find yourself thinking the $3.4+ million price tag doesn’t seem too unreasonable for a great loft on a great street.
