Cast iron is prevalent throughout 67 East 11th Street, a Greenwich Village building built in 1868 and converted to a co-op in 1973. Back in the late 19th century, it was home to the James McCreery Dry Goods Store; the facade has beautiful cast iron details like Corinthian columns as well as big arched windows, and this apartment owned by actor Chris Lowell of “Veronica Mars” fame is now on the market for $1.195 million.
The unit is a two bedroom, with the master bedroom located in a sleeping loft above the living room. The lofted space allows for 16-foot ceilings and incredible oversized windows.
The living room is easily the best space in the apartment, with the light streaming in, ceilings high above, exposed brick and a fireplace. Located on the third floor, the windows face southeast and come with views of the historic Grace Church nearby. As you can see above, the original cast iron columns have been worked into the interior design.
This is the second bedroom, which is currently being used as an office space. Lowell has built out lots of storage and custom built-in shelving throughout.
The floorplan is pretty straightforward. Upon entering, there’s a bathroom and closet, then a kitchen to your right. That leads to the open living room and the office/second bedroom. From the living room, stairs lead up to the sleeping loft.
One big perk of the sleeping loft is the full-height ceilings—no one has to crouch up here. It’s definitely big enough for a large bed as well as furniture, and there’s a walk-in closet up here too. The bedroom looks down into the living room below.
Overall, this seems like a quintessentially New York space, a loft with the exposed brick and cast iron detailing. It’s not the only unit in the building boasting such dramatic ceilings—here’s a look at another unit that was on the market for $1.2 million in the summer of last year.
Lowell originally purchased his apartment in 2007 for $869,000.
