Thirteen windows wrapping around three sides of this 1,100 square foot loft means bright and airy in a big way – even the bedroom closet and bathroom are filled with sunlight!
Overlooking two of the building’s three charming courtyards this gorgeous unit at 140 Sullivan Street has a wonderfully open floor plan with extra high ceilings exposing all of the original wood and steel beams, wide plank cherry floors throughout, and built-ins galore. And while a NYC curator created this open concept to merge the aesthetics of uptown chic with the artistic and architectural details of downtown, this home presents its next owner with a virtual clean slate as there is plenty of space to carve out additional bedrooms, an office, even formalize the dining and living areas.
Right this way for hmmm and mmmm
If you’re wondering what to do with that extra $12 million, consider the stunning penthouse triplex at 111 Mercer Street. This condo offers more than gorgeous city views, it practically invites the city in for coffee.
If you’re reading this we’re going to assume we don’t have to tell you this penthouse is flooded with light… unless, of course, you’re blinded by it. The main floor of the 3,500-square-foot ultra chic condo is framed in all glass NanaWalls that open to its expansive terraces, creating the ultimate indoor/outdoor living experience. The living room and dining area opens up to a 1,200-square-foot terrace — or let’s be honest — it’s an outdoor living room. Meanwhile the kitchen has its own terrace complete with an outdoor dining space… and a fireplace… and west facing sunset-ready views… of the Freedom Tower. Want more?

After more than half a year on the market, the Broome Street co-op with an interesting honey-comb skylight has finally sold for $2.155 million.
There’s no doubt 428 Broome Street #1R is an interesting unit, even for a building constructed in 1879. The Soho loft has all the tell-tale signs of an older reconstruction with exposed brick walls, 16’ ceilings and an open floor plan – one that features 1,765 square feet of open floor space. However, the cast iron Corinthian columns and the honey-comb skylight give the loft an almost medieval vibe. The result is an interesting contrast to Soho’s typical industrial architecture.

It’s New York. We live in close proximity and have all had those annoying neighbors — the man that moves his furniture around in the middle of the night, the college students that blast electronic music, and the couple with the dog that never stops howling. It’s not every day, though, that you get neighbors operating a full-on filming studio out of their home, but that’s exactly what Chelsea residents accused interior designer Betsy Morgan and her husband Jonathan Cary of, according to the New York Post. It was reported that Morgan was illegally advertising her $6 million West 21st Street townhouse on numerous websites for film locations and photography shoots at the rate of $850 per day, the ruckus from which did not make neighbors happy.
The couple is now making headlines again by purchasing the city’s largest available simplex at 84 Mercer Street. The $4.5 million, 9,000-square-foot loft is definitely camera worthy with its original wooden beams and columns, huge open layout, and remarkable potential for displaying art, but let’s hope Ms. Morgan will not be bringing any outside cameras into her new pad.

The kitchen features top of the line appliances with a Sub-Zero refrigerator and a Waterstone Filtration System.

When you look at these New York buildings, it’s hard to imagine there’s space for a 7,000-square-foot loft inside. Well, the former home of Justin and Nicole Ehrlich is one of those spaces. 20 Greene Street #6A is definitely deserving of an Academy award with its dramatic tall ceilings and oversized windows. And it just sold to the tune of $14.5 million. This Soho loft, listed by Douglas Elliman, doesn’t do anything halfway. Its giant living room is large enough to be its own apartment, for starters.

An empty corner lot in one of the most sought after neighborhoods in the city? Now that doesn’t come along every day. When presented with this rare blank slate in 2012, the architects at Kohn Pederson Fox went to work creating an elegant, contemporary building that blends seamlessly with its SoHo-Cast Iron Historic District environs.
The result: a luxurious, window-filled residential condominium at 27 Wooster Street in Soho, complete with Thomas Juul-Hansen-designed interiors, a host of upscale amenities, and — wait for it — parking.

Leo Yoshimura, a set designer and art director for late night television shows like Saturday Night Live and the Late Show with Conan O’Brien, has purchased unit 5W at SoHo’s 565 Broadway for $4.2 million through a listing held by Keller Williams. This is a D2 class/artist in residence building, meaning it’s a former industrial site that was converted to residential and now its apartments must be inhabited by a certified artist.
The artistically designed loft seamlessly blends historic character with sleek modernism. Original columns punctuate the 2,740-square-foot 3BR/3BA space, which retains its large windows and high ceilings. The interior window cutouts let natural light traverse the entire unit, as does the contemporary frosted glass divider that leads into the boldly painted red den.

It’s hard to imagine that in the mid-20th century the quaint little street known as Broome was the proposed site for the ten-lane Lower Manhattan Expressway, replacing all of the buildings on its north side — including this beautiful charmer at #456.
Thankfully those plans never came to fruition and this stunning home with towering 14-foot ceilings, wide plank floors, and intentionally distressed exposed brick walls survived to welcome a new generation of New Yorkers into its midst.

It looks like Town Residential’s Danny Davis has done it again. He has made someone fall in love with another apartment, this time at 125 Watts Street. Unit #4 is the quintessential loft experience with high ceilings, white brick walls and tons of light.

This area has those desirable cobblestone streets, not to mention having plenty of dining and shopping to appeal to your chic side, while still being situated right near Hudson River Park and Pier 25 to appeal to your athletic side. You know what they call that? Nirvana.
