To be honest, we’re finding this 2,500 square-foot full-floor rental loft in a pre-war Flatiron District building at 4 West 22nd Street super exciting… It’s got a somehow just-right combination of gorgeous loft bones, creative-cool decor, lots and lots of space, and two actual bedrooms (that are decent-sized) plus possibly room to create a temporary third, actual closets, and a kitchen that looks like it can’t wait to cook, party, or both at once; the neighborhood is a fortunate confluence of everything newly-trendy in Manhattan. The rent, it seems, has been assigned accordingly at $9,800—the owners are banking on plenty of people getting just as excited.
In true authentic loft style, this apartment occupying the entire third floor has keyed elevator access, three exposures, exposed brick, oversized windows and high ceilings plus the convenience of a washer/dryer. Upon entering the central common area—which is huge—there’s a great built-in bookshelf/room-divider between the kitchen area and the living/dining space. The kitchen is lofty perfection with steel countertops and bright white cabinets and a big, cheerful island/breakfast bar. Off the living room is an office area (see floor plan in the gallery below) that looks like it could almost be a separate windowed sleeping area with (it’s a rental, so you can’t count on making renovations) a temporary divider in place.
The actual bedrooms are good-sized (one’s a little narrow); one has a huge walk-in closet. Both have tons of windows, polished hardwood floors, funky furniture and art, and beds that look pretty comfy. No mention of whether the furniture is sticking around, or whether the surfboards are part of the deal, so you’ll have to supply your own creativity and color.
This pet-friendly (and live/work-friendly!) loft is located in a pretty historic building, with local restaurant Sagaponack Grill on the ground floor, a block from Madison Square Park and with restaurants, shopping, sophisticated nightlife and neighborhood destinations like Eataly in every direction.
