If you’ve got something going for you, flaunt it. That’s the case with this apartment at 644 Broadway, a NoHo co-op building, and its windows. These glorious windows are from an impressive building, formerly known as the Manhattan Savings Institution Bank Building. It was constructed in 1890 by architect Stephen Decatur Hatch as a mixture of Queen Anne and Romanesque Revival styles with sandstone, terracotta, brick, copper and cast iron on the facade. It was converted to a co-op in the 1980s, and the grand facade still remains well preserved. And from this two-bedroom co-op, now priced at $4.25 million, you certainly benefit from the extravagant design. The rest of the apartment, however, has been thoroughly modernized.
The listing plainly lays out this apartment’s perks: “What could be better than the combination of high 10’9″ ceilings, arched floor to ceiling windows framed in oak, a beautiful well designed kitchen and even a Juliette balcony?” We don’t know! Indeed, the high ceilings and oak-framed windows are really doing it for us. And because it’s a corner unit, you get both southern and eastern exposures.
This apartment has been renovated to accommodate art collectors—hence all the fancy (and weirdly blurred out) art that’s hanging around. The 2,300 square foot space feels less lofty and more like a gallery; with a large, open living and dining area plus kitchen.
Here’s a look at the kitchen, which is quite modern. The floor-to-ceiling cabinet space blends well with the light wood flooring.
There are a few historic remnants of the building on display, like these old columns in the office and library area.
And here is one of the two bedrooms, located right off the library. Even in here, the artwork is the star of the show, and it looks good under those tall, wood-paneled ceilings. What would really make this room complete, though? More windows!
