This raw-edged, sprawling 3,250 square-foot loft at 34 West 13th Street, on a bustling yet somehow old-school Greenwich Village street is on the market for the first time since the building became a cooperative in the 1970s. Formerly an acting school–there are two stages built in, which could be kind of cool if you’re the theatrical type–the space is currently configured as a two bedroom with a laundry room, a big open kitchen/dining room, a living area and a hall gallery. Located between Fifth and Sixth Avenues, it’s above the Quad Cinema indie theater (set to reopen with a big renovation this fall), which is also great if you love the movies. The ask is $5.25 million, and there are several suggested floor plans (see the photo gallery ahead), should you want to create a three- or four-bedroom home.

A keyed elevator opens directly into the loft, which is the real deal, having retained many of the original details of its conversion to a living space, including 10-foot tin ceilings, exposed brick and twelve windows with north, east, and south exposures.

The 25-foot wide, four-windowed eat-in kitchen looks a lot like today’s trendy version of the colorful and rustic loft kitchen. You could certainly renovate, but it has a certain charm just the way it is.

Off the kitchen, the dining area, on another stage, can give dinner-party drama a whole new angle.

Bedrooms have plenty of exposed brick, plenty of windows, and lots of potential (including adding more of them).

This bedroom works for those of you who prefer clean, white painted brick. That headboard is pretty radical, too.

There are currently one-and-a-half baths, and a laundry room. This cabin-style bathroom will transport you to a Swedish sauna–or a woodland retreat.

You can go way beyond the usual gallery wall and have rotating art exhibits along the fourth floor gallery hallway.

This cooperative is made up of of two loft buildings, steps away from public transportation, shopping, dining, Washington Square Park, Union Square, NYU, The New School and all the charm and history of Greenwich Village with its ever-changing street scene. And about that movie theater downstairs: The Quad Cinema is a beloved art-house theater that was opened in 1972 as one of the city’s oldest independent cinemas. It was purchased in 2014 by a real estate developer who happens to be a film buff, and, after a significant renovation, is slated to re-open later this fall.
