This unique and dramatic two-bedrooom East Village duplex at 125 East 12th Street might not be quite as awe-inspiring as this East Village pad that has a retractable facade, but with its 16-foot ceilings, massive wall of windows and flexible spaces in every direction it reminds us a little of why these customized lofts are so cool. That other super-tall air-loft sold for $2.4 million three years ago; this one’s asking $2.995 million right now. The latter has a lot more space, central air, a roof deck, an elevator and a doorman–and it’s in a very cool-looking 1900-era loft building called The Zachary, which is pretty impressive all on its own.
Enter the apartment into a huge great room with a granite decorative fireplace. Cantilevered windows bring sunshine in from everywhere.
The modern kitchen is a sunny affair in beechwood and frosted glass with a Gaggenau stove, SubZero refrigerator, slate flooring and stone countertops. There’s plenty of room for everything to have its place.
All of the bedrooms in this home are large, and the “other” rooms (office, extra bedroom, huge closet, whatever) are many, though to be fair, lofts are known for their shifting walls and many options. Upstairs, an enormous master suite has its own “enclosed sunroom or home office,” plus a marble bath. We’d like a little more ceiling height to go with that.
Even with all the space and flexibility, there are still many walk-in closets throughout, plus a washer/dryer and the aforementioned doorman, roof deck and a full-time super.
