Lofts being what they are, multi-level sleeping arrangements are often part of their appeal. We’ve seen every kind of “mezzanine” situation, but this lovely West Village condo at 130 Barrow Street seems a bit too polished to get the kind of pass one would allow a barely-heated Bushwick loft. The listing calls this 933-square-foot apartment flexible, and that’s a fair adjective, as the space can be used as-is (it was configured to make use of double-height ceilings to create a massive walk-in closet) or re-done in any number of ways–with or without the “infinity-edge” sleeping platform.
In a building that was built in 1931 as a truck garage, this duplex loft condo starts with 14-foot ceilings and enviable closets and storage space. The renovated home currently functions as a “flexible one-bedroom with lofted second bedroom/den/home office.” A large double height living/dining room has big loft windows and an open kitchen.
The aforementioned loft space overlooking the living/dining room “could function ideally as an office, second bedroom or den” provided you can brave the “architectural library style ladder” (alternately, you could build an integrated staircase).
The master bedroom currently contains a “dramatic lofted bed area” (this one gets a custom wood staircase) that results in a massive walk-in master closet below. The loft bed can be easily removed if you need more bedroom space (or tend to sleepwalk).
There’s a washer/dryer in the apartment, and the building offers a live-in super, a full time porter, a video security system, a package room and, best of all, a roof deck with sweeping river views, all on a tranquil West Village block just off the Hudson River Park.
