This pre-war co-op at 26 Beaver Street in the Financial District is a loft-like corner unit with plenty of interesting architectural details, not least of which is a stunning set of broad brass gates that stand at the apartment’s entrance. Asking $2,450,000, the sprawling 2,400-square-foot home is currently configured with two large bedrooms, but there’s more than enough living space to create a three- or four-bedroom home.

Twenty-first-century amenities include a zoned central air conditioning system, a vented washer/dryer, and a renovated kitchen and bathrooms. Additional upgrades include new plumbing, updated electrical wiring, and sunlight-filtering windows to maximize energy efficiency

Enter the 15th-floor home through those dramatic curved gates into an open living, dining and kitchen area that astounds with its size. Exposures to the north, south, and east offer light and city views.

A windowed kitchen is framed by travertine floors, wood cabinetry, and granite worktops. Guest-friendly perks include a wine cooler and a built-in Bose sound system. To keep residents happy, there’s plenty of storage everywhere.

The home’s current bedrooms are big enough to accommodate any number of configurations that include space for working and relaxing. An open layout (see alternate floor plan in the gallery below) leaves room to create one or even two more sizable bedrooms.

Baths are luxurious in travertine, tile, and wood. Walk-in closets and storage are also in abundance. The home also features a laundry room with a half bath conveniently located just outside the kitchen in keeping with the gracious pre-war layout style

The 1909 co-op building was once home to the Norton Lilly Shipping Company. In its modern lifetime, the boutique residence offers a video intercom and keyed elevator system, an on-site superintendent on weekdays, basement storage, and bike storage. The pet-friendly co-op allows 80 percent financing, pieds-a-terre, and subletting.
