This classic Tribeca loft at 2 Hubert Street gives you a corner spot with walls of windows, a traditional-meets-modern custom renovation, a private elevator, closet space, and great original details reworked to accommodate daily life. Though this is a busy corner near the highway entrance, that description fits much of the neighborhood, and, in a way, it adds to the unique industrial feel when taken together with these big-shouldered loft buildings.
Built in 1890, 2 Hubert–also known as 151 Hudson Street–is an intimate eight-unit loft condominium building. For $2.65 million, you don’t get a lot of space at 1,222 square feet, but the layout could certainly be reconfigured, and it is, indeed, a two-bedroom apartment in Manhattan’s most expensive residential neighborhood. And the charmingly updated interiors are a definite plus for anyone who wants to move in and get right down to the business of living.
Entry is via private keyed elevator, through original zinc-clad doors. Everywhere are pristine original loft details like exposed wood-beamed 11-foot ceilings, hardwood floors and exposed brick. Open eastern and southern exposures on this rare corner lot mean light through 10 windows in the living room. Also there’s a separate windowed office/guest room divided by massive sliding loft doors.
The spacious custom-designed eat-in kitchen is a mix of warm and casual, industrial and elegant, with Carrara marble countertops, gleaming subway tiles and high-end appliances including a Viking range and hood and a Bosch washer and dryer. The traditional touch comes in the form of brass drawer pulls and gaslight-era industrial lighting.
Rustic wood beams perfectly frame this space, which provides plenty of room for dining as well as cooking.
Exposed brick and an elegant color palette offset one another in common spaces and bedrooms, adding up to a gorgeously livable space. You’ll also find creative design elements like custom wallpaper, mother-of-pearl pushbutton light switches and a rare abundance of customized closets.
In the home’s only bathroom, traditional tongue-in-groove paneling gets modernized in chic licorice, and an old-school clawfoot tub gets gleaming chrome hardware. Marble countertops add a luxurious feel to the space, which has been outfitted with high-end Perrin and Rowe fixtures. In addition to the washer/dryer the unit has central air, a definite plus in a loft.
The neighborhood needs little introduction for anyone who has wandered its cobblestone streets and gazed up at the massive casement windows of lucky loft residents surrounded by some of the city’s most elegant shops and beloved restaurants, family-oriented amenities and neighborly feel despite its completely urban veneer. Several subway lines are within a few blocks, and Rockefeller Park and the Hudson River are a short walk away.
