If you’re looking for quintessential loft living in downtown Manhattan (and you’re not looking for a bargain), Tribeca is the perfect spot to start. The once-industrial-reborn-as-fancy neighborhood is filled with historic former factory and warehouse buildings (many converted to co-ops and condominiums) and new buildings made to look like them. The co-ops that occupy the former sail factory at 474 Greenwich Street are the real deal (we toured a similarly one-of-a-kind higher-floor unit in the same building a while back). For $2.5 million, this ground-floor live/work residence has the space, the artistic pedigree, the decidedly colorful present, and the totally flexible future for the loft-seeking buyer.
Unique indeed, this entire-floor co-op has 14-foot exposed wood beam ceilings and exposed brick walls, though we don’t know exactly how much of them it has, as there’s no overall interior measurement in the listing. What the listing does suggest is that “the apartment is grand in scale with endless layout possibilities to suit the new owner” and a “rare opportunity to create the home of your dreams according to your individual preference…”
It all begins with an expansive living and dining area and an open kitchen with stainless appliances including a Garland six-burner stove with broiler and grill top (which sounds terrific but isn’t pictured except waaay off in the distance).
An “artfully conceived bowed staircase” leads us to the mezzanine. In the basement, there’s a washer/dryer and a large individually-owned storage space.
The space currently offers three loft bedrooms and a large (and most creative, we might add) master bath. The bedrooms aren’t pictured, but, other than the fact that they don’t look to have any windows judging from the floor plan, they’re decently sized and par for the course in a standard-issue loft.
Tribeca’s no high-crime area, but you can never be too careful, and to that end there’s the mention of a video security system. There’s a common roof deck, a definite bonus, and this is an elevator building, so you don’t need to drag yourself up six flights of stairs to arrive there.
