This Lower East Side loft is so grand you need a wide-angled lens to capture all its lofty goodness in a photo. The apartment comes from 345 Grand Street, a cast iron building that is now a six-unit condo. It’s just been listed for rent for a hefty $17,500 a month. With all that money comes excellent features—the original wood beamed joist ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace, a private terrace—as well as 2,500 square feet of space to spread out. Another bonus: this well-designed space will come fully furnished for the lucky renter.
Once you exit the private keyed elevator, most of the square footage is dedicated to a totally open living, dining and kitchen “great room.” It’s huge enough for an ten-person dining table, massive couch and room to spare. And it’s all lit by four different exposures.
As if a ten-person dining table isn’t enough room for a dinner party, check out that breakfast bar. (That’s made of Carrera Marble.) The kitchen was designed by a chef so you know it’s drool-worthy: imported cabinets, a hot water pot filler, professional oven hood, and lots of extra cold storage and counter space.
A renovation added glass and wood accents to the original warehouse details. Behind a cast iron column, a floor-to-ceiling sliding wood door leads to one very cool, minimalist bedroom. While it may not be as sprawling as the great room, it has a nice big walk-in closet.
There’s more glass in the bathroom, although it boasts a richer marble interior as well as a soaking tub, steam and rain shower and separate water closet.
Are you envisioning the great parties you could pull off in this full-floor loft? Then the private, enclosed terrace will not disappoint–as the listing says, it “can easily accommodate a dinner party of 12.” We’re sold!
