Loft lovers and perfectionists will covet this sprawling Greenwich Village condominium at 8 East 12th Street; it’s both spacious and luxurious, boasting handcrafted organic materials in custom-designed interiors and switched-on, “smart home” creature comforts high and low. For your $5.4 million, you’re getting location (near just about all the reasons you’d want to live downtown) and 2,330 square feet of painstakingly-created space for you to move in and enjoy. The current setup offers two bedrooms and 2.5 baths, but there’s enough space here for any combination–and all the bells and whistles are already installed.

This could be the first oven we’ve seen with a green roof.

Introduced as “organic opulence,” this full-floor loft space starts with a private keyed elevator. Inside the home are 12-foot beamed ceilings above and modern handcrafted finishes throughout. You’ll find end-cut fir flooring, 20 feet of paneled north- and south-facing windows, exposed brick and custom additions like an 11-by-10-foot console made from an oxidized steel post and shelves of stained heartland pine.

The kitchen will thrill anyone who appreciates innovative use of organic materials (or cooks): A 10-foot black live-edged walnut island, three 12-foot stained heartland pine shelves and a custom-poured concrete counter frame top-of-the-line appliances from Sub-Zero, Gaggenau and Dornbracht.

Now for the perfectionist part: The home features two-zone central air with remote thermostats, a full alarm system, and a top-of-the-line LG steam washer/dryer. According to the listing, it all runs like (digital) clockwork on an “Apple-friendly, six-zone Savant system, offering flexible configuration for media, environment and lighting.”

It isn’t mentioned, but it looks like Junior has a pretty nice view from the crib.

Bedrooms are spacious, and the master has, according to the floor plan, both double walk-in closets and an enormous 13-foot-by-9-foot closet/dressing room. If you’re not that closet-intensive, this could easily be an office (albeit a windowless one). The media room just behind the kitchen could also be another large bedroom, this time with windows.

Bathrooms feature custom vanities, Waterworks tiles and Barber Wilsons fixtures.

Built in 1908, this 12-unit condominium building offers a paved roof deck, two separate elevator banks, a full-time superintendent, bike storage and a video intercom. Located two blocks from Union Square, this home is in a perfect location to access every amenity and destination downtown Manhattan has to offer, including the city’s best Greenmarket and hundreds of new eateries, parks, bars, shopping and every type of public transportation in the city.
