That’s right, little darling, we have here a sun-soaked duplex apartment that will make you want to belt out Beatles’ tunes. The 2BR/1BA apartment at 74 Reade Street comes complete with 3,000 square feet of flexible space and a live/work permit — the perfect combination for an artist or entrepreneur looking to personalize their home.
Apartment 1E is listed for $3.1 million. Its selling point is most definitely the abundance of natural light that shines in through the full wall of double-height windows on the first floor and large, geometric skylights that grace each bedroom. The open floor plan, huge exposed brick walls, and 15-foot tin ceilings add to the bright, airy feel of the apartment.
The kitchen has a breakfast bar, sleek wooden cabinets, a large pantry, and stainless steel appliances. It’s part of the huge, main living space that features hardwood floors, exposed industrial piping, and a combination of fun hanging lights. Down the hall are two rear-facing bedrooms and the bathroom. There’s also a mezzanine level that overlooks the rest of the home.
A bonus in this apartment is the basement-level room that runs the full length of the building and is still in its raw, industrial state. It comes with a laundry room and storage closet. The beautifully landscaped roof deck with views of the World Trade Center is another perk of the historic building. It goes without saying, but you’ll definitely get plenty of vitamin D here!
