Huge Flatiron loft that was once home to artist Julian Schnabel asks $10M

Sure, this three-bedroom Flatiron co-op checks all the boxes of a downtown loft–sprawling footprint (7,100 square feet to be exact), high ceilings, 32 oversized windows, a cool mezzanine setup–but its artistic pedigree is what’s really unique. Located at 20 East 20th Street, the home was converted in 1977 by influential artists Gordon Matta-Clark and Les Levine, and it was at one time home to both Anselm Keifer and Julian Schnabel, the latter of whom also used the space as his studio. It’s now on the market for $9,995,000.

Upon entering, either by stairs or a private elevator landing, you’re welcomed into the large great room, where northern-facing windows provide views of historic East 20th Street and the iconic Met Life building. Throughout, you’ll find sliding wall flexibility to separate or conceal the private spaces from public view.

The kitchen is right off the entrance and was designed by former owner Julian Schnabel.

Off the great room is the primary bedroom suite. It has one large dressing room, three smaller dressing room nooks, and an en-suite bathroom with a separate toilet closet. There’s also a second elevator landing here.

From there, the rest of the open space contains a dining room, media room, and an additional living room.

There are even more rooms on this level, including a meditation/yoga room, study, storage, and another bedroom with a large closet.

The mezzanine level is highlighted by a massive floor-to-ceiling bookshelf, and it leads down to the lower level.

Here, more large bookshelves divide a work room/office space (complete with a wet bar) and a conference room/gallery. There’s also another open living room. As the listing states, “The key-locked elevator opens directly into the workspace offering a separation from work and home.”

A bedroom and an adjacent bathroom round out the lower level.
