For a mere $14,500 a month, you can rent the style, space, and service of a bygone era in this princely pad in downtown Manhattan’s iconic Police Building at 240 Centre Street, complete with fancy furnishings, two bedrooms, two baths and 1,400 square feet of space. The landmarked Beaux-Arts cooperative at the confluence of Soho, Nolita, and Little Italy is known for its history, its opulent architectural flourishes, and for the impeccable level of service provided for residents.

Loft-like in its pre-war proportions, with high ceilings and a wall of tall windows, this grand home has room for an entire gallery of textiles and furnishings while still appearing spacious. Since said gallery of globally-sourced treasures is already in place, all that’s left for the lucky tenant to do is to lounge, recline, and enjoy.

A great room that spans nearly 40 feet offers open-sky views framed by the rooftops of Nolita. Between the amount of floor space and the number of sofas, entertaining is practically a must.

An open kitchen is a well-equipped vision in statement granite. There’s plenty of storage, and the open shelves come pre-styled with a charming china collection.

The home’s lower-level bedroom is a royal affair, tucked behind a stone archway that’s fit for a Pharaoh. The closet is capacious and the opulent master bath is royal scandal-ready with a jetted soaking tub and rain shower. An upper loft offers a second bedroom with two closets and an en suite bath. An in-unit washer/dryer assures the luxuriant lair remains hassle-free.

The building housed the New York City police department headquarters from 1909-1973 and was converted into luxury residences in 1988. A spectacular marble lobby is a testament to its grandeur and a hint of the luxury within. The Beaux-Arts landmark is also known for its attentive service, including a full-time doorman, concierge and resident manager. Additional amenities include a manicured garden and a well-equipped gym. The apartment is available beginning April 1; board approval is required.
