We’ll just come out and say it: this Clinton Hill loft is really cool. The 2,074-square-foot space, lined with big windows that face both north and south, takes up the entire third floor of the live-work cooperative at 93 Lexington Avenue. You’ll still find the original industrial details of the former warehouse building throughout the apartment, including an incredible copper-doored elevator. Another freight elevator, also an original detail of the building, opens directly into the apartment. It last sold in 2012 for $880,000 (slightly over the ask of $855,000) and now it’s on the market for much more, $1.575 million.
This apartment is one big, long space with a living/dining/work area at one end, a kitchen in the middle, and a large sleeping area at the other end. There’s exposed brick and hardwood floors throughout. Plus, the current owner really knew how to decorate and play off the loft aesthetic of the interior.
The kitchen’s really unique. There are three islands that are packed with cabinet space and on wheels, so they can be moved around the apartment “to accommodate individual cooking and storage needs,” as the listing says. The kitchen was designed with steel and wood finishes, as well as poured concrete counters to match the concrete backsplash. We love the open shelving above the sink, as well as those underhead lightbulbs.
Both bathrooms have the same design on display in the kitchen. One bathroom (picture above) has a full-length, concrete counter as well as a refurbished claw-foot tub. The industrial-style lights over the mirror match the remaining industrial details from the warehouse, like the old fire sprinklers. The other bathroom, according to the listing, is tiled from top to bottom.
There are even cooler old details on display in the bedroom area, like an old steel door and beams overhead. As the current owner shows, those three large windows are the perfect place to grow some greenery.
With more than 2,000 square feet, a buyer will have plenty of space to carve out fun nooks throughout the loft. This sitting nook is nestled in the corner of the bedroom. On display are copper elevator doors, original to the building. Talk about a cool loft detail in, yes, a very cool loft apartment.
