An opportunity to live in architect Ernest Flagg’s Little Singer Building may already be considered a treat by many, but take one step inside this 2,300-square-foot loft, on the market for $6,250,000, and you’ll immediately see that this particular unit has a little something extra up its sleeve. Thanks to the building’s distinctive original façade, which convenes to form an elaborate wrought iron arch right in front of unit 11A, residents and friends alike will always be able to enjoy a perfectly framed view of downtown Soho.
It’s hard not to appreciate the details of this architect-designed loft, which blends a bit of the old with the new. Original hardwood floors and French doors work with distinctive elements like custom walnut cabinetry and a Venetian plaster wall, making this space more than just a home, but a memorable work of art that pays homage to the building’s architectural presence.
This loft doesn’t waste time being coy. It greets you with its “wow” moment: a 47-foot-wide wall of floor-to-ceiling French doors that open to Juliet balconies, putting downtown Soho on display. A dining area with a ten-foot, curved, hand-carved Cedar screen wall cleverly conceals the master closets. Across from this area is the stainless steel kitchen, which is open to the rest of the living space.
The master bedroom—or sleeping area, rather—provides even more city views, while the master bathroom stuns with enviable details like an “artisan hand-chiseled New York Blue Stone wall” behind the shower and tub. A second sleeping area and bathroom with spacious laundry area are situated at the front of the home.
All those windows come with electric blinds for optimum privacy, although with views like this, we doubt you’ll use them much. And the final perk of this pet-friendly space is an 874-square-foot private roof area for your enjoyment.
