Space, volume and abundant light—those are the three virtues of this Flatiron loft apartment at 260 Park Avenue, according to its listing. When it comes down to it, we’d have to agree; it’s hard to argue with 3,287 square feet of open loft space that includes a “great room” that spans more than 46 feet, 12 enormous windows covering multiple exposures, and a master bedroom that comes with a double walk-in closet that’s probably the size of some studio apartments. This condo sits within an eight-story prewar building that long served as the headquarters of the United Federation of Teachers. Well-known economist Richard Thaler purchased it in 2012 for $5.94 million and he’s now trying to unload it for $7.895 million.

The apartment’s entryway leads right into the massive great room, which holds the open living, dining and kitchen areas. This loft retains all the great things about warehouse buildings: structural columns, soaring beamed ceilings and huge windows. (The dark walnut floors don’t look too bad, either.) Those city views look out toward the northeast.

The open kitchen is separated from the living area by a long breakfast bar. Antique lighting hanging from the beamed ceiling is a nice touch against the modern stainless steel appliances.

There are three bedrooms and four bathrooms total. Throughout the apartment, those big windows are complimented by built-in, wooden shelving. The bedroom also continues the theme of fantastic light fixtures that make each room look quite elegant.

All the bedrooms come with closets, but the master bedroom has a walk-in closet that will make you weep. Massive, with various shelving and storage options, and enough space to really walk around. Sure, a New Yorker doesn’t need all that space. But how could you turn it down when it looks so good?
