This Nolita loft is open, airy, and spans an impressive 1,800 square feet. The design is spot-on, too, complementing the lofty bones of the apartment that include vaulted, barrel ceilings and exposed brick. The building, 40 Great Jones Street, is believed to be built in the late 1800s. But everything here is thoroughly modern, from the flexible great room to the glass-panelled master bedroom.
Despite going through an earlier renovation, the apartment retains its large windows and wood flooring. The centerpiece is the 50-foot-long great room.
At one end of the great room, across from the living and dining areas, is an open kitchen with wood cabinetry, a separate pantry, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. Twin sets of French doors lead out to two private Juliet balconies, the perfect spot for a morning coffee or after-work glass of wine.
Proceeding beyond the great room, you’ll find a den for a more intimate gathering space. These flexible, open main rooms “work equally well for gatherings or relaxation,” as the listing says.
Glass-paneled, wood-frame French doors at the far end of the loft lead into the master bedroom, which boasts its own decorative wall design. The bedroom also includes a built-in sound system and custom dressing closet.
There’s an interior room with its own set of French doors now used as a second bedroom, but could be easily transformed into an office or nursery. And a distinct area off the den was designed as a play and reading room.
The cooperative building holds six apartment units and retail on the lower level. As for location, it’s nestled at the crossroads of SoHo, Nolita and Greenwich Village, a short walk away from Washington Square Park. You can see a few more images of the building and apartment in the gallery below.
