Off the Beaten Path, This $1.8M Seaport Loft Keeps It Real

Though the appliances and fixtures are state-of-the-art, and lots of consideration has been given to comfort and daily life, this 1,000-square-foot lower Manhattan loft at 330 Pearl Street is no “loft.” It’s just the sort of authentic downtown space your cool friends lived in when they moved to the city back in the late ’80s, with its flexible open spaces (or lack of actual rooms, depending on how you look at it), industrial finishes, big windows, beams, brick, white, and custom-built almost-everything. And though it’s less common to find a loft like this on the market in the places you might have back then (Soho, Noho, Tribeca), the Seaport comprises a rare corner of the city that’s geared up for growth but still a bit undefined–perhaps the perfect spot for an authentic loft.

Standing mid-block on a comparatively nondescript street in the historic Seaport neighborhood in lower Manhattan, this fifth-floor loft offers stunning views from the top floor of a prewar elevator building–and a private terrace offers partial water views. A classic loft floor plan means a big open common space with exposed brick walls, original wood beamed ceilings and solid mahogany windows.

A high-quality chef-ready kitchen sticks with the rustic loft effect with two farmhouse-style kitchen sinks, a FiveStar range, custom-built shelving, two garbage disposals and soapstone and teak countertops.

Two quiet sleeping areas are more than enough for loft-lovers–but buyers who want more privacy have the option of adding more walls, of course. There are two wall-mounted air handlers for a roof-mounted split air-conditioning system, a wood-burning stove and nickel-plated radiators for year-round comfort.

The bath offers a steam shower and a skylight. The space has its own water filter and washer/dryer.

To help cut down on clutter with all the open space–often a concern in a loft–the issue of storage has clearly been addressed. In addition to a huge walk-in closet and custom shelves, cabinets and built-in storage everywhere, there’s a big storage area in the unit and another in the basement.

And, not so common in a loft, you can surround yourself with greenery and city views on your private balcony.

This ten-unit condominium building is planning for an upcoming (fully-funded) lobby renovation. And, as is often the case with lofts, monthly common charges are quite low at $640.00.
