Last spring, 6sqft featured a pretty penthouse loft for rent in an 1840s ship house at 115 South Street. Now, the building is for sale, asking $13.25 million. The historic waterfront loft building on what was once the Street of Ships is comprised of seven rental units and ground floor retail space which is currently occupied by a chic wine boutique. The renovated building offers Manhattan waterfront living and a high income rental opportunity in a downtown neighborhood that’s on the rise.
The building is located on the water, which itself is a cool bragging point. On floors two through four are six spacious one-bedroom loft residences.
Lofts have oversized windows and gorgeous original wood floors, beams, and columns. Ceilings stretch to over nine feet on most floors. Several units offer views of the East River and the Brooklyn Bridge.
Apartments have been renovated with fine finishes like whitewashed exposed brick and wood walls, chic white marble-clad kitchens and Bosch and LG appliances. Units feature their own in-unit laundry.
The flagship of this residential fleet is the aforementioned top floor two-bedroom penthouse. The floor-through loft, once featured as a Martha Stewart home tour, has two massive skylights along with 14-foot-high ceilings, exposed timber joists, and whitewashed brick, with stunning views of the harbor and river.
When it was featured in the loft tour, the penthouse was home to the owners of Pasanella & Son, Vintners, the quaint boutique wine shop in the ground-floor retail space.
