Ozzy Osbourne Meets Hansel and Gretel in Video Director Johan Renck’s $3M Tribeca Loft
With classic industrial loft bones and downtown shabby chic interiors, this big, bold loft at 79 Worth Street in Tribeca is asking $3.1 million. At 1,909 square feet, there’s plenty of room to choose between shabby and chic, and to be fair, the decor is not only on-trend but fairly awesome.
According to records, the current owner is noted Swedish video director Johan Renck (he’s worked with everyone from David Bowie and Madonna to Karl Lagerfeld and directed episodes of “Breaking Bad”), who purchased the loft in 2009 for $1.5 million. We don’t know if he’s responsible for the apartment’s current look, but we can definitely see both a creative and a Scandinavian influence.
With airplane-hangar ceilings above cast-iron columns, oversized windows, original hardwood floors and a wealth of other authentic loft elements, the landmarked Tribeca Lofts condominiums in the neighborhood’s historic district certainly earn their name. This two-bedroom home keeps up with the times, boasting central air conditioning, a massive great room and an open custom kitchen.
The clean kitchen epitomizes the look with its subway tile backsplash, stainless steel accents, open shelving and massive central island. Appliances include a Miele dishwasher and washer/dryer and a Viking range and refrigerator (though an actual Viking wouldn’t surprise us, either.)
A split layout allows for maximum privacy–or at least as much privacy as you can get in a loft–with two huge bedrooms and two baths. The urban gothic vibe is in full elegant effect in the bedrooms, with lots of black accents, dark floral wallpaper, warm woods and industrial lighting. A floor-to-ceiling bookshelf anchors the second bedroom, while the master gets two big windows. A bathroom gets the 19th century industrial vintage treatment. Both bedrooms have ensuite baths, and there are eight closets throughout the apartment. The building also offers private storage in the basement and a virtual doorman for convenience. According to the listing, the loft is pin-drop quiet, even in a bustling downtown location, close to subways and near FiDi.
