You wouldn’t exactly know it from the exterior, but inside this two-story brick and steel warehouse is a renovated loft with all the size and flexibility anyone could ask for to create a dream home. In 2010, artist Matthew Day Jackson bought the former Studio B nightclub for $2 million. He gave it a serious makeover, creating a 15,000-square-foot live/work space, which is now asking $11 million.
The bottom level is mainly studio space, with four workspaces and a double-height central great room with 24-foot ceilings and a glass wall with access to a 3,000-square-foot courtyard. There’s also a kitchen, a freight elevator, and a garage.
The second floor has 12-foot ceilings, custom skylights, a quirky chef’s kitchen, several bedrooms, a guest suite, and an indoor/outdoor playroom with a retractable roof, sleek wood paneling, and enough open space for just about any activity. Updates include central air and heat and all new mechanicals.
