The look is architect’s design meets artsy loft at this one-bedroom co-op in the International Tailoring Company Building at 111 Fourth Avenue in Greenwich Village. Modern finishes provide a backdrop for cool collections and funky details (like a baby blue retro Smeg refrigerator), while the overall result “exudes a refined aura of contemporary city living.” The “duplex” has a classic loft setup, meaning it’s comprised of a sleeping loft perched above the apartment’s main space.
Located at the crossroads of Greenwich Village, the East Village and Union Square, it’s not a spot for peace and quiet, but it gets top marks for supreme convenience to just about everything downtown Manhattan has to offer, which might make the $4,000 rent worthwhile. And unlike some historic loft buildings, this particular co-op offers an elevator, a doorman, laundry on every floor, and two landscaped roof decks.
1920s loft details are in full effect here, including huge steel-framed casement windows, 13-foot ceilings and hand-grooved wood plank floors. The first floor begins with a long entry gallery lined with closets, a full bath, living and dining area and kitchen, which looks snappy in custom stainless steel cabinetry to go with its Miele cooktop and oven/microwave combo.
That baby blue Smeg fridge is joined by an iconic Saarinen Tulip table and chairs. The bathroom features a large soaking tub, crisp subway tile and hand-cut trompe l’oeil floor tiles by Waterworks.
The second floor is where you’ll find the sleeping loft with a custom library loft shelf unit.
Carefully-chosen details are everywhere, including custom-designed light boxes with antique inspired Edison bulbs.
There are two elevators for convenience and two landscaped roof decks for fun; the view from the rooftops here is spectacular and the spaces are great for entertaining while not having to worry about overcrowding your apartment.
