There’s no better apartment for a book lover than a loft. The open space and high ceilings are the perfect setting for rows of bookshelves, which also can serve as impromptu dividers throughout an apartment that lacks lots of walls. This lofty three bedroom at 50 West 29th Street in Nomad has a massive, open living and dining room that the owners are using almost like a library. There are tons of bookshelves under the 10-foot-9-inch ceilings, as well as a few used to break up the living and the dining areas.

50 West 29th Street is a live/work, 22-unit co-op building that only holds two apartments per floor–that explains this sprawling, 2,230-square-foot space. The building was constructed in 1924, and many of its old warehouse features are still on display: beamed ceilings, exposed pipes, big windows.

Bookshelves break up the living and dining area without blocking off any incoming sunlight. This main room gets light from exposures both to the north and south.

Many open lofts have the kitchen located smack dab in the middle of the “great room” –this loft, instead, has a separate kitchen that’s located off the dining area. However, there are no full walls cutting off the kitchen, ensuring that it still gets some light from the rest of the apartment. The built-in open cabinetry and green tile backsplash are unique touches. There’s also a sizable storage room off the kitchen.

The master bedroom has this great, curving wall of bookshelves as well as a wall of windows. There are five total closets in here.

In the second bedroom–more bookshelves! (The owners will have a lot of book packing to do when this apartment finds a buyer.) This bedroom also has a walk-in closet that’s almost as big as the bedroom itself.

This building is full of impressive co-op lofts, including this one, which the owners purchased in 1977 for $50,000 and slowly turned it into a beautiful home, and this ultra-modern loft that was asking $3.84 million last year. How do you think this $2.3 million one measures up?
