There’s a new two-bedroom Soho loft available at 292 Lafayette Street for $2.95 million. This shabby chic corner unit has been featured in Elle Decor and is surrounded by eight oversized windows, filtering in a ton of light from southern and eastern exposures. It also has rustic details we love, like original timbers and distressed wide plank white oak flooring. The home was purchased in 2010 by its current owners for somewhere around $1.8 million.
When you enter, you’re immediately met with a large open entertaining area, which includes a custom chef’s kitchen and a living/dining room combination. The high-end kitchen includes a center island with a poured concrete slab counter, farmhouse sink, and wine fridge; custom English wooden cabinets; top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances; and a pantry. Above the island, there’s a custom Robert Ogden light fixture. The 22 x 29-foot great room has custom built-in bookshelves to match the kitchen cabinetry, as well as the woodwork in the bedrooms.
A sitting area, or library, separates the living area from the private master suite, which takes up about half of the residence. The master features a large walk-in closet, multiple linen closets, and a huge master bathroom with a marble and glass shower and an ancient Roman tub carved from one piece of marble. A second bedroom suite is located on the other side of the loft, behind the kitchen.
292 Lafayette Street is pre-wired for sound and has built-in speakers and dual-zone volume control. It also has central air-conditioning, which is undoubtedly a treat for New York’s balmy summer days. And its Soho location puts it near some of New York City’s best restaurants, shops, and attractions.
