An increasingly rare find these days, this quintessential artists’ loft at 51 Greene Street in the heart of Soho is available for short- or long-term leasing for $9,500 a month. The sky-lit, sun-filled, top-floor space embodies the loft ideal, yet comes with many of the comforts loft-dwellers sometimes sacrifice for all that open space. Unlike some pre-war lofts, there’s a private keyed elevator. Also unlike some live-and-work spaces, there’s a second half bath, a washer/dryer, and (at least) two bedrooms. Perhaps best of all, there’s a spacious private roof deck for gazing out on the downtown cityscape.

This 2,200-square-foot penthouse loft at the top of a six-story condominium building starts with the aforementioned convenience of keyed private elevator access.

The landmarked building dates from 1854. Inside, the full-floor space is divided into an artists’ studio/workspace and living area. Rich wood floors, high pressed-tin ceilings and a wall of windows frame the living space. White-painted brick walls keep the space feeling bright, and there’s plenty of room for entertaining.

An updated loft kitchen has an island/bar for more cooking and gathering space and is in a perfect spot to enjoy light streaming through the industrial skylight above. Everything’s updated for modern convenience, and there’s a dishwasher and a washer/dryer.

The floorplan shows three separate bedrooms, and at least one of them (the one pictured) is cozy and bright with more windows.

In the studio side of the apartment, a huge 37 x 17-foot workspace also gets the benefit of a skylight and the other wall of windows, as well as storage, a dedicated office area, directional track lighting and oceans of wall space to work with.

When you need a break, just upstairs is your own private 400-square-foot roof deck, perfect for viewing sunsets over downtown Manhattan as well as entertaining or just soaking up the sun.

The building sits on a cobblestoned Soho street, with all the good looks of the iconic downtown neighborhood plus so many of the city’s world-class designer and boutique shopping, dining, art and cultural destinations and gathering spots within blocks. You’re also surrounded by just about every subway line in the city.
