If this incredible Soho loft looks familiar, it’s likely because it’s been used as a location on “Sex and the City,” “Ugly Betty,” and the Will Smith movie “Hitch,” to name a few. It’s also been featured in numerous architectural books and commercials. We’re not surprised as to why location scouts and interior design publications flock to the sprawling, full-floor residence at 55 Greene Street, as it has all the quintessential and historic loft details one would hope for, like 15-foot pressed-tin ceilings, classic Corinthian cast-iron columns and wrap-around 10-foot-high windows. The famous three-bedroom pad is now listed as an $18,000/month rental.
The 2,900-square-foot loft is reached via a key-locked elevator that leads to the massive living/dining area, which feels even larger thanks to a crisp floor-to-ceiling white paint job. The room is highlighted by its rounded bow, a striking feature of the landmarked 1872 Gunther Building.
A renovated chef’s kitchen takes a decidedly modern approach with Calacatta marble and stainless steel countertops, brightly-colored custom cabinetry, and top-of-the-line appliances.
The master bedroom and one of the secondary bedrooms are in a separate wing on the first floor. Above, is the third bedroom and a large den, which also boasts a rounded corner.
