Earlier in the year, this uniquely shaped apartment at 840 Broadway was for sale by owner, asking $5.8 million. However, it appears that after months of sitting on the market and a few price drops, said owner has called in the experts at Douglas Elliman, headed up by Fredrik Eklund, to save the day. The one-of-a-kind listing, currently priced at $4.95 million, is quite the marvel, with 14 giant windows, cast-iron columns, and closet space conveniently hidden around every corner.
The 3,000-square-foot flatiron-esque unit features three bedrooms, exposed brick walls, custom millwork, and medieval-chic décor. The loft is accessible through a private elevator, which opens onto a circular foyer. Oversized windows surround the massive living/dining space, providing tons of light and a full view of Union Square. Cattycorner from the sprawling entertaining space is an open kitchen with stainless steel top-of-the-line appliances.
While one of the bedrooms is situated next to the elevator, the other two are toward the back of the loft, behind the kitchen. The turquoise master has exposed brick walls and an en suite bathroom with a walk-in closet and a remarkable shower straight out of a dystopian future.
To give you an idea of how rare this property is, the last unit to sell at 840 Broadway was as far back as 2008. The exclusive building only has 11 units, and apparently some very happy residents, as it appears no one is willing to part with their luxurious digs.
