In the heart of Soho, a historic loft penthouse effortlessly blends original prewar details with modern upgrades, including three enviable separate private outdoor spaces. From the double-height great room and exposed brick to the arched windows and the skylight hanging more than 23 feet above it all, the sprawling two-bedroom home at 477 Broome Street is quintessentially Soho, but with a twist. It’s now available for $3,765,000.

Upon arriving at the penthouse via a private elevator, you’ll be greeted by three lovely north-facing arched windows that fill the living area with lots of natural light and provide views of the surrounding Soho-Cast Iron Historic District. A double-height living room and open dining area make a dramatic statement.

Also on this main level is a chef’s kitchen, equipped with an ice maker, wine fridge, additional refrigerator drawers, and a large center island that doubles as a spacious breakfast bar. Both the guest suite and the home office next door boast double closets and overhead storage. The first-floor bathroom also has a washer/dryer and utility sink.

A main architectural highlight of the home is its floating glass and steel staircase. The sleek stairs bring you to the second level, where the primary bedroom is located, as well as the three private terraces. A fireplace and a primary bath with a jacuzzi tub and heated floors provide moments of zen.

Surrounding the second level of this penthouse are the three outdoor spaces, which consist of two terraces and a roof deck, the latter of which is accessed by a spiral staircase and which offers unobstructed Downtown Manhattan views.

With the city skyline as its backdrop and an outdoor fireplace and space for plenty of lounge furniture, the roof deck offers the perfect setting for soirees. And thanks to a smart WiFi irrigation control system, maintaining the plantings and Japanese maple trees found throughout the space is easy.

477 Broome Street is a five-story cast-iron building built around 1870 by H.W. Smith and Sons. According to the Landmark Preservation Commission’s 1973 designation report for the Soho Cast-Iron Historic District, notable exterior elements of the building include window bays separated by hexagonal bases and “Corinthianesque capitals” and fine leaf-pattern detail on the brackets and modillions.
