You’ll never run out of inspiration when surrounded by this light-filled loft’s high ceilings, cast-iron columns, exposed brick, and brick masonry, among other original details. In fact, the triplex maisonette has been the subject of countless significant photography and video shoots over the last 15 years, as it was home to prolific photographer Jacob Getz, who snapped pictures of the likes of Lauren Bacall and Madonna, according to the Post.
The commercial live/work space covers nearly 5,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space in the well-run 81 Walker Street condo. Your options are plenty in this potentially four-bedroom pad. Use it as is, with separate sleep, live, and work areas or use it as a studio only. Bottom line, though, this $5.5 million loft has enough space, flexibility, and charm to use as you see fit.

“I wanted to create my own world.” Those are the words used by architect David Ling when describing the design inspiration for his Manhattan-based live/work loft. And he most definitely succeeded. As one meanders through Mr. Ling’s “rough-around-the-edges-on-the-surface-but-oh-so-refined” dwelling there are surprises at every turn, all beautifully orchestrated into three distinct areas (work/live/sleep) with the bridge and moat, plus a cantilevered second story, providing the transitional elements.

Looking at so many beautiful homes can get to be exhausting (not really) so we decided to change things up and show you a new kind of luxury. We’re not quite sure what we want to call it yet, but we’re thinking something like woodsman chic or garage chic. Either way, we’re thinking if the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were real, they would gladly shell out the $1.8 million asking price for this unit at 49 Howard Street.
Oh there’s more… here
