Cool Listings, Noho

The black walls at this Noho condo don’t make the space feel as dark as you’d expect, but they do succeed in adding a subtle gritty feel to the two-bedroom home. Located at 344 Bowery, the apartment was designed by Francisca Trujillo, who, according to the listing, took inspiration from “New York’s garage-rock scene,” even hiring street artists to cover the elevator door and foyer with graffiti installations. The floor-through, two-bedroom loft is asking $3 million.

Late British actor Alan Rickman, known for, among countless other roles, playing  Severus Snape in the Harry Potter series, lived primarily in England, but he had a great affinity for New York City. When he performed on Broadway (he was nominated for a Tony Award for his role in Noel Coward’s Private Lives) he resided in his pied-à-terre in the West Village. After his passing in 2016, his estate has now listed the one-bedroom condo at 321 West 13th Street for $1,695,000. According to brokerage Compass, Rickman had “impeccable taste and a keen sense of design,” which is shown in the gut renovation he undertook after purchasing the top-floor apartment for $995,000 in 2009.

The estate of the late Nobel Prize-winning author Toni Morrison has just listed the novelist’s former home. The Tribeca loft at 66 Leonard Street is asking $4,750,000. Morrison bought the three-bedroom condo for $3,800,000 in 2014, before passing away last year. Unsurprisingly, the home has lots of built-in shelves, filled with books, moments, and art.

Just north of Green-Wood Cemetery, on the border of Greenwood Heights and Park Slope, this two-bedroom condo is asking $899,000. The apartment is located at 259 21st Street, a 1905 schoolhouse converted into lofts. The transformation left this unit with original oversized arched windows and 12.5-foot-high beamed ceilings, and the owner’s creative touch added a cool wall of built-in bookshelves that frames both of the sleeping areas.

Buildings like this one, Ansonia Court, are full of lofts will all the classic details–beamed ceilings, exposed brick, and cast iron accents. And though this unit is no different, its creative touches and charming little patio give it a bit of extra selling power. Listed for $2,180,000, the three-bedroom Park Slope co-op is spread over two floors and has bright, cheerful rooms.

Located at 76 Madison Avenue and just listed for $3,450,000, the two-bedroom apartment was renovated by renowned NYC and NOLA firm Brockschmidt & Coleman, and it has everything from hidden televisions to app-controlled lighting and shades.

Cool Listings, South Street Seaport

One of the fun things about New York City’s architecture is how hidden its history can be. Take for example 130 Beekman Street in the South Street Seaport Historic District. The five-story building was actually built in 1798, but it’s undergone several renovations over the years, and its condo units are completely modern. Just listed for $3,995,000 is the building’s crown jewel, a three-bedroom, top-floor loft with two beautiful outdoor spaces.

For someone who loves to entertain, this Tribeca penthouse 166 Duane Street can’t be beaten. First off, it’s huge–6,200 square feet inside and 1,200 square feet outside (larger than most NYC apartments!). This roof deck has several seating areas and an outdoor kitchen, and it’s adjacent to a sunroom that has a wet bar. There’s another wet bar in the media room, and when the bar runs dry, just head to the 1,000-bottle wine room.

A true Tribeca loft is not too hard to come by, but this three-bedroom home at 77 Hudson Street definitely stands out from the rest. Just listed for $2,999,000, the home has been whitewashed from floor to ceiling, giving the space a casual beachy vibe. But when mixed with all those classic loft details–beamed ceilings, stainless steel accents–this vision in white is really something special.
