Located in what was once a cheese warehouse at 14 Harrison Street in Tribeca, this 4,500-square-foot loft has been the home of American playwright Edward Albee since 1977. According to Mansion Global, Albee held his famed annual Christmas party here, with luminaries like Lauren Bacall and Kathleen Turner in attendance. The duplex co-op spanning the building’s fifth and sixth floors is a fascinating home even without the literary connection; the classic loft, with an elevator that opens on each floor, is currently for sale asking $8.995 million.

6sqft’s series “My sqft” checks out the homes of New Yorkers across all the boroughs. Our latest interior adventure brings us to graphic designer Ksenya Samarskaya’s industrial-chic Williamsburg loft. Want to see your home featured here? Get in touch!

Ten years ago when graphic designer and typographer Ksenya Samarskaya moved into Williamsburg’s famous artist loft 475 Kent, the building and neighborhood were much different. Her view of the Williamsburg Bridge remains, but it’s now obscured by the slew of glassy towers rising along the waterfront, a literal representation of how the area has lost some of its creativity to corporate entities. And though the building has seen its share of controversy, Ksenya’s loft feels like stepping back to Brooklyn’s Millenium-era artist boom.

In true artist loft fashion, the space was completely raw when Ksenya moved in. With a little help from her friends and neighbors, she achieved the perfect balance of industrial charm and chic, minimalism. From staining the concrete ceiling and retaining the original floor and wooden beams to having custom multi-use furniture pieces designed, Ksenya created her own little oasis.

This 8,000 square-foot Tribeca triplex in the American Thread Building contains a unique New York City treasure: An original Keith Haring mural, made in 1978 during the late artist’s days at SVA when the space was a student gallery. But the massive loft is itself a treasure: Occupying the lower floors of the classic, landmarked building at 260 West Broadway–it was among the first of Tribeca’s luxury condo conversions–the loft combines modern finishes with pre-war authenticity, plus the amenities of a condominium. 6sqft featured the listing in 2016 when it was asking $13 million, which was apparently too steep for potential treasure-seekers. The home was just re-listed at $9.999 million.

Emmy Award-winning actress Patricia Clarkson has just put her Greenwich Village loft on the market for $2.5 million. The “Six Feet Under” and “Sharp Objects” star bought the lovely two-bedroom spread at 30 West 13th Street for $1,555,000 in 2007. In a 2015 interview, Clarkson said, “Most of my friends are writers and I greatly value the written word,” so it comes as no surprise that she outfitted the space with incredible, floor-to-ceiling bookshelves.

This Nolita loft is open, airy, and spans an impressive 1,800 square feet. The design is spot-on, too, complementing the lofty bones of the apartment that include vaulted, barrel ceilings and exposed brick. The building, 40 Great Jones Street, is believed to be built in the late 1800s. But everything here is thoroughly modern, from the flexible great room to the glass-panelled master bedroom.

Cool Listings, Interiors, Lower East Side

This 1,400-square-foot open loft space is located in the heart of the historic, iconic and fun Lower East Side at the corner of Eldridge and Rivington Streets at 193 Eldridge Street; the neighborhood was, a couple of decades ago, a relative bargain, rent-wise, when it was a diverse and low-key stomping ground for downtown rockers and punks. A complicated evolution of New York City’s neighborhoods means the area now counts itself among downtown Manhattan’s chicest and priciest, and this narrow but sunny third-floor walk-up loft above a former dance hall, with one existing bedroom area, is a condominium that’s asking $6,250 a month in rent.

11 Vestry Street, Cool listings, Tribeca

This two-floor loft condominium at 11 Vestry Street isn’t your ordinary downtown loft space, though it has classic bones and a covetable Tribeca address. In addition to a picture-perfect warm-modern renovation, state-of-the-art appliances and huge windows, the loft’s lower floor is a self-contained space with a second kitchen. Like any loft, it would be easy to configure the space however you’d like, but the current version–asking $6.195 million–has plenty of interesting nooks and crannies. The home’s transformation from its former outdated ’80s look by Brooklyn-based architecture and design firm Isaac-Rae was featured in Dwell magazine.
